Happy Earth Day!


We took a hike up Provo Canyon today
in honor of this glorious day!
These are a few pics
from our view.

This is a dead elk just
lying there! EWW!

It was a fun day!!!

Patio Loviness

The SUMMER is coming up
and I thought it was time to do
a little upgrade with what I had to work with
for a sorry excuse of a patio...
But at least I have one right?!

It was quite the job to find these

Patterned Pillows ($12.99) & Solar Lantern ($12.99)

Folding Red Chairs ($19.99) & Brown Table ($8.50)

I am very pleased with what it came out to be!
I love having the option to go out
there and enjoy the sun,
read, eat, or sit in my robe and pluck my eyebrows! :)

Doily Canvas Art

It's really easy to make, and you only need a few supplies;
Doilies Rub-ons
Blank Canvas (mine is 8" x 10")

First cut out some of the Doilies Rub-ons are start putting them on the Canvas.

Keep putting more of the doilies on the canvas to make a nice arrangement. Alternate using the different rub-on colors. You can also layer them on top of each other, this adds some nice dimension.

I just used a popsicle stick as my rub-on tool. They will transfer on easily, but make sure they are really adhered good, you should see the canvas texture show through the rub-ons.

To protect the rub-ons use a decoupage, and paint on a thin layer over the whole canvas. Don't worry it dries clear. I used the Collage Pauge Instant Decoupage designs by Traci in matte (it also comes in glossy).

That's it - really simple and easy! I've already had some compliments on it from some friends. I can't wait to make more canvases with the other rub-on designs.

Products on Changing Table

I was asked to share what I
used for the Changing Table
so here it goes...

I will always love spray paint!
It gets the job done, fast and even.
These products are what I used!
All products can be found at

I prime it with the Kilz with one coat
and then do 2 coats of the Ocean Breeze Krylon paint.

Let it dry, de-stress with some sandpaper.
Then, finish with a clear gloss finish.
Done and done!
