Is It Time for a Spring Mattress Refresh? 2

Is It Time for a Spring Mattress Refresh?#WayfairAtHome #WayfairMattressRefreshIt’s hard to believe that it’s already Spring! Where has the time gone? This year was a memorable one for weather here in the White Mountains of Arizona. We had struggled with moisture for the past few years, and finally were able to get a great snow season and snow pack in the mountains. We’re really hoping […]


Make Some Egg Tea Cups #TigerStrypesBlog 6

How to Make Some Egg Tea Cups #Easter  #DIY #Craft #TigerStrypesBlog So with Easter being over, how many of you still have the baskets and the eggs sitting around doing nothing?  I had this one, just sitting on my shelf, saying “use me!” We always think, “hey, I’ll just store them for next year.”   Then next year rolls around, we forget they are in […]

Enjoy Lawn Games with Wayfair #Sponsored 13

Enjoy Lawn Games with Wayfair! #Wayfair #Sponsored Now that Spring is finally here…well almost here in the mountains of AZ.  It was about 35° here last night, so old man Winter just doesn’t really want to go away.  Other than that, the days are wonderful and it’s finally time to start planning on enjoying time outside.  We recently purchased a gazebo for our backyard and […]


Make Some Bunny Tail Treat Cups #TigerStrypesBlog

Make Some Bunny Tail Treat Cups I can’t believe that Resurrection Sunday, or Easter is just around the corner.  My Mom was so right about time flying when you got older.  Don’t tell her she was right though, I don’t want to get that “look” from her! ha/ha My family is one to celebrate Easter in the fact that it’s the remembrance of Jesus dying […]

Make a Sunflower Door Hanger #TigerStrypesBlog 10

How to Make a Sunflower Door Hanger I’ve been looking at the calendar and have been told that Spring is here, but with getting snow last night here in the mountains of Arizona, it makes me wonder.  I figured that if maybe I made a Spring craft, that I might fake out Mother Nature and get her to give us some sun, instead of snow? […]


Create a Flowery Bird Feeder #DIY #Craft 23

Create a Flowery Bird Feeder #DIY #Garden #Birds I saw this craft in one of the Lowe’s Outdoor magazines.  It was just for garden decor, but I decided to change it up a bit and make it into a bird feeder for my yard.  I actually saw one of the squirrels using it this afternoon! It was pretty easy to make.  You just have to […]

How To Make a Tower Garden #DIY #Craft 24

How To Make A Tower Garden #DIY #Garden #Plants It’s been awhile since I posted a craft/DIY project.  Things have been pretty busy around here, getting ready to start up the new family UTV Racing team with my husband and son.  It’s called “Redneck Edition“, since we’re part of that family! 🙂  Living in the mountains, and being able to enjoy working hard to play hard, […]

Watermelon Coasters – Plastic Canvas Project #TigerStrypesBlog 23

Watermelon Coasters – Plastic Canvas Project (#TBCCrafters) I found a free plastic canvas project online for this plastic canvas watermelon coasters project, and thought it would be fun to try!  I’ve been a cross-stitcher forever, but it’s starting to be hard with my vision, and my hands.  I figured I’d try plastic canvas to see if it was any easier.  I’m not a pro at […]

Make A Thread Vase With Flowers #TigerStrypesBlog 19

Make A “Thread Vase” With Flowers (#TBCCrafters) I saw something like this on the Better Homes & Gardens website and thought it would be fun to change it up just a bit.  They had made little flowers out of hearts, but I figured having my crafty little Cricut Explore, I could “one-up” them on that, and make it even more detailed.  Since we just recently celebrated […]


Convert A Colander Into A Planter #TigerStrypesBlog 33

Convert A Colander Into A Planter (#TBCCrafters) The oaks here in the mountains still haven’t sprouted, so I’m still delaying my gardening.  Even though it’s Spring, so many times, we end up planting things and then Mother Nature says “ha/ha suckers”.  We then get a snow storm over our newly planted garden…even in the month of April.  So for that, I’ll just wait, and make […]

Make Your Own “Business Card Holder”(#TBCCrafters) I’ve been really trying to think about what to create for this weeks #TBCCrafters post, but figured we’re about halfway between Easter and Mother’s Day and there’s really nothing much happening right now.  I thought I would keep it simple and make something up that could be used to help organize your desk or counter at work. This was pretty […]


Make Your Own Tablet Holder #TigerStrypesBlog 17

Make Your Own “Cutting Board” Tablet Holder(#TBCCrafters) I pray that you had a blessed Easter, or Resurrection Celebration, last week.  Our family celebrated with our church at their service…wonderful music, amazing teaching, a blessing for sure.  We then went out to lunch and enjoyed some time as a family.  Living in a place where there is none of our family close, I don’t really have […]

“Tie-Dye” Your Easter Eggs #TigerStrypesBlog 12

“Tie-Dye” Your Easter Eggs Craft(#TBCCrafters) Easter, or Resurrection Celebration, is just a few days away.  If you’re like many families, you’re getting ready to color some eggs to celebrate.  I know that there are some who don’t like this form of “tradition”, since they feel that it takes away from the true meaning of what they day is about, but if you dig around for […]


Plastic Canvas “Munching Bunnies” Craft #TigerStrypesBlog 17

Plastic Canvas “Munching Bunnies” Craft(#TBCCrafters) I figure with Easter, or Resurrection Celebration, just around the corner, that I would make some fun things for around the home or giving as gifts.  Even though the “bunnies” and “eggs” have nothing to do with what the day is truly about,  they are something that still happen in almost every city to celebrate this day. There are stories of […]

Make Some “Baby Chicks” For Spring #TigerStrypesBlog 9

Make Some “Baby Chicks” for Spring Well, since good old Winter has decided to not show his presence in our area this year, I figured it was best to just go on to Spring!  We only had about 3 days of snow this whole season, all of which melted in no time.  I keep seeing the stories on the news of the East Coast and want […]
