Glitter Paper State Wall Art

Glitter Paper State Wall Art

I am sure that you have seen these floating around Pinterest, DIY State Wall Art ideas, but when I went hunting most of them used paint and I do not paint.  Well I can paint like a 3 year old but thats about the extend of my painting techniques so precise straight lines are just not in my wheel house but I really wanted to make a Nebraska sign for the wall!  So I went back to Pinterest and started digging.  There were a lot of ideas, and a lot used glitter. Now, I love glitter as much as the Continue reading

Sewing, and Lucy, and Bread, oh my!

Do you ever just have one of those weeks where everything is so completely random?  That is how this week has been at our house.  Nothing terrible or dramatic has happened, it has just been random. We should begin, at the beginning of the week.  Sunday evening I spent, with our neighbors granddaughter.  She is in town for a couple of weeks, and so when their work schedules overlap she is coming over to our house.  We started off trying to hook up the Wii but no luck, with Hubs working and my Continue reading

Dishwasher Safe Glitter Coffee Mug

Dishwasher Safe Glitter Coffee Mug

I love coffee mugs and collect them on my Coffee Mug Display Wall.  It is amazing, and reminds me of all the wonderful people who have given me coffee cups over the years.  Plus it leaves some room available in our cabinets.  I love giving coffee mugs as gifts as well, which is why I ended up creating this DIY dishwasher Safe glitter coffee mug.

I started with a plan to use the denim placemats that Hubs' Grandma gave me a few months ago. Continue reading

DIY Patriotic Vase

DIY Patriotic Vase

This week I have been setting up our summer table for the dining room.  It changes every season, and I went with a Red, White and Blue theme for summer.  What I noticed after taking the first few photos, is that there was something missing from the table.  It needed height, and something in the middle.  Then my Mom was on Facebook sharing a million things and shared a photo of painted mason jars!  It was perfect, except we do not have any unused mason jars.  That is when I remembered that we had Continue reading
