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 […]

Ice Cream Float Arrangements

Who doesn’t love ice cream? I certainly do! I love it so much that I have an ice cream cone tattoo. The other day while perusing the aisles at Dollar Tree I spotted these super fun ice cream cone cups and instantly grabbed them to craft up these fabulous arrangements. Aren’t they just delicious? How cute would these be at an ice cream social?!? The perfect summer centerpiece. I grabbed 3 plastic ice cream cone […]

Cocktail Umbrella Wreath

In honor of the unofficial start of summer, I crafted up this cocktail umbrella wreath. It’s so simple to put together and all the supplies can be found at Dollar Tree. Ok, so, maybe I  did a little more than make a wreath. I mean, if you give a mouse a cookie…! I just couldn’t help myself. The wreath pairs so well with my Sunshine Banner and Beach Ball Lanterns. Throw in a couple decorative items and a […]

Watercolor Paper Lanterns

My friends over at Plaid kindly sent me a couple watercolor paints a few weeks back. I thought it would be cool to decorate a paper lantern light strand with them. I haven’t used watercolor paints since I was a kid. While painting I began to have wonderful memories of watercolor painting with my grandma. I’m pretty certain she introduced me to watercolors. This project was a lot of fun! I used FolkArt Watercolor acrylic paints […]

Foil Confetti Cake Topper

I love confetti. It's true. Always have and probably always will. When I was little, my Grandma took me to see Aladdin on Ice and there was a big confetti cannon blast at the end. I'm pretty sure that is the exact moment I fell in love. I've seen these DIY confetti cake toppers a few places, but I just love them and thought I'd craft up some of my own to share. Supplies: Hot […]

Shark Wreath

It’s that time of a year again! What time? SHARK WEEK on the Discovery Channel! To celebrate, I decided to craft up this super fun shark wreath. Believe it or not, this fellow is constructed from two foam noodle boards and a pool noodle that I picked up at Dollar Tree. He’s absolutely perfect for Shark Week, but he’d be great at a themed birthday party or just making a splash on the front door […]

Concrete Castles

I love filling random molds with concrete. My Concrete Garden Orb and Flower Stepping Stones solidify that. I have been wanting to fill sand castle molds with concrete for awhile now. When I saw a beach set combo package with these smaller versions in it at my local convenience store, I knew it was time. I love how the concrete castles look displayed in this oversized platter. I added colored sand, tea light candles and shells I picked up […]

Pizza Banner

I learned that National Pizza Day is today! So, I felt inspired to cook up this delicious craft. It was super simple to make and turned out absolutely adorable. Here’s how I did it. Get in on a pizza the action! First, I created a triangular shaped template. Then, I traced eight pizza slices on yellow felt and cut them out. Next, I cut out crust and sauce for all the slices. I used a […]

Taco Party

Well, the taco party finally happened and was a huge success. Festive. Fabulous. Fun. I was super pleased with the overall look of the night. The Potted Felt Cactus Placeholders were a big hit amongst the guests. The Technicolor Cacti Centerpiece was my personal favorite decor item. Everything really came together beautifully. My good friend Gary made all of the food and let me tell you it was delicious! This guacamole was so good. The […]
