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, and…

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,…

I know that there are probably a million different ways to…

Painted Bedside Tables

  The last time I was in the US, I was thrift shopping and found 2 bedside tables for only $12 a piece, (even though I didn’t live anywhere near the thrift store, and couldn’t take them back to Korea with me,) I just couldn’t fathom leaving them there when they spoke to me, and…
