Ring Around the Kitty

On Wednesday we got to celebrate Bristol’s first birthday! We had a tough time figuring out what to get him for his birthday because well, him and Bella are spoiled and if we get many more cat toys or treats we’re going to end up on an episode of Hoarders. We adopted Bristol last August and in September I was making a wreath that was going to be for the front door to Halloween. Bristol decided that instead, he wanted it. He really had us pegged from the beginning. They aren’t allowed on counters or the table, but they can pretty much do anything else they want to…including claiming the Halloween wreath

He loves to pick up his toys and put them under the wreath/bed/hiding spot and take a running start at them flipping it over. He loves sharpening his claws in the tulle or ripping it apart with his teeth. He also loves to curl up and sleep in it. But after all that playing, the wreath was looking a worse for wear. Also my Bubby is growing up, so as much as he tried he didn’t really fit in the Halloween wreath anymore

He seriously sleeps in this thing every single night while we’re sitting in the living room watching tv. I’m sure you can figure out what Bristol got for his birthday. In case you want to make one for front door…or for your cat, it’s super easy and inexpensive. I used the same foam insulation for this wreath as I did for the Halloween argyle one I made. It looks like this before it has tulle tied to it (this is Bristol helping me make that first one)

I’ve read a lot of people who have problems with wreath forms made like this. I’ve made quite a few of them and had some work and some not work. I’ve had consistently good results (no buckling or bending) when I do one thing. On this foam pipe insulation there is a cut and if I make sure that is on the outside of the ring and not the inside, it works fabulously! It’s also easy to add in extra pieces if I need to make a bigger wreath like I did for my one year old boy. All of our cats have seemed to have favorite colors. Yes, I realize this makes me appear a little crazy, but I’m okay with that. Beau’s was read, Bella’s is yellow, Brady’s was blue and Bristol’s is orange. So I picked up two yards of a peachy and two yards of bright orange tulle netting. I cut pieces to about 12 inches by 3 inches and tied them around the 3/4″ foam insulation and one episode of Revenge later Bristol had his wreath.

He settled right into it! I was even able to get a video of him playing with it and a balled up piece of paper.

He makes me laugh every day!

Be Our Guest

Ten years ago today the hubs and I went on our first date. Ten years? Oh. My. Word! So I thought that it was appropriate for me to share with you a little bit about how we celebrate anniversaries. A few years ago, Michael and I made a switch in what we did for our anniversary. We go out for dinner and a movie. We’re total cheapskates too, so we totally do lunch specials and matinee movies. I love that we just spend time together. In keeping with our frugal living philosophy, we buy our gifts for each other at thrift stores. It’s such a fun challenge! The first year we did this, we had a $7 limit at a local consignment store. I got Michael an electronic dartboard and he got me a bread machine. The dartboard fizzled out pretty quick, but the bread machine got used last weekend to make bread for our annual family dinner. I love the smell of fresh baked bread!

When we celebrated our 9th anniversary in October, we went to Goodwill with $10 each. I got Michael some speakers for our surround sound system. Here’s what he got me

The glass is the same as the stemware that we have and the small saucepan is like what we have too so he got that for me. Then there is the candlestick that he got me. I loved it and knew that it was going to get a coat of paint. Well, yesterday with our record breaking warm temps it was time for me to be outside painting! I set up my little paint spot on the deck

It was primed

Then it was painted and there was only one color that this was ever going to be. Can you guess? What does this look like to you? Maybe this?

Of course Lumiere has to be marigold!

My Lumiere isn’t enchanted, but he is enchanting. I secretly keep hoping he will break out into song when I walk into the dining room

Now I just need to find a little table top clock…and a teapot and a cup with a chip in it.

Simply Challenging

My goal of the year? To simplify my life. Simplifying is not simple though. I’m just trying to keep my eye on the prize. The prize of having more time to spend with my nieces and nephews and having more time to do projects around the house and having more money to do projects because I don’t have to buy things twice just because I can’t find something. Blah. I look at people like Jen at I {heart} Organizing and out loud say “over-acheiver” but inside I’m thinking “She’s my hero!”. Organizing is pretty much what most of my 2012 Simplify Challenge is all about. That and refinishing our floors so I have to vacuum less and wash carpets less. So, here it is, it’s March and I’m slacking people. I’ve organized my s’more drawer and my sock drawer and that’s all. I drove by Dairy Queen yesterday and the sign said “Goodbye resolution – Hello hot fudge sundae”. That’s how I feel. I made a goal for the year, not a resolution so I wouldn’t fall victim to the proverbial hot fudge sundae but I feel like that’s where I am. Sitting in my car in a unused parking lot snarffing down 3 hot fudge sundaes…or s’mores…yeah, let’s go with s’mores.

