Paint Swirl Ornaments

My daughter and I made paint swirl Christmas ornaments yesterday while the snow was slowly melting. We had a lot of fun making these. They are so simple to make, but do take a while because of the drying time. I had bought a set of clear ornaments for a great deal while Black Friday… Continue reading Paint Swirl Ornaments

Mason Jar Lid Christmas Ornaments

Happy Wednesday! We are under a winter storm warning until tomorrow here in Virginia. I can hardly believe it! Usually we don't start getting these warnings until January! We are supposed to be getting a little bit of snow but mostly ice. Yuck. I hope it melts fast! I don't have time for ice. I… Continue reading Mason Jar Lid Christmas Ornaments

Weekend Happenings

Happy Monday! It was so cold this weekend! Saturday was in the 40's but with the wind blowing it felt like it was mid 30's. Saturday night the temperatures dropped down into the lower 20's. That is crazy for us here this time of year! It's normally in the 50's or lower 60's. I found… Continue reading Weekend Happenings

A few weekends ago my mom and I went to a rummage sale and I picked up this picture. I only wanted the wooden frame so I could make a "window" out of it.

Crochet Chemo Caps

I've been busy finally setting up an Etsy shop! I've been making chemo caps for a while now and thought I would like to try to sell some. I also donate them, too.

Fall Hurricane Candle Holder DIY

It's been cloudy on and off today with a slight breeze and even a rain shower earlier. Those dark clouds from Hurricane Florence are rolling in. The public schools are closed today and the high school football game scheduled for tonight was pushed up to last night. The local weather is still saying that Florence… Continue reading Fall Hurricane Candle Holder DIY
