Our Outdoor Storage Shed Progress + The Bagster® Bag: $100 American Express Gift Card Giveaway

Hello friends. Hope everyone is doing fine and well.. and ready for the holidays. The past couple of weeks we have overloaded our work schedule just a bit  trying to get the outdoor storage shed project finished up. The weather has turned much colder and the days are significantly shorter - neither of which really helps with any outside projects this time of year. We did make some amazing progress though on the shed's to-do list and for the most part  it is all ready and prepared for the next couple of wintery months Continue reading

This past weekend the highly anticipated party arrived and the four little ones gathered for two fun-filled days of decorating 'gingerbread' houses, wafer cone trees and baking lots of cookies. I was graciously given the opportunity to partner with my local Dollar General to take Continue reading

How to Make a No Sew Kitchen Towel Apron: A Simple Baking & Crafting Apron for Kids

How to Make a No Sew Kitchen Towel Apron: A Simple Baking & Crafting Apron for Kids

The past couple of years I never thought about having aprons for the kiddies until we actually sat down to start decorating our gingerbread houses for the holiday. This year I was determined to have them ready to go as they were the first thing I actually wrote on the party list. This simple no sew apron design is made from a kitchen towel and some clothesline. They take less than ten minutes to put together and cost just $3 an apron to make. It's definitely one of those projects I can't believe I put off for so long. These are not Continue reading

Fringed Party Streamer Trees: Fun Holiday Decor

Fringed Party Streamer Trees: Fun Holiday Decor

I have another fun holiday decor project to share - It's quick and easy and the two supplies needed can be found for just $1 a piece. I've been a fan of crepe party streamers ever since I ran the first strip of them through my sewing machine two years ago to make this Ruffled Party Streamer Canvas. I love the fact you can find them in an array of colors and their inexpensive price tag is a plus as well. While the thought of a ruffled tree initially crossed my mind - I ended up going the easy route with this fun fringed tree - and I Continue reading

Embellished Paper Table Runner: Inexpensive Party Table Covering

Embellished Paper Table Runner: Inexpensive Party Table Covering

I always have problems finding table coverings for my dining room table. Whether I'm looking for something specific to fit a particular dinner or party theme or simply need something to protect the top - the fact that my table is 103 inches long automatically narrows down my choices. I usually end up making a version of this simple table runner from fabric and fusible tape - as I figure I can always repurpose the material in some way when it's no longer needed on the table. My other super easy go-to, especially if time is of the Continue reading
