Making Rose Soap

For generations, roses have symbolized love, passion, and romance. Many consider a rose to be the official flower of Valentine’s day. The flower has been featured in many forms of media, taking center stage in mushy movies and television shows, sometimes even playing a symbolically notorious role, as in the film ‘American Beauty’.

Being such a popular flower, and one that smells good, it isn’t a wonder that roses and their scent have been incorporated into soap.…

Three Chair Bench

My friend emailed me a few pictures of a dining room set she wanted to try and update. The first thing I thought of when I saw the chairs was that we HAVE to upcycle them into a chair bench.  I first saw this idea on an HGTV show (I can’t remember which one but I’m thinking it was Home Made Simple…sorry!). The minute I saw the episode, I recall wanting to go to the Salvation Army or…

Cute Valentine Ideas for the Classroom

I know I have a while until my little one starts going to school, but I can’t help but be excited to participate in all the fun classroom activities. I recall that Valentine’s Day was one of my favorite holidays in grade school. That week, we would make “mailboxes” out of old shoe boxes to prepare for all the Valentine’s Day goodies coming our way. Even though I knew that every kid gave a Valentine to everyone in the class.  I still got excited to receive one from the…

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 literally scrolled through over 2000 items and these were my favs! Here we go! Read more:…

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…
