This weekend we have done nothing but trying to start and finish up some household projects. And I must add, we’ve been quite productive! I left my hubby feeling very empowered yesterday after he finished putting together my picture ledges for the living room (pictures and instructions to come). I also finished up the worst project I have ever started…the bane of my existence…my Rosette Bookpage Wreath. This wreath turned out lovely, but I seriously hated every minute of it. It was one of those projects that I started thinking how much I would love it, but then after hours… Read More
8/9/11 UPDATE: Check out the FINISHED Smile Canvas artwork HERE at the bottom. Also…some new progress on the craft room/mom cave. When my son was born, Uncle Kracker