Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

Upcycled Play Kitchen from Nightstand

Coming up with the perfect birthday present for C1 has been quite the task. I wanted to make her something cool, but I didn't want to have it be something that she would look at and then disregard.

I came up with the idea (not an original idea I first spied upcyled nightstand kitchens HERE on homemade by Jill) of making a play kitchen out of a nightstand. Well I bought the nightstand in June or July for $5.00 and have been working feverishly on creating the perfect play kitchen since then. Okay I will be honest I just really started two weeks ago.

We used plexi glass for the front. I could just see the kids rough-housing and the glass breaking everywhere.
