Witch Hat Halloween Wreath

affiliate

I like to push the boundaries of what’s acceptable as a wreath. I know, I’m a rebel, totally the kid your mom would never want you to hang out with (actually she probably would, I live a pretty boring life). In the past used a Sun Hat and twigs shaped like a star. Last year my Spider Web Halloween Wreath was your typical round grapevine wreath but this year I wanted something different. I also wanted to tie it to my Sanderson Broom Co. Sign that’s hanging next to the front door. Also, I didn’t want to buy anything.

Garden Bench Update – Part 1 + The Silhouette Challenge

affiliate

I’ve had this bench for years, my grandfather made it for me for my… 16th? birthday? It sat on my moms lawn for many years until it was delivered to our house my by uncle and my very happy mother. I intended to give it a new coat of white paint and power wash the plastic lattice last year but it never happened and the bench sat lonely (and ugly) beside the driveway. Well last weekend while we were waiting for the man to pick up the cows (they have literally gone to a farm upstate, we found a new home for them because they were a lot to handle with the new baby) my brother-in-law got antsy and decided they should move RIGHT THEN! So my husband, nephew and two brothers-in-law carried it down the slippery lawn to it’s final resting place.

X-acto Knife Cork Stamps

I was pretty late signing up for the A-Z craft month so pickings were slim when it came to letter options. I happened to have an x-acto knife on my desk at the time so I snapped up the ‘X’ spot with little to no idea of a project. I discovered a huge bag of wine corks in my craft room and that’s when this idea was born.

Side note: a few weeks ago I sliced my finger open with a dull x-acto knife and ended up in the ER for some fancy super glue. Let me be your cautionary tale, don’t be stupid with these things! They can be dangerous! [Read more...]

2 Valentine’s Day Word Searches – Free & Printable

The Superb Owl and the Muskrat Meteorologist have had their time in the sun (well, not the Broncos but that’s not important right now) and it’s time for the most romantic holiday. My husband is working so I’ll be spending the night with the baby, the dog and not one, not two but 2.5 spoiled lap cats (actually 3 but we call Gumball our half cat). My plan is to work my way thorough these puzzles and a large quantity of chocolate ice cream.

I tried something different for this puzzle, the bold words in all caps are the one’s to look for:
