Homeade Liquid Laundry Detergent

      Last November, I made laundry detergent for the first time. I was very proud of myself. Laundry detergent is the one thing I loath purchasing. I hate that it adds $13 onto my grocery bill....more

Valentines Wreath

Valentines day is 1 week away!  I’m not much into the holiday but there is something nice about making a new decoration for the living room that can get you in the mood for almost any holiday.  :-)  As a bonus Pinterest craft this week I adapted a kissing ball tutorial I found on Pinterest to make a heart shaped wreath....more

Magnetic letters...'t you just love when you get a present that you absolutely love but didn't even know you wanted it?!!Brad gave me a portrait lens for our DSLR for my birthday.  At least that's what he told me it was called.  Okay, really he told me that it was a lens that would help me to take pictures of  things up close, in low light, without the flash, a portrait lens.  Cool, I thought......more

Red Hot Pillow Talk

It is just over a week until Valentine's Day and there is a definite lack of decorating around my house.  Normally, there isn't much for this holiday anyway, but I was feeling the need for SOMETHING.  Up until now, the only "decoration" was the tablecloth shown here (under all the sewy stuff).  It was made from some leftover fabric that was sitting around doing nothing.  ...more

Procrastinating on Monsters

I am sure everyone does this. You have an amazing project that you love. You suddenly find yourself busy with other amazing, but not as amazing as the other project, projects. Your amazing project (that you love) gets pushed to the back burner, and suddenly is the hardest thing in the world to finish. You become sad that your amazing project is not done. Suddenly nothing can be finished before your amazing (yet sad and neglected that you love) project. I have hit that point....more

Valentine's Day Gift for Dad

Awhile back when I first found out about Pinterest I found a really cute photo idea for my husband (DAD photo). He was deployed this past Christmas so I decided to do it for Valentine's Day from the girls. It is really easy to do at home and you don't even have to have a nice camera to do it with. I used my Canon Rebel XS EOS camera....more

Pinterest: Mindless Inspiration for the Overwhelmed

My biggest complaint in the last two years? I don’t have enough time in the day. Like most moms, from the moment my eyes open (usually with a toddler staring back at me six inches from my nose) to the moment they close again for the night, I am in constant motion....more

Making Food-Safe Silicone Molds

I did a series on making silicone molds for cake decorating on my cake blog over the past couple of weeks. Silicone molds are big business in the cake world. Food-safe silicone molds can be found in pretty much every shape, but they never come in the exact size that you need. They can also be pretty expensive, so making your own is a good option. You can also use silicone molds for soap, polymer clay, and other ceramics. Making your own molds is fairly easy, but people seem to be scared to do it. ...more