Last Wednesday, there it was. My motivation to put down the s’more and tackle an organizing project. The quarterly Pinterest Challenge issued by Katie, Sherry and their guest co-hosts Erin and Cassie. When deciding what project to tackle for this challenge, I looked at only one of my Pinterest boards – my “Time to Be Organized” board. That combined with a recent Craigslist find and it wasn’t hard to decide what was going to be happening at our house. There were going to be some changes happening in my creative space! I got this brown bookcase on craigslist pretty cheap. I’m also pretty lucky to have a mom with a van who didn’t mind meeting me to pick it up.

I picked up some Zinsser

and some little rollers (BTW, these are the best for cabinets and stuff like that – Michael painted our whole half bathroom with one of these guys)

Michael and I both had painting projects happening in the basement so we had to take turns painting, but I finally got it all primed (I can’t wait to show you want the hubs did if for no other reason than to brag a little about how talented my hubs is)

Here’s a little tip for you to use between coats of primer and paint. Go to your kitchen and get out your glad wrap

Instead of pouring all your primer or paint back into the can, cover it up with a little bit of this. It will help keep a dried layer from forming and it’s ready and waiting for you again. Keep in mind to not wait too long (like days) because it will start to separate

But for a few hours (even over night) this works great.

After it was all primed and painted, it was time to move it upstairs which meant moving around a bunch of stuff in the creative space to make room for it too. I just had to remind myself that sometimes things have to get worse so they can get better. It was like a little mantra in my head that just kept going over and over and over and over…well, you get the picture

I mean really, just look at the progression…or lack thereof

See, it’s three hot fudge sundaes s’mores. But it’s getting better because I have (p)inspiration! I have fabric…lots of fabric. Sometimes I know what is going to happen with it and sometimes it’s cheap and sometimes it’s designed by one of my bestest friends in high school

Whatever the reason, my fabric stash is getting ca-razy and I need to get it under control. 42 weeks. That’s how long ago I pinned my inspiration for tackling this fabric mess. It’s okay, you can say it. Heaven knows I am. Slacker! I wanted to buy the organizer things that Stef (from Girl. Inspired.) used but I’m a cheapskate frugal gal…and a procrastinator too.  I knew I could make a version that cost me less and still get me organized. So I picked up some skinny little foam core and went to work. Now the real organizers are 10×14 and have these neat little tabbies on them which are way cool and I’m sure they are better than my homemade version. Six of theirs are $8.70 and eight of mine will set you back about $2.10. (If you don’t mind black – or maybe you want black – you can order it from Dollar Tree online for $1 a sheet. ) I used a yardstick to draw lines on the foam core and since my sheet of foam core measured 20×30 I just made them 10×15 – less cutting and less math for this right-brained girl. I can do half and half but I prefer flavored coffee creamer (yuk yuk yuk). To cut the foam core I used a very sharp razor blade. That will give you nice cuts in the foam core that doesn’t rip the inside foamy part and make it all wonky.

After my half and half, I ended up with four organizers for each sheet of foam core (should have bought more).

To put the fabric on, I used straight pins to get it to stay since I didn’t have tabs. Three pins seemed to work the best (got this fabric on Monday at Hobby Lobby and I luuuve it)

I should also mention that this fabric is folded in half and then half again lengthwise to fit on the board. Then I just laid the board down and rolled it. Then when I got to the end, I added a pin on either end so it wouldn’t unroll.

I repeated this process eight times (again, should have gotten more foam core – a situation which I intend to remedy soon) and put them all on the top shelf of my cabinet

I just know that I am going to love this. It will all be right there for me to see and not forget about! Maybe more sewing inspiration projects will come my way now.

