glass diy projects

I recently took a trip to the local Goodwill and was once again stricken by the realization that Goodwill is a major supplier for us DIYers! I mean, aisle after aisle of merchandise screaming to be painted, glued, sequined and the like. I generally start in the furniture aisles and always look for the colored … Continue reading glass diy projects


diy cell phone arm band

I had SUCH a great time this weekend with some vibrant, faithful, crazy sisters in The Lord as we met up in Louisville, Kentucky. We laughed, cried, prayed and ate amazing food together. Notice what's missing from that list is that we exercised together. Missing = didn't happen. And did I mention we ate great … Continue reading diy cell phone arm band

Another great idea for mom's day is to … Continue reading diy cake plates

Actually, I pray while I'm strolling since I need the help of the Lord to not just throw things in my basket needlessly. :) I love that … Continue reading diy dollar store: rhinestone projects

diy shower favors

As a blogger, sometimes I feel like Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music and you're just coming along for the ride. "These are a few of my favorite things" plays in the background as I scribe about my favorite creations, gifts, events, food, etc. If I could dance while typing, you can believe I … Continue reading diy shower favors
