A Gorgeous Fall Centerpiece in 5 Minutes or Less

I’ve been looking for a gorgeous fall centerpiece to use for Thanksgiving, but I haven’t found anything I like. I didn’t want to buy something and have to store it all year. I’m trying to limit the number of new things I buy and store for holidays. As I was searching on Pinterest, I saw […]

Valentine Origami Boxes | Easy Valentine Craft

How to Make a Gratitude Journal from a Paper Lunch Bag

Did you know that July 31st is National Mutt’s Day? Well it is.  National Mutt’s Day was created in 2005 as a day to celebrate mixed breed dogs.  Over breeding pedigreed dogs can result in dogs that are not healthy.  They have been “in bred” too much and often have health issues. These are the […]

Freshen Indoor Air Naturally – Coffee Tealight DIY

I love being able to freshen indoor air naturally.  I’m not a big fan of all the chemicals and artificial ingredients in many air freshener products.
