Pack Rat Power – Coffee Filters


Posted on Oct 26, 2010

I’m getting ready to start a big new project.  My cousin gets married in February!  Danny is marrying a boy from Mexico (You can do that in Canada. They don’t think there is anything wrong with marrying the person you love, but I digress) and paper flowers are very traditional in Mexico. I asked if I could make some for their wedding.  I’m so very excited about this!  I wanted a way to participate in the wedding, but...

The Weepies


Posted on Oct 25, 2010

Last week, I saw The Weepies at the Aladdin Theater with my husband and mom-in-law.  It was really wonderful to see one of our favorite bands.  I love attending a concert where I can sing along to almost all of the songs.  They put on an incredible show to a sold out audience.  They had great banter and told many stories of how their songs came into being.  It was nice to see this couple making music and...

Cool Beans – Coffee Ice


Posted on Sep 22, 2010

For my last birthday, my cousin did a whole coffee theme.  Well, I finally got around to making my own coffee ice.  It's so much fun!   I froze last bit of my pot of coffee and made these adorable coffee beans.  I thought it was going to be really hard popping these out of their silicon tray, but it super easy.    Cute!  I also found the best use for them.  Put a couple...

Why yes, yes it does!  I couldn't believe my luck when I found this 30 pound box of tiles at a garage sale!  Mosaics have been on my mind for awhile lately.     I had seen this mosaic in a window that I just loved.  I really would like to try to make something on the order of this, but a completely different pattern.  Now I have tiles to do it.  I already  have the tile cutters and...
