Patriotic Kids Art

We recently got to use products from DohVinci. This product combines playdoh with 3d printing. When it dries, you have a masterpiece. There are so many different bases you can use to create on such as wood, plastic, ceramic but we decided to use a canvas. It worked perfectly! The stylist resembles a glue […]

All you need is […]

Summer Lemon Wood Craft

When I create something, I like to think outside the box or in this case, outside the fruit. Does a lemon have to be all yellow?

I decided that a lemon doesn’t have to be all yellow. I can make it what I want and to match my yellow and pink porch decor.
I found everything […]

Denim Dreams{DIY Dream Catcher}

Follow your heart,
Capture your dreams,
Live life to the fullest!

I don’t like to throw out items that I think I can upcycle. So, when a pair of jeans went out of commission, I knew I could use the denim. I picked up a round wire planter for just a few bucks at Home Depot. Then, […]

I admit it I like to coupon {verb} and save money!

Right now, Michael’s has the cutest unfinished wood signs. Get there today-like yesterday even! With a spring mantle on my mind, I started creating. I used yarn to create the word “spring.” Then I added a birdhouse that I had laying around […]
