That’s a Wrap! 12 Months of DIY in Review

Alright. So who knew when we started this little 12 Months of DIY journey last January, that I’d end up with a bunch of projects that I use on a daily basis? I stood back and took stock of all we’ve accomplished this year and realized some of these DIYs are invaluable to me now, […]

Pallet and Burlap Christmas Sign

A bunch of fantastic bloggers and I are getting our Burlap on today! Just how many ways can you re-invent burlap into a Christmas craft, anyway? Well, it turns out, at least 6.

I like ripping new exercises, tips, bits and bobs out of magazines and keeping them for reference. (I get bored easily). But the thought of throwing an ugly […]
