Photos Transferred to Wood

I’ve seen this project posted on Pinterest and this week decided that I wanted to try it. I have friends who were married a year and a half ago, and I wasn’t able to buy them a proper wedding gift at the time, so I thought this would be an awesome (although belated) gift. Photos…

Window Herb Garden

This week I was commissioned to create a window herb garden with my coffee can art. YAY! Fun! So, I spent the early part of the week shopping and fetching supplies, then today I got busy on the project. I picked out 6 cans and painted them with that rusty coffee can look, and thought it best…

Wine Me Up

Today was a fun day. I was commissioned to create this wine-themed barrel stave, and decided to add some bling to it, just to change things up a bit. It came out so cute, I had to add a few tin can planters which you will see at the end of this post. I have…

Painted Rusty Cans

It’s been WEEKS since I have had time to create…a STRESSFUL couple of weeks, so today’s fun project was much needed. Yes, yes…I’m goofing around with cans again, this time I’m trying to make them look rusty. Of course this was Pinterest inspired…I wasn’t able to find the exact paints suggested by the blogger who…

Coffee Station Update

Two weeks ago my bestie called me up and asked if I would like her (only 1 year old) Ninja Coffee maker. Her son had gifted her a brand new one at Christmas, so she thought maybe I would like to have her “old” one! SQUEEEEEEE!!! New coffee pot! This was a very good excuse…

Barrel Staves & Wine Bottle Centerpieces

This is yet ANOTHER Pinterest inspired project. It so dangerous for me to hang out on that site, I swear to God. But, the good news is, none of these projects are terribly expensive and I am finding ways to re-purpose items I have laying around the house. I often acquire fun pieces from friends…

Barrel Rings

WELL, it’s been a year and I’m excited to announce that the blank wall in my breakfast nook is no longer blank. I’ve toyed with many ideas over the past few months, but inspiration didn’t come to me until a few weeks ago when my boss’s wife had some old barrel rings and staves hanging…

Coffee Can Christmas Project

Hi Ho Blogeteers, I’m happy to announce that I have found affordable therapy. All I have to do is hoard my coffee cans, make them pretty, and post them on the internet. LOL I found some cute ideas for the Holidays on Pinterest, and as usual I put my own personal spin on them. I…

Shine a Little Light

I found another project. My creative muse is back in business. My mind is dreaming again. Repurposing is my new purpose for awhile. I’ve been saving coffee cans, stashing them in my son’s closet much to his chagrin. It occurred to me the other day that I could use these to make some cute lanterns…

Break in the Weather

It’s late September, and luckily the weather seems to have broken. Yesterday we had a little rain…not much, but enough to cool things off and dampen the ground. It has not rained here since March, and its just been too hot to go out and work on the yard (or do ANYTHING outdoors). Dried up…

Basket for a Friend

I’ve always enjoyed unique gift baskets, and been envious of anyone who can craft one with hand-picked items. My creative ideas aren’t always on point, but today I think I put together a pretty awesome gift basket for my friend who is having a birthday on Saturday. The sad truth is, I had very little…

Tethered

Before I start in on this post, I have to say…my birthday was awesome. I had a great time. My friend gifted me a red superhero cape and mask…I wore it all weekend. My friends so get me…I am supergirl. For about 2 years now, I’ve been trying to shake depression and general malaise. Inspiration…
