I wanted to call this post "Create a creepy cornucopia" because over-the-top alliteration knows no season, but I resisted because it's early and I like you guys. I've had these out on the kitchen table for three days, and my brother still hasn't noticed the little "bugs" infesting our Halloween... Continue reading

I spent a good portion of last Sunday in the kitchen making from scratch and canning six jars of tomato sauce. It was a wonderful, exhausting, hot evening, but next time I decide at 3 pm to make a double batch of sauce and can it all before bed, please... Continue reading

I love this project for an industrial-meets-rustic wedding. The venue where I work part-time as a day-of event coordinator pulls that vibe off perfectly. It's an old paper mill (originally built in 1898) with plenty of exposed brick, huge ceilings, and original woodwork. I could totally see this DIY photo... Continue reading

Hey Arlie!! Joni Mitchell and the Beatles FTW :) I am debating sharing a video of the lighter trick (although I don't think I've done it since college and might be a little rusty). And your party trick is awesome!!!!

I'm back in the saddle today after my first cold of the season knocked the stuffing out of me. There's nothing 13 hours of sleep and zinc can't cure! And just in time too -- we're going out to dinner tonight to celebrate my birthday a little early. And tomorrow... Continue reading

This project is great even if it's your first time needle felting (which I know firsthand because this was my first time needle felting!). Beware though -- it's kind of addictive, and surprisingly affordable. I got all of my supplies here, which just so happens to be in the next... Continue reading

Hi Sheila! You have to use a laser printer. Unfortunately the process doesn't work with an inkjet printer. If you don't have a laser printer at home (we don't either), try printing them at work or at a copy shop. Good luck!
