Welcome To My Colorful World!

Welcome to my colorful world. I am a happy (most of the time!) wife, mom, MeMaw, artist, and art teacher. I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I also love to create, cook, nest, decorate, entertain family and friends, laugh, collect vintage stuff, snuggle my cats and dog, play outdoors, and so much more! In addition to all this, I also publish an online magazine with my dear friend, called Mermaids of the Lake. Oh, and I love a big cup of coffee with cream, a dry martini, red wine, blingy jewelry, pink lipstick, blue fingernail polish. I love color! Beautiful colors inspire, motivate, and move me!!! What's my favorite color? I can't choose. I love them all! Yellow, pink, red, turquoise, blue, purple, orange, green and every variation in between!

DIY Projects

I love to make homemade health, beauty, household, yard, and cleaning products. It is fun and rewarding to be creative and at the same time, save money, the environment, and your health!

DIY Cleaner for Wood Floors and Wood Mini Blinds
I have wood blinds on all the windows of the second floor of my house. They get so dusty. As much as I love having everything super clean and tidy, I have this thing about cleaning those darn mini blinds. I really dislike the task. So, I tend to not do it for long lengths of time and then the dust turns to stuck-on grime that cannot be simply dusted off. (Especially in the bathroom where there is moisture) Ugh! Make your own Cleaner for Wood Floors and Wood Mini Blinds.

DIY Linen Spray
I love to use Linen Spray, but it is expensive! Not if you make it yourself! See how to make luscious-smelling Linen Spray using only three ingredients!

DIY Non-Toxic, All-Purpose Cleaner
My kitchen and bathroom are gleaming clean without harsh chemicals! And, they smell fresh, thanks to my new favorite homemade all-purpose cleaner! Yours can too! Make Non-Toxic, All-Purpose Cleaner now and get cleaning!

Make yourself a batch of Maple Sugar Scrub! Oh yum! Another deliciously-scented, amazing body scrub using ingredients from your kitchen pantry!

DIY Lovely Lemon Sugar Scrub
This amazing, luscious sugar scrub will make your skin soft and smooth and takes only minutes to make. Using ingredients found in your kitchen pantry, you can whip up a batch any time you need it! Make yourself a batch of Lovely Lemon Sugar Scrub!

DIY Brown Sugar Coffee Scrub
This Brown Sugar Coffee Scrub smells heavenly and leaves my skin soft and smooth. Okay, there are those who claim that the caffeine in coffee grounds, when massaged into the skin, helps to diminish the appearance of cellulite by stimulating blood flow. Hmmm... who wouldn't want that? 

DIY Mod Podge
Quick and easy, dries clear and fast. Perfect for preschoolers and/or limited budgets. Make yourself a batch of Homemade Mod Podge and get busy being creative!

DIY Super Simple Shower Cleaner
I am so tired of either scrubbing my shower or having to buy those expensive spray-after-shower-cleaners that are on the market today. Plus, when I can I am ditching the chemicals and using as pure as possible products for my household cleaning. See how to make your own Super Simple Shower Cleaner here on: Mermaids of the Lake

DIY: Homemade Carpet Fresh
I love, love this all natural recipe for Homemade Carpet Fresh. Carpet fresheners are basically, a scented-type powder that you sprinkle on your carpet, let sit, then vacuum up; leaving your carpet smelling fresh! See how I made my Homemade Carpet Fresh.

Did you know you can revive old, scratched and faded wood furniture with just two ingredients found in your pantry? I am so very happy to have tried this recently and to have found that it works! See how I made and used this Furniture Polish & Reviver on my Mermaids of the Lake Women's magazine.
