Framed Jeep Grilles | mini replica custom wall art

Framed Jeep Grilles - mini replica custom wall art | Sixteen years ago we made a phone call and purchased our first Jeep.  A well loved CJ-7 we found sitting on the side of the road. Little did we know that one purchase would be the beginning of a whole new lifestyle. They say when you own a Jeep, every other Jeep owner in the world is your friend. That special camaraderie and 'go anywhere, do anything' community has given us years of outdoor adventures, wonderful memories and an incredible group of friends, we now think of as family. I share Continue reading

Hot Dog Vendor Costume - homemade halloween #michaelsmakers | I am the biggest fan of themed costumes. I simply adore them wether they are family themed, group themed, or just a theme based on two ... even if the other part of the duo is your pet. Take the theme and add a little homemade pizzaz to the set up and I can't hardly stand it! As a member of the Michaels Makers Blogging Team our challenge for October was creatively centered on putting together a DIY Halloween Costume. As I juggled a couple of different ideas, I immediately knew Continue reading

Wine Tasting Party - fall entertaining | This post brought to you by Sonoma-Cutrer Vineyards. All opinions are 100% mine. Autumn is here and we have been savoring every last minute of this beautiful weather.  It's my favorite time of year to entertain especially outdoors.

A casual wine tasting party is a fun way to gather friends, experiment with new varietals, and discover a new favorite bottle. Nothing contributes more Continue reading

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shake

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shake

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shake | #trumoohalloween Halloween is all about the treats and this chocolate covered strawberry milkshake certainly doesn't fall short in that category. This yummy concoction combines a thick rich chocolate milkshake layered on top of a sweet frosty strawberry smoothie that takes just minutes to mix up. Without being overly gory the shake was actually inspired by the ghoulish Halloween vampire, Dracula. I'll spare all of the spooky details and gruesome connotations because this is a pretty tasty treat - Continue reading

Craft Pumpkin Candy Holders - Faux Pumpkin Craft #trickyourpumpkin #michaelsmakers | We recently made a trip to the Michaels 'pumpkin patch' and couldn't resist bringing a few craft pumpkins home with us. Sure we love our traditional annual carving but being able to save that pumpkin design you create is pretty wonderful too! This year I decided to add some fun and whimsy to our faux pumpkins and make them into candy holders that can be used year after after. These craft pumpkin candy holders do not require any special crafting Continue reading

Homemade Fire Starters | backyard fire pit safety reminders

Homemade Fire Starters - backyard fire pit safety reminders | During the fall we get to experience our outdoor living area with a whole new set of eyes. It's that time of year when the yard work slows down and the majority of any outdoor projects plans have finally come to a close. The time of year we like to take advantage of the early sunsets and cool crisp evening air. Honestly, the time of year we are usually ready to finally sit down and enjoy and our wonderful surroundings. While we have begun to prepare the rest of the outdoors for the Continue reading
