If you ventured over here from my Vintage Circus Baby Shower, then you know that I had lots of projects going on to make my sweet little sister’s shower colorful and fun.

Never Lose Another Receipt Again | My Creative Happy

An organized life is a happy life.  I truly believe this.

And for the most part, I am a pretty organized person.  I love bins and baskets and labels and drawer organizers....

The Miter Saw Queen

This is the story of a girl.

A girl who knew nothing about tools.  A girl who, every time she wanted to do projects around the house (and this was something she wanted to do a lot), had to rely on her husband’s help.

Painted Glass Lamp Tutorial

Have you ever known exactly what you wanted in an item, but either couldn’t find it…or found it, but couldn’t stomach the price?  Well, that’s precisely what I have been going through the last few months.

Early January, we had almost finished our office built-ins, and I knew I wanted to put two lamps on either end of the bookcases.  I also knew the look I was...
