New Fall Wreath

125

I finished up another wreath this week. I feel like it's still too early to adorn my door with my Candy Corn Wreath. I kind of made my own interpretation of a yarn wreath I found on Home Stories A2Z and I loved it. I think mine turned out really pretty, although I didn't care for the yarn wrapping process around the wreath. I felt like it took a longer time than I expected and it was hard to get it all to cover evenly and uniformly. I'm kind of a perfectionist though, so that's another issue--this wreath wasn't as "perfect" as I'd like. Whatever. I got over it. I love how it turned out. Not too bad, huh??? It makes me feel all fall-like … [Read more...]

Craft Room Progress: Filing Cabinets Makeover

083

I haven't posted about my craft room in quite awhile. If you're new to my site, you haven't missed too much. Basically, my craft room started out like this: BEFORE  A glorified storage room in the basement full of Christmas stuff, workout stuff, and baby stuff.  That, my friends, is a desk...a buried desk. So there's the BEFORE. And here's the CURRENT  (because AFTER just wouldn't be appropriate yet):  Made some of my pennants and got them hung up  Repainted the desk BRIGHT white, spray painted, and bunted the filing cabinets. Started work on stenciling the top of the desk--courtesy of Martha Stewart's new line. So there's the … [Read more...]

Our Massachusetts Trip

026

Notice any new changes to my blog?! Well, I hope so! It's completely different now and I adore it. A very special thanks and shot out to Kendra at Key Lime Designs. Kendra lives in Hawaii (so jealous) and she re-did my blog and dealt with all my stupid requests with such kindness. And the best thing about Kendra??? She did it FAST! Within 10 days of contacting her, I had a whole new blog. If you need a blog redesign, I highly suggest you try Kendra out. In the meantime, I obviously have some updating to do and I just got my computer back today--for the second time in repair (and the problem is not fixed), so I have a lot of catching up to … [Read more...]

"AGAIN!"

027

I've been a bad blogger lately...I've just been so busy! We're about to go on a trip to MA for a wedding, so I'm blogging my little hiney off to get posts out for DimplePrints and for Someday Crafts (who is going to let me guest post next week!) before I leave. I have a SUPER funny story to tell you before I go though!Andrew has really taken to the ABC song and sings it constantly. We have a CD in the car that has lots of nursery rhymes and songs on it--the ABC's being one of them. Just this week, he actually started singing along in his little high pitched voice and mumbles. If that wasn't adorable enough, he wants it to be repeated … [Read more...]

Cane Chair Project

201775013_Nj93FRyX_c

I told you about how I bought this Cane Chair on Craigslist the other day for $45. I've been seeking fabrics to recover the chair with and I finally found EXACTLY what I need from Spoonflower. I'm SO excited to debut the fabric I picked out for my chair!!  Here's the current state of the ugly chair in all it's poop brown glory. See the straw piping along the bottom of the chair? Consider that gone when I get my hands on this chair. Not pretty. Forgive me, I'm just NOT a brown fan. This chair has a MAJOR makeover in it's near future, which involves a bright white coat of paint, some light blue antiquing on the arms and legs, and some of this … [Read more...]

SO Many Projects, so little time

006

THIS House of Hepworth's post got me thinking about my own list of to-do projects that have started, but never finished. I'm starting to feel like a mini-hoarder (even though I despise clutter) because of my inability to start any of the crafts I finish. Something else always seems to take priority, something else needs to be done and then I forget about my sweet little project and it sits for months on end.  My Rosette Bookpage Wreath? Yeah, that sucker took MONTHS to finish. Mostly because I hated it, but I had already invested so much time into it that I couldn't let it go without finishing. So what did I do to fix my issue?Well, I took in … [Read more...]

My Un-Published Great Ideas Guest Post–DIY makeovers

0121

So I got super lucky and was one of ten folks chosen to be considered for the Tatertots and Jello Virtual Assistant position. I was SO nervous/excited and Jen asked that I write up a weekend wrap up post as a sample of my writing skills. She gave me some previous posts she had done and I did my best to keep my style in line with hers. In the end, I think I wrote a really cute post, but another applicant was chosen. I'm sure there were tons of talented ladies to consider. So even though I didn't get the job, I thought I'd share my carefully thought out post so my efforts weren't for nothing at all. So this is what I wrote up to cover Jen's … [Read more...]

Candy Corn Wreath

Labor+Day+117

If you haven't been keeping up lately (and why not, I may add haha), I'm getting ready for Andrew's 2nd birthday party that I'm using a candy corn theme for. I love candy corns and I've had a lot of fun already finding food and decor for his party. One of my absolute favorite crafts to make though are wreaths. I've made a bunch of them now and I swear (not to pat my own back) they each get a little better each time. Even my husband told me how much he liked my work tonight, which is unheard of. So here's my attempt at a cute candy corn wreath for my son's party and also for fall decor/Halloween decor. What you need:18" grapevine wreath … [Read more...]
