Foil Pack Dinners

I have to admit, I was hesitant to share this recipe. Only because it doesn’t look very appealing. But, it was so tasty and so easy to make, that I thought it would be silly to hold back. I’m also going to go out on a limb here and say this recipe boarders on the healthy side too *gasp*.

Skin Treatments to Keep Your Youthful Glow

It is a fact of life. As you age, so does your skin. The wrinkles start to show, age spots and discoloration surface and in some cases, acne comes back in full force. When there are so many outside factors that contribute to the decline of our skin (and not always enough time to take care of it), it can quickly affect your self-confidence.

DIY Glass Filler Lamp

 I had so much fun making this lamp! It took me no time at all once I had all of the materials I needed. The best thing about this lamp is that you can fill the glass with anything you want!! You can put photos inside, you could put starfish, rope, mercury glass balls….the options are endless! I chose rope because the lamp that inspired me had rope in it, but now I’m thinking I might just add a starfish as well.

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.

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.
