DIY Candle Holder

DIY Candle Holder

Here comes another one of those DIY's that is a result of me not being able to find exactly what I want in a store 🙂 Turned candle holders are hard to find, and tall turned candle holders, even harder. These little cuties are SO easy to make, I think I had them put together [...]

Whip Cream Dyed Easter Eggs

We attempted to take Landon for photos with the Easter Bunny today. It wasn't very successful. Landon was terrified! Like, whites of his eyes, fists clenched around his dad's arms, high pitched scream, terrified. He wanted absolutely nothing to do with that bunny 🙂 I can't blame him though, those Easter bunny costumes are scary!! [...]

Holiday Cards

Let's be clear...I am by NO MEANS a johnny-on-the-spot, efficiently organized, if-you're-on-time-you're-late person...AT ALL! I mean, Christmas is 7 days away and I did the bulk of my gift shopping online last night. I'm a last minute, rushing around like a chicken with my head cut off, study 1 hour before a test kind of [...]

Holiday Wood Sign

So many cute holiday signs out there this year. I saw so many different versions, I couldn't decide which one to buy. Finally, I saw one that I liked, it was on the Instagram account of a local boutique that I follow. The problem, the actual boutique is not very close to where I live [...]

DIY Baby Gate

Ok...let's get something out of the way. November kicked my butt. Big time. I took this break from blogging to get my stuff together, get organized, be more consistent. And, October was great! I posted consistently, I was happy with what I was posting. Then, November happened. Halloween (ok, that's October, but still) and DIY [...]

DIY Toy Box

DIY Toy Box

I think I officially have a toddler. I mean, when I spend the entire day either chasing the little munchkin or saying "No, Landon...no, no, no....Landon, that's not to play with" that equals toddler, right?!?! When he first learned what the word "no" meant, he would usually stop whatever behavior I was saying no to. [...]

DIY Chalkboard Sign

DIY Chalkboard Sign

Confession...I love chalkboards. Or, I love creating cute little works of art on chalkboards. Weird, I know. I have created some fun chalkboard signs for my mom's business and thought it was time I have one in my home. I created a new photo gallery wall in our living room and took down the old [...]

DIY Herb Garden

DIY Herb Garden

I've wanted to have a vegetable garden for quite some time now. Lack of time is what stopped me before. Now that I have some (little) time on my hands, I thought this might be a good time to give it a shot. I waited a bit it to long though to work out all the [...]

DIY Floating Shelves

DIY Floating Shelves

I am so excited to FINALLY share this project with you all! I have been working on it for what feels like forever. Wait...you mean...having a baby will drastically change the amount of time in the day you have to accomplish things?!?! Case in point, I've been trying to write this blog post for 3 [...]

DIY Blanket Ladder

DIY Blanket Ladder

Can we talk about the LIFE-CHANGING discovery I made a couple weeks ago. It was an average night, we had just eaten dinner and were sitting on the couch when the inevitable conversation came up..."Did you get anything for dessert?" my husband asks... I hadn't...fail. Me: "No, but there is still vanilla ice cream in [...]

DIY Greenery Crown

DIY Greenery Crown

We had our maternity photos done 2 weeks ago and I am beyond thrilled with how they turned out! Of course, they were shot by my good friend, Janine, of Janine Soltman Photography, and we shot them at Kruger's Farm on Sauvie Island. I will do a full post of all the gorgeous photos soon, [...]

DIY Spa Bathtub Tray

DIY Spa Bathtub Tray

I've been wanting to do this project for a while. Especially because I've been spending so much more time in the bathtub these last few months. I wanted the spa-like relaxation but, truth be told, I also wanted a place to set my laptop so I could get some blog work done while I'm unwinding. [...]

DIY Vintage Scoreboard

DIY Vintage Scoreboard

Nesting has officially set in...I'm feeling to pressure of the timeline and that this little munchkin is only 14 weeks away. Man...when I write it down like that, it seems even closer! I really haven't done much in the nursery yet other than getting the crib, a light fixture (which is currently sitting on the [...]

DIY Flower Basket Stand

DIY Flower Basket Stand

Happy belated Mother's Day to all the amazing, hard-working mamas out there! I hope you all enjoyed a day of relaxation, pampering and spending quality time with your kiddos. I started this project as something completely different...I was searching for DIY floor lamp ideas and came across a flower pot stand idea on Pinterest instead. My goal [...]

DIY T.V. Stand

DIY T.V. Stand

I'm back!!! It has been SO long since I've posted! I'm so happy to be back and have all sorts of great content planned for the next few weeks. Since I've been gone, hubby and I went to Hawaii on a little getaway. The trip was absolutely INCREDIBLE and we fell in love with the [...]
