Do something creative everyday!

Here's some of my "daily-s"...
Love Blocks! Bought wooden blocks for $.99 each @ the craft store, had the kiddos paint them using white, and red...(they blended and made pink...perfect for V-day!) Then we cut up an old encyclopedia, scrapbooking paper scraps, and the cricut cut out some letters. VOILA! Love them:)

This is a fireplace candle holder I found @ the thrift shop for $15. I really love it, we used it for a romantic ambiance @ dinnertime, but it will soon find a new home in our living room fireplace, as soon as I finish the hard surface for the mantel to sit on.

Toadstool Seat! (more on my blog post $2 Toadstool!) 

Sidebar got whitewashed! Love the difference!

Love Potion #9. Printed vintage label out on sticker paper... 

Snow lady! Complete with baby carrot nose, and black button eyes!

Tea for two! (instructions also on my blog, thanks Heather!)

My first vinyl cut sign using the cricut. I purchased a small kitchen drawer front $.50 @ thrift store, taped it off and painted it with a light green left over paint, and cut out this great quote in white vinyl...not bad for a first project.

Rustic candles, and twin candleholders done in a "shabby" white finish!

My kiddos favorite new hangout now has a door sign!  (It's a "kneewall" room off our upstairs hallway)

Ok, didn't make this one, but it was one of my favorite finds. A Vintage Pin the Tail on the Donkey game kit, complete with fun purple and orange cardboard blindfold:) and for $3 YES! 

$1 Stool + Valentine Red Base + White Vinyl Monogram = A happy laundry room !

This beauty was in the basement of our 1874 home, I have yet to envision it's new look...Any ideas??

Fun Vintage Game in Virginia City...will it say, "YES"? ;)

Captain's chair gets a fun new cottage look!

A bit of spring fever I must admit..."Chubby" is watching to welcome his birdie sign of them yet...soon!

Bought this bookshelf (in major disrepair) at the local ReStore for $1...gave it a white paint job, and now it sits in my girls bedroom!

Whew! It's been busy, and "painty" around here! Hope you are creating, enjoying the peace of keeping to your budget and surrounding yourself with things you love!~Meg


  1. Wow! You are quite crafty! Awesome projects! And thanks for stopping by my blog! Hope you find a mudroom solution you like!

  2. Where do you find the time?! You have such beautiful projects! Can I schedule a time for a consultation at my house? I need some serious decorating help :)

  3. Kat! I like to do a project in the afternoon, while my kiddos are playing or watching PBS Kids...the bigger painting or more time consuming projects usually wait for Saturdays (when Mr. Crafty :) can watch them)I am not a pro decorator, I do like to have a little fun decorating, and re-arrange a lot:)
