Dreaming of Leaving

pumpkin for breakfast, pumpkin appetizers, pumpkin for dessert, i’ll even take pumpkin in my coffee! pumpkin is obviously not just for thanksgiving anymore and that is why this ultimate pumpkin recipe collection was put together for you to enjoy!

DIY Frosted Glass Coastal Vase

You know that feeling when your heart is set on something, so much so, that you can just about see it and feel it?  In your mind you’re certain it’s the finishing touch, the grand finale, the one thing that completes the picture in your head.  You just know when you run into the store it’s gong to be there, waiting for you, right?  Imagine my frustration when I couldn’t find my finishing touch for this DIY frosted glass project I promised you guys last week.

Carrot Cake Smoothie
Homemade Hooplah

Skip the baking and the frosting and enjoy a rich and creamy carrot cake smoothie.

a simple daily exercise to dramatically increase your creativity
sewn at midnight

For a little over a year now, I’ve woken up an extra hour early almost every single day. I’m not naturally an early riser, so let this be a testament to a creative exercise that really works. I now wake up early and use that extra time to write three pages by hand in a spiral bound notebook. I write whatever pops into my mind- sometimes I write about my dreams from the night before or my plans for the day, I frequently write about all the little things that happened the previous day and occasionally some big plans for the future slip in there. There’s always lots of the trivial “I’m sleepy today and I don’t feel like going to work” (pretty sure I write some iteration of that thought every morning) and sometimes there are some powerful and surprising insights.

All She Cooks

Chocolate Cream Cheese Croissants are just about the easiest breakfast you can make.  And they have chocolate in them, so they are good, good, good.  If you’re not a huge cream cheese fan, cut the amount of cream cheese in half, or just leave it out entirely and love yourself some chocolate.

Vintage Table-Modern Masters Metallic Paints

This Vintage sewing machine table I got it at an Estate Sale for only $5.00 dollars with no sewing machine  inside. I decided to convert it to a side table for  my room. For this renovation I used the Metallic Line of Modern Masters Paint. This line of paints, with a very subtle sheen, can be used for any type of remodeling; it can be applied to cabinets, walls and furniture. Modern Masters paints have full coverage and with only two applications you get the desired finish. They are super soft to the touch, dry fast and from the first application you can see great coverage and a beautiful finish!

Remind Me Who I Am

Sometimes I forget who I am.

I might be sitting in a meeting, enjoying a meal with family, browsing through a store, and I hear the voice of a stranger speaking and realize . . . that’s me.

August 2015 Favorites
Skin Stuff by Katy

Hi everyone! I say this pretty much every month, but the year is just flying by. The past couple months have been not so great personally, but they're going by fast, which I'm happy about. It's September now, which means I get to celebrate my 2 year wedding anniversary soon, and there are only 3 more months until my birthday! I didn't wear too much makeup in August, but I do have a few favorites to share with you all.

Mason Jar Lights for Fall
A Proverbs 31 Wife

With fall coming on, for some reason I got it into my head that I wanted some “warm” outdoor lighting. I knew I wanted to make Mason Jar Lights but wasn’t quite sure how to go about it.

Turn It Up Tuesday

Happy Labor Day! Hope everyone is enjoying the last long weekend of the summer. That is so hard to imagine. Where did summer go? Well, enjoy the day and we hope you will join us for Turn It Up Tuesday.
Today is Labor Day...a time for honoring working people. It is also a time to celebrate the accomplishments of the workers, activists, and organizers who fought for organized labor, including such concepts that we know today - the 40-hour work week, occupational safety, minimum wage law, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and affordable housing. So let's appreciate and honor all those involved on Labor Day...and remember this today and as we link up all week.

"Red Hot Chili Pepper, Raw Red Jasper Beach Stone, Lake Michigan, 925 Silver Chili Charm, 24 Inch Silver Plated Petite Ball Chain Necklace

The charm measures approximately 21 mm tall and 4 mm wide and is Made in the USA.
The stone is 17 mm with lovely texture, has a 2.1 mm drilled hole and fitted with a silver jump ring which attaches a stainless steel fishing swivel connector to the adorable chili pepper charm. The petite ball chain is 24 inches and is shiny and dainty."
