DIY Floor Pillow

 This DIY is another fairly simple one to make. These floor cushions are great for kiddos to use on movie night or when you are playing card games around the coffee table. They are nice for additional seating without breaking the bank.

Easy Edible DIY Pudding Paint

I was trying to come up with a gift to give my husband. The very first thing that popped in my head was a painting!!!! This was a fabulous idea… there was only one issue. My child puts EVERYTHING in her mouth! I wasn’t about to let her paint with store bought paints.

DIY Deer Antler Decor Piece

You see them everywhere: bookshelves in your friends’ homes, sitting off to the side in a magazine spread on decorating and for sale in many different shapes and sizes. Deer heads and rhino heads have become trendy statement pieces in today’s modern home. Most antlers I’ve seen are single and usually laying atop a pile of books on a bookshelf or on a coffee table. A lot are painted gold or dipped partially in gold.

Guinness Braised Corned Beef & Cabbage With Bonus Recipe

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, which has me feeling all things Irish.

I’d much rather sit around the table eating a great meal with my family, opposed to a day out on the busy downtown streets. And this meal really is the best! I combined some Irish food favorites with Guinness to create a Guinness Braised Corned Beef With Cabbage recipe. Guinness has such a deep and rich flavor which pairs perfectly with corned beef!

DIY Crafts: DIY Lampshade Cover

This lampshade cover is a wonderful idea. You see, it's attached to the lampshade via velcro. Easy to remove and clean if you have little kids who like to use their cheesy covered fingers to turn on the lamps, while grabbing the lampshade in the process. Oh wait, reliving that one, back to the craft.
