Paper Heart Wreath

I picked up this cute wreath at a local shop. It’s made by a local senior. He also had pumpkins, trees that similar, and some flowers made out of rolled paper. Some of his items are made with music scores as well. This is hanging on my office door for Valentine’s Day. I think it … Read more

Martha Mondays: Thanksgiving Table

Thanks to Karen at Karen and Charlie’s Kitchen for choosing this week’s pick-your-own project  – Thanksgiving tablescapes. I liked the one where you make a small pumpkin into a candleholder, so I did a trial run with that, which looks sort of lame since it’s crooked. I guess you need a straighter pumpkin to get … Read more

Oak-Leaf Bowl

It was time to buckle down and do some crafting with Martha. I decided to make the oak-leaf bowl from p. 95-96 of Nov. Living, which Martha also made on the show. It looked not too complicated. First off, I hit the craft store. This was actually a cheap project for me. I bought a … Read more

May I have a trumpet sound please? (doo-doo-doo!) I am proud to announce and reveal my very first Martha craft, from the November issue of Living (Martha doesn’t have it up on her site yet, but once she does I’ll put a link in here). I am quite shocked at how well (almost) it turned out. Of … Read more
