One of the wonderful things about Christmas is the opportunity to make handmade gifts for friends and family.  Each year, I make items that I have been inspired by, sometimes from the stores or sometimes online. In the past, I had seen many wreaths made from glass ornaments, but this year, I decided to create…

If you are like me, you are no stranger to cold hands in the wintertime.  Despite wearing my mittens and gloves my hands just have the most difficult time warming up.  I’ve also have been known from time to time to dash out to the chicken coop forgetting my gloves.  One way that I try…

I have always loved creating handmade during the holiday time. I have to say, homemade gifts are sometimes the best gifts. Oranges have always been part of my Christmases since I was a little girl. Some of my earliest memories are making pomanders balls with my sisters at the kitchen table. Did you know that…

Summer nights make me think of crickets, warm breezes, sleeping with the window open, and of course catching fireflies. One of the things I look forward to come summertime, is spending time with my kids. They’re growing up so quickly. I share lots of memories from when I was a little girls with them and…

I’m such a lover of frozen fruit. Have you ever tried freezing grapes, melon and bananas?  They are a fave around here and this past week, I wanted to create a delicious, healthier, summer treat for the kids. Instead of calorie-filled ice cream, these frozen chocolate banana pops were a breeze to make. When I…

I was on assignment for DIY Network this past week. We’re celebrating Pet Love and what better way to show you care than to create a gorgeous pet silhouette of my editor’s pug. I’ve worked the past 6 years with the same editor at Scripps Network. She is amazing and super fun and has the…

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is growing bulbs indoors. I do this for both Christmas and Easter. There is something about growing flowers indoors during the chilly winter months.  During Christmastime, I especially love growing paperwhites. This is a fail-proof project for even those with a brown thumb. If you have…

I love celebrating Halloween with my kids. Both of my kids do not enjoy being spooked with scary masks or things that go bump in the night, but rather they enjoy the more whimsical side of Halloween. This year, we were especially lucky that my editor at DIY Network had kid-friendly Halloween crafts in mind…
