Make Some “Letter Tile Coasters” #TigerStrypesBlog 11

“Letter Tile Coasters” #TBCCrafters Hop   I remember years ago that you would always see the letter game at thrift stores, etc.  Now, of course, when I want to use that for a craft, I can find none anywhere, nobody is willing to give one up and people online are asking crazy amounts for this simple game.  Weird.  I finally posted a ISO on the local […]



Put Together Your Own “Oil Reed Diffuser” #TigerStrypesBlog 21

  “Oil Reed Diffuser” #TBCCrafters Hop     *I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample for review purposes.

Harvest Wreath Decor for Fall #Craft 20

How To Make a Harvest Wreath For Fall Decor #TBCCraftersHop #Craft I can’t believe that Fall is almost here.  Up here in the White Mountains of Arizona, it is definitely my favorite time of year.  The leaves will start changing and the smell in the air is just different.  It’s hard to describe, but you can just tell when Fall is starting up here in the […]

Recycle Your Soda Into a Plastic Bottle Vase 9

Recycle Your Soda Into a Plastic Bottle Vase I love to make things from things that usually end up in the trash.  I saw something like this on a wiki site and thought it would be fun to try.  It’s pretty easy to do and would be awesome with colored bottles, etc.  I used mine for a pencil holder and a vase, so it would be […]

“Make Your Own Earrings” #TigerStrypesBlog 25

“Make Your Own Earrings” #TBCCrafters Hop I saw a project like this on LauraBrayDesigns and thought it would be fun to take the idea and make it into something new.  Living in the mountains, we only have a few places to buy jewelry and it’s either too expensive, or not even worth the money.  I’m not one to stick with the “styles” and don’t want […]

How To Build a “Repurposed Building Block Table” 41

How To Build a “Repurposed Building Block Table“ I saw something like this on Pinterest, and thought it was adorable.  I went around to local thrift shops looking for one of these tables.  Probably should have gone to an antique shop, since these were popular when I was little! 🙂  I finally found someone on a local FB selling page that had one for only […]

Make Some “Rose Candle Holders” #TigerStrypesBlog 16

Have Fun With a “Ribbon Star Craft” #TigerStrypesBlog 9

It’s really easy to make […]

“4th of July Celebration Popper” TBC CRAFTER’S HOP (#TBCCRAFTERS) – 07/03/2014 I made this 4th of July Celebration Popper last year and just wanted to share it again.

Make a “Ladybug Bowling Ball” #TigerStrypesBlog

“Ladybug Bowling Ball” #TBCCrafters Hop I’ve seen things like this on a lot of sites and found a really great one on Love, Pomegranate House‘s website.  Thought it would be fun to try out.  My husband had his old bowling ball in the garage sale box, since the holes just didn’t fit his hands anymore.  I asked him if I could use it for this project […]


Create a “Watermelon BBQ” For Your Party! 11

Create a “Watermelon BBQ” For Your Party! Now I know this isn’t what you usually would see on a craft site, but I figured it was a way of turning fruit into decor.  I’ve seen things like this online and on the Rachael Ray show, but never tried it myself.  Watermelons were on sale at Safeway the other day, so I figured it would be […]

Make Something Yummy for a “Father’s Day Gift” 4

Make Something Yummy for a “Father’s Day Gift” I lost my Dad when I was 17, so Father’s Day can be a sad day for me, sometimes.  I am blessed to have a wonderful husband, however, that I can celebrate being an amazing Dad to our son.  Like they say “Anyone can be a Father, it takes someone special to be a Dad!”, and that […]

“Homemade Glow Bottle” – #TBCCrafters (05/22/14) 4

“Homemade Glow Bottle” #TBCCrafters Hop I saw something like this online and figured it would be fun to try.  How many time did you love to play with glow sticks when you were little?  They were always a “thing” for us – fun and usually only available around the 4th of July.  Now you can get them almost any time of year, plus I found […]
