  • DIY KID ABSTRACT PAINTING

    A couple weekends ago, Mya had a 102 degree temperature and a faucet for a nose. (You’re welcome for that visual.) The weather was beautiful– a whopping 60-something degrees in February– and we…

  • FINDING INSPIRATION in ABSTRACT PAINTINGS

    We have a blank wall that stares you in the face when you first walk in our front door. It’s nakedness makes me uncomfortable and the issue needs to be addressed.…

  • PONY BEAD SUN CATCHERS

    With little effort, these turned out pretty cool. I won’t lie, though: They sat on our counter for a good month before I finally sanded them down and drilled a hole in…

  • BROOKSIDE ART FAIR

    One fun event that we attended this year was the Brookside Art Fair. We blew through it because Mya was taking more interest in the dogs and babies (just like last year),…

    If you have a lot of old t-shirts and some serious down time, then this project is for you! A couple months ago, you would’ve found me on our living room floor every…

  • PERLER BEAD BOWLS

    I love art glass. My favorite artists are Lino Tagliapietra and Steven Main… and Mya, of course. But since she’s not getting near a 2000 degree kiln anytime soon, we went a safer, way less…

  • A SAPPY SIGN

    When we hung up the Mya shrine in the master bedroom, it made me realize that many other of our walls are naked. I have this thing where I don’t like hanging anything…

  • CREATE ART FROM PHONE PHOTOS

    After living in our home for almost four years, I’m finally getting our master bedroom put together. It’s not complete (not that I ever will think it will be!), but one…

  • SALAD SPINNER PAINTINGS

    Am I the only one that wants it to snow a boatload? I just want to get out and play in some snow! But I digress… “Salad spinner paintings” are exactly what you think. We…
