How-To: Flocking Powder

How-To: Flocking Powder

Flocking powder is used to give an image a fuzzy, velvet-like appearance. It is sold in small jars and can be found at most craft stores in the rubber stamp section. I have never used flocking powder before. For some reason I thought you needed a heat gun to seal [...]

Kitchen Living Room Tour

Kitchen Living Room Tour

I would love to tell you that this room has been waiting for a ginormous project to be finished so I could share the photos and tutorial… Um, no. I have just been way too busy and way too lazy to show you our little kitchen living room. I got [...]

Wood Box + Leather Tutorial

Wood Box + Leather Tutorial

This post is sponsored by DecoArt. You guys, I just can’t get enough of Chalky Finish paint. After painting the tile on my fireplace, I just can’t get enough of this paint. I love that I can use it on literally any surface, and usually with just one coat of [...]

5 Minute Fairy Wand

5 Minute Fairy Wand

  We are absolutely obsessed with fairies at our house. When Evey and Lily play together, I am amazed at how many times they start playing one theme, and always end up back on fairies. It’s quite adorable! Since they constantly want to dress up like fairies too, I am [...]

Leather Mason Jar Holder

Leather Mason Jar Holder

Matthew did a scouting project a while back, and brought home some leather strips to make a bracelet with. I promptly stole the leather from him ’cause that’s just what kind of awesome mom I am. If you don’t know where to find leather for crafting, I have found two [...]

Birch Tree Coat Rack

Birch Tree Coat Rack

This is a little birch tree coat rack… round 2. If you follow me on Instagram you would know that round 1 didn’t go so well. Like, not well at all. (For a good laugh, feel free to check it out HERE.) With a few minor adjustments, this little coat rack is now ready [...]

Paint Storage Solution

Paint Storage Solution

I am trying so hard to stay organized right now, and it’s not just my craft room friends. I feel like everything is disorganized in my life right now. I have been back at work full time for over six months now, and I still don’t have a regular meal [...]

Learning to Needle Felt

Learning to Needle Felt

This post is sponsored by Whimseybox. I met with the folks over at Whimseybox at the ALT conference in January, and they asked me if I had heard of their monthly subscription craft boxes. Ummm… where have you been all of my life, Whimseybox?? It turns out that you can pay [...]

My Budding Artist – Time Lapse Video

My Budding Artist – Time Lapse Video

I have been fascinated with stop motion videos lately because they are such a fun way to document an event in your lives! The only problem is they get tedious really fast. Manually taking tons of photos and editing them down to a split second takes foreeeever. I know, I [...]

Shark Rocket {Tech in the Home 2014}

Shark Rocket {Tech in the Home 2014}

So, I have been in search for the perfect vacuum for my car. Something lightweight, with lots of attachments for those itty bitty hard-to-reach-goldfish-cracker-filled corners, ya know? Not only did I find the perfect car vacuum, I also found the perfect kid vacuum. Do your little guys vacuum their rooms? [...]

Fireplace Makeover

Fireplace Makeover

This post is sponsored by DecoArt. You have heard about chalk paint, right? It’s kind of a big deal these days. And why wouldn’t it be? Paint literally any surface without sanding and priming? Yup, it is definitely a big deal, which is why I was thrilled when DecoArt came out with [...]

Field Trip {Etsy Shop Feature}

Field Trip {Etsy Shop Feature}

I made a new online friend last month. Her name is Amy, and she is a delightful graphic designer based out of Vancouver, Canada. You know I am partial to Canadians as Mr. Wright boldly claims his Canadian heritage. And then there’s all of our munchkins that play ice hockey [...]

Orange Apple Cider Recipe

Orange Apple Cider Recipe

This is one of my favorite winter drinks, not only for warming up, but for beating those awful winter blues too. Today I came home  from work with an annoying migraine, and it’s amazing how much a hot delicious beverage makes me feel! Add a little lemon peel if you [...]

Simple Iron-on Laptop Bag

Simple Iron-on Laptop Bag

I discovered yesterday that my co-worker/bff Shanon who sits right next to me has the same laptop bag. Gah! How did I not notice I got the same bag as her?! Her bag is for a different size laptop, but besides that it is virtually the exact same thing. I guess [...]

Tech Trend: Cord Tacos!

Tech Trend: Cord Tacos!

You know how much I love going to the Consumer Electronic Show each year. That place is innovation heaven, but when it comes to unique design… well, it’s always a little harder to come by. You can imagine my reaction then, when I saw on display the tech trending cases [...]

Our Favorite Bedtime Stories

Our Favorite Bedtime Stories

I have been reading bedtime stories for over a decade (yikes!) and I can definitely say that we have found our favorites. I also know from experience, reading the same tale over and over again gets old reaaaal fast. So, if you are new to bedtime routines, an overly-experienced parent, [...]

I may be a little biased, but I think I have the cutest laptop in the whole wide world. My Macbook Air (above) is all decked out with the newest trend in technology: Keycals. They are these adorable key stickers that fit right on top of your Mac keyboard. Printed on [...]
