Baby Scrapbook

Back in spring, I found out that my best friend of 21 years is pregnant. After the shock wore off, I realized I had to do something huge for her. Wellโ€ฆ not huge; meaningful. I thought about making a baby blanket like I have for a lot of my friendsโ€™ kids. But knowing her family,Continue reading “Baby Scrapbook”

Annual Holiday Posters

This week, Jarod and I have spent a lot of time in the car working with a client over an hour away. We were chatting about what to do one night when we got home and I gave a few options: 1) hop in the craft room and create something, 2) game night, 3) anContinue reading “Annual Holiday Posters”

No More Cotton Balls!

Today I have yet another craft I found on TikTokโ€ฆ I swear I do spend time off of that app. Anywho, this craft caught my eye because it reuses old materials and can save me money on cotton balls and makeup remover wipes. Every night, I use at least one cotton ball to take offContinue reading “No More Cotton Balls!”

Homemade Syrup

If you follow my blog, youโ€™ll see that I took a little break. Work got really busy (thank goodness) and I kept forgetting to take time and craftโ€ฆ or take pictures and write about it. Luckily, I decided months ago that I was going to take my whole birthday weekend off since it aligns withContinue reading “Homemade Syrup”

If you read my last post, youโ€™ll know Iโ€™m focusing a lot more on being intentional in my actions. And if you havenโ€™t, you should go check that out. Anywho, while Iโ€™m on this journey Iโ€™m trying anything I can to focus my energy where I want it to go. The other night, I wasContinue reading “Hanging Crystals”

Birthday Celebrations!

When my boyfriend and I first started talking, he told me he has never had anyone make a big deal about his birthday. He is used to planning everything himself and hasnโ€™t ever been pamperedโ€ฆ so my goal this year is to change that. I picked 7 gifts that I knew he would like (5Continue reading “Birthday Celebrations!”

Homemade Butter

On July 4th I had a few friends over for a fire that turned into a game night. Iโ€™m not sure how we got on the topic, but I said something about making butter and realized that not everyone has made butter before! Iโ€™m not sure if I did it first in scouts or atContinue reading “Homemade Butter”

DIY Veggie Broth

Today I have a quick kitchen craft for you. I am all for saving money and using things I already have so when I found this DIY a few years ago, I made it all the time. To make chicken or beef broth, you boil raw bones and release a bunch of flavor in yourContinue reading “DIY Veggie Broth”

Non-billable Hours

I was thinking long and hard about what I would post this week. I knew it would be really full with clients. On a normal week, I try to see clients 3-4 days out of the week. It doesnโ€™t seem like a lot, especially based off of a normal work day โ€“ but it is.Continue reading “Non-billable Hours”

Tub Tray

If you read Tuesdayโ€™s post, youโ€™ll know that most of my past two weekends were taken up with tearing apart and putting down a new deck. I was expecting to take a break from crafting and catch up on sleep and reading around work this weekโ€ฆ but Jarod had different ideas. On Monday, we bothContinue reading “Tub Tray”
