DIY Sea Salt Hairspray

By |June 27th, 2012|

One of the most amazing perks of my new job is that I’m often in the ocean.  I have to admit, the transition from stay-at-home mom to Naturalist Attendant for The Ritz-Carlton’s Eco-Adventure Center has been… well… SO MUCH FUN!!  

Other than getting paid to go on Eco-Adventures and teach people all about the sea, another added benefit to my work is that most days of the week I am sporting beach hair.  What exactly is beach hair, you ask?  It’s those luscious, wavy locks one gets after a day of paddling through the waves.  Used to be that the only way to get said locks was to go to the nearest pier and dunk your head into the ocean.

Plastic Spoon & Bottle Hummingbird Feeder

By |April 18th, 2012|

As I’ve perused the blogosphere over the past few months, I’ve been seriously inspired by all the imaginative, creative people that turn the old into something new and beautiful.  (Seriously, just visit my “Reinvented & Repurposed” Pinterest board  if you want an afternoon full of creative motivation.)

With Earth Day just around the corner, I thought I’d dig into my recycling bin and pull out something beautiful.  And maybe I can help save the planet in some small way, too.  =]

I-Spy Tube Toy

We have a new morning routine in the Wright household: “The Morning Art Kick Start”.  Yeah, I like to rhyme.  I’m corny like that.  In all honesty, I’m the queen of corn.  ^_^

Every morning from 7 to 10am, Maddy and I do all kinds of arts and crafts.  Not only is it fun for her, but it also provides some special mommy/daughter quality time.  I quite enjoy this time together, and (in my own not so humble opinion), it’s much better than plopping her in front of the television.

$153 Coral Knockoff Plates

By |July 17th, 2011|

My dining room table is constantly getting hit with everything other than dinner plates and silverware.  As a large flat area in a very small apartment space, the table has become a landing pad for bills, crafts, laundry, purses, toys, laptops, and anything else I can cram onto it’s pitifully cluttered surface.

My poor table needs a makeover.

Beachy Chic Side Table

By |June 18th, 2011|

Do you ever find yourself walking by a piece of furniture, only to turn back and stare when it squeals like a girlfriend who just got engaged softly calls out to you?  Well, that happens to me all the time.  Only the pieces that I’m notoriously attracted to are usually thousands of dollars in chic beachside boutiques.  Or historical family heirlooms (read: not for sale) that have been beaten to a beautifully weathered pulp.

I’m not satisfied with either of these options, which means I’ve got to get creative.

Que rolling up of sleeves and rubbing together of hands as I cackle evilly.  (I know, I’m weird.  I can’t help it.)
