DIY Thanksgiving Tea Towels

Thanksgiving, to me, is like a pre-Christmas. Except it's even better, because I don't have to spend a lot of money on presents and everyone is talking about food. It's basically the most wonderful time of the year. Full Disclosure: I haven't been sewing for very long at all. In fact, I have only had my sewing machine for ...

DIY Thanksgiving Canvas

Thanksgiving is often the overlooked holiday. As Christmas comes earlier and earlier each year and Halloween runs later, Thanksgiving tends to get pushed to the side.

Around the campfire was where the s'mores were made and the best conversations were had. It's no surprise, then, that I have ...

Craft: DIY Crate Shelf

After moving into my first apartment with The Boyfriend earlier this year, I began to realize how strangely certain things were priced. Specifically, furniture. There were many surprises as to how spendy some things can be, such as towels and chairs. The most shocking thing I found was that shelving frequently ran about ...
