Let's face it. We all have clutter in our homes at some point. It's what we do with that clutter that really matters.

You'd be surprised at what you can do with an old pair of jeans! Upcycled denim projects are actually one of my favorite ways to upcycle. Granted, … [Read More...]
Ya'll? I love cornbread. Slap a piece down on my plate with a good bowl of chili, alongside a piece of fried chicken, serve it along side my hearty beef stew recipe or honestly? Just slather it up with butter and a tiny bit of salt and I am in Heaven. I'm not big on boxed mixes though so I needed to … [Read More...]
It's pretty common knowledge around here that I have a huge addiction to upcycling things. It's a fantastic way to save money and as I've said before?
