Flannel Lavender Heat Pack with Washable Cover

Not wanting my mom to get bored during her visit, and being the sweet daughter that I am, I lined up a few projects for her to work on while she’s here. 🙂 My feet are always cold, so one of the projects I had in mind for her was to sew up a microwaveable lavender heat pack. I’ve been using an old pillow case filled with rice as a makeshift heat pack, and not only was it ugly, it {Read More}

Decoupaged Galvanized Bucket

I promised I’d show you the project I made using one of the milk cap image printables I shared yesterday, so I got up early this morning to take photos of this decoupaged bucket in the kitchen, when the sunlight is so pretty shining through the window.

DIY Farmhouse Photo Coasters

Have you all just wandered around a home improvement store lately?  I’m telling you, even if you don’t have a DIY house project to work on, you’ll still walk out with project ideas you never knew you wanted to make. Last week when I was in Lowes getting beadboard for my drawer-turned-farmhouse cabinet, I was browsing the end caps on my way up to the cash register, …and there it was – the next project I had NO idea I wanted to make. {Read More}

Keeping Time

It was a quiet day at my house today.  The 3 oldest kids were all at work, and my teenager left to stay with a friend, so it was just hubby and I at home. I thought about going to the flea market, since I haven’t been there yet this year, but one look at the forecast convinced me that it wouldn’t be fun walking around during a downpour and thunderstorm. So, since I don’t have any great finds to {Read More}

Stenciled Drop Cloth Pillow and Down Time

My stencil sales have been coming in at a somewhat slow and steady pace, which was fine, because it was a pace I could keep up with.  Then BAM, as soon as I introduced the Milk & Cream Co. stencil design, orders started pouring in.  I wasn’t prepared to get so many orders so quickly and I spent the weekend up to my ears in Milk and Cream. Of course, that’s a very good thing, but by yesterday I was exhausted, and in dire need of {Read More}

Image Transfer on Glass

Yesterday I showed you my new twine dispenser with an antique graphic on it, and I promised that today I would share how to add an image transfer on glass.  You’ll never throw an empty food jar away again, once you see how easy it is to do! Although the process is similar to doing a regular image transfer, there is no transfer medium used, and the image isn’t permanent, so it’s also like putting a removable decal on glass. Let’s get started!

Pallet Wood Bathtub Table

I’m a die-hard bathtub soaker, and always have been.  If I had to guess, I’d say that at least 75% of my blog posts have been written while soaking in my bathtub.  It’s the one place in the house where I don’t get distracted by people, the tv, or the phone, so I can concentrate, and relax at the same time. A bathtub table is a must for me, and I’ve had several of them over the years.  Both were made my {Read More}

Pallet Wood Wall Rack for Coats, Hats and Storage

Remember my repurposed books coat rack that I made last year?  Well, it’s been hanging in our entryway, and my husband uses it to hold his hats.  It looks great there, but the reason I hung those pretty vintage dictionary pages on the wall is that what’s underneath them is very flimsy paneling.  I had hoped the paneling would be strong enough to support the weight of the books, but it wasn’t, and the screw holding one side kept stripping out of the paneling {Read More}

Autumn Photo Transfer to Wood

Did you take any photos this autumn, while the pretty leaves were still on the trees?  I’m so glad I did.  It’s a great excuse to get outdoors and enjoy the beauty that surrounds my home.  Two of my favorite shots were of the view looking down the gravel road that’s in front of our house.  One of the shots was taken on a beautifully foggy morning, and the other was taken on a bright and sunny day.  Taking photos doesn’t {Read More}

DIY Family Names Framed Print

DIY Family Names Framed Print This family names framed print makes a great Christmas or Mother’s Day gift and is so easy and inexpensive to make. I was inspired by some similar ones I saw on Pinterest, and wanted to come up with my own variation of it.  I always feel a little bit justified for the time I spend on Pinterest, when I actually *make* something I pinned on one of my boards! To create this, you’ll need a frame, card stock paper, {Read More}