I also seem to end up with scraps. Anyone else? My grandma saves scraps and she made a whole quilt out of OPS (other people’s scraps) and had it on display at the quilt show I went to last September. Taking that inspiration, I knew I needed a place for scraps on my fab shelf too. I got some little bins at Wal-mart for $2 each and they match the fabric I have for curtains in that room perfectly. I decided to keep my rotary cutter and a little 4 1/2 inch acrylic square in one of them. I need to find a little mat too. Now when I’m finishing up a project and I have scraps leftover, I can easily grab this little bin and cut it up and throw away the rest that just isn’t usable

So, before the corner of my creative space looked like this

and now it looks like this. The bottom shelf is scrapbook paper that didn’t sell at a garage sale last fall (anyone need some paper?). I put binder clips on the ends so I can label what paper is actually in them. The next row will probably get replaced by more fabric but for now, it has letter trays that I got at Target thanks to a tip from Ashley. I think they are going to get ORBed. The bins on the middle shelf are full of patterns, fabric scraps and Hershey kisses. That’s right, Hershey kisses. Can’t pass up sales with coupons making them almost free! The top row of bins have miscellaneous stuff in them. I’m going to label all of them, but haven’t decided on labels yet.

So there you have it. My project for the winter Pinterest Challenge. Head on over to the challenge hosts blogs to see their projects and all of the other fabulous linked up projects. Better clear some time in your week folks, there are a lot of them! Here’s Katie’s jellyfish, Sherry’s beanbag, Erin’s mason jar chandy and Cassie’s faux antlers.

My other Pinterest challenge projects: State Pride Canvases, ORBed soap dispenser, Fall Argyle Wreath

Chalk it Up to Awesome

A couple months ago I was chat chitting with Kristen and Ashley and asked their opinion on a painting project that I wanted to do. Well, a couple weeks ago I completed it. Michael had no idea what I was doing, but knew that it involved spray paint and plastic and our kitchen. I put up all the plastic making my own little paint booth.

Then it was time to start painting (excuse the terrible picture – I took 5 or 6 and not a one was in focus)

Then it was nice thin(?) coats over the whole surface. It looked really splotchy at first

I was nervous, but I kept going and I’m so glad I did. I let the paint dry for a day (like it said on the can) then I took a piece of chalk and colored all over the thing (like it said to on the can)

Then wiped all the chalk off (like it said on the can)

Yikes, I really need to paint the door in the kitchen. But then it was ready to be written on!! Michael looked at this and said “Are you talking to me or the chalkboard?” Honestly, it’s both.

Did you notice that the top was a little bit different color? I had plans for a piece of art up there so I wanted it to be solid black. It’s all the same paint, but you can really see the difference between the before prep and after prep.

One day when I was perusing Pinterest (like I do most days) and fell in love with a printable that I found on there. She actually had three of them, but you can probably guess which one I printed by looking at the insides of my cabinets

click on the image to get these great printables that Lisa created

 

I found this frame at a local store for just $4!

I love big thick chunky frames so I was pretty jazzed to find this one. The color was all wrong, so it got a coat of white paint…actually it got about 27 1/2 coats of white paint. I primed it then painted it. The only white paint I had on hand was some cheap-o stuff that we got for 99 cents at Menards. I love the Rust-oleum Painter’s Touch (like I used on the chair swing and the Valentine’s Day frame) and that’s usually what I get. Next time I won’t even bother with the 99 cent stuff even if I do have it. It seriously took me 3 or 4 days to get this little bitty frame primed and painted. Once it was painted and dried I put my artwork in and ripped the easel stand off the back so it would stay flat on the cabinet

Then hung it up. I tried command strips and I’m not sure if it was because of the weight of the frame or the texture of the chalkboard paint, but it didn’t stay up. I recommend a nail. I totally love how this looks.

You’ll notice that I didn’t have my plastic paint booth fully covering my wall. I need to get some latte paint to touch that up. I’m not sure what else we will write up there. Our annual family dinner is this Saturday, maybe I’ll write the menu up there so everyone knows what we’re having…and I’ll know what I’m supposed to be cooking for 17 of my favorite people.

Anyone else have chalkboards in random places in the homes? How about that printable from Over the Big Moon? Do you love them? Are you going to print one?

