link partyThe weeks just seem to fly by, don’t they?  It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for another Party in Your PJs; a great opportunity to show off your newest thoughts, projects, recipes, ideas, creations, etc!

Before we start I want to quickly share these super easy and cute little spiders the grandkids and I made yesterday.  I had everything on hand already which was great.  I used a pack of 6 styrofoam balls left over from Christmas last year, pipe cleaners, googly eyes and of course craft glue.

This month’s DIY Blog Challenge was to create something with a Halloween theme.  Ooooh fun, right!

I went looking for an oval-shaped frame for the vision I had and found one at a thrift store on one of my husband Paul and I’s outings.  My plan was to create a spooky spider web in the center of the frame and hang it on our front door. Read more…

Last Saturday my husband, Paul, and I decided to take a drive.  It was a beautiful day and we had no destination in mind, we just drove.  We drove through Maryland and into Pennsylvania.  I often comment when we are out on our drives about what a beautiful land we live in.  The hills, the green, the farms!

I started snapping pictures with my phone as we drove along taking in the countryside.  With November and Thanksgiving on the horizon, I decided to share my country photos as a way of acknowledging the bountiful beauty in our little corner of the world. Read more….

WonderFall

Fall began on September 22nd and today it actually feels like it, there is a cool breeze and the temps are in the high 60’s.  We took a drive through some of the Maryland and Pennsylvania countrysides today and it was a beautiful day! The hills still look pretty green, but you can see some color starting to pop out here and there.

Crisp air, leaves turning into awesome reds and golds and fall festivals all mean it’s my favorite time of year.  It is “wonderFall”, so what an appropriate name for this giveaway hop that’s sponsored by Mama the Fox.

Aging Like a Fine Wine is giving away a $25.00 Amazon eGift card to the lucky winner of my giveaway! Read more…

Turning an Empty Wall Into a Cozy Space

wall decorWe had an empty wall in our living room which was straight across from our couch, which meant that each time I sat on the couch I looked at the empty wall and thought “I need to do something with that”.  If you’re anything like me sometimes these projects take a long time to go from a thought to action!

One day as I was looking at the wall I thought of how an old church pew with pillows would look really good on that wall and at the same time provide some more seating.  I tried to explain my vision to my husband, Paul. Somehow I don’t think he could quite see that vision but he was willing to trust mine! Read more…

macrame wreath

I’m sure I’ve mentioned before that I happen to be a 70’s girl.  Led Zeppelin, 8-track tapes, Star Wars, and lava lamps were popular, but do you remember what craft was also popular in the 70’s?  Yes, macramé!  I love macramé and I couldn’t be happier about the fact that it’s making a comeback.

DIY Blog Challenge

I joined the DIY Blog Challenge this month and the theme for the month is fall/autumn.  It’s the perfect theme for me, I can get a project finished while there is actually still time to use it before we’re on to Christmas! Read more….

Crafty Destash ChallengeI am so excited to participate in the Crafty Destash Challenge this month!  I started digging through my craft supplies trying to come up with ideas and found a package of plastic paint palettes that I had bought for the grandkids to use and here they were still in the unopened package.  But they did spark an idea!

I’ve been working on redoing the grandchildren’s bedroom at our house.  One of the things I’ve planned is for one wall to focus on their creative endeavors including canvas paintings by each of the grandchildren.  So now my thought is to do an artsy wreath with the paint palette and some brushes attached.
