About Me

Fort Benning, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too!

DIY stair stepping shelf

I started a tradition of making my children special birthday hats.  Until yesterday they hadn't been displayed in our new Texas home because I just don't have enough wall space like I did in Georgia.
 I made this GREAT display peice so you can see them all.  I got a $2.44 2x4 from home depot and you get 2 free cuts when you purchase it, so I had them cut it in 3 equal parts. It ended up being the perfect size...phew! 
I got some wood glue while I was there, once I got home, I glued two peices one on top of the other and waited about 2 hours for it to dry.  Then I glued the second peice right next to the bottom peice. They are pretty sturdy actually.  Primed and painted it to match (spray paint but of course!)
 I think it turned out to be a really cute and functional peice!  I might have to make another one just a BIT smaller to go on one of the shelves I display my turtle collection in, so you can see the turtles in the back!
