This is the easiest DIY, ever!

The pallet was used for my daughter’s birthday Sweets Corner — just 10 DIY steps.

First, you need a pallet — of course!

Good if you can buy at bargain price.

Better if given to you free.

Best if someone sent you goodies — in a pallet crate!

Second, lean it on the wall — that easy!

Between 1st and 2nd, remove the parts you do not want — like boards and nails.

Use hammer please!

Third, add table and chairs.

Mine were vintage and junky!

Fourth, add on other props lying around the home.

A frame,  2-tier holder, and a vintage carousel horse are good for me.

Hammer not included! I used it for the nails where I hanged the frame.

Fifth, make pompoms and hang them.

You will love the pallet for making it so easy to tie the pompoms.

But you have to decide beforehand how many pompoms you need — because making them can be addicting!

Sixth, add flowers.

No need to buy vases when you have empty beverage bottles.

Notice the trimmings? Those are pompoms scraps.

No need to throw them yet. Just scatter them on the table — because you are the boss!

Seventh, add more flowers!

Horse charming got to offer some flowers to the Princess.

And look after her crown while still sleeping — shhh this is a surprise party that the Princess wanted us to prepare.

Eighth, don’t forget the sweets.

Because the pallet backdrop is for Sweets Corner!

Ninth, show off the pallet backdrop.

Be sure that it is in the back 🙂

Tenth, add the sweetest.

Count the fingers — except those that form the binocular to see you.

The sweetest Princess turned six!

.

Now back to the pallet. I do not see its life ending yet.

As is, I have some more things to hang and change them as frequent as I like without worrying on nail holes.

I could paint it. Distressed it. Remove the paint. Paint it again. Whatever.

How about you, what would you do with it? Aside from throw it 🙂

Light in a messenger’s eyes brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones. – Proverbs 15:30

Blessing Tree

12/10/2010


 Come end of year we make a blessing tree and hang the things that we are thankful for during the entire year — some of it, otherwise, I need a very big tree!

This year here’s our blessing tree.

Blessing Tree

Here’s one of the things that my son is thankful for.

Here’s one from my daughter.

And here’s one of mine.

Start writing your blessings now and hang it on the blessing tree! Just grab a tree branch, put it in a vase and hang your blessings!

Now tell me how can we not thank God the whole year?

The Popcorn in Us

'Go out on a limb'

Bear the heat

and expand

pop pop pop!

Let the ideas out,

plain or flavored hot.

pop pop pop!

Chew it and have some fun

like how you deal with some.

pop pop pop!

Identical popcorns, found one?

We’re one of a kind that’s why.

pop pop pop!

Ready the popcorn

for the movie of our lives.

pop pop pop!

How’s the movie show?

Plain? Salted? Buttered?

pop pop pop!

I will come up with this notsooriginal quotes!

Today I am I, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Ier than I!

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind need to sharpen their mind.

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more you know that you have so much to know.

A person’s a person, no matter how lame the excuses.

Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, that’s the exercise of the mind.

So much for that silly quote. Here’s something really awesome that Dr. Seuss will approve of — Cat in the Hat and Grinch nail art!

Check the how to’s of this nail art by the lovely lady in Furry Fury Nail Art.

That’s it. Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because…I said so.

Thank you Dr. Seuss…sneeze!
