Everywhere I go, I always have my camera. Not only do I want to capture fun moments with my daughter, family, and friends, but I find decorating inspiration EVERYWHERE. I end up filing my pictures in digital folders on my computer.
I just noticed that I had taken several pictures of lighting ideas and thought I’d share them. Some of these pictures are old, but in my head, the store bought version is way too expensive anyway. I’d rather try and recreate them…

Oh my gosh… I can’t stand it! I am obsessed with the craftsmanship and knack for design of this talented mother and daughter team, Patricia and Andrea also known as Fiber and Fire.
I was doing my usual rounds of blog exploration one day and I came across Fiber and Fire on Picket Fence Blogs. The Ad button alone caught my eye. I clicked on the link and scrolled down each post and several clicks later I was inspired. Wishing I lived close enough to attend one of…

I was pretty happy after I sat back and looked at my family photo wall, so I decided to blog about it. My friends seem to ask me for tips all the time on the subject, and my friend Jenny and I are known for rearranging photo walls at our mutual friend’s homes.
If you want to see more, I’ve blogged about How To Arrange Art and I also did a post on a…

Maps are so beautiful. I’ve been looking for some ways to use them because I see them everywhere (including my glove box). Just like CD’s, record albums, and books, they are becoming obsolete due to the…

Since then, I have gathered a collection of old wine crates from a wine tasting party I did in October. I’ve been searching for more inspiration for a new project and found some other great repurposed crate…Continue

Awe man! This project was a lot tougher than I thought. Ever since I made that recycled magazine frame, I have wanted to make something else out of magazine pages. When I first had this recycled magazine bowl project in my head I pictured a large shallow fruit bowl. Let’s face it, not all DIY projects turn out exactly like you want them to.

After making a Hollow Book Safe out of antique books that I inherited, I kept the left over pages in case I wanted to use them to make other craft projects. I ended up making these cute Paper Flower Magnets out of a few of the recycled book pages and beer bottle caps.
I actually made these book page flowers a few months ago but I wanted to wait to post the tutorial…

I always see these cute ribbon boards at gift shops, catalogues, and craft fairs. They are great for organization for an office or (in my case) my daughter’s room. I made it for items such as her hair bows, clips, and photographs.
Another reason I wanted to make this DIY Ribbon Board is because the my daughter’s first baby blanket was getting worn out by the washing machine and I wanted to preserve it somehow, without hiding it in a keepsake trunk where no one…
