Pudding or Jello Box Dispenser

There are organized people, and then there's me. It's okay. In general, I've excepted my disorganization, but every once in a while it wears on me.

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a great week so far. I spent the weekend at Build Your Blog Conference in Utah and although it was great, I am still playing catch-up at home. As I currently write this, I am wearing sawdust covered sweatpants. Glamorous, I know. 

Anyways, I want to see what you've been up to! Link up your latest DIY, home decor, or craft project. While you're here, don't forget to click around and share some of the other links. Party on friends!

Dumpster Bike Make-Over

DIY black and cream bike make-over

Most of the country is apparently covered in snow right now, or so the news tells me. Here is Arizona, we are flirting with Spring. Indulge me for a minute; this is the time of the year we get to brag to the rest of the country. The temperatures have been in the high 70's and it could not be more beautiful outside. Trees are blooming, birds are singing, and the sidewalks are filled with bicycles, scooters, skates, you name it. With this beautiful weather, I've been begging hinting to my husband that I want a bicycle.

Outside [The Box] Link Party #23

Happy Tuesday guys! I know most of the country is covered in snow and ice right now, but here in Arizona its 79 degrees and sunny. We've been wearing shorts and riding our bikes. I'll admit it, I'm bragging. This is the time of the year we Arizonians get to gloat. Don't worry, you all will get pay back in a few months when you're having picnics and its 120 here. 

In the meantime. Lot of time stuck at home means lots of awesome projects, right? Show us what ya got! Link up your latest DIY, home decor or craft project; and while you're here, browse around at some of the other inspiring links!

How to Get a Textured, Raised Grain on Wood

Detailed tutorial how to achieve a textured, raised grain finish on wood. Perfect with grey toned stains.

Last week I shared my Jordan dresser knock-off with you, and I promised to show you how I got the textured, raised grain look on the drawer fronts. If you like the texture of old weathered wood, but don't have any of the real stuff laying around. no worries. I made my drawer faces from off the shelf 1 x 8's. A few simple steps make a big difference.

DIY Foam Chandelier + Giveaway

Make your own DIY chandelier using inexpensive craft foam

I'm a great boy mom. Despite the fact that I am a licensed hairstylist and have been known to sport 6" heels from time to time, I'm really not a girly-girl. When it comes to raising kids, I do much better with mudpies and monsters than glitter and emotions.
