Planting Bulbs Without Digging

I was finished with all my planting. Until I went to Lowes on Sunday. Once I got home, I regretted my impulse buy of flower bulbs. I did not relish the thought of digging 100 holes 6 inches deep. A neuron fired in my brain and I developed this....more

Easy Halloween Decorating Ideas

I confess. I started decorating for Halloween in mid-September. The bad news is that I can’t find some of my decorations. They are somewhere in our dark and somewhat cavernous storage unit.

Frozen DIY Cape

I had a bit of free time today and I figured what better way to use my free time than make a cape for the Elsa costume I made? Realistically, this should be easy but it took me a few tries because my cat kept messing with it. He's seriously the biggest asshole I've ever met....more

Elsa DIY Costume

If anybody watches a young girl, has a daughter, a granddaughter, a niece, has walked past a young girl, has heard the word girl, then chances are you've heard the song 'Let it Go' way too many times. Exactly 73,515,130,513,515 too many times. Don't get me wrong, I love the movie Frozen (once a year) and the meaning of the movie.
