Clutter Control Week 2 – Desk Armoire

Do you remember, before flat screens, how humongous TVs used to be?  We had one of those ridiculously large televisions and it was impossible to find an entertainment center big enough to hold it.  After searching and searching for something that would work and not finding anything, my husband decided to build it himself.  I found a… Continue reading Clutter Control Week 2 – Desk Armoire

Food for Thought Week 2 – Lemon Lavender Shortbread

  I was standing in my kitchen this morning drinking my first cup of coffee and looked out into the backyard to see what kind of day it was going to be.  The sun was just starting to come up, and even though the weather report I just watched said it was near freezing, it… Continue reading Food for Thought Week 2 – Lemon Lavender Shortbread

Food for Thought Week 1 – S’mores on a Stick

I recently received a crème brulee torch as a Christmas gift and needed to find out where to get the butane that goes in it.  I did an internet search for “butane refill” and came across a bunch of recipes to use my torch on.  This one for S’mores on a Stick, from http://www.kraftrecipes.com, sounded like… Continue reading Food for Thought Week 1 – S’mores on a Stick

Creative Outlet Week 1 – DIY Coasters

I have been obsessed with Mod Podge since I was about 10 years old.  Just opening the jar and releasing the familiar fumes is enough to take me back to my childhood.  I think my first Mod Podge project consisted of decoupaging horse images onto a piece of wood.  It was hideous, but my mom dutifully hung… Continue reading Creative Outlet Week 1 – DIY Coasters
