30 Minute Skillet Lasagna

  30 Minute Skillet Lasagna made with Ragu Homestyle Thick and Hearty Mushroom Sauce is my latest recipe creation.   Who struggles with the age old question, “What’s for dinner”?  I know I do!  After a long day of work, the last thing that I want to do is spend an hour in the kitchen […]

September 2016 Stitch Fix Review (Fix #39)

Can you believe that it is September?  I’ve been back at school for a few weeks and am glad to have a few new things to wear thanks to my September 2016 Stitch Fix shipment.  I love getting my monthly Stitch Fix box and Fix #39 was a good one. For both this Fix and […]

Leather Chair and Ottoman Makeover with ReLuv

  How many of you have a piece of leather furniture that has seen better days?  That was the case for a leather chair and ottoman that we purchased nearly 20 years ago. This King Hickory set has had daily use in our family room and while still quite comfortable, it looked worn and shabby.  […]

My September Stitch Fix box came earlier than I anticipated. After I received my Fix each month, I check out online and then send what I don’t want back to Stitch Fix.  After my check out is complete, I usually change my next shipment date to the end of the next month.  When I checked […]

How to Make a DIY Glue Gun Holder

If you do any crafting at all, a glue gun is most likely a tool that you own.  Glue guns come with a built-in metal stand that I’ve found doesn’t work well; It’s annoying to be in the middle of a craft project using a glue gun that won’t stay upright.  A few years ago […]

Easy Burlap and Lace Table Runner

Can you believe that summer is winding down?  Say it isn’t so!  I’m back at school and even though it is still summer, I feel like it is over now that I’m back at work.  August can be a decor challenge since it’s too early for fall but many are tired of summer.  Over the […]
