30 Incredibly Sweet Easter Foods to Make

30 Incredibly Sweet Easter Foods to Make

Easter is one the best crafty times of year, even above Valentine’s Day (my favorite holiday) and Christmas, but other than sewing or making crafts (especially for the children) or hiding Easter eggs for the kids (usually with some money in the plastic eggs for the kids), I don’t go all out with making food.  So these sweet Easter foods are totally awesome!! None of these tutorials are for dyeing Easter eggs — only for some yummy treats.  I’m in awe of the creativity and thoughtfulness of these Easter foods. 🙂  Hoppy Easter, everyone! Continue Reading →

Here Comes Peter Cottontail: Making an Easter Bunny Plushie

Here Comes Peter Cottontail: Making an Easter Bunny Plushie

I decided to join Tiny Sidekick’s Pinterest Challenge. This is where bloggers were challenged to create something that they pinned.  Since it is close to Easter, I went to search for Easter Bunny Craft Ideas.  I created this plush bunny, an easy Easter craft to make.  It’s such an easy to sew pattern!  Especially since it uses felt, which makes it very easy for little fingers (if you are completing this Easter project with children), or adults with fat fingers (like me). I traced the template and ironed it onto plush material.  Sorry for the blurry picture. 🙁 Here are all … Continue Reading →

House Organizing & Upcycling Curtains

House Organizing & Upcycling Curtains

I have been furiously trying to declutter my house.  Mainly due to spring fever but also because I am part of the 4 Weeks to a More Organized Home Challenge.  One of the projects I tackled this past week is organizing the cabinet underneath my kitchen sink, which is a total mess.  (Sorry that I didn’t get a before picture!) I bought this pedestal sink organizer to store all those cleaning things that were previously under the kitchen sink cabinet. Here it is installed.  Nice and neat, but also nice and ugly. Underneath the kitchen sink looks nice too.  Trash, … Continue Reading →

4 Weeks to a More Organized Home Challenge: Week 1 Update

4 Weeks to a More Organized Home Challenge: Week 1 Update

I am participating in Crystal Paine’s 4 Week to a More Organized Home Challenge.  I will preface this by saying that I utterly failed this week on all of my cleaning expectations.  It’s the end of the week and my house is a mess. What happened???  I had such dreams of a clean, clutter-free house! Be Realistic. Anxiety comes when your reality does not meet your expectations.  Therefore, the easiest solution to having a cleaner home is to lower your expectations for perfection. You might think that this is just the opposite or counterproductive, but it is not.  When I … Continue Reading →
All-Natural Homemade Lotion

All-Natural Homemade Lotion

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with making my own beauty supplies, so you will probably start to see a bunch of blog posts about my attempts.  One of the first things that I need is some lotion.  The winter always dries out my skin, and I have very dry skin anyway. This recipe is very easy and I have to say, the lotion melts into your skin and makes it super soft.  The best part is, you can get all the ingredients on Amazon. You will need: 1/2 cup avocado oil (you can also use extra virgin olive oil, grapeseed oil, … Continue Reading →
Upcycle a T-Shirt Into a Simple Heart Scarf

Upcycle a T-Shirt Into a Simple Heart Scarf

We have another Valentine’s Day post today.  This one you can do in about five minutes.  If you have to work on V-Day, you’ll be ready to wear something to the office and keep warm. Do you remember this red t-shirt from last week’s upcycled Valentine’s Day heart t-shirt post?  To make this scarf, the best material is a man’s shirt because they do not have side hems. Cut off the bottom of the t-shirt, wide enough for a scarf.  Don’t worry about hemming the material since t-shirts don’t require hemming. Now, cut off the bottom.  Again, we’re not going … Continue Reading →
Refashion a Faded T-Shirt Into a Heart Cut-Out for Valentine’s Day

Refashion a Faded T-Shirt Into a Heart Cut-Out for Valentine’s Day

Today we’re going to upcycle a t-shirt.  Like most stay-at-home or work-from-home moms, I don’t get dressed up every day.  I really don’t have a need to dress up. This might seem kind of funny since I run a blog that has a lot of recycled clothing. Also, if you are like me, then you have some of these faded-out t-shirts hanging around.  Perfect for refashioning those t-shirts into something cool! Continue Reading →
