Fancy decor spheres!

Because they’re on the dining table they for sure weren’t made of TP tubes, they were absolutely made from a wrapping paper tubes. Rest assured. Really. I also made a tutorial!


Pirate puppets, anyone? Matchbox Q-Tip Pirate Theater


I’m sure the K-Pod kids and I can come up with something…

Craft, kids, (whip lash!), CRAFT!

I knew I needed to clean up my craft space, but I didn’t realize the stuff would morph into a life form…

At least she brought her own beverage.

Rust in the Desert; a Century of Slobs

Our property was part of a mine in the 1920s, and has been home to many people who don’t believe in taking trash to the dump.

I’ve been wanting to do something with all these rusty treasures, and today’s the day.

The big, lacy bits are a couple of metal 5-gallon paint buckets. They may have used as targets; they look like they’ve been pierced with shotgun shells. Thank you, shootists, they’re lovely!

My favorite part, old food and toiletry cans

We found all kinds of stuff, including a 1928 New Mexico license plate. Most went in trash or recycling, but these pieces were special.

Happy April Fish!


I did not see this until just this minute because, and I kid you not, i spent the day breaking down a winter’s worth of cardboard (and our cardboard fort from same) and filling my recycle bin for tomorrow’s pick up. Seriously!


Ooh, I love all the cool recycled things!!

I have had a lot of fun this morning making a new friend out of a cereal box.


This is so exciting!! They look AMAZING!

Wonderful stuff here. I covered a 3 inch circle with leftovers and found object gathered from the between things on my desk…I do need to clean it! My phone is slow today like all the other devices in the house. Must be April 1. 5:59…
