Dresser Redo with Annie Sloan Paint


I have been desperately looking for a new dresser.  I found an old dresser at a local thrift store.  It was in decent condition so I took it for under $90.  Not to bad for an old solid dresser.  The dresser had good structure but the vintage 70's stain was much to be desired.  So I pulled out the old sander and went to town.

How to make Grapevine Ball Decorations



I have this crafty friend. She makes all kinds of great things on a whim.  Every time I go to her house she has something new to show me.  She is super talented at painting and jewelry making.  (Both things not my strong point.)  But one day I saw these cool grapevine orbs. She has 2 of them sitting on her porch. The first question out of my mouth, "Where did you get those?"  They were truly amazing.  Then she preceded to tell me she made them.  My heart stopped knowing I was unable to make them because the snow had already begun to fall. So no more grapevines for the season.  So I kept this beautiful spheres in the back of my mind until fall.   
So this year I have been anticipating this project!  I visited family who had grapes and harvested the vines myself and a few grapes too!

Girls Inspiration Collage Wall + Free Printable

I have been working on a little something for my daughter. Growing up is tough.  I want her to have strong role models that lift her up and make her feel good about herself, to always look for the good, have courage, know that beauty is not everything and when hard times come, to know that she can do it.
  I love collage walls. So I decided to combine my collage wall with a few inspirational quotes. The collage wall will serve as daily reminder of what she is capable of.

I love finding  simple everyday things and turning them into something amazing.   Today I am going to share how to make a pillow cover with a Dishtowel.  This project was super easy ,cheap  inexpensive and makes an adorable throw pillow for a bed or chair. Making the pillow took me about 30 minutes, with minimal sewing. Not to mention it cost me less than $5.

Royal Design Studio Stencil Review & Closet Makeover

closet makeover tag

These past few weeks have been crazy busy for me.  My kids have been out of school for spring break and that alone makes life crazy. I have had an itch to work on my closet.  It is crazy unorganized, dark and blah. It is huge and can fit 2 full sized mattresses end to end.  Let me also say “I am a blogger and I am unorganized”.  There I said it.  I may need an 8 step program or something.  I am a blogger and I am unorganized. My house is rarely tidy.  I have 4 kids and projects to do. Much more fun than walking around with a dish cloth in my hand all ..day…long. Bless those of you who do.  I am just not that type of person. I would like to be but not enough to give up what makes me happy!  So onto my unorganized closet… and a giveaway!

Burlap & Tulips...Springtime Decor

I just love springtime! I love the colors, holidays and the thought of summer just around the corner.  Here in Idaho it is still cold. Snow on the ground and more snow is coming. It's just that time of year.  A little gloomy, muddy and grey skies. I need a little spring time decor. What better way to do that than to add some colorful flowers to my front door for under $10!

Let's talk toilet paper holder covers...

 So tell me if this is you. You go to the bathroom for a self imposed time out.  You should have been put in time out and hour ago,  but alas the kids wouldn't allow it.  You finally get your time out and you realize part way through you are out of toilet paper. Sound familiar??? Then you have to all to one of your kids...to interrupt you time out to bring you some toilet paper. Well your quiet time out is over..
This is a weekly problem at my house.  My Master Bath is about the only place I get a little quiet during the day.  Maybe 5 minutes a few times a day.
So one day I was perusing my local Ross and found this... A toilet paper holder tower.

{Adore Him} Mantel


This years Christmas Mantel is is all about Nativities.  I love Christmas Nativities.  I have been collecting them for years.Countries like the  Czech Republic, Mexico, Spain and Russia. I only have a few, but I really cherish them.  The Framed art is a gift from my Husband for our First Christmas together. I added Vinyl for the "Adore Him" on the Mantel wall.  So here is my Adore Him Mantel!





I added my Little People Nativity for the kids and our Santa village.

 I used my "He is the Reason" Printable and my Shadow Box Nativity to top off the Mantel. You can find them Here and Here.

Washi Tape Ornaments




I love Washi Tape!!  I love to make projects with Washi Tape.  It is inexpensive and really packs a punch!  this season I decided to make a Washi tape Ornaments.

What you need:
Washi Tape (Michaels has great new festive tapes this season.  Just ab out any Christmas color you can think of, even gold and silver)
Foam core ( I get mine at the dollar store)
Exact-o Knife
Modge Podge
Frame
Ribbon
Opt: Vinyl saying

I first took an old frame I had and covered the glass with white paper. Missed this picture but you can just imagine it.

Next I found some ornament shapes on the Internet and printed them.  I flipped them wrong side up and covered the paper with washi tape.  Then cut them out.

Take some modge podge and glue the ornaments to a piece of foam core.  I got mine at the dollar store. Let the glue dry. Putting them on the foam core makes the jump off the page.  Not so flat.

Once the glue is dry use an Exact-o knife and cut around the edge of the ornaments. To give my ornaments a little sparkle and texture I used glitter glue pens to dot the polka dots, and lines on the washi tape. It is hard to see in the pictures but in person they look great.

Once your ornaments are cut out, place them on your frame.  I played a little with the placement until I liked it.


Add some ribbons for strings and bows with glue dots.


Once I got this far I thought I would be happy but I decided to add the Phrase Merry & Bright to my frame.  I think it finished it off perfect!!! I just love how it turned out.

Fall Mantel

I know I am a little late getting this post up.  My Mantel has been falling behind.  So many things to make and do for the holidays. Here is my simple Fall Mantel this year.

I used my Thankful trees from last year.  My Free Fall Printable. A cute set of pilgrims and 2 stacked wicker pumpkins.  I kept it simple and easy this year.  I can't believe it  is already time to decorate for Christmas.  This fall has gone by way to fast.
