If you’ve been around here any length of time, you know that I love sparkle. Usually it’s things that have glitter. That sparkle doesn’t always have to be glitter, though. Take this Simple Tinsel Ornament for Christmas. These easy diy ornaments are so simple to […]
I love paper. I always have, and I probably always will. The colors, the textures, the different weights, and finishes…I could go on and on waxing poetic about it. Garlands have become so popular in recent years, and one of the best things to make […]
It’s that time of year again when the mosquitoes are out in droves. I don’t know about you, but I am one of those people that they just seem to love feasting on. This makes entertaining outdoors kind of difficult. That’s where these DIY Mosquito repellent candles come in.
While I do use insect repellents, sometimes it’s nice to not have to lather yourself in some kind of chemical compound just to enjoy the outdoors. Don’t worry if you’re not a DIY master. This is one of those projects that are so easy, and so simple, that literally anyone can do it.

I’m one of those people that’s always chosen to do something small for New Year’s Eve. When I was a kid, my mom would have all the other kids over while their parents went out. As I got older, I still enjoyed those types of […]
I love the Christmas spirit. Each year, I convince myself that I’m going to decorate the whole house. Somehow, though, each year, time seems to slip away from me. One easy way to decorate in a jiffy, and on a budget, is with free Christmas printables.
My personal aesthetic is a little more retro-vintage chic, and I adore what I call the “new modern” or retro Christmas colors. These are slightly whimsical shades of lime green, magenta, aqua, and some gold. This Be in Good Cheer Christmas printable, with these shades and the slightly whimsical-retro trees, is a perfect piece to fit into my decorating theme.
I have always had a thing for yarn, ever since I can remember. I’m sure it doesn’t hurt that the crafty and creative genes run deep along both sides of my family tree. These little fluffy sheep ornaments are a project that we made when […]
I don’t have a clock in my office. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Oh sure, I have a clock on my computer, or on my phone. But an actual clock that I can see what time it is when I’m working on something? Nope. I decided it was time to change that with this cute DIY flower wall clock.
Yeah, I could have just bought any old clock. Or even a kitschy cool clock that would be awe-some in my office. I could have even put the base clocks up as-is, all plain like. HA! No I couldn’t have. Even I know that would never work.
I love the sparkle. I mean, that’s pretty obvious, right? Glitter, bling, metallics…oh yeah…As long as it has little glitz or glam, I’m digging it. It still has to be sophisticated, though. Those old bedazzled jean jackets? I’m not really digging those. Gold leaf? That […]
