    How To Make An Easter Bunny Wreath

    Hi Friends! I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend. Temps were mild here, but it finally feels like Spring is on it’s way! Which means that it’s time to break out the spring decor and make a few new items for Spring. Today I’m sharing how to make an Easter Bunny wreath! Have you seen all of the cute bunny wreaths that are on Pinterest right now? One of my favorite was one made using pom poms! So cute. However, in full disclosure, I’ll admit that there was no way that my attention span would allow me to make that many pom poms. So this girl decided to…

    Cleaning Up After Christmas

    It’s funny how a project can take on a life of its own. We recently started a mini makeover in a guest bathroom. Everything was rocking right along until I pulled a muscle in my hip. Now everything, including cleaning up after Christmas, has come to a slow crawl. After a few days on the couch, I was determined ( and bored out of my mind!) to get a few things done. Things that I don’t have to bend over, twist, or lift to do. The first of which is getting my Happy Planner decorated for February. I always try to keep my planner ready a least a month or…

    Another Christmas Craft

    I have another Christmas craft to share with you, just one more. I promise. Again, like last time, it’s an easy one. Which sometimes are my favorite kind!  Every year I try to make, or buy, something small for all of the women in my family. This year I decided to make leather earrings! I found this “faux” leather here. It is the perfect weight and thickness for cutting on my Silhouette. Cutting out the earrings was super simple. Simply choose a design in the Silhouette design catalog, edit the size, and cut them out. Since I was making over a dozen, I cut multiples out at once. The sampler…

    What Happens at the Christmas Party

    What happens at the Christmas party, stays at the Christmas party. Especially the Queen’s Christmas party! When the Queens get together it’s always fun, this year was no exception. We ate, laughed, cried, told crazy stories, made a craft and had a cookie exchange.  In other words, a normal night with the Queens!

    How To Make Damask Pumpkins

    I promised that I wouldn’t share any more pumpkins with you this fall. However, I saw some recently and thought “Hey, I could make those”. Then I thought that maybe you would like to make some too.  So today I’m sharing how to make damask pumpkins! These mini pumpkins were super easy to make and are the perfect decoration in my dining room.

    Mason Jar Door Hanger

    Have you noticed all of the cute door hangers lately? They are everywhere! If you haven’t  just check out Pinterest. It certainly has a ton to look at for inspiration. I’ve been looking for a small gift to give my sweet sisters and came across the perfect thing. A Mason Jar Door Hanger! I found several cute mason jar door hangers but none were exactly what I was looking for, so I decided to make my own!

    Ticket Shadow Box

    I don’t know about you, but I have always made scrapbooks and hung onto memorabilia.  I love looking back at pictures and reminders of all of the good times. At the same time, I have to have organization for all of that stuff. I won a shadow box at PoKeeno  and thought that it would make a perfect ticket shadow box!  You know for all of your movie tickets, programs, and playbills. This is the shadow box that I won. The idea was that I would hang it in the game room right outside of the media room doors.  Kinda like giving your tickets to the usher before entering the…

    Make Your Own Napkin Rings

    It’s time to decorate the kitchen table for fall. I’ve been putting it off because I had such a hard time with the formal dining room. Or maybe I am just waiting till it’s time to decorate for Halloween. It couldn’t possibly be because I am lazy. Right? I know..such a third world problem! I think that I am on overload with “stuff”. I am ready to simplify, but let’s face it that word isn’t usually in my vocabulary. I wanted something different from what I have used in the past, I just couldn’t find it. So I decided to make the things I couldn’t find that I wanted to…

    My Redneck Pool

    Remember when I shared my patio cover and new lights this year and you could see part of a “crop circle” in the photo?  The crop circle is the pad for my redneck pool. ( It’s only redneck because I thrive on super tacky pool decor!) I am a water dog. Texas summers have three temperatures – hot, humid and hotter. Some days I feel more like a lizard on a rock rather than a water dog. So a pool is high on this girls priorities.  We plan on moving in the next couple of years so an in the ground pool just doesn’t make sense financially. So  I did…

    Summer Wreath

    Okay, so it’s not officially summer yet, but a girl’s gotta be prepared. Right? It’s time to get new flip flops and swimsuits. Dust off those shorts. Get out the big glass gallon pickle jar to make sweet sun tea. (If your not from the south and have no clue, it’s how we brew our tea. Outside, in the sun.) Time to spruce up the yard and plant new flowers. While I was sprucing up the yard, I realized two things: my front door needs a new coat of paint and I need a new fun wreath to welcome summer. So what does a girl do when in search of…

    Burlap Wreath for Spring

    Hello!  The weather this week has been so beautiful that I have to admit that I haven’t done much painting.  I have been working in my yard getting it ready for summer.  Yes! Spring is FINALLY here! When I was working on my front entry I decided to make a new  burlap wreath for the front door.   I am probably the last person on earth to make a burlap wreath.  Sometimes it takes me a long time to get on the bandwagon for the latest trend.  I don’t know why…I just roll that way. Here she is in all her spring glory!   I guess I did do a…
