New Plants and Terrarium

As I’ve been going through stuff and working on creating my craft room into the new space I want it to be, I’ve been finding a lot of things and getting rid of a bunch of things.  However, I still can’t give up up-cycling something when I get the chance… especially since I love building…

Hello all! Yes, you read that title correctly. I managed to have a tiny bit of fun during the arctic vortex.  It wasn’t all fun and games, but there was some fun involved.  Let’s start off with the stupid un-fun parts, shall we? First off, my car door lock froze so badly that I couldn’t…

Perky wished us all a Happy New Year.

Welcome 2014

Welcome to 2014 and Happy New Year!! I’m hoping that this year is WAY better than last year. Yes, there were some good parts, but there were some really horrible parts as well. We won’t review those though. Let’s focus on the positive because staying positive is what helps us get through the bad times.…
