Whether you love to garden, or you can't be bothered and just want to put something into the ground and forget about it, Candytuft is a plant you should pick up this season at your local nursery or home improvement store. I'm not a garden "expert" but I am an avid gardener (still learning as I grow - pun intended!) and love sharing what has worked for me.
You can make these in 15 minutes! Yes, it's true! (Click on blog link below for details.) I've wanted to make something with the small pinecones I find in our backyard. Inspiration struck when I saw a photo online at Better Homes & Gardens...
These candle lanterns are made from dollar store jar lanterns plus star labels. They are easy to make, both in time and money! Great for hostess or teacher gifts! Here's how I made them...
I made my Cotton Ball and Jingle Bell Christmas Tree based on a wonderful craft from my favorite new book "Creatively Christmas: Inspired Yuletide Décor" by Jennifer Rizzo!
Our cedar wood raised beds were very pretty, but didn't get enough full sun for our vegetables to thrive. We decided to move the beds for better sunlight, but found the cedar wood had been feasted on by termites. So...this time my husband built a large raised bed using cobbled paver stones. Our vegetables love it! I do too...even though it was probably the area where my dream pool would have gone! Hah! (You can read all the details on how this was built by clicking on my blog post link below.)
This Halloween project was inspired by a set of hauntingly gorgeous vintage labels created by Karen - The Graphics Fairy. I had fun crafting something vintage-looking and a bit gothic using recycled jelly jars! Click on the link to my blog post to get the complete steps on how I made these and for an easy link to Karen's labels too!
Here's a fun holiday craft that is easy to make - as long as you don't eat all the M&Ms while you're putting it together! We're displaying ours in our kitchen! See the tutorial on my blog!
Using Chalky Finish paint and wax, along with a wee bit of sanding, I created this distressed mason jar vase! I also made an identical one, with lots more sanding for light to shine out, to get a matching luminary!
