Happy 2017

Hope everyone’s new year is off to a great start!  Here’s what I bought myself before Christmas.  I wanted to use it when I took Asher’s Christmas picture.   It’s a letter board from Letterfolk.  I had to faithfully keep trying to  get it ordered as they kept selling out but they managed to keep restocking once a week and you had to be quick about ordering because they would sell out fast. I’ve been having a lot of fun with it.  As always with me, it’s just the little things that seem to excite me so, lol!



Here’s another item I got excited about.  He’s a lavender scented microwavable owl.  I was sick over Christmas break and let me tell you this owl sure felt good when I was chilling.  I’m telling you there is just a little kid walking around in this adult body.


Last but not least, this little owl cutie  Smile


Wishing you nothing but the best in 2017!

Weekend Project

Found this alphabet  vinyl decal at a thrift shop for $3.00.  I was so excited as I had a plan for it.
Another Pinterest idea I have been wanting to do for some time and finally got it done.  Honestly, where would we be without Pinterest, lol!



Now we have a nice little greeting awaiting us when we arrive home everyday.
Have a great one!

Mason Jar Coasters

I came across this idea on Pinterest from
I thought they were pretty awesome so I decided I would give them a try.  I purchased a box of the wide mouth lids
She used black chalkboard paint and a white chalk marker. I used what I had on hand.   If I were to do it again, I  would use all patio paint as I think it would be more durable, but what I used is working just fine.
I gave the inner lid parts 2 coats of paint.
I then stenciled on the numbers with the white paint.
I sealed them with 3 coats of the Modge Podge and then used a hot glue gun to attached the lids to the outer rings.    Update:  while using one of my coasters, I realized it  had a milky white film (like the modge podge looks before it dries)  I googled this and found where some  people said this  happened to them when they got something wet that had Modge Podge on it,  while others said they got a long fine, maybe it’s the brand I don’t know. So I thought perhaps if I applied polyurethane to it that would solve the problem. I applied 3 coats and yes it did solve the problem. So next time I will skip the Modge Podge when making coasters and just use the polyurethane.

Loved how they turned out and am enjoying using them!
