That special day!


It’s been a while – it’s been a little hectic my way.

For Valentine’s day – I did something a little special for my hubby.  I had been planning on it for a while, but waiting for the right time.  I thought about Christmas…but what better day than that LOVE day right?

I took a deck of playing cards – printed out reasons or things why I loved him.  I laminated the sayings (because I’m the laminating queen).  I printed out our picture a serious on the front and a goofy fun one on the back.  And wrote ” a few things I love bout you”.

I was so excited about this – I put a lot of thought into it, added some funnies in there as well because he and I like to joke and kid too.

This was a FUN special project.  He really really liked it.

Christmas Vase Fillers


I’ve actually done this the past few years, but stumbled upon it on Pinterest….along with some other really cute ideas.  I have used pinecombs, and Christmas ornaments…both very pretty.  Here is a Center piece that I made for my dining room table….which I have now cleared off for my village that covers the entire table.  I have now moved this vase to my round coffee table.

Such cute ideas…..

Bottle Decor


There is just so many crafty things on Pinterest, I cannot help myself!!  A week or so ago, a work friend said they had about 30 wine bottles stored up and wondered what to do with them.  I told her I’d take them – I would make something out of them!!  So she brought me 2 boxes, and I got to work. 

This weekend we worked on outside lights (we, I mean my hubby…though I did help with that this year) and I spray painted wine bottles…….and hot glued wine bottles.

First up….buttons

Next…more hot glue – and spray paint

SO much fun..and so many possibilities!!

Styrofoam balls + Thumbtacks = ornamants


I saw this cutesy idea a week or so ago on Pinterest – the styrofoam balls and the thumbtacks, sitting in a cute little bowl.  I thought to myself “ahhhh what a cute easy idea”!!  I have a bowl, wooden at my house that has the wooden ones in it – love that look!

I thought this was a great idea – plus you could spray paint this any color you want – styrofoam balls … so many crafty things you could do!!

So when I started out I was like ahhhh this is very time consuming..hmmm I’m not sure I want to do a bunch of these….it’s easier to buy them.  But half way through, I was thinking this isn’t too bad really – I could get obsessed.  I suppose it isn’t any worse than sewing, needle-point, or something like that.

These could actually be fun – I’m not sure I would spray paint them…but you could – it wouldn’t be hard.  You could also buy different color tacks just as easy.  You could make patterns – so many possibilities.


Over all, not a bad project – not sure if I’ll make any more.  I happened to have some styrofoam balls – so I’m not sure the cost.  I bought the tacks from a Dollar General store, $1 a pack – I used about 3 1/2 packs.  This is something you could do to relieve stress 🙂  I actually liked using all white.
