Mini pies in mason jar lids

You can’t miss them on Pinterest…pictures and links to all the sites showing cute little pies made in mason jar lids. If you know me at all, you know I had to try it, but I didn’t want to go all in on the first attempt. What if they didn’t turn out? What if they......

Fun, party mimosas

First, I have to admit I stole adapted this idea from a picture I saw of friends on Facebook. While in NYC, they went to the Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar and were treated to popsicles in their Prosecco. As soon as I saw those frozen treats nestled in a big glass of sparkling wine, I......

Tour de France – ride, eat, craft

I wish we had a bigger kitchen. I try not to make it a habit of wishing for material things, but in this case, I allow myself to wallow. If we had a larger kitchen, we’d have more room to entertain and every July we would be able to host a Tour de France party......

Easy and simple way to upcycle a dress

Don’t you love it when a project turns out even better than you expected? If you’re like me, that doesn’t happen very often so when it does, it’s time to celebrate (crack open the champagne, please). I picked up this cute red cotton dress at a thrift store for 80 cents – you read that......

See the world on two wheels – one night at a time

Bike travel. It means different things to different people, and to non-cyclists it probably sounds crazy. I’ll admit I am a little intimidated by cyclists who have the time and money to ride their bikes across the US, I wonder what that would be like. But since I am not a big fan of camping,......

Adventure Cycling is promoting overnight bike travel by putting together a weekend where people all over the country can register their planned trip and participate in their own way.

Bringing back the bomber jacket – sort of

Purses. Aren’t they great? No matter what you eat or how you feel, they always fit. And sewing them yourself is especially rewarding because when you carry or wear it, it’s like being a walking billboard for your own art. Last year I made a few purses out of men’s suit jackets. In preparation for......

Upcycled wool sweater for Florida

It’s been a little while since I wrote and shared a crafting post – if you are a regular reader you know I spent five days in New York City which spurred quite a few posts. I needed to to a break from sharing those stories and get back to creating. I found this beautiful,......
