Red White and Blue Flowerpot
I've been crazy busy with summer. I'm really not sure what it is that I'm doing. But with 4 kids home all day and all their activities, I haven't had much time to even think my own thoughts. Sometimes I just need to make something besides dinner to feel lik...

How to Make Wire Circle Earrings
I'm loving the wire earrings I'm seeing everywhere, so I decided to make my own version. Using Swarovski beads bring these circle earrings a little extra sparkle. If you're new to working with wire this is a great project to try since it's fairly easy. So g...

Pear Necklace with Swarovski crystals
 Last weekend my husband was away. What's a girl to do, but to break out the beads and make herself something pretty?  The kids and I ate at the bar all weekend because the table was covered with my projects. This pendant was easy, although a little time co...

How to Make Strawberry Syrup

Chocolate Chip Walnut Brownie Cupcakes
 So a few weeks ago, it was my birthday. I don't really like cake. Sure, I love Molten Lava Cake , Angel Food Cake , and Caramel Nut Coffee Cake , but I'm not a big fan of a regular old cake with frosting. Usually I eat the top third of the cake that has th...

Dresser Makeover
I'm trying to catch up on some old projects. This dresser is one I got at a yard sale last summer. I refinished it during the first month of school. The dresser my daughter previously had was horrible. The drawers rails were breaking, plus they were tiny. S...

Rachel - Adventures of a DIY Mom
Introduction

I'm a mother of 4 kids. Some of my interests include sewing, crafting, decorating, building and refinishing furniture, canning, gardening, cooking and reading. And the list keeps growing!! Even though sometimes it would be easier to buy something or pay someone to do something - I would rather do it myself!
