Look Who Had Babies.

This year I decided to finally spruce up our lil' yard. After fixing neglected areas and making a much longed-for window box, it's time to tackle one last project: A fan trellis that will both separate our front from the neighbor's and add interest to the fence -- all while holding our trumpet vine in place!
This is how we made a solar powered waterfall for our new fairy herb garden. It cost us less than $10 to make, and is such a fun feature to have.
I'm always, yes always on the prowl for picture frames and I've never been stumped yet on what to recreate with them! They are so much fun to work with and the ideas are endless but this might be a "new" idea?? I was inspired by the obsession everyone has to have greenery in their homes nowadays either real or faux. The cactus craze has been one of them leading me to creating a faux succulent garden, Hens and Chicks in a picture frame!!
There is nothing more incredible than the birth of a child. It changes everything about your life and you become someone you said you would never be (you know it's true). You are more concerned about germs, leaving your little one behind is the hardest thing in the world, and keeping your baby alive and healthy is your number one priority. Fast forward a few years or months (if you're me) and you now have not one bundle of joy, but two. This time the experience, the emotions, and the way you handle life are entirely different. You aren't worried about germs; you're too busy trying to remember if you brought spare clothes in case you get pooped on again. As a second-time mom, you realize just how out of control your life really is. Now you're ready to chillax and take things as they come, not that you have a choice; it's just the only way to stay sane. If you have a friend or family member, that has already had one child and, of course, a huge baby shower you may want to consider baby sprinkles! Baby sprinkles celebrate moms who are having their second (third, or more!) little blessing-and are a little wiser, a little savvier, and a bit more comfortable being laid back about it! With that in mind, I would like to share a few Easy DIY Baby Shower Decor ideas that will please your second time around (or more) mommy friend, and leave your first time mom squirting hand sanitizer on everything at the party! Today we are upcycling some stuff we had lying around the house, but you can also easily find these items at a thrift store. Even though the guest of honor is pretty chill now we still highly recommend washing everything you use multiple times. Just because we roll with the punches doesn't mean we want anyone to end up in the ER.
One thing I have learned over the years is that the best baby shower gifts are the ones that are both memorable and incredibly useful. That's why I opted to go the extra mile and create a baby shower diaper cake that is impossible to beat. In less than an hour, I created a baby shower gift that not only looks like a professionally-designed hamper, but had enough useful baby products in it to keep my friend happy for a while. If you want to truly show your friend how much you care at her baby shower, simply follow these steps to create a baby shower diaper cake that looks stunning and always delivers when it comes to practicality.
This post is about a baby shower centerpiece I designed for my daughter-in-law's baby shower. It is easy to do, and will make a really unique centerpiece for any shower whether it is for a boy or girl. I will include a link to the FREE downloadable pattern.
This is such a sweet way to re purpose the gift paper and ribbon as a sweet memento from your baby shower. I made this for my granddaughter.
We don't know what it is about tree stumps that we love so much - maybe the natural texture, the joy of reusing materials, or the fact that they're completely free. Whatever the reason, we LOVE them, and we know you do too, which is why we collected some inspiring and crazy cool pictures of tree stump upcycles that you'd better not miss! 1. Tree Stump Planter
After getting locked out of my house once, I vowed NEVER AGAIN! So I combined two trendy DIYs- stepping stones and mosaics- and added a secret key hider underneath. Click HERE for the full tutorial...including my secret trick for a fool proof stepping stone!
After seeing so many posts on diy garden globes, I just had to try it. I started searching for old bowling balls but all I found were priced too high. Then little by little, it all came together and and I now have six garden globes that I just love. Hope you do too.
Making fun things for the garden is one of my favourite things to so so I decided to create some repurposed garden flowers using thrifted strainer steamers.
Do you have a few pieces of old wood laying around? Are you looking for something to do with them? Come see how to build a birdhouse with scrap wood! With a little bit of imagination, you can turn that old pile of wood into something that your bird friends will love!
I love to transform unwanted and damaged items of a vintage nature by breathing new life into them and when I saw this piece of slate on a string in local charity shop thought it would be a great item to be decorated and be durable for the garden .
In my humble opinion, no fairy creation would be complete without the addition of a few teeny, tiny, magical mushrooms.
I've been on the lookout for a couple of price-efficient (or better, free!) Adirondack chairs forever! Because my little garden shed is so rustic, my more modern newer outdoor chairs sitting next to it never felt... right.So when 2 rickety Adirondack chair freebies that had seen much better days landed in my lap, I crossed my fingers they could be saved...Grabbing some tools along with the pressure washer, you'd be hard-pressed to believe the before!However, one more thing needed to transpire to make them totally marry the rustic shed... Here's what I did!
In my quest to make my garden pretty this year, I have a bunch of fun projects I want to complete. I am taking you all with me on my garden decorating journey!

Since I have Lyme Disease and multiple tick-borne illnesses I want to protect myself and my family from coming into contact with ticks as much as I possibly can. Since we spend so much time in our backyard it is one of the most important places to try to eliminate the tick threat. I have a super easy (and cheap) DIY to help protect your yard against ticks.
There is something timeless about a scroll. It doesn't matter if it's displaying words, a phrase, or a print, I just love them. Canvas scrolls can be expensive, depending what you're looking for. I found an easy and inexpensive way to create your own!Using a roll of brown wrapping paper, a print of your choice, and some crafting tools, you can create your own customized paper scroll for your home.

I grabbed some extra wood that I had and everything I could think of that was red, white and blue. Let's see if we can make some cute things from all of this mess.
I’ve always loved wind chimes and I’ve made quite a few over the years, but this time I wanted to do something completely different from all the wind chimes that I’ve created before.I was packing up a large donation box for the thrift store recently and I found a small lampshade that I had put in the box a while back.And I had a light bulb moment.
If you follow my blog you will know that I try and create all my projects from recycled materials. In our house, we all love Pepsi Max, which leaves us with a fair few aluminium cans. Instead of sending them to the recycling centre, I wanted to try and create an aluminium can wall hanging with them. Because aluminium cans are not very big, I wanted to create a wall hanging that was made up of smaller panels that could be arranged in different designs on the wall. So your wall hanging can be changed around when you get bored with the design.
