Halloween Decor 2013!!

Ok I will admit that I cant wait and have started to put a few things out for Halloween 2013!  First I repainted and reworked my skeleton wreath and hung it on the window.

I then took some burlap, black paint, and string and made a new Halloween banner.

I also made a new mat for the front door with my son Anthony as a helper.

Hoping to have more projects soon...  We have just been sidelined by the family cold and you know how sucky that is!

Selling my home!

So many changes have happened in my life over the past year.  One of them is that I am selling my dream home.  I truly love it, but it is too much home for me to take care of now and I have also moved about 40 min away to start a new live with my fiance.  I am hoping that this is the start of a new good book at this point in my life.

here are a few pics of my home.

Wish me luck everyone!

Nephews derby car

This is what I did today! lol Just this.  A Pine wood derby car for my nephew.  They will put on the wheels later.  I used my dremel tool and acrylic paints.  We stole the hair from the smaller car.

My house is a mess!!!

Magnet Board Redo

For some time now I have had a large magnet board hanging in the hallway.  The frame was black and the background was plain silver metal.  Over time however the metal looked more scratched than anything and the whole thing was looking a bit blah!  So, after seeing a photo on Pinterest...  I decided to fix the background.  I used an old book that was yellowed and falling apart.  Then after cutting up the print into various sizes, I modge podged them to the metal.  When it dried it had a nice durable glossy finish.  It does look much better than the original and is one of those projects that I look at and wish I had stumbled upon a long time ago.  It is such an improvement!

I have not yet hung it back up yet because I am thinking I need to make magnets to go with it.  Which gives me another project to do!

Valentine Tree Quilt

Here is my latest project.  A Valentine's present for my guy...

I had wanted to do something that he would use, and enjoy.  But also something that would remind him how much I have come to feel for him.  He has been a rock for me these past months and wants to give us a new happy future.  Something I thought would never happen after losing my late husband to a sudden heart attack.

I am very pleased with the way it came out.  I found tree material at Craft Warehouse.  I also backed it with a soft soft material perfect for snuggling.

I wanted it to look like our initials were literally cut out of the wood material.

I am so excited to give it to him.  I wont be able to wait until Valentines Day! :)

L'huile de coco fouettée

My recipe for my massage oil.......

Whipped Coconut Oil

My ingrediants:
     coconut oil
     aloe vera 
     pepermint oil

I use a jar of coconut oil.  Plus roughly a cup of aloe vera gel.  I love the healing properties both put into the mixture. Then as it was whipped, I dropped in the pepermint oil.  I added the pepermint because I suffer from migraines and the pepermint helps.

I then whip it until it is smooth and creamy.

After, I peeled off the label by filling the coconut oil jar with hot oil.

I then put the mixture back into the jar.

I labeled it....   L'huile de coco fouette

which is just "Whipped coconut oil" in french.
