DIY Coffee Cup Rack

DIY Coffee Mug Rack

A cup of coffee at 7pm is not an entirely wise idea. You could argue though that it sometimes leads to fun things, like this DIY Coffee Cup Rack! That was the case the other night, an evening coffee lead me to being wide awake and ready to build something at 9pm. What better item to build than a coffee cup rack? This project was very simple and I was able to use some wood that I already had on hand. No special trips to the hardware store for anything. The one I made measures 14" across by 30" long. You can definitely adjust the measurements to make it la[...]


Hockey Printable & Frame Re-vamp

Eat. Sleep. Play Hockey. Printable

We are in the thick of hockey season here in Canada. January brings about an abundance of tournaments, travel, stinky hockey gear and memories galore for both of our boys.

We even try to increase the excitement by placing little wage[...]

I don't care that they all end the same or generally have an unrealistic storyline, the leading men in each story is a gift from Santa[...]


Wild Things Printable

I love music. But really, who doesn't? It's everywhere, whether it be the radio or your own personal fine tuned playlist serenading you with Adele's newest album or RHCP greatest hits. Sometimes you hear a certain melody & it brings you back to a certain point in time, a moment or memory you may have forgotten. Other times you hear a song and lyrics stick you for no apparent reason. What do you do when lyrics get stuck in your head? You make a printable! I LOVE the line in Alessia Cara's song "Wild Things" that says "Find me where the wild things are". I[...]
