Wishbone Wall Art

Wishbone Wall Art

Happy November friends!  This year is just flying by and I can't believe it's already November.  These next two months are my absolute favorite months of the year.  The changing of seasons, and all things warm and cozy make me feel so much joy.  I thought today I would share a fun and easy Thanksgiving themed project, although with the current trends you could use it in your everyday decor.  I'm loving how this Wishbone Wall Art turned out, and like I said it was pretty easy to make. Supplies: -  Any type of fabric, but a thicker fabric will work better -  Gold Acrylic Paint -  Freezer … [Read more...]

DIY Sleepy Hallow Halloween Sign

DIY Sleepy Hallow Halloween Sign 6

Hi friends!  I can't believe it is October already!  Bring on the Halloween Decor!  Today I'm sharing this cute DIY Sleepy Hallow Halloween Sign with you. I was recently hanging out with one of my best blogging buddies and we happened to be thrifting it up at our local Goodwill store. I came across this pretty typical Halloween sign that I'm sure was from a craft store as a pre-made sign you could purchase.  It just wasn't my style but I liked the jagged cut wood and the possibility of what it could be.  So I snagged it for $3.  I knew one thing for sure, I wanted a black and white sign.  So … [Read more...]

2013 Salt Lake Parade of Homes

2013 Salt Lake Parade of Homes

August is one of my very favorite times of year...I know that fall is right around the corner (my favorite season), the weather starts to cool down, football season kicks off and the annual Salt Lake Parade of Homes showcases the latest and greatest in home architecture and design. For those of you who may not be familiar, the Parade started in Salt Lake City in the late 40's and is an event now held all over the United States. It is a showcase of new construction and high-end remodels. It's fun to walk through the homes, though I never get to them all as they are spread throughout the … [Read more...]

I don't know about you guys but I love taking something unexpected using a little imagination and creating something useful out of it.  I've had some ugly dollar store stove burner covers sitting in my garage for about a year.  I knew all along what I wanted to do with them, create a tiered jewelry stand.  Today I'm showing you how easy it is to take Stove Burner Covers and turn them in to a DIY Jewelry Stand.  Supplies:  -  Dollar Store Stove Burner Covers {Dollar Tree} -  Large Unfinished Wood Spools {Hobby Lobby} -  Unfinished Wooden Round Ball with Flat Bottom {Hobby … [Read more...]

Outdoor Water Activities for Kids

Outdoor Water Activities for Kids

As much as I love being off schedule during the summer, my home pays for it with piles of shoes by the door, swimsuits and towels strewn across the floor and extra mounds of sand in the carpet. It's freakishly amazing the record time in which my five-year-old and her friends can destroy the toy room. That's why most days I do my best to shoo them outside, and these awesome outdoor water activities are the perfect enticement to do so. ... ... 12 Outdoor Water Activities for Kids ...

Vintage Camper Makeovers

Vintage Camper Makeovers

I am definitely NOT a camper. Okay, so I was a camper when I was little and my parents did all the work. We're talking tent setup and take-down, scrambled eggs and pancakes on the Coleman stove, dishes done in separate buckets of soapy and clean water and chaperoning us via flashlight to and from the bathroom. That so isn't my thing as a grownup. We have yet to take our four kids camping—and I'm sure it has something to do with my aversion to dirt, bugs, campfire smoke, more dirt and more bugs. But I could be seriously tempted to head up the canyon if we were towing on of these … [Read more...]
