Flea market find!

Flea market find!

Matt and I knew that when we bought a new house there were various items that would need to be upgraded.  Our bedroom furniture is on that list.  We are currently in possession of my childhood furniture set.  However, this set did not come with bedside tables so a few years ago I bought some cheap side tables from Walmart.  We couldn’t have anything too large in our old room at the townhouse.  These fit nicely even though they were…

Mr. Picky Pants

Mr. Picky Pants

Matt and I have been on a coffee kick lately on weekend mornings.  We have about 3 mugs that hold 10+ oz and fit under the Kuerig so we decided we needed some bigger mugs.  When Matt first mentioned this, I told him I’d run to Home Goods or TJ Maxx and pick up a few new ones.  Well work has been crazy or it’s been cold and rainy so I haven’t run out at lunch to look. Yesterday the…

I feel another Pinterest Project coming on…

I feel another Pinterest Project coming on…

It’s been several months since I have been inspired to create any of the craft projects I currently have pinned. I found this adorable pic from Esty dealer drawGabbydraw and just knew I had to do it. I have watercolors so all I really need it probably a good pen. I have no idea where I will put it. I might need my own little lady cave so I can display all my random art projects. 😉 I still have…

A special craft

A special craft

I don’t think I mentioned it, but my brother in law Patrick, was very big in the music scene. He played the guitar, managed a music store and was constantly going to festivals to help. As we were cleaning his house, we started finding guitar picks laying around. I guess I didn’t really think about the fact that he probably had a ton of them until we had a little baggie full. As soon as I saw how many there…

More baby gifts

More baby gifts

A friend is pregnant and since I was literally the first to know I thought I would do something a little special for her shower gift. Of course I knew I wanted to make a blanket for baby k but there was also a sign I wanted to include. I knew baby k’s mom had been eyeing one on etsy that I knew I could recreate. A few weeks ago I started working on my projects. I started looking for…

DYI Face Scrub

DYI Face Scrub

I found this on Pinterest last night.  A DIY scrub that would make your face feel amazing.  Since it only required 3 ingredients, all of which I had, I decided to try it out.  Let me just say I was a little skeptical at first.  I’ve been known to try the occasional random dyi on my skin and most of the time I only feel lack luster about the results, but not this one.  No sirree bob.  When I was finished…

From drab to FAB!

From drab to FAB!

I mentioned that Matt and I went to Southpoint on Saturday.  After lunch we headed towards the mall part, it’s kind of an indoor outdoor mall, but I wanted to stop by Anthropolgie on the way in.  It’s super pricey and I never even look at the clothes but I do like to look at the random housewares.   As I was browsing I noticed 2 big shelves full of knobs.  Oh heck yeah!  There’s a desk in our foyer…

What else should you do

What else should you do

with a doll head?  I mean the dollar store had tons of random doll heads the other day so my coworker suggested we get one and put it on another coworker’s desk.  Of course my inner Martha came out and that just wouldn’t do.  I mean everyone needs a doll head snow globe right? 😀 I can’t decide if I’m just crafty or a little demented.  Maybe it’s my inner Dexter.  HA! Happy Friday! ~k

I make art!

I make art!

I think I mentioned a few days ago that I was in the process of trying to find something to put over our bed.  I’d looked at a few fabric stores but I couldn’t find anything I really liked.  Today during lunch I decided to run to Michael’s.  I figured if nothing else I could go ahead and find some frames.  Boy was I in luck because all their frames were 40-50% off.  SCORE!  I managed to find 4 frames…

I just need fabric!

I just need fabric!

Last weekend Matt and I ended up going over to Triangle Town Center mall.  There’s not a whole lot there but they have this really awesome store called ZGallerie.  I love to go in this store and look around.  I would love to buy some of there stuff but it’s a little pricey and I’m not sure how Matt would feel coming home to some of the items they have.  Of course I think it is all fantastic.  🙂 Anyway,…
