THE MAKING OF A MANDRAKE

the-making-of-a-mandrake-9You do know what a Mandrake is, right? You have read all the Harry Potter Books and seen all the movies, right? Sadly some of you out there have no idea what a Mandrake is. I am here to rectify that problem and show you how I made a Mandrake prop a few years ago. Continue reading

FARM HOUSE TRAY

FARM HOUSE TRAY

FARM HOUSE TRAYOne day I was scrolling through HomeTalk’s website looking for some inspiration. Well there it was. A simple unadorned rusty old baking tray on four wooden ball feet. Nothing fancy, not much to look at. But I could not take my eyes off it. I saved it knowing I would want to look at it a million more times. Continue reading

WHAT'S IN YOUR DRAWERS

WHAT’S IN YOUR DRAWERS?

WHAT'S IN YOUR DRAWERSI found this image on the internet and it has been stuck in my head for over a year now. I knew I had to use it in one of my posts but I seriously could not think of a darn thing to use it with. But I had to use it just to get the image out of my head. I thought of doing a post on “Thongs Gone Bad” but I seriously couldn’t do it. That post would have been even more disastrous than the photo of a baby in a thong diaper! Continue reading

JEWELRY ORGANIZING

Jewelry OrganizingFor many years now I just could not figure out how to organize all my jewelry. I have had many styles of jewelry boxes, jewelry trees, you name it, I have had them. Nothing I have used seemed to be able to keep everything organized. Necklaces are the most difficult as they tangle so easily. Continue reading

ROOM ORGANIZING

room-organitationThis is another post on how I deal with living in the worlds smallest house! Sometimes you have to get very creative.

Remember last week when I showed you the fruit basket toilet paper holder. Well this is another example of that.

It started in the bathroom. I hate being in that room. Just standing in there every morning doing my hair drove me crazy! Continue reading

UPCYCLED FRUIT BASKET

UPCYCLED FRUIT BASKET

UPCYCLED FRUIT BASKETI live in the smallest house in the world! Well maybe not the world. But it is ridiculous. The bathroom is so tiny that if you sneezed on the toilet you would smack your head on the sink and give yourself a major concussion! Continue reading

WITCHES BROOM FOR SENIORS

WITCHES BROOM FOR SENIORSThis has to be my all time favorite Halloween prop I have ever made. I actually wrote a quick tutorial on the making of it over on the Halloween Forum. But I wanted to show it off to you.

No it is not my Crow Hat. But that must be my second favorite!

This post is for my Witches Broom For Seniors! Continue reading

MONSTER HELMET COVER

MONSTER MOTORCYCLE HELMET COVER

MONSTER HELMET COVERRecently my son taught himself to ride a motorcycle. He did it the smart way and paid for a course before he invested in buying one. He decided he liked it and bought himself a small Honda Grom. The bike is so stinking cute I am hoping to buy it from him when he decides to upgrade to a bigger one. But he is having so much fun on it I am starting to wonder if he will ever upgrade! Continue reading

ROAD TRIP TO THE ROCKIES

ROADTRIP TO THE ROCKIES

ROADTRIP TO THE ROCKIESI think the days of grabbing the kids, the dog and a tent to go camping for a weekend are sadly gone. My son and I decided to book our vacation at the same time this year on the chance we just might do something or go someplace we have never been before. After some nudging on my part I talked him into a road trip up to the Canadian Rockies for a few days. Continue reading
