Free Quilting E-Guide

What size is a twin-size quilt?  What is a fat eighth?  What is a layer cake? What does WOF stand for? If these are questions you've had to ask or google, don't be embarrassed because I have had to as well. Quilting is full of jargon that can be confusing if you're new to quilting and to ask someone what it is would reveal just how little you know, right?  I have had so many times of looking things up when planning a new quilt or something … [Read more...]

Gold Dipped Flower Pots

Well another school year has come and gone.  It's crazy to think that in one week I will no longer have a kindergartener!  The end of school always sneaks up on me and before I know it, I need to come up with a teacher gift!  I love giving plants to people, and succulents are the easiest plants to take care of.  I bought some Jade plants and some simple terra cotta pots and jazzed them up with Decoart's Patio Paint! Gold is so big right … [Read more...]

Llama Llama Holiday Drama!

I need to have a moment of honesty here...I'm in a funk.  Who is with me?!  I hope you are not, but I also hope you are because then I wouldn't feel like such a schlub.  I've been struggling for awhile now, not really feeling like myself.  I feel like I'm living this Reader's Digest version of my life because I don't have the energy to do anything else.  I'm not sure why...whether or not it's due to the colder weather or what...but I'm just kind … [Read more...]

Frozen to Gourmet in 10 Minutes

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Michelina's for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Some of you might have figured out by now that I am a big fan of QUICK.  I created a puff quilt pattern for the sewing machine because there was NO WAY I was going to hand stitch that quilt together.  90% of the recipes I make for dinner are something that can be whipped up in about 20 minutes or less. So frozen food?  Hmm....usually … [Read more...]

Plywood St Patrick’s Day Wreath

I had this idea which involved a jigsaw: a Plywood St Patrick's Day Wreath. Awesome right? I have to say, this is possibly one of my most favorite projects to date.  I'm just so gosh darn impressed with myself!  I tried something new, and it turned out great.  And I'm sad that I have to take this down in a few weeks because I feel like the ratio of loving this=time it can be up for all to see and appreciate is not equal.  (But don't worry, … [Read more...]

Spring Fashion–25 Looks to Try

It may be technically February, but I think we're all ready for some Spring Fashion!!  The weather has been super weird here so one day I could wear flip flops and then a sweater and boots the next.  But I'm itching with Spring Fever, like so many of you, and I wanted to share some of my favorite Spring Fashions. Florals:  I think when people think of floral patterns they instantly think 'Old Lady' or Grandma.  But florals are some of my … [Read more...]

Holiday Linky Parties Announcement!

Linky Parties:  Here's the story with me.  Back like two years ago, I started a linky party.  I was super impatient that I didn't have like 500 links in the first party so I gave up after a few weeks.  I really regret that decision for several reasons and I have thought seriously about doing a linky party since.  But there are SO many linky parties, it's hard to remember them all!  So here is my compromise.  I'm going to have linky parties for … [Read more...]
