Time for some TP crafts…DIY garden carrots.

Okay, I know there are some of you out there that have a whole closet full of toilet paper. I watched the clips along with the rest of the world as people not only loaded up their carts with toilet paper but I also saw women smacking each other over these precious rolls of tissue…

Dollar Day do over- Bunny decor for Spring time fun.

I picked these wooden bunnies up at the dollar store after Easter one year and they were priced at .25 cents each…what a bargain. Mostly you will see me do dollar day do overs on items from second hand shops so I think this is a first for a dollar day do over. I just…

Cactus tacos

This isn’t one of those fancy recipes so it shouldn’t be too hard, especially if I can put it together. Just a quick meal that we make every now and then. They are cactus tacos which are made from Nopales cacti but you may know them as prickly pear cacti. You can grow your own…

Something fun for you all to do with the kids while on Spring break, or any break at that matter. They have closed schools all around this world. It is so important to help keep those little ones mind occupied and not in places of worry. Try to keep their lives as normal as possible….

 Walking with the giants.

Lisa over at Boondock ramblings gave me this idea for a fun little post. She commented on one of my posts about how big the cacti were in one photo and that got me thinking that maybe there are others out there in the world that haven’t been exposed to cacti like someone who grew…

Dollar day do overs- repurposing hearts

I had a pile of hearts to redo in my upcycling box. It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day for me to add hearts to anything. Hearts have always been a very important part of our home decor. Here is my pile of hearts I decided to repurpose. First I cleaned them up and painted…

Pinterest inspired confetti from nature

My daughter told me about natural confetti one day when we were walking into our home and walked across a pile of leaves that needed to be raked up (we are not known for keeping up very well with that part of our chores). I thought what a cool idea and collected a pile of…

In the garden-January is a messy month.

Okay, my garden is a mess and not a little mess either. This month has had moments of cold(Arizona cold that is) and at the beginning of the month everything was wet from the rain we got for Christmas. In Arizona it’s always a nice change when we get rain, but we are so spoiled…
