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,…

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…

A Shibori Table Runner

I have been MIA over here (shocking I know) but that never means I haven’t been making stuff, just that I have been a bad blogger. I have been doing some sewing for a guest post, some sewing for Emmie’s fall back to school wardrobe, and even some for myself. I have several patterns and…

Quick and Dirty Burlap Wreath Tutorial

The theme of my posts recently has been to post things I took pictures of forever ago, but never posted on the blog (I’ve been going through photos lately) Today I am touching on the burlap wreath that hangs outside of our apartment door…. I know that there are probably a million different ways to…

Painted Bedside Tables

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