A Magnetic Personality

A couple weeks ago I was at Hobby Lobby killing time…and you know how good Hobby Lobby is for killing time…or is that just me? Anyway, I was walking around looking for something and nothing. Nothing for me (but you know I got something) and something  ideas for my friend Kristen. Ya see, little-miss-party-hearty can pull off a theme party like no one else I’ve ever seen. Hopefully she’ll get her blog up and running before too long (hint, hint) and you can see some of the awesomeness that is a Kristen planned party. She is participating in a great challenge where she is creating a dessert table for a party on a budget. The challenge is through Spaceships & Laser Beams and her theme is vintage airplanes. I so can’t wait to see what she comes up with because of the aforementioned awesomeness of a Kristen planned party. I promise to link up to it when her design goes out for the world to see.

While I was browsing and texting and taking pictures of all kinds of things something caught my eye. You know I love a good damask and so when I saw some damask bottle caps I did a double take and they found their way into my cart. Sure they were from the scrapbook section, but these were somehow going to work their way into my home decor. I also picked up some super glue and super strong magnets.

In case you were wondering, I opened the package of magnets before I took pictures because I was pretty jazzed about just getting these on the fridge. That’s why it looks like the package has been opened…because it had been. Before you start gluing the magnet, stick the magnet to the bottle cap to make sure that you’re not trying to go against the magnetic grain. Put a little bit o’ super glue on the side that naturally sticks to the bottle cap and then stick it to the bottle cap

After the glue dries, find a great picture for these to adorn on your fridge or maybe on a cookie sheet turned magnetic memo board like this one I found on Pinterest. So pretty!

They are almost as wonderful as this picture of my Bella in a food coma (she was about 6 months old in that picture – she turns 5 in June…where does time go?)

Supplies:

  • Snazzy damask bottle caps – $1.79 at Hobby Lobby ($2.99 regular price with a 40% off coupon) Sidenote: DYK that Hobby Lobby will use a coupon off your smartphone? So if you forget your printed one at home, you can pull it up on your phone and they will use it.
  • Super strong magnets – $1.79 at Hancock Fabrics ($2.99 regular price with a 40% off coupon) Sidenote: They will not use a coupon off your smartphone. I love their stuff, so I’m hoping they get with the program soon
  • Super glue – $3.14 at Target. You can get super glue at Dollar Tree too, but I’m afraid to go there now since I’m already using my backup phone (see more on that story here).
  •     Total –  $6.72

How great are they? I love them! I think the longest part of the whole project was taking the pictures. I think they would be cute stuffed in a housewarming gift basket or a bridal shower kitchen gift. A little extra magnetic personality. Whatcha think?

I’ll Just Buff That Out

Over a month ago my cousin and her hubs left this “balmy” Iowa weather and traded it in for Florida. Seriously? What were they thinking? Probably that they wish that had done it sooner. Well, when they left they were getting rid of appliances in their house and that meant that Michael and I got a new dishwasher (thanks Dad and Cora for snagging it for us). A dishwasher that wasn’t named Amy. A dishwasher that didn’t give me sore feet from standing there for an hour. It’s not an in cabinet dishwasher, it’s a portable one that we know will serve us well until the great kitchen renovation of 2015. Ugh, that seems so far away but it will be worth it. It had a few dings in it from moving a couple times

The hubs looked at me and said “I’ll just buff that out”. Ya see, not only does he fix electronics, put up ceilings, tear out eyesores bars, help me bling our tree, pimp out grills, stop a leaking roof, but he works on cars too…mechanics and aesthetics. So when he says “I’ll just buff that out” I know what’s going to happen. This stuff is going to find it’s way from the garage to the house.

While I don’t know exactly how he does it, it totally worked! Look ma! No more dings

While “we” were at it, “we” decided to try it out on some stains on our countertop. There were a lot of things in our house that we not taken care of and the kitchen countertop was no exception. We’ve lived with stains like this one for two years.

Two years! We tried everything to get those up. Baking soda paste, magic eraser, scrubbing until my fingers hurt. You name it, we tried it. Except “buffing it out” evidently, because that worked! The combination of the buffing compound and the magic eraser was like a match made in stain removing heaven.

