Last December we went to a outdoor holiday market and saw these wonderful outdoor arrangements made from all sorts of greenery. As we continued to walk the market, John said, ” we could make one from all the trees and scrubs we have in our yard and it wouldn’t cost hardly anything.” When we got home we decided what to use and got started.
I love a challenge! I have a co-worker who purchased and older camping trailer. She and her husband decided that it was a little out dated for their tastes so they decided to redecorate. They had a quote to recover the cushions and choked at the price. I choked at the price. She knows that I sew, so a couple of days later she asked me if I could do it and how much I would charge. I told her I could do it and gave her the price which was considerably less. I was on the job.
For Christmas last year, (shows how slow I am at getting projects completed), Mary Catherine gave us adorable salt dough hand prints of her children.
Mary Catherine has a smallish house with this great kitchen space…but, there was no counter space and not a lot of cupboard space either. So in our love of remodeling projects, we decided to make her and her husband a “KITCHEN ISLAND” for Christmas. Check out our DIY: Kitchen Island.
