I saw some awesome apothecary jars on Martha Stewart and wanted to recreate them for Easter. I actually made these Easter Apothecary Jars several years ago and love displaying them every year.  It’s a simple project but I love the impact it has. You can display Easter candies or even small toys. I might make more this year with little bunnies or lambs in the jars.

Cleaning and Refreshing Your Mattress

Let’s talk about cleaning and refreshing your mattress today. If you haven’t cleaned your mattresses recently, now would be a great time. We don’t have to go into all the details about the microscopic things that can live on your mattress and I don’t dwell on it too much, but every time I change the sheets on the beds I think about it and remember it’s probably time to vacuum them again.

Hi Friends! I’ve been gone for a while but am so happy to be back with you again. I’m just trying to figure out how to find balance with my health issues, new responsibilities, and blogging. I know we all have the same hours in a day but I am having a hard time trying to figure out how to accomplish all I need to within those hours. Wish me luck, but as I figure it out I’m going to make sure I find time to share my projects with you again. Let’s start with this Garden Spring Mantel with a slight nod to St. Patrick’s day.

Rock Trivet

in Crafts, Decorating, DIY, Kitchen

How many of you pin things almost everyday but seldom make or create what you pin? I pinned a photo of a glass teapot several years ago but what I really wanted to recreate in the photo was the Rock Trivet it was sitting on. It was inexpensive and easy to recreate and I love the natural look of it. I only made one, I think I need to make at least 2 more.

Surprise Birthday Money

by leanneja on February 7, 2017 · 0 comments

in Crafts, Financial, Gifts

As my kids became teens they started receiving more money than gifts from friends and relatives for their birthdays. Soon they caught on to this awesome gift of money and started wanting it from us instead of gifts too. They like pooling all their birthday money together and getting something more expensive they really want. The only problem is giving money is boring. We started giving Surprise Birthday Money several years ago. Check out more fun ideas for giving money at the bottom of this post.
