Trash to Treasure

This project has a bit of a backstory and may encourage pack rat tendencies (sorry in advance!). Okay, so in December, I was working in a clientโ€™s closet and realized that her clothes were so heavy they were pulling her shelves off of the wall. Luckily, Jarod is a handyman with design experience so IContinue reading “Trash to Treasure”

Upcycled Tin Cans

Today I have a pretty quick craft for you! I was scouring Etsy and Pinterest looking at things I could make for fun with things around the house. I came across an Etsy page of a woman who makes tons of designs using tin cans. Some were painted one color and had some twine, andContinue reading “Upcycled Tin Cans”

Upcycled Desk

Todayโ€™s project was supposed to be a simple flip. In mid-January, Jarod found this childโ€™s desk on Facebook Marketplace and we thought about how to fix it up. The first idea was just to clean off the stickers and repaint it, but the desk is so small we werenโ€™t sure how it would sell. WeContinue reading “Upcycled Desk”

Piano Key Holders

HELLO!! I know itโ€™s been WAY too long since Iโ€™ve written a blog post. I realized I took on too many projects and got burnt out. I wasnโ€™t doing them for fun, I was doing them just to add another task to my list. (Recently I found out that this might mean Iโ€™m a workaholic-Continue reading “Piano Key Holders”

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”

Hanging Crystals

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”

Monday Motivational Meeting

When I was in college, I was lucky to meet a lot of wonderful people. I didnโ€™t meet anyone I truly connected with until the last couple of years when we were delving more into the details of engineering and spending a lot of time in the labs. As we realized our โ€œfunโ€ time wasContinue reading “Monday Motivational Meeting”
