Freebie FriYAY – Mercies Are New

It’s been awhile since I shared a #Freebie FriYAY with you all so I wanted to pop in with this one before I start the weekend. (sorry for the bad cell photo-this is the darkest corner of our house, apparently.) This week has been one of the best I can remember in a long time. […]

A Deal on Deck Chairs

It’s springtime, which means the temperatures are just about perfect for grilling and spending time outside, whether we’re on the deck, or down in the yard. So, that means it’s time to pull out the patio furniture so we have some place to sit and eat. Or sit and read. Or sit and work. Basically, a […]

A Shiny Spot for Sweets

It’s raining again and I just got Will down for a late nap. (Finally!) So I wanted to take a few minutes to share a little project I worked on awhile back. Did you see it? No, it’s not fixing the crooked photos in that gallery. But thanks for pointing that out because it’s all […]

Feebie FriYAY – Loved & Lovely

Today’s #FreebieFriYAY is a reminder I need to hear daily. Or hourly.  Because I often don’t feel loved. Or lovely. Motherhood isn’t exactly the most glamorous job out there. I mean, unless you think yoga pants covered in baby drool and smeared vegetable puree, stained nursing tanks, old stretched out t-shirts, and three-day old hair […]

Bedroom Style Shopping with Kirkland’s

A few weeks ago, Kirkland’s reached out to us to see if we wanted to do some style “window shopping.” Because I like to shop, and because I’ve been feeling totally stuck on finishing off our master bedroom, I was excited to spend a few minutes browsing their website for ideas. I wanted something that […]

Easy Easter Decor

Over the weekend, I took a few minutes to add some Easter decor around the house. And when I say a few minutes, I mean it. We have so much going on right now that decorating for Easter wasn’t a big priority. Still, it’s nice to add a bit of festiveness, especially because we’re going […]

Hello there, Spring!

It’s not #FreebieFriYAY, but I wanted to go ahead and share a sweet little print I made for my spring clipboard collection. And yes, technically, I missed the first day of spring, but I think the fact that it snowed here on Sunday morning (the first day of spring) and today it’s 65 degrees and […]

A Fresh (Fake) Tulip “Wreath” for Spring

I always get the urge to freshen up our decor for springtime. Anyone else? So, in honor of the first day of spring coming up next week, I spent a little bit of time over the weekend making a new “wreath” for the front door. To be honest, it’s not a wreath at all. And […]

Got Beef? A Giant Butcher Chart Art Print

First, let me say that I realize with this project we’ve officially placed ourselves firmly in the “NOT vegetarian” category. But, to be honest, we were pretty far in that category to begin with. I think I’ve served Wyatt a total of 2 recipes ever that he has said he doesn’t mind the fact that […]

A Few New Plates

If you’re a very, very observant reader, you would have noticed a slight update in my last post about our new potted plants. I’ll show you again: Catch it? How about now?    Good eye! I updated the plate wall a little bit. (Of course, the title of this post should have given you a pretty […]

Short And Sweet – A Glimpse at Our Valentine’s Day Decor

Just stopping in to share a few quick photos of our Valentine’s mantle decor. I have to say that switching out the chalkboard and such is something I enjoy doing, even if I don’t have much time for other projects these days. This is what it looked like before. I bet you can’t guess why […]

DIY Honeycomb Shelves

Be sure to follow all our other projects, here! We hope you enjoy our little corner of Blog Land and stop to look around a few other pages, like our DIY Foam Cooler Ottoman, Ruler Growth Chart, our Kitchen Renovation, and my free printables. Enough with the sneak peeks, it’s time to show you our awesome new […]

We’ve Been Busy Bees…

That was a silly pun, and a clue in good fun. And that was a silly rhyme. All that silliness just to share ONE LAST sneak peek of a project I’m super excited to share with you all later this week. My instagram has been full of sneak peeks lately, so if you missed them, go […]

Freebie FriYAY – Do Stuff Today

Today marks the first of a fun series I’ve been wanting to start for awhile – Freebie FriYAY! In non-excited “girl speak,” that means you get something free on Fridays. Woot woot! (Sorry, I relapsed into excited girl speak again. Oops. #SorryNotSorry? Ok, enough with the silliness and on to the details! I’m not a […]

