December 28th, 2012 | by Bonnie Getchell

I saw this fantastic pin on Pinterest on how to make a bucket list board. The idea is to write your bucket list items and hang them up on the board. Once you've completed an item, you put it in the bucket. It's a great way to visualize items you would like to complete. I decided to create a New Years goal board so that I can visualize and remember all of my goals for the New Year!

Button Wreath Ornament

December 6th, 2012 | by Bonnie Getchell

I really miss all of the homemade ornaments that I would put on our Christmas tree when I was growing up. I loved the stories they brought each year as we put them on the tree.

Last year I made these fabulous recycled magazine ornaments and this year I was inspired by Craftapalooza's button wreath!
