O Christmas Tree, Tree, Tree, Tree, Tree, Tree…Part 2

Wowzers! I’ve decorated a lot of Christmas trees over the years, but its been a minute since I did a Christmas tree recap post. In fact, I haven’t done one since…2015!!!! Check out the first O Christmas Tree, Tree, Tree, Tree, Tree, Tree… post, then scroll for all the festive fun since then. This beauty entitled “Moroccan Around the Christmas Tree” featured handmade moroccan lantern ornaments, oversized stars and lots of gold accents. Look at that over-the-top […]

Halloween Tree: Treetopia DIY Queens… and Kings!

Hello, Gators! It’s been a minute, but surprise, its me again! I just couldn’t pass up another opportunity to partner up with my friends over at Treetopia. I had so much fun this past June creating my Treetopia Pride Wreath: Alligators in Love, I instantly said yes when they contacted me. Not only did they ask me to participate in their Halloween DIY Queens… and Kings blog hop with all of these talented influencers, but my post was […]

Hey there, Gators!

Hello, friends! After a year of weekly MONDAYS WITH MARK projects and my break announcement, I wanted to do a little check in and let you know what I’ve been up to, share a few pictures and talk about future plans. Before that, I thought it’d be fun to do a quick photo recap of the previous year’s projects. I’m so proud of everything I created in that year! As I’ve said before, producing a creative project and […]

MONDAYS WITH MARK- One Year Anniversary!

Can you believe its been a year of MONDAYS WITH MARK? That’s 52 weeks of projects and then some! I am so proud of my accomplishments this last year. Producing a craft each week is no easy feat. This week, I sat down with my close friend Rick to reminisce about all things MONDAYS WITH MARK. Rick: I’ve enjoyed seeing a new project every Monday. I’m so impressed with your commitment. What are you most […]

Stenciled Pallet

I just can’t help myself with these pallet makeovers! A few weeks back, I found three small pallets in the alley. I couldn’t not take them, right? Although, I recently shared a pallet project it was time to get these off the back porch and art the hell of them. So, here we are. The other two are still in progress, but I’m super pleased with the look of this one. The end result turned out great, […]

Fourth of July Food Labels

The Fourth of July will be here soon! Instead of standing over the buffet wondering what it is Aunt Lidia brought this year, whip up a few of these festive Fourth of July Food Labels to cut down on the confusion. Not only are they adorable, they are also affordable! All of the supplies came from one of my favorite stores, Dollar Tree. This project is so simply to put together and will make a […]

Air Plant Display Frame

Air plants are such a unique species. They really deserve to be displayed in a way that is just as delightful as they are. That’s why I created this air plant display frame. It really draws your attention to their beauty. My friend gave me this discarded wood picture frame he found in an alley. It was perfect for this project. One’s trash is another’s treasure. I gave it a few coats of FolkArt Coastal […]

Treetopia Pride Wreath: Alligators in Love

I was so thrilled when Treetopia asked me to be a part of their Pride celebration with so many other talented bloggers. Each week one of us will be sharing our own personal stories along with a uniquely decorated Treetopia rainbow wreath. I haven’t always been as comfortable in my skin as I am now. It was challenging growing up as the gay, weird, artistic kid. It took many tears and many years before I […]
