Repurposed Lighting Inspiration

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…

Etsy Valentines

Valentine’s Day is almost here and for me, it’s my Birthaversentine (Birthday, Anniversary, and V day all within 10 days of one another… I know I know… didn’t quite think that through. I did, however, make it clear to my husband that one gift doesn’t cover all three). Soooo, I thought I’d give some shout outs to my favorite Etsy Valentines handmade crafts. I literally scrolled through over 2000 items and these were my favs! Here we go! Read more:…

Fiber and Fire

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…

Family Photo Wall

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…

Baby Shower Message Cards

This project was SUPER easy, but since I did it, why not put it on my blog? One of my very busy friends was throwing baby shower for her girlfriend and I gladly made these for her so she would have more time to do other projects.  She showed up at my house with all the supplies, and with the help of my craft closet, I busted them out in a couple hours while I watched The Biggest Loser.

Long Beach Antique Swap Meet

Every time I attend the Long Beach Antique Swap Meet I have the best time. This time, last weekend, I went by myself and I STILL loved every second of it.

Repurposed Crates Ideas

A few months ago, I did a blog post on recycling old crates.  It included using crates for shelving, bike baskets, and side tables.  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…

Recycled Magazine Bowl

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.  In this case, my fruit bowl turned into a… ummm……

Recycled Paper Flower Magnet

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…

DIY Ribbon Board

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…
