“Come Thou Fount” Stenciled Burlap Table Runner
  You may have figured out by now that I love old hymns.  If the canvas hymn art (Be Thou My Vision) didn’t tip you off, maybe it was the spring vinyl art (All Things Bright and Beautiful), or the free Thanksgiving printable (For the Beauty of the Earth).  But I’m adding a new project to my hymn collection with this Come Thou Fount Stenciled Burlap Table Runner!     So, what is it about classic hymns that I love so much?  Well, I’m a music teacher, so the music element is a given.  But it’s actually more the text […]

    These burlap wrapped votives were another DIY element from my sister’s “woodland” wedding, and they were such a great touch to the tablescapes!  Believe it or not, I made 7 DOZEN of them in a few variations to be placed around all the different tables at the cocktail hour and reception.  But really, they were pretty simple to make!     First I cut a big pile of burlap strips to be wrapped around the votives.  Do you know the trick to cutting burlap in a straight line so it won’t fray?  I did […]
Glitter Monogrammed Pumpkin

It is essentially just 8.5×11 pieces of adhesive with a front and backing that allow you to […]
Painted Acorns
  I saw a picture in the most recent Lowe’s Creative Ideas magazine of painted acorns simply displayed in a bowl as fall decor.  It was simple and beautiful!  I knew I wanted to give it a try.     So I went to work harvesting some acorns from our yard.  It turns out that our oak tree must be having an off year, because its acorns are pretty puny…so next time we were on a walk, I started filling up the bottom of the stroller with good acorns I came across, and then emptied […]

stay-at-home mom to a beautiful little girl and handsome baby boy, wife to an incredible husband, and daughter of a loving God. I freely admit that I am not the most creative or original person when it comes to crafting, decorating, organizing, cooking, etc...but I love being inspired by great ideas and putting my own spin on them! Look around, stay a while, and I hope through my unoriginality I can provide some inspiration to you, too! Read More...
