Ombre Trinket Box Upcycle

So my mom is getting ready to make the big move from my home town to my current town! I’m super excited to have her close, as are my littles. We’ve been helping Grammy look for a new place to live; but with that comes cleaning out the old to get ready to sell. So in the clean out process, we came across some goodies she was going to [...]

Fun With The Littles @ Lowe’s Build & Grow

As a SAHM, I am always looking for ways to have fun on the cheap.  In this search I discovered a great blog called Indy With Kids. They share so many great free/cheap events that happen in and around Indianapolis.   That’s where I learned about the Lowe’s Build & Grow program.  On some Saturday mornings they offer a free [...]

#1 Fan! Go Team!

This one is for the little (or not so little) fan in your house.  Do they have a sports room or bar, or dare we say the ole Man Cave?  These sports themed letters are a fun way to show your love of all sports.  Make them in whatever sport; I plan to work up samples for Tennis, Golf, and Hockey soon.  Do a name, initials, a city or school.  [...]

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, [...]

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: 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 [...]

I’m TOTALLY making this!

This may be the coolest thing I’ve ever seen! I think I’ll use the phrase correctly, unlike Elissa from Big Brother 15…I’m OBSESSED!  I saw this little gem when a friend pointed out the Lowe’s Build and Grow program where your child can go in to a workshop and build their own Toy Story car, for FREE!  But anyway, [...]

It’s My Room, TAKE 2

VIEW THE GALLERY OF NAME SIGNS! **  10/11/16 — I am working on an UPDATED HOW TO for these signs.  I will be making a video and have better details/photos of the process.  I will also have links to purchase the needed supplies.  Please CHECK BACK SOON! ** So almost a year ago now I made some cute name signs to hang on each of my [...]

It’s that time of year…I <3 Gardening!

Well I’ve always had a green thumb for my indoor plants, but since I’ve only owned for 3 years now, I don’t have a ton of experience with outdoors or vegetable gardens. Two years ago I ripped out a ton of bushes and planted flowers, ornamental grasses, hastas and more. I’m happy with the layout, however, my tulips failed to [...]