So there you have it. While the buffing compound isn’t overly inexpensive, it seems to be something good to have around and whether for planes, trains or automobiles dishwashers, counters or cars, “buffing” it out works. And no, you don’t get to have my fabulously multi-talented hubs come live with you. We have a lot more to do on our house…plus I kinda like him [blushing Amy face] and after almost 10 years together, we think we might be figuring out this whole relationship thing. But if you need electronics fixed or computers fixed or custom built, he does do that as a business and we ship. Yes, that was a shameless plug, but I’m okay with that. A girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do to move up a kitchen reno date from 2015. Am I right?

Maybe you have dings in your dishwasher or stains on your counter that just need a little buffing. Share them on my facebook page or tweet them to me @thisDIYlife #buffitout. Anyone else want to brag on their hubs a little bit? Come on, tell me why he’s a great guy.

An Attempt at Artsy

If you spend much time on Pinterest or if you visit many places in blogland, chances are that you have seen subway art. Last weekend, I decided I was going to try my hand at creating subway art. I’ve never been very artsy fartsy. My creativity is pretty much using other people’s art and making something fab. Design fabric? No. Thank. You. I’ll leave that to one of my most wonderful friends in high school. Use the fabric to make a pillow or a curtain or put it in a frame to hang on the wall? That’s more my speed. That I can do. Subway art seemed like something I could do though. I’m all about colors and fonts (hubs doesn’t understand how I could need 532 fonts on my computer, but I do) and that’s pretty much what this is right? I started with Valentine’s Day. I picked out some phrases that are about the heart day and used a digital scrapbooking program to lay them all and pick out my colors. Here’s what I ended up with

I uploaded it and had it printed in an 8×10. Then I grabbed a frame that can only be described with two words 1 – cheap 2- o. I got both at Wal-Mart, which may surprise you considering how much it scares me. But glossy prints scare me too and Wal-Mart is the only place I know of that does one hour prints in matte. It was in need of a paint job, so I set up a paint booth. While our winter has been unusually warm overall, it was still too cold to paint outside with my usual paint setup. So I took on the IF – Improvisation and Flexibility. I found a big box from a Pampered Chef order and set it on the washing machine in the laundry room/mudroom and put the frame in it

A little quality time with some primer and I was on my way to a pretty frame. Remember thin coats so it doesn’t run. Spray. Wait. Spray. Wait. Flip.

Spray. Wait. Spray. Wait

All along, this frame was going to be white so I could use it for other holidays too. But as I was in the laundry room/mudroom/paint storage space priming, this red paint was calling to me

And because I’m just crazy enough that I can hear inanimate objects speak to me, I listened

So glad I did!

Sure I’ll have to buy another frame for St. Patty’s day, but it’s okay, I have green paint for that. Right now, it’s sitting on the dresser turned sideboard.

Since Valentine’s Day is all about love, I want you to know how much I love you guys! So, just in case you like this and want one for yourself, I’ve uploaded it to Picasa so you can download and print your very own! Here’s how it works: Click on this link to take you to the picture. Once there, on the left hand side towards the top there will be a link to download. Click on that and you can pick your poison – open it or save it. Easy schmeasy lemon squeezy right?

How about a quick price breakdown?

  • Frame – $2 at Wal-Mart
  • 8×10 print – $2.50 for one hour (I’m impatient) at Wal-Mart
  • White Primer – $3 at Menards
  • Colonial Red Paint – $3 at Menards
  • Subway art download – 3 hours of my life but free for you here
  •    Total – $10.50

That’s not bad right? You know I’ll be reusing that frame for Memorial day and Independence Day. Hmmm, I need other holidays to use this for. Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself. I hope you all enjoy the download! Love you guys!

Moving Day

I’ve been planning for quite a while to move the hubs’ dresser from the bedroom into the entry room. Gotta say, he wasn’t totally on board with the idea. Also gotta tell you that I’m pretty opinionated and sometimes pushy and after almost ten years together he has totally learned to pick his battles. Knowing that I tend to have instances of ADOS (attention deficit…ooo shiny) I’m pretty sure that he secretly hoped I would move onto a new project. Then when I cleaned all his clothes out of it, he knew he was in trouble. Then when I cleaned out the space where I wanted the dresser to go int he entry room, I think he resigned to the fact that this was happening.

