How to Clean a Stainless Steel Sink

I have to be honest with you guys. I have a love/hate relationship with my kitchen.  I’m really not a big fan of my granite countertops.  I like the granite part, just not the colors and pattern.  I have dark cherry cabinets, which are fine, but the combination of the dark counters and dark cabinets […]

DIY Disposal Sharpener and Cleaner

DIY disposal sharpener and cleaner-6

For years, we’ve been buying that plink stuff to freshen our disposal, and I finally thought with my actual brain for just half a second. Surely, I could make something at home that would do the same thing… and since ice is “supposed” to sharpen your disposal blades, maybe I could do one even better. […]

Where I Blog {and random thoughts from my brain}

where i blog

I realized that when I was writing my post about the DIY Pendant Light, that I really haven’t shown you guys much of where I actually blog. It’s a very simple space in my Office/Craft Room.  Yes, I’m so lucky to have my very own room to work in.  I’m getting closer to being done […]

How to Make an Animated GIF in Photoshop


I don’t make animated GIFs very often, but I think they are super fun to create and use here on the blog. You can see a few in action in my post I wrote about making tissue paper tassels. It’s like making a video without having to talk or be on camera. I am using […]

How to Make Tissue Paper Tassels

I’ve been working on my office update for ummm…almost a year now. Yikes. I tend to get sidetracked by laundry and instagram and, well, eating that I’ve just not quite finished it up yet. I finally got around to making this amazing tissue paper garland.  It completes me in a way that chocolate lattes just can’t. […]

Glitter Heart Magnets

glitter heart magnets-10

I love being surrounded by hearts.  I may get one tattooed on my face, so when I look in the mirror, I’ll see a heart there. Just kidding.  Tattoos aren’t my thing, but sometimes I kinda wish they were.  But then I don’t.  It’s a vicious cycle. So, instead, I just made some sparkly, glittery […]
