Curbside Current Events: Dumpster Diving Score

Okay, time to fess up...have you ever gone dumpster diving?   And if you did would you dare to grab such ordinary items such as plain envelopes?

What if the envelopes looked like this...


I guess they would be intriguing and could contain maybe an old love letter, a rare historical document or maybe something like what this girl found ...

The Best Tip for Cutting Wine Corks in Half!

I have been working on a few projects, I have, I promise!

And in the middle of crafting with a few leftover wine corks this week I came across a little snag.  I was having the hardest time cutting those darn things in half!  Have you ever tried it, those suckers just don't budge!  


I was getting cuts on my fingers pretty frustrated until I remembered this tip, and it turned out to be a pretty awesome "aha" moment! In fact, it saved the day!

Post Valentine Love - Because I Love Red!

Wow!  Time sure passes by quickly doesn't it?  It seems the older I get the faster time seems to slip by me.  Not sure what I have done this month but been super busy and not finding the time to blog.  No worries though, life is good!


I love Valentine's Day, don't you?   I love it more so because my favorite color is red.  It's so fun to see the red and pinkness overload in all the stores and everyone around us!  It's even more fun to be in love and find so much beauty in all of the cheerfulness and happiness that comes along with that giddy feeling.  Yes, I still feel giddy when my husband surprises me with a gift.  He's a pretty sentimental guy so his gifts come with a lot of thought and meaning...still makes me blush!  That makes me happy...

Everybody Wants a Blue Bench! but that's okay...

A few months ago I purchased this mint green bench from a resale shop for a great price! 


It had a crappy paint job and some freaky indoor/outdoor carpet upholstery, but I decided it was a challenge I was willing to accept to find it's inner beauty!

Spice Rack Nail Polish Organizer

Hi friends!

This is such a quick and easy makeover that it really doesn't require too many words!

Well maybe one word...Nailpolish!



We girls love nail polish and shoes and it seems that we just cannot get enough of it.  There are four girls in our family and we have drawers full of nail polish in every color under the rainbow.

I thought that there might be a fun way to keep them organized and came up with this quick solution...

I Have a Dream: Martin Luther King, Jr. Pallet Project

I have a friend that was unhappy with our community, mainly the disrespect and intolerance towards one another.   Instead of just sitting back and complaining, he pulled together all of his resources and decided to DO something about it. 



He happens to be an awesome motivational speaker.   So last year
