This is one of those ideas I found on Pinterest and now that I’m looking again I see it’s all over the place, but I think the pin I first saw for it was from Tidy Mom. Now that spring is here we’re all looking for ways to clean our spaces and to make them seem a little fresher, too. ... Read More »

Spring Clean Your Pinterest Page: Break Up Boards

general pinterst board

I think most of us, when we started building Pinterest boards, probably didn’t quite realize what we were getting into. So we made our categories pretty general, or vague, or we weren’t exactly sure what to do with things so we just put them somewhere. I, for instance, have a board called “general craftiness.” It holds all those little things ... Read More »

Happy spring, everyone in the Northern Hemisphere! This year more than most it feels like we’ve really survived something and that this day is a celebration. I am feeling in the spirit of spring cleaning, but with next week being spring break I don’t know how much I’ll get done until I have some time without a cleanliness-thwarting 4-year-old in ...

Avoid Black Friday and Find Awesome Gifts Online

gift ideas for foodie geeks

I used to be really good at gift giving. I hated to tell people what I wanted for various holidays because I thought if they really knew me they would know the kind of things I would like.

Do you ever see inspiring pictures or quotes but don’t have a system for keeping them? That’s what we’re working on today.

A Crafty Fall To-Do List

Today is the first day it’s actually felt like fall might be coming to Arkansas. As I write this it’s a lovely 82 degrees outside and the window right behind me is open. Love it. I’ve been a little reluctant for it to be fall, which is weird, because it’s my favorite. I guess it’s just a reminder of how ... Read More »

Five Minutes of CraftFail Fame

maxi dress craft fail

Guys, check me out! Back in April I tried to sew a “simple” maxi dress made out of fabric with a T-shirt top that I found on Pinterest. It seemed simple enough, but I just could not get the dang thing to make a ruffle like it was supposed to. I wrote about it back then, and the good people ... Read More »

Halloween Playdough

halloween playdough play

Regular readers of this blog will know that I’m just a wee bit obsessed with homemade playdough. I’ve made no fewer than six different versions and actually have my favorite recipe memorized. That one makes a lot, so I lately have been making a half recipe, which still seems to make a lot, but stored properly it lasts a really ... Read More »
