Hidden Necklace Storage

Craft Binge-Girl's Canvases

See those sweet, adorable faces?  Those angelic looking little girls captured in photos at their very sweetest and then transposed onto canvas to hang in our bedroom - they're hiding something.  They are actually hiding a number of somethings.  Care to guess? Jewelry!  But, I am guessing you probably got that from the title of the post, right? I was trying to clean up the top of my dresser the other day and the number of necklaces and random pieces of jewelry that I had laying out … [Continue reading...]

Santa’s Beard Advent Calendar

Craft Binge: Santa Advent Calendar

This was an easy one that took me about 20 minutes from start to finish - gotta love quick projects! Ellie is in love with all things Christmas but like all 4 year olds, she has no concept of time and hates waiting.  She gets that from me.  The hating to wait thing, I totally get time now that I am older than 4.  I knew I wanted to do an advent calendar for her this year but wanted it to be really visual and so when I saw a Santa's beard calendar/countdown on Pinterest, I was so … [Continue reading...]

Joy to the World Bricks


Just a quick one this evening! I love these little glass bricks.  They have an opening on one end so I stuffed some white curling ribbon to each one and added the vinyl letters – super simple and super cute on the mantel!   If you look super closely at the bottom of the snowflake […]

Catalog Inspiration – Crate and Barrel


Crate and Barrel Christmas catalog arrived the other day and I found some very fun inspiration to work from: I LOVE this felt pillow!  I feel like I could totally do this even though there is sewing involved – different green felt circles on red felt with a pillow form.  I am sure it will […]

Catalog Inspiration – Signals


If you are anything like me, you receive somewhere close to your body weight in catalogs every month! While I am a big online shopper, I am not a huge catalog shopper and I have absolutely no idea how or why I am on so many mailing lists. Consider this a quiet complaint because they […]
