Did you hear our exciting news? The floral chandelier that I created for Round 3 of the Cricut Design Space Star challenge is in the Top Ten and we need your vote!

If you’re a regular reader you probably know that once upon a time I had a scrapbook …

Monday happenings

Posted on September 29, 2014

Hello and sorry- which I learned from my 3 year old son this week is how you show “nice behavior”. As in, I asked him to demonstrate what nice behavior looks like and he promptly said, “Hello, I sorry”. Pretty much spot on for 3 year old’s who consistently need to apologize for their toddler behavior. But I must apologize for this post coming to you late on Monday afternoon. I was locked out of my wordpress account all weekend and just got access again this morning. Yes, probably because of all the porn I was trying to post in a new series I call Monday Eye Candy. Just kidding of course. Anyways, it’s Monday and here’s what’s happening in the world of the Bitches. Tricia’s Cricut Design Space Star Challenge Project made the Top Ten!!! Was there any doubt that this chandelier wouldn’t be in the Top Ten? It’s …

A Year of Change {September Reveal}

Posted on September 26, 2014

By now you guys all know the drill, right? Last Friday of the month = reveal day for the Year of Change Challenge. One year, 12 projects, easy ways to bring style into your house. This month we, along with the constant Life on Virginia Street, Commona My House, and Rosa Beltran Design tackled September’s project which was to DIY art. We were joined by Jen from The Project Girl, who you might remember beat me in the first round of the Cricut Design Space Star challenge with her killer gold cut-out cuff bracelet. But I ain’t mad girl- there was no other project that I would have liked losing to more! Back to art, more specifically DIY art. If I’m being completely truthful, I actually suggested this theme for September and then spent a good 25 days putting it on the back burner. I had no clue what to …

Thursday Ten {houseplants}

Posted on September 25, 2014

Do you guys ever feel like the air in your house needs to be purified? Given that I have three kids and one who still likes to poop in anything but a toilet, I’m always feeling that fresh air is needed in my house. Houseplants are a great way to infuse fresh oxygen into your house, but let’s be real, I’ve never even considered this benefit of a plant when filling my house up with leafy green things. I just like plants for bringing natural texture to a room and filling up pretty vases to sit on things. Taller plants are also a great way to bring height to a room and break up the lines of a space. I don’t claim to have a green thumb and keeping plants alive is certainly a trial and error process for me. I’ve found that watering once a week is the right …

She’s crafty {nailhead pinboard}

Posted on September 24, 2014

I’ve been looking for a pin board for my daughter’s room redo. She wants a place to save all her important papers – you know how it is when you’re a busy 9 year old. I fell in love with this Greek key bulletin board from Pottery Barn Teen. Bu Only problem – I baulked at paying over $150 for a pinboard for a little girl’s room. I’m crazy like that, especially when I knew I could make something like it that was even better. This is how my pinboard turned out & another little sneak at my daughter’s room.  I like the look of the framed pinboard so I dug up this vintage frame that I used to use as part of my booth back in my convention days. It was really a simple project. To start I gathered the frame, cork board (luckily it was a pretty close …