New Clipboard Prints for Winter

Last week I shared our simple winter mantle with the new chalkboard quote. (If you missed it, click here.) Today, I’m FINALLY getting around to sharing the prints I picked for the clipboard wall this month. I don’t switch these out every month, but I try to do it every now and then, just for […]

How We Did on Our 2015 Goals

It’s time to go through our list of goals for last year and take a final inventory of how well we did. I’m pretty pleased, overall, and excited to start on some new things in 2016! 1. Develop a weekly cleaning routine. I have a scheduled set, but I usually miss at least one day […]

EASY Winter Wall Hanging

Even though the kitchen is finally done (woohoo!—and thank goodness!), the wall over the big table has been totally bare and boring for over a year now. I knew I wanted something large, rather than a lot of smaller things, mainly because of the plate wall in the corner. I didn’t want whatever I chose […]

Thanksgiving Printable Round Up

Nothing like the day before a holiday for some last minute decorating, huh? Wyatt and I both came down with a cold early this week and we’re doing our best to rest up for a holiday weekend, but I wanted to take a quick minute and share the remaining two printables I’m using on my […]

FREE–FRIENDS Trifle Thanksgiving Printable

Because it’s soon going to be Thanksgiving, and because we’re friends, and because Wyatt and I are rewatching all the FRIENDS Thanksgiving episodes in preparation for this wonderful holiday, I created the following Thanksgiving printable for you all: In case you’re in need of a laugh, or haven’t seen this episode (the horror!), here’s the […]

Let There Be Light! (& Celebrations!)

Why are we celebrating you ask? Because THE KITCHEN IS DONE! Sure, we have some decorating and cabinet organization to do, but after Sunday’s light hanging progress, the remodeling is officially D.O.N.E. Hallelujah, right? It only took us 18 months, give or take. That’s not that long is it? Ha! It’s a lot longer than I […]

Up! Up! And Away! – DIY Nursery Mobile

A post about the nursery mobile! Super late, but it still turned out super sweet and it’s worth sharing with you all. I knew I wanted a cloud mobile because I liked the idea of looking up and dreaming about the sky, so I pinned a bunch for inspiration. I found the ones with balloons even […]

Don’t Forget About The Fiverr Freebies

UPDATE: The promotion for a free gig is over, but you can still purchase regularly, here.  This post is sponsored by Fiverr in partnership with Kasai Media. All opinions are my own.  Remember when I talked about starting the #FiverrHustle business challenge, here? Well, I’m back with an update: it’s time to order your freebies! “But […]

How to Reupholster Dining Room Chairs

The seats are easy, comparatively speaking. I went over those steps, here. The back is where we found things to get tricky, so I’m going to attempt to break down what we did. The first step is to make sure your fabric, foam, and support strips are cut and arranged. Then, start stapling one layer […]

Weekend Rewind: Finally Fall Edition

Am I the only one who seems to be stuck in summer? I keep writing August as the month every time I have to write the date on something. I’m not sure why…I just can’t believe we’re halfway through October, maybe. Or maybe I feel like our life sort of stopped when Will was born […]

The Dining Room Chairs Are Done—Finally!

Because it’s been a week since I teased about our dining room chairs being done and I still don’t have our last DIY post on that ready (Will and I have been sick all week so not much has been accomplished (other than lots of snuggling and sniffling, and some crying on his part), I […]

Sweet Seats – ReDoing Our Dining Room Chairs

Our dining table chairs are finished! We already discussed the process of fixing up and painting the chairs, in this post, so you can go there to see all the steps up to this point. We finally got to Joann’s to buy fabric and we ended up going with a single option in a neutral color, […]

How We Like It Now: Paint and Painting Edition

Painting stuff is on my mind (CHAIRS!), and since it’s been awhile since we’ve talked about any of this stuff, I thought I’d share a few quick updates on some other items we’ve painted, or painted with, and let you know how we like them now that they’re out of project mode and into the […]

Three Cheers for Painted Chairs!

You guys, I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to say WE PAINTED THE CHAIRS! Cue the parades and confetti, because it has been a LOOOONG time coming, right? So, now I’m going to write 1000 words on the process. Yay….? To back up, we’ve been talking about fixing up these […]
