DIY Stick Art

stick art

After a remodel in my home, I wanted to bring nature indoors for my decor.  I wanted to create art that incorporated outdoor elements, such as wood, stone, and organic materials. Staying within a super low budget was easy when I made these 3 pieces of DIY Stick Art! I used mirrors, cardboard, sticks and glue to make these.  I love the minimal, spa-like, and soothing look of these on my wall! (more…)

DIY Thin Mints

Are you a Thin Mints addict like I am?!?!  Making DIY Thin Mints might qualify as being the easiest thing I have made in the kitchen EVER! The entire process to make these DIY THin MInts took me about 30 minutes to make, with much of that time spent waiting for the chocolate to melt.  With organic dark chocolate melts, organic crackers, and pure essential oils to flavor, these can be deemed healthy, right? Now, you can have DIY Thin Mint cookies all year round.  How exciting is that?

YAKTRAX…. Don’t slip and fall anymore!

Don’t slip in the ice and snow anymore!!!!

boots

I am not sponsored by Yaktraxs IN ANYWAY!!!! I am just sharing something that I use, and that I think can help people stay safe!   The other day, a colleague of mine explained to me how he slipped on the ice in his driveway. He said he had fallen a few other times too, and that he was sick of hitting the ground! Then it hit ME….. He needed a pair of Yaktrax, and he would not fall again!  Yaktrax are rubber “nets”  with steel coils on the the bottom that fit over any pair of shoes to prevent slipping.   I ordered him a pair right away as a small gift    (he helps me at work sooooo much!). They arrived 2 days later. Voila! No more slipping and sliding!
