Faux Wood Pallet Art

Faux Wood Pallet Art

Faux Wood Pallet Art | Pallet art without wood? That is exactly what I was thinking when we received the Make It: Fun® design theme for October. I very much enjoy the natural element of using real wood for projects and it never has crossed my mind to work with anything else. Our pile of scrap wood and the power tools we have accumulated over the years makes using real wood an easy and obvious choice. Initially this theme was a bit of a challenge for me,  though the more I thought about it, the more it made sense to have an alternative. With Continue reading

Fall Decor, Crafts, & Recipes | Happy Friday! I'm so ready for the weekend, are you?

Thanksgiving Table Setting | setting a fall tablescape with Better Homes and Gardens  Thanksgiving dinner is one family tradition I look forward to the most this time of year. Nothing is more precious than gathering friends and family around the table to celebrate, reminiscence, and give thanks. Since we won't be entertaining before the big day I finished up our Thanksgiving table setting last week. There are a few things I'll have to touch up before the feast arrives, like the flowers and bread placecards, but for the most part I'm just Continue reading

Holiday Decor Shopping Trip Finds | Michaels Dream Tree Challenge #JustAddMichaels Even though it may be a bit too early for some - I get a little giddy this time of year when I start to see  the arrival of holiday decor and tree trimming displays. (Christmas is just 67 days away!) I do believe it is the most wonderful time of year.  To kick off the season we always have at least one tree up and just lit by Thanksgiving Day, for our dinner guest to enjoy. This year though, we are starting even a little earlier than that, as we already have Continue reading

Printable Thanksgiving Menu Template | making printables with the silhouette machine

Printable Thanksgiving Menu | This week I'm putting together our Thanksgiving table. For any entertaining that involves serving food I always like to print out a menu for our guests. It not only is a quick and simple way to display what will be served for the guests, but mainly keeps me on track in the kitchen as I get the dishes together. This years printable was designed using the software that came with my Silhouette machine. I find the Studio Designer software to be incredibly easy to use - especially when resizing, aligning and Continue reading
