"Make a Wish" Candle Birthday Card
A quick last minute birthday card can easily be achieved with any old magazine or catalog, some twine, glue or tape, and stickers!
Garland Made from Dollar Tree Paperclips
All the garland I found was too flashy for me. The only place I had to hang it was along a shelf made from a bi-fold door. So again, it would have blocked the TV. So I came up with this. I made a garland of red, blue, and green paperclips. As you can see, it worked great.
Christmas Tree Ribbon Card
In addition to the free holiday cards I ordered, I still enjoy making homemade cards for my close family and friends.
At Home Tracing Table
With just 2 household items you may already have at home (a glass table and lamp) you can make your own tracing table/area.
Plastic Bottle Cap Ornaments
Upcycling makes me so happy. I had so much fun making these ornaments from plastic bottle tops. I love beautiful ornaments, especially vintage hand-me-downs. But there's something super special about making your own from scratch. I decorated the caps using scraps from my leftover craft supplies.
Distressing Paper with an Ink Pad
I am distressing a paper image in order to make it look vintage. I love making paper crafts and journals of all kinds. I went a bit far with the ink and foam brush, but the image looks awesome anyway ;)
Storing an Artificial Christmas Tree
This is a guide about storing and artificial Christmas tree. If you would rather have an artificial Christmas tree, you will need to keep it someplace the other eleven months of the year. Keep your artificial tree looking nice and ready for next Christmas by storing it properly.
Gift Ideas for Coworkers
There are several occasions when you may wish to give a coworker a gift. This page features gift ideas for coworkers.
Celebrating the Weekend After Christmas
Sometimes family schedules don't allow celebrating Christmas with everyone you would like to be there. If this sounds like your family, try celebrating the weekend after Christmas to allow for everyone's busy schedules.
Hang Wreath with Ribbon
Here is my do it yourself on how to hang a wreath with ribbon and no nails in your door! It is also really quick, taking only about 15 minutes. This is perfect if your door does not have enough clearance for a wreath hanger (applies to me), or you don't want to purchase a wreath hanger.
Didn't Have Much At Christmas
Christmas means a lot of different things to different people. One Christmas, my husband and I were really down on our luck, but I am a firm believer in things happen for a reason. I also believe that Christmas isn't about charge cards and buying and material things.
Having a Thrift Store Christmas
Shopping at thrift stores can be a good way to find inexpensive gifts for family and friends. Sometimes money is tight and having a thrift store christmas is the best way to celebrate the gift giving associated with Christmas.

Christmas Tree Pop-up Card
My kids' school project theme just switched to Christmas. They were required to make a DIY greeting card. This will be entered in a class contest and here's our entry.
Red Oak Leaves
As I looked from the kitchen window, I could see a spot of red at the edge of the woods and wondered what it was. I investigated this morning and saw that there are a few fall leaves still hanging on.
DIY Gift Baskets
I decided to make gift baskets with items I got from Freecycle or elsewhere for free. The larger gift has a dish as the base, which will be a keepsake for the hostess. The smaller ones have six cookies and a travel sized bottle of shower gel from Bath and Body Works.
Christmas Tree Card Made by a Toddler
This is a handmade Christmas card that your toddler/child can make! It'll be a thoughtful card as his hand is the "tree". We made this card to go with his teacher's gift.
Dove Having a Bath
We feed all the birds year round and have many doves. They love to enjoy a bath too. That is our old water pump from years ago, just as added interest to our yard. The bath tub is a bottom of a hot water tank that we cut off. It works perfectly and is the right depth of water for birds and bees!
Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes
I get asked to make these mashed potatoes often. They take a bit of extra time due to the process for keeping the potatoes as fluffy as possible, but they are so worth it. I use both russet potatoes and petite gold potatoes. I take the skins off the russets, but keep the skin on the golds. This keeps the mash fluffy and light, yet gives them a lovely strong nutty flavour. I also sautee some of the minced garlic in butter to get a roasted flavour, and use the rest of the garlic in its fresh form. Delicious!
Pre-lit Tree Not Working
I accidentally took a light off the tree and realised it's pre-lit. If I screw it back on will it work or do we need a new tree?
Thread Snapping on Brother LS14
The upper thread on my LS14 keeps snapping since I bent a needle and replaced it. I've adjusted the tension, I've brushed down the needle holder, etc. I removed the bobbin holder to clean it and realised that a bent pin had been hiding under it. I removed the pin cleaned and put everything back together.
Making a Yo-Yo Christmas Tree
You say to cut 18 circles templates ranging in size from 220mm down to 50 mm, in 10mm increments. Ummm----220mm? I have 4 Clover yo-yo circles; a 60mm (it's yellow), a 45mm (it's orange-like your example), a 30mm (it's green) & a 20mm (it's blue).
Selling a NSM Prestige Jukebox
I have a NSM Prestige ES 160, with 120, 50-60s, 45s. It is in excellent working condition. How and where can I sell this?
Identifying a Porcelain Doll
I can not tell who the maker is to look up information on it.
Name Ideas for a Home Decor Showroom
I am opening a showroom for home decor, such as ready made curtains, exclusive bedsheets, and many more items. Can someone suggest a good name starting with either the letter K, N, or J?
