Barbie House

I bought this at a yard sale for $4!! I cleaned and sanded it. Then used paint I had leftover from my house and scrapbook paper to wallpaper the walls.

Super Saturday

A "Super Saturday" is a church event where lots of women gather to make things. We also eat, OF COURSE! I used these decorations from my house and made the Pom Poms (that I saved for the Halloween party)
This table was eventually filled with yummy food. The wreath, old window, and glass vase are all from yard sales. The pears I bought at Target last year on clearance. The pumpkins were free from a garden!

Dollar Tree flowers in canning jars with a piece of paper curled inside to hide the stems.

Halloween Party!

The ghosts are Nutterbutters dipped in white almond bark. The eyeballs are crushed Oreo cookies mixed with cream cheese for the center. Then I dipped them in the white almond bark and used colored chocolate melts to make the "pupil". I also sprinkled red sprinkles for an irritated eye look. The orange pumpkins where just the orange chocolate melts poured into a pumpkin mold.
Black lights that you could barely see.


I made these without any sewing. I used hemming tape to hem the fabric. I used Velcro to attach the fabric to the board. And I used L brackets to attach the boards to the walls. I had extra boards from when my basement was finished. I was inspired by THIS.
