Sports Themed Name Decoration

How many kids LOVE sports? I know my littles do! So I’ve worked up some 12″ letters to hang on a wall in a sports theme. In this posting I will show how I made the name Quinn in the sports: Basketball, Soccer, Football, Baseball and Tennis. I will tell you where to find the supplies needed, or how you can place an order and have me [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]

Operation Cut Door in Half

…and let the light in! We have a tri-level house and on the bottom floor is our laundry room and half guest bathroom.  You have to go through the bathroom to get to the laundry room and the only window is in the laundry room, so I wanted to be able to keep that door open to let sunlight in to the bath and to our downstairs living room.  [...]

Living Room Makeover

Lots of PHOTOS BELOW! If you follow this blog at all, you know that almost three years ago we bought a new (old) house. It was built in 1963 and hadn’t been updated much. Since we’ve moved in, I’ve been slowly updating the house.The first project was the living room. As you can see there were old shelves on the fireplace, and the [...]

Giant Ruler Growth Chart – DIY

So when we moved into our house in the garage on the wall is where the family before us marked the growth of their children.  When re-painting the garage, it gave me a sad feeling that the history on the wall was about to disappear forever.   It made me hope that they had gotten some good photos of it to save forever. A few months later, our [...]

It’s my house!

You may have seen one of my other crafts…It’s my room!  Well this is the grown up version of that craft.  It’s the family plaque/sign.  For these I made the family as my corner image.  You could do something different, like a solid color house or something similar to the style in the kids version of this craft, if you feel [...]

It’s my room!

{DIY} or {BUY} – make your own, or buy one from me… We recently painted and re-decorated our entryway and stairway.  One of my craft projects for this change was to make name plates for the boys doors.  Below you will see photos of what I created as well as links to purchase any supplies you would need to create this craft [...]