When I asked him to help move it downstairs yesterday, he gave in (the term asked is used quite loosely in this sentence…I may have been a little on the not-so-nicey-wifey side). We took the drawers out and maneuvered it around our turny stairs and into place. Bella loves when we move things around so she was right there to check everything out and make sure she approved

Once the drawers were in, I was pretty enthralled with “Operation steal move Michael’s dresser”. Bristol is pretty happy with it too

You might have noticed that there is a spot on the top that isn’t painted. Ya see, when Michael packed up his stuff and he moved to Beverly Iowa his dad changed the color of the dresser from brown to black. There is a mirror that goes with the dresser and it had these little wooden pieces that went around the top. Good for a dresser, but not so much for a sideboard. Fortunately, they popped right off, unfortunately there is a ring around the top. I’m in the process of talking the hubs into letting me paint something on the top of it. Think chevron…or damask…or Greek key…or rectangles. I just have to find a way to subtly suggest painting the top occasionally without being a nagging wife. That, my friends, is going to be a fine line.

 

It’s staying as is for now I just have some decorating to do….and some cleaning. I have a couple things that I’m fairly certain are going here and I’m pretty excited to have a place by the back door to store all my shopping bags. Maybe I’ll remember to take them more often.

I really just like the furniture in the room. Sure there’s plenty to do (like finishing the floor) but this is definitely not an overnight project kind of house.

And before you think I’m a horrible wife who took my husband’s dresser and now he has nowhere for his clothes, I gave him two drawers of my dresser plus we have a huuuuuge closet to hang up most of our clothes (see the floorplan here). Anybody else have a stolen from your husband re-purposed furniture story to share? How about being fortunate to have a spouse who goes along with some of your crazy hairbrained decor ideas just because he/she loves you?

Pom Poms and Oranges

When Katie Bower posted these cute little towels, I may have gasped and then made a bee line for the fabric store to get some cute pom poms.

Towels by Katie at BowerPowerBlog.com

I brought home three different colors: one to make towels for my kitchen, one to make towels for my friend Kristen and one that I have no idea what I’m going to do with but thought it would be good. I also was at TJ Maxx strolling the home department (since the nearest Home Goods is 4 hours away) and found some microfiber towels. Katie used flour sack towels, but since I’m a cheapskate frugal gal I was pretty happy to find a deal on some microfibers (also seen here sitting on my craft table). Then it was just some quality time in my creative space doing something other than reorganizing it. For the record, I didn’t do any measuring, I just started pinning and sewing. I folded over the edge of the trim so there was a pom right on the edge of the towel. You might notice that I used two different colors of thread – orange and white.

I wanted to keep an eye on the pom pom trim as I was sewing, so I had the orange thread as my top thread and the bottom thread was white to match the towel. Gotta say it worked out perfectly! Most of the time it’s really difficult to see the white thread on the front of the towel…you know except for the places where I didn’t sew a straight line.

I thought they were so adorable that I decided that my orange loving friend needed some. I mean really, the girl loves orange like I love green. Her Kitchen Aid mixer is even orange

And since her birthday was coming up it was the prefect reason to send them to her. Target also had some orange kitchen stuff and I’m all about theme gifts so I snatched up three of those and tied them with a piece of burlap and put it in a little gift bag that I had on hand and added some orange tissue paper and it was beautiful

And because I’m a good friend (or so I like to think) I added three more things in the bag. Anybody else use (orange) Tide Stain Release?

I swear by this stuff. I goes in just about every single load of laundry I do. Love a good (and pretty disgusting) comparison? One of these was washed with and one was washed without.

No I wasn’t paid by Tide to say that, but if there is a Tide exec reading this, I’d love samples and coupons…just sayin’. I kind of start to freak out when I have less than 10 of these in my laundry drawer. There was no way I was going to send my dear dear friend white towels for her kitchen and not give her some of this stuff.

Let’s get back on track with the towels though. I was also making something else for Kristen’s son and had some felt staches chillin’ my dining room table (because I can’t use my creative space table for anything but embarrassing pictures) and one of them ended up sitting on a towel.

FYI, I think this is so cute and I’m totally going to try my hand at embroidery so I can have a mustache towel. Or maybe a goatee towel so it matches the hubs.

Did you see them on Katie’s blog and love them? BTW, she says they wear well so I’m not worried about them falling apart. So how do you feel about the towels? Do you have strong feelings about mustaches? Or goatees?
