Antique Record Player Cabinet Redo
Re-do It Yourself Inspirations

Phonograph. Gramophone. Record Player.
Antique piece of attitude.
Whatever it was is not anymore.
It was missing the bottom. Completely. No hinges either; so the lid was nailed into the top. Nailed. Really. You can't see it under the onion skin layers. But I found the nails.
No key for the lock. (That would be a luxury; wouldn't it?)
Not only was it painted this pink-red... it contained screws, nails, Christmas light bulbs and... spark plugs... along with a mini straight edge embedded in old dried up oil.
I don't know why.

Garden in a Bowl Soup Chopped
KC the Kitchen Chopper,

Did you know that Soup Chopped are a cost chopping wonder? This Garden in a Bowl Soup Chopped is just that. I had random veggies roaming around my vegetable drawer that needed to be used. My Farm Fresh Box was coming on Friday and I still had a few carrots, a Fennel Bulb, an Onion and a Red Pepper that were crying out for a hearty and Meatless Soup. I can’t wait to see what FF sends me this week!

Fruit Flies! What Are They? How Do I Get Rid Of Them?
 Ducks 'n a Row

Fruit Flies are small little flies that live on fruit as adult insects, their eggs and larva. Yuck!
Some time ago I told you about my battle with pantry moths.
That was a long ordeal. This fruit fly solution is so much simpler. It will make you happy!

Quebec City – La Vieille Capitale
Kiku Corner

Founded in 1608, Quebec City has a population of just over half a million and is the capital of the province of Quebec. Old Quebec, the oldest neighbourhood in Quebec City and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is surrounded by ramparts. The Citadelle, the oldest military building in Canada and still used by the military, is part of the fortifications that have been designated a National Historic Site of Canada.

Easy Fondant Ghost Cupcakes
One Little Project

I love Halloween treats! I know it’s early to start talking about them, but they are so cute and so creative and just so different from what we do the rest of the year, that I just can’t help myself!

These fondant ghost cupcakes are absolutely adorable and they are SO EASY! I love a cute treat that doesn’t take a lot of effort! Make these with some chocolate covered pretzel pumpkins, some mini donut spiders and some pretzel and cheese string broomsticks and you’d have a pretty awesome spread for a Halloween party!

An organized craft supplies area
Sweet N Tidy

Our craft section in the office room was occupying an Ikea BILLY bookcase in our office room. Last year I wasn't so excellent enough in taking photos and the DIYs were not so perfect from my point of view and now the craft area is a little empty and it has been put in hold for a while as we have a nice toddler running around and when it comes to a jewellery maker craft storage ... This is absolutely dangerous for my toddler.

Updated Fall Mason Jar Vases
Anything & Everything

So there was the Hubs plopped down on the couch, one hand down his pants doing his best Al Bundy impersonation while watching preseason football, When it suddenly occurred to me “Holy crap, it’s almost Fall!”.   And as every blogger knows, you gotta stay ahead of the seasonal curve :).  Only trouble was that… well… I didn’t have any glamorous projects cooked up. With a need to start decorating the house for fall, but nothing lined up,  I decided to revisit one of my favorite projects from last year to see if I could breathe new life into it.  And While you will have to be the judge, I feel pretty darn good about the results. (pop’s collar / drop’s mic) .   All kidding aside, They’re like…. Super cute and junk!  Yay for reboot’s!  Enjoy

Craft Room Makeover Reveal!!!
Craving some creativity

Isn’t that scary?! Now this one takes a lot for me to put out on the internet, but it is absolutely real life. Messy, messy even though that room is actually clean. I just had NO WHERE to put anything. I honestly did most of my crafting on the floor and I bet some of you know how that experience. The opposite wall (not pictured) is my husband’s desk and office space to do what he wants with. Ok, moving on! Are you ready for this??

Bench 8 Graphic
Oh my you guys, I had one of those should've read the instructions first moments. Sitting under a tarp in my back yard was a sweet headboard and footboard that we picked up for a song last year at a thrift store. When DecoArt contacted me about the All About Second Chances Chalky Finish Contest I knew exactly what project I was going to complete for my submission.
