Daily Calendar or To-Do List

Can be used for:

Weekly Dinner Plan
To-Do List at work or personal
Chores for kids

I plan to use mine as a to-do list for work.  

- Use a dry erase marker to write on the frame and erase it weekly. 

 Bought the frame with 8 sections from walmart, and the paper and letters from Michaels.

Monogrammed Wreath

After some pinteresting of course I was inspired to make this wreath.   Everything was purchased at Michaels.  Bought the flowers and cut the stems short and used wreath wire to secure them.   My handyman then screwed in some screws to the Monogramed C.  I used the wire to wrap it around the screws and secure the C to the wreath.

My Handy Dandy Sister-in-Law

As handy as my husband is, his sister is just as crafty.   I wanted to share a couple of her recent projects that were just too cute for me not to share!  First she made this spring time wreath!

 This weekend was my mother-in-law's birthday and Sarah (my sister-in-law) made these two pillows for their beach house. Great job Sarah! 

And last but certainly not least is this towel she made me for my birthday last year.   She sewed on the little buttons and the ruffles to this dish towel.  I love it!

Sarah's husband is working on his masters and she has been busy busy with her Halloween decorations. So cute!

Candy Jars

I bought 3 of the jars at came with that lid on it, and bought the rest of the goods at Michael's. 

I painted the lids and the bottoms black and then glued the bottom on.  I also bought a wooden base at Michaels as well.   Then added a C for Camponeschi.

"Homemade" Salsa

One of our friends brought this to a BBQ and it was just too good for me not to share. 


1 can of Newmans Salsa (Black Bean & Corn)
2 tomatoes
1/2 red onion
Cilantro (to taste preference)
Garlic Salt (to taste preference)
Pepper (to taste preference)

Mix all in one bowl and serve.  It's that easy. 

Compliments to J.B for inventing this one.
