It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superhero Letters!

I recently created some hand painted letters in a superhero theme.  It was a really fun project, and I’m currently working on two new ones of Flash and Green Lantern.  I’ll add photos of those as well once complete. These are meant to hang on a wall, but they could rest on a shelf.  I used 9″ letters that were 1/2 inch thick, [...]

Rodger That! Decoupage Letter

I was looking for something fun, and green, to make for my living room when I came upon this scrap paper and it hit me.  So I grabbed one of the large Paper Mache letters and got to work.  You can see some photos below of the progress along with the step by step and what I will do different in the future. R is for Rodgers… 1. Paint the [...]

Corduroy, I Have Your Button!

I recently went thrift shopping and came upon a great jar of vintage buttons.  The seller had matched up all the sets and talked about them with great pride; making them an even better find.  I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them yet, but I couldn’t pass them by when I saw the jar of perfect colors.  My first project was [...]


So a big hobby of mine is making cakes.  Cakes are very time consuming, but I do have a lot of fun making them.  The crazier, the better.  I love a cake challenge.  The funny part is, of all the cakes I make, the ones that are hardest for me are the traditional style cake.  It makes me nervous if I can get it perfect and do it right (since [...]

Goodwill Hunting

I’ve recently started going to thrift stores to find items to make over into a more modern look.  I thought I’d start small and work my way up to furniture.  So I started with some jewelry boxes.  Here are two I’ve completed, along with a matching mirror, and then photos of another that is in progress.  I also have two more [...]

Personalized Christmas Ornaments

This year I wanted to make some ornaments as gifts, so my three year old and I set out to create some for the grandparents and some for cousins.  This entry is a quick how-to for the glitter ornaments we made. I have a list of supplies, the step by step and some photos.  Pretty easy and kid friendly (if young kids be sure to use plastic bulbs [...]

DIY Tile Coasters

This is a project I did because I had some spare tiles lying around the house.  I plan to make more sets to sell at craft shows but am going to make them from wood and use cork on the backings instead of felt.  But anyway, the process will be similar to this process, I’ll just have to cut the wood and sand it. The Process 1. Clean the [...]

Did you miss me? I missed you.

Well I haven’t posted in quite some time now, but it’s time to get back on this wagon.  I haven’t stopped crafting / caking, I’ve just stopped posting about it, so I have a lot of great posts to add in the next few weeks with how-to’s.  Here is a little preview of a few projects I’ve been working on.  Much [...]

Unicorns and Rainbows…in CAKE of course!

Every Girl’s Dream   Rainbows, Unicorns, Hearts and Bows, oh my. I recently made a cake for a 5th birthday. The theme was Unicorns. I had creative control on the cake, and was presented with the party decorations, as well as the dress material. I then came up with this cake, from those inspirations. I made the inside of the cake a rainbow [...]

DIY: On the Go Play-Set

As we sat in a restaurant last night with our almost 3 year old and 16 month old, I was reminded how I could really use something to keep these boys occupied while we wait for food. The youngest is at the stage that he’s throwing everything on the floor when he’s done, so needless to say we made friends with (they may choose different [...]
