Last week I posted on my latest adventure with beadboard wallpaper – my kitchen backsplash. Well, I got inspired and decided to re-do the art above my stove.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year… Christmas must have hijacked that song from the lesser-known autumn carols, because October definitely wins that title.

I am an accessories girl.
Accessories are less commitment, easy add-ons, and can be inexpensive (!).
One of my favorite types of gifts, to both give and receive, is something that is homemade.

If you’re like me, you have cables and chargers coming out of the wazoo.
Between the computers, cameras, iPods, iPhones, Kindles, so on and on, we have a lot of cords, cables and chargers. That is, a lot of cords that look exactly the same and tangle into a big electronic ratsnest.
You can’t buy happiness. But you can buy a $5 can of chalkboard spray paint. And that’s pretty good too.
I have finally succumbed to the mega-trend that is subway art.
