2014’s Resolutions, How Did I Do?

    Hello! Are you so excited about it being 2015? I am looking forward to so much of what’s ahead, but before I get too far ahead of myself, I thought I would look back at my resolutions from last year and give myself a grade for how well I did! Since there is…

A Landsknecht Father Christmas

Have I ever told you about my obsession with wanting a Father Christmas/Santa that is dressed like a 16th Century German Landsknect? No? Odd, it actually has come up repeatedly over the years in our house, so it has HARDLY been a secret! Don’t know what a Landsknect looks like? Here you go…… They are awesome…

Vampire Ball {Halloween 2014}

So our final costumes for Halloween were for the Vampire Ball, which was a party held on November first in the Officer’s club on Osan AB. My dress is made from a silk corset, that I trimmed in lace and boned with basket reeds. The under skirt is black damask fabric, and the over dress…

Halloween 2014

I know I am late again (story of my life!) I thought I would take good pictures, and that I would have fun photo shoots, but instead we had RAIN, and a lot of it. So only I have bad indoor pictures, but they will have to do! I got the skull sign from Zulilly,…

Halloween Decor {just a couple years late part two}

If you didn’t see it, here is my last post, in which I paper mache’d some skulls for my front entry way, I used the same technique for my mummy, head, with just a few added details. Here is my mummy head… Pretty scary/awesome right? My kids named it Nana as a joke (not so…

Halloween Decor {just a couple of years late}

I know I am a bad blogger, we have been so busy lately I haven’t even cared! We have my mom in town right now, which has been so fun, and literally as she flew in to Korea to meet us, we were flying from Hong Kong, back to Korea, from an amazing whirlwind trip…

Dry Erase Teen Art

  In my continuing quest to make crafts to auction off this October, I have a dry erase board/teen art. This frame was the glassless frame I got at the base thrift store for a quarter (the bottom one) Conveniently the frame that I turned into a clip message center, was the exact same size,…

Thrifty Message Center Part 1 {pinspired}

Today I am working on another project for the silent auction fundraiser I am in charge of this October for the Osan AB Spouses’ Club. This one started off as 3 thrift store frames, I realize there are 4 frames in this picture, the bottom one is for another project 🙂 I paid $5 at…

I’m Assuaging My Guilt…

I’m just popping in today to assuage my guilt over not posting recently. I have no really good reason to be over here beyond that to be honest 🙂 I have been making a bunch of stuff, but because of my usual poor planning, I have no good pictures to share (my instagram is usually…

Emmie’s 11th Birthday {flashback post}

The other day I shared a post about Emmie’s small and understated 12th birthday party, and today I am back with her 11th birthday (I am so behind on posts….) Emmie decided that she wanted to have a circus theme for her party, and we tried really hard to thread the theme throughout within the…
