Window Frame Wood Flag

Window Frame Wood Flag | A Diamond in the Stuff

It's slowly creeping towards the 4th of July and even though I've been a bit MIA lately (on va-ca in Hawaii), I just had to share one last patriotic project! I have fallen in love with using old windows as frames for beautiful artwork. Whether it be a beautiful quote or image, if I'm throwing an old window around it I'm happy. So of course this time of year had me anxious to make a Window Frame Wood Flag. There are many steps to creating this window flag art, so to make it as simple as … [Continue reading...]

My son has fallen in love. It happens in many young boy's lives. That would be, the love of baseball. He has fallen completely in love with the game. Luckily he had a really great group of coaches this past season. I wanted to thank them for all the time and love they put into working with these little boys! I had several ideas rolling around in my head until I decided on this Baseball Cross Coach Gift. Here are the supplies that I started with: Baseball Wood plaque Wood … [Continue reading...]

Pallet Barn Door Sign

Pallet Barn Door Sign | A Diamond in the Stuff

We had a big stack of pallet wood that we accumulated. It’s usually feast or famine around here with pallets. I also have a love hate relationship with pallets. Breaking them apart and actually getting good pieces of wood that don’t split and not spending the better part of a day doing it….nearly impossible! So […]

Girl's Room Gallery Wall | A Diamond in the Stuff

It’s hard to believe, but my “little” girl is turning 10 next month. I can’t handle it so I’m going to quickly move on and not ACTUALLY think about that. It was pretty evident that she needed to have a little “big” girl sprucing up in her room. She has had the same theme in […]

Spring Monogram Mantel

Spring Monogram Mantle | A Diamond in the Stuff

I am ashamed to say that after Christmas my mantel hasn’t been much to look at. I haven’t felt inspired to do much with it until Spring hit. Then I got the itch to decorate but I was stumped on what I wanted to do. I wanted something bright and happy but nothing too fussy. […]

Yard Stick Serving Tray

Yard Stick Serving Tray | A Diamond in the Stuff

  I hate letting things go to waste. Hate hate hate. If I think that I can come up with a use for it, I’ll hold onto it. Sometimes for a very long time. Waiting for inspiration (or time) to strike. A couple weeks ago I did a Sewing Table Makeover and I had all these […]
