What is Silkmama Doing Now?

Making Jewelry!  As if I didn't have enough to do.  I've always seen the strands of beads at the craft stores but just kept walking by.  One day, I just thought, how hard can it be.  So, I bought one of their "Class in a Box".  I did all of the projects and got an idea on how to do it and some basic techniques.  I was just wanting to make my own jewelry.  So, I bought another book, some supplies and made myself a couple of necklaces.  The red bead necklace is one I made for myself.  A…

DIY Sisal Rope Table Project

I had a Mosaic tile bistro table where the tiles around the edges were constantly falling off.  I was going to just throw it away when I was thinking how I could save it and either restore it or transform it.  I don't remember now how I came up with the idea of a rope table.  Maybe I saw one in magazine or one of the many emails I get.  At any rate, I searched the internet to find out how to make one.  I used the instructions from this site: …

DIY Project using old scented Sachets

Recycle those old scented sachets once they lose their scent.   I use them in picture frames to create a beautiful room wall accent.  Greeting cards work well too, I've done this with Christmas cards that I just hate to throw away.  They look great on the wall at Christmas time or on an accent table.

It can be done relatively inexpensively too.  In this example, I purchased a double 5x7 frame with the Mat from Walmart for about $10.  Then I emptied the stale sachets (or you can empty…

Outdoor Living Room Arrangement

I'm slowly working on creating an outdoor living room.  Right now we still have our old 10x10 Gazebo, but I'll be replacing it with a 12x12.  I wanted an arrangement to place on the coffee table that would match the colors in the Cushions.  I chose these Buttery Yellow/Cream Hydrangeas with Copper highlights, some Gold/Bronze Peonies and a Copper toned metal planter.  I weighted it down with decor stones so it won't blow over.  I thought it turned out rather nicely.  I should make one to…

Spring Cleaning - 10% Everything

Well, I just spent about 3 weekends and one whole week going through the purge, keep, donate process.  I'm sure the trash collectors thought we were moving!  It always feels good when the rooms/house is clean of clutter and you've replaced it with something new.  The boys are loving their rooms now and so are we!  The oldest now refers to his room as his "Man Cave".  LOL. I promised them I wouldn't work on Silkmama and help them with their rooms!  I told them nothing new comes in unless…

Pumpkin Gathering at Pigeon Roost Farm in Hebron Ohio

The boys and I went to get our pumpkins at the Pigeon Roost Farm just outside of Kirkersville Ohio on State Route 40.  It's a great place to take the family, especially the kids.  There are many activities for the kids, and a variety of items for the home.  We picked up some Pumpkin Butter along with a ton of pumpkins.  If you live in the Columbus area, check them out.

Fall Decorating

I've been busy decorating the house (inside and out) for fall.  What fun!  I browse sites like Martha Stewart, Better Homes and Garden and Pinterest.  I get great ideas that I want to try.  Some are my own ideas like the picture below.  This is a mix of Silks and real gourds.  The gourds are attached using wooden skewers inserted into the gourds then into the floral foam.  This should last into Thanksgiving.  I can't wait to get my pumpkins.  I'm going to try making toad stools (Martha…

Bi-Annual Hair Donation

About every 2 years I donate my hair to Wigs for Kids.  An organization that makes wigs for kids who have lost their hair to Cancer treatments, burn victim or disease.  An organization I support.  It's an Ohio based organization very similar to Locks of Love out of Florida.  Both very worthy organizations.

This is around my 5th donation now and it takes me about 2 years to grow it to a length I can give them the 12 inches they require and still have shoulder length hair after…
