With Mother’s Day only a few days away, I thought I would share some simple, DIY floral arrangements that you can create with readily available flowers and containers you probably already have.

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
