The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Make a Farmhouse Barn Quilt Block Sign with Step-by-Step Tutorial

Do you remember when I wanted a barn quilt, but I soaked in my bathtub while my son drew all the painting lines for me? And do you remember the time I had to patch 100 screw holes in my kitchen because I had drilled so many screws into the walls?

50th Birthday Thoughts & DIY Burlap Farmhouse Shopping Bag

Today is my 50th birthday. Wow … that’s just weird to say. It seems like yesterday I was half that age, full of youthful energy and busy with a toddler. It would be easy to make jokes about aching knees, failing eyesight, and sagging “girls,” but I won’t. Of course, all those things are true, but instead I prefer to focus on what I’m grateful for. I’m grateful to have two legs that take me where I want to go. My knees {Read More}

Well, hello 2017.  It’s so nice to meet you! If you’ve followed Knick of Time during the last year, you know that 2016 was a kinda’ rotten year for our family.  So I hope the door smacked it in the rear on its way out! 🙂 Between losing my mother-in-law in January, losing my dad in March, and my mom getting diagnosed with cancer in the midst of all that, getting inspired to work on projects was hard to do.

Farm Fresh Milk New Stencil Design

Would you think I’m a grouch if I said I’ll be a bit relieved when Christmas is over and things get back to normal (or as normal as things ever get in my house)? I love Christmas.  I really and truly do. I’ve tried to wish every bell ringer and cashier I see a “Merry Christmas,” I baked (and ate) a ton of chocolate kiss cookies rolled in sugar sprinkles, I put fresh evergreens in every nook and cranny in my house, and {Read More}

Glowing Mason Jar Luminaries DIY Christmas Tote

When I was a little girl, one of my favorite things to do at Christmas time was to lie underneath the Christmas tree and stare up at the glowing colored lights. Nine times out of ten, I’d drift off to sleep lying there, while visions of kiss cookies and Christmas presents danced in my head. I’m too big to get under the tree now, so I came up with two easier ways to enjoy Christmas lights around the house. Remember {Read More}

Have you ever watched adorable little children waiting in line for their turn to sit on Santa’s lap, then one of those sweet little cherubs climbs on and proceeds to pull Santa’s beard and push on his belly, just to see if it’s real? Well, if our new little cat was a child, she’d be THAT child. Don’t let looks deceive you. She looks sweet now, but you don’t know what she’s put me through today. I was trying to {Read More}
