I’ve had a long absence from the blog, but I have been being crafty! Below is a photo collage of a few things that Pinterest inspired me to do, DIY Febreze, Pretty wreath, and with mod podge and fabric I gave my straw holder new life!!
What has been going on during my absence: Well, my husband is currently deployed, we are at the end (Thank God!!!). I’ve spent lots of time with my boys. My 3 year old has learned so much in the time my husband has been gone, it will be amazing for him to see how much he now knows. My almost 2 year old is a mess, he has also changed and grown so much. I can’t wait for the homecoming to see their little faces light up. I’ve tried new a couple of new recipes, we’ve recently done a little gardening, TONS of spring cleaning here lately. Really just lots of random boring stuff!
I have also taken lots of time taking my photography to the next level and learning all that I possibly can. I still have lots left to learn, but I believe I am good enough now to share my photos 🙂 so if you would like to follow me on this adventure you can follow here. I am very excited about this and to see where it takes me and how I can grow!
I will be back soon (I know I keep saying that, but really this time I will) with some new recipes and crafty stuff 🙂 Stay tuned!
Hi!! It has been a while, but I’m back!! I came across these on pinterest, I can’t for the life of me remember where the blog is that I got this from, but these are just TOO amazing not to share with you all! So this is not my recipe, I don’t take credit for it!
This is usually a hit at family get togethers or holiday parties. It’s one of my favorite holiday treats and the best part is…it’s SUPER easy to make! Continue reading
I made place mats similar to these last year, but after a stain they didn’t survive the wash. This year I hand sewed them. Lesson learned from using heat n bond last year. Continue reading
After having numerous tree skirts I didn’t ever LOVE enough to use year after year, last year I decided to just semi-make my own. I had made place mats last year out of material I absolutely fell in love with, but when I washed them, they fell apart. I was upset, but decided I could re-use them on this project. Day after Christmas last year, I was up and out EARLY, on the search for a plain red tree skirt. Yeah, I’m lazy and bought a red one for half off instead of having to make it. I found one I liked and came home to tear apart my place mats. I proceeded to cut out my dots, once that was done I arranged them on the tree skirt until I liked what I was looking at then pinned them down in place. I then, hand sewed with embroidery thread, each polka dot. I am in LOVE with the way it turned out and will be using this for many years to come. This wasn’t a project I did all in one day. It is one that I have worked on and off for 11 months. It’s very simple to do, although time consuming.
Here is the finished product and a close-up 🙂 The material I used can be purchased here. They have LOTS of amazing choices! Continue reading
My little family has had some changes this past month and needless to say, I wasn’t fully prepared for the way my children, more specifically my oldest, P. We are a military family, I haven’t mentioned in much on here, I think only in my first post. My husband is active duty and has been in 9 years, we’ve been together 5 and married for 4 of those years on December 15. Continue reading
This is a favorite of a lot of Southern families during Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. This recipe has been passed down through my family for years probably, I however, did change it up a little bit. I have 2 toddlers, and this takes about an hour or a little more to prepare everything, because of that I changed it a little bit. So, this is how I do it in my home, not how my grandmothers and my own mom make it. To prepare you in advance, you will end up with a butt load of dishes to do as you prepare this. I suggest washing as you go, if not….it’s a nightmare. Continue reading
