Upcycle Plain LED Tree to Birch/Aspen Tree
I have had this plain LED tree for a while.  I almost got rid of it last summer at our garage sale.  I just felt it was missing something.  When I was walking through Target this holiday season I saw they were selling trees like this one and they looked like aspen or birch trees.  They were super expensive and the light bulb went on!  I can do this with my tree with just a little Dixie Belle Paint!… (7 comments)

Terra Cotta Nutcracker Soldier
Being a dancer, I love the Nutcracker!  I direct a dance program here in Fort Collins, CO (Mountain Dance).   I created a unique Nutcracker show called Nutcracker with a Twist, &  I direct 4 shows every year.  My neighbors down the street has these terra cotta soldiers that they put out every Christmas and I love them.  I decided I was going to make my own and add a twist - make mine a terra cotta Nutcracker solider!… (29 comments)

Winter Light Up Canvas Art
I have made several of these light up canvas art pieces and I'll be doing a new one for an upcoming Hometalk Live show.  I am posting the journey towards my Live show, and after the Live show I'll post the final product here.  It has been a process and journey to figure out just how to make the idea in my head come to life on the canvas.  I'm sure that has happened to all of you as well right?  You'll see the whole process here, you can laugh and cry with me :)  … (4 comments)

Inexpensive Laundry Room Makeover
When we bought our house almost 17 years ago it was only 1 1/2 years old.  Sadly it was not in the best of shape when we bought it.  Over the years we have updated it, fixed things that broke, all the things you do to your home.  Then there is my entry way laundry room.  This is not a room I spend "quality" time in.  I have mostly ignored it, done a few things here and there to better organize it, etc. Recently I noticed that the cabinets were turning yellow in between the cracks.  It started to annoy me and I decided to give the room a little love - but on a very tight budget.… (18 comments)
