DIY No-Sew Envelope Pillows

I'm not going to say I can't sew.....
I'm going to say I'm slightly sewing challenged.
Big difference? Ummmm probably not,
but it makes me feel better to say it that way.

Another thing that makes me feel better is when I find those
little things that make life simpler.
Simpler and quicker. Because well........we've established since
 spring has arrived I'm running a few steps behind.

I'm talkin' about stitch witchery people.
The stuff of legend!
Okay maybe not legend, but it's pretty rockin' stuff.

I needed wanted some new throw pillows for my bed,
but wanted to make them the quickest, easiest way possible.
Mission accomplished.

Simple DIY Moss Topiaries

Hello friends!
I'm beginning to think I should have waited on lining
up a blogging schedule until after the weather warmed up & I got outside
so I could see how much actually needed to be done around here.
Oh we do live & learn don't we?
....or maybe it's just me always runnin' 10 steps behind.
I had company this weekend, helped a good friend with her sons
grad party decor & found out my computer is going downhill.
Poor thing, it sure is putting up a good fight though.

I even got a couple of customs this week so I dove
head first into the rest of the shop to get some serious cleaning done
& make sure all the power tools were oiled & checked out.  
A-ma-zing how much stuff I've collected over the winter months!!!

The good news is in order to make room for
the stuff from the garage, I had to pull EVERYTHING out 
of the storage shed & re-organize it.
In the process I found some stuff I forgot I even had.
If any of you are even close to how I am, it's like Christmas
when you find furniture tucked away you forgot about!

Okay, so before I get anything else creeps up on me, let's get to some posts shall we? 
I whipped these moss topiaries up one evening in about an hour or so.
Super quick & easy & using only what I had lying around.
Those are some of the best projects!

A Personalized Chest Full of Memories


This is one of my favorite projects I've ever done.
It's one for my own home & it holds quite a bit of
sentimental value for me. 

I've had it for about 8 years in the natural stained state
it started out in, but always knew I would just know
when I found the perfect finish.
 As I was dusting it one afternoon I suddenly knew exactly what that was.

Rain is a Good Thing....Usually....and Other Randoms


Holy oh my goodness......the rain around here has been in-sane!
 Flood warnings, closed roads, sump pumps workin' overtime
& lots & lots of just............wet!

Needless to say, I've been a busy girl removing water
from where it ought not be; vaccin', suckin', slurpin', moppin'
& just generally remaining.......gross.

SO I though it would be a great time to catch up on some randoms.
Some AWESOME randoms if you ask me :)
But, before we get started on that; I'll give you a
sneak peek on this weeks line up.

Glitter Checkers & Striped Table {2 projects-picture heavy}

Happy Tuesday!!
I've been posting just a little less than I wanted to as warmer weather
has allowed for getting things done outside lately. 
With this being the 1st spring/summer I've lived alone, I'm just now
learning how to adjust my time to get everything done around here.

In order to stave off becoming completely overwhelmed,
I've begun working on a list, breaking everything into 'categories' 
& noting how long each task takes.

A couple more weeks & I should have one final daily schedule
that allows adequate time for everything. Otherwise I'll keep running around like
a mad woman feeling like I forgot something...which I probably did ;)

So, speaking of managing my time; I should probably get to the project huh?
And BONUS...it's 2 projects in one!

Diamonds & Metal

Good evening friends!

I have been playing around with some metallic paints lately & 
finished this table in a pewter & white harlequin finish.

I know, I know, but I can't help myself
when it comes to this design!

I used the Rustoleum metallic line of paints & 
I absolutely loved them!
I was worried about coverage considering most metallics
need several coats to get a solid finish, but the coverage 
with this paint is great!
I went ahead & used two coats, but 
honestly could have gotten away with one.
