I’ve always kind of had a thing for peacock feathers. I don’t know why, I just think they look really cool. So when Tulip® Body Art® sent me some face and body paint to play with, I automatically knew that I wanted to do some cool peacock feather makeup. (more…)
Okay, so I know we’ve all had a craft fail or two, right? You know how it goes, it seems like it’s going to be an easy craft, nothing can go wrong, and then it turns out looking…y’know…meh. Well, have you ever had the opposite happen? You’re not sure about a DIY project or craft, and then it turns out SO MUCH BETTER than you were expecting. That’s exactly what happened to me with these DIY Halloween lanterns. (more…)
I have a big problem…I’m addicted to Instagram! Whenever I have a free minute I’m opening it up on my phone, browsing through pictures, posting selfies, hashtagging, etc. It might not seem like such a big problem, but I’m on Instagram ALL. THE. TIME. Are you addicted to Instagram too? Well then I have the perfect Instagram contest for you! (more…)
This is just a quick DIY post on how you can paint really fancy letters to make a custom family sign for your home. I know I probably say this on every post, but it was really easy! And this is coming from a person who has the handwriting of a third grader. (more…)
I’m on a pumpkin recipe roll right now! I seriously can’t get enough of yummy pumpkin desserts. Call it being 9 months pregnant, or maybe I just have the autumn bug – either way, I must. eat. pumpkin. This week I made a pecan and pumpkin dump cake!
I have to admit, in the past my husband and I haven’t been the most fiscally responsible people. We’re more “fly by the seat of our pants” types of people than the type to sit down and discuss financial planning. BUT when we found out we were expecting a baby, all that changed. We began to think of health insurance premiums as a monthly budget essential – more like rent, less like a discretionary expense (such as entertainment). This year we started to educate ourselves about how your insurance deductible works (definitely essential when you’re going to the OB 1-4 times a month). (more…)
Hi all! I think I’ve mentioned just a few times that I’m in the middle of a major overhaul of my house. Rooms are being moved around. Craft stuff is being arranged. Nurseries are being created. It’s craziness. Part of all this craziness is trying to make sense of all the craft stuff that has been haphazardly thrown into the craft room, which must now all be moved to a new craft room. And of course, I want it to all be carefully organized in a neat, yet cute, way. (more…)
Can I take a minute and just tell you how much I love fall? Seriously. It’s my favorite season. I can’t get enough of the cool, crisp weather and the falling leaves, and I love, love, love pumpkins. I like carving pumpkins, I like decorating the house with pumpkins, and I like pretty much any recipe that involves pumpkin. (more…)
Hi all, so if you know me at all, you know that I love Dollar Tree. In fact, I’ve posted many times about crafts that I’ve made using Dollar Tree items. So it should come as no surprise that I’m super excited about the Dollar Tree Anniversary Celebration featuring $1 Bonus Buys with up to 58% more for FREE with each item. (more…)
Sometimes I get a little jealous of my husband because his workplace is so much more fun than mine his. This week, he and his co-workers had a macaroni and cheese cook off! You could cook whatever kind of macaroni and cheese recipe you wanted, as long as it had the two main ingredients: macaroni and cheese. I was recruited to help him out with his recipe, and together we came up with the idea of BLT macaroni and cheese cupcakes. (more…)
