I can’t believe it’s almost May! And that means it’s time for some awesome Mother’s Day Gifts! Even when your kids are grown, moms still love a DIY gift from the heart.
I remember when I was a kid, my mom had a big extended family of great aunts. My grandma was the youngest of six, and I remember my mom would always come up with an idea for me to make a DIY gift.

I’ve been able to double and nearly triple the amount of books I read.
Below are reviews of my latest favorite books. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. They are all great stories I could not put down. (more…)

Here in Texas there are these fried chicken fast food chains that make this chicken sandwich that my family drools over. It’s basically two rolls smushed (is that a real word?) together with a chicken tender inside, and it’s drizzled in honey mustard. A few weeks ago when I was grabbing the New Heinz® Yellow Mustard and some popcorn chicken, I decided to try making them myself. (more…)
Isn’t it exciting when you can upcycle something you were just going to throw away, especially when it turns out just so pretty? I feel a bit of guilt whenever I put things in the recycling bin sometimes. So many times, I try to find ways to use some of it.
I’ve made Steampunk hair clips from the tabs of soda cans, doll accessories from old sweaters, and even confetti poppers from K-cups. This time I used the soda can itself to make spring flowers for a wreath. (more…)
