How To Make Fall Lanterns – DIY

Fall is my favorite time of the year. The leaves are past their peak of changing colors and almost are half way fallen off the trees now. Yesterday we stopped at one of my favorite parts and I gathered different fall colored leaves that I don’t see to much here. I decided to use those leaves to make some fall lanterns. I haven’t really had the chance to enjoy fall. I feel like I have been robbed of some of the things that I really enjoy, such as apple picking, fall drives, and pumpkin patches. With all the crazy stuff that has happened since September, things are finally slowly becoming normal again. I am able to sit back and start enjoying some of the things again. I am also really enjoying crafting again. I have a lot of ideas of things I want to start making for gifts this year and some new decorations. I will explain how I made both the Turkey Lantern and the Fall Leaf Lantern.

Santa Fe Art Supply Artist Brush Set Review

Santa Fe Art Supply Artist Brush Set Review

I have only been painting about a year now. I have noticed that up until recently I wasn’t happy with the paint brushes that I buy. They always seem to shed hair. I am not crazy about hair on the canvas as it’s hard to pick out. I recently had the chance to purchase the Santa Fe Art Supply Artist Brush Set for a heavily discounted price for my review. I must say that this is the best money I have ever spent on a set of paint brushes.

Angel Craft Podge Semi Gloss Review – DIY Homemade Coasters

Angel Craft Podge Review

One of my favorite things to use during crafts to make homemade gifts is a crafting modge podge. One of the easiest gifts we have made are some homemade coasters. They are super easy and fun to make. This time around we have used Angel Craft Podge Semi Gloss.


Angel Craft Podge is a new product to me. This is a semi glass. It glues, seals, and protects. The nice thing about this bottle is it has its own built in brush on the cap. We tried to use it for our project, however we needed to grab a bigger brush to cover more area.

Starting Some New Family Memories With A Year of Painting

PicMonkey Collage

Lately I have been doing a lot of thinking. I think that all of us spend way to much time on electronics. I have been wanting to make more memorable moments with the kids. I don’t want them to grow up and say well I spent so much time on playing video games we didn’t do anything fun. In fact I try to remember things my parents and I did and I can’t but that was only because my parents owned a bar and it wasn’t always easy for them to get away. So we have been adding in more game nights and going places just to get out of the house.

Taking Time For Me – Experimenting with Water Colors

The last couple weeks have been so busy for me. I don’t think I have really taken any time for me. It has been busy with making sure the house is clean, the kids homework is done for the day, ice skating, girl scouts, and doctors appointments.

I have had this incredible urge to want to paint lately. I don’t know where it’s coming from. I can’t draw to save my life. I bought some acrylic paints and some canvas. I also bought some good watercolors.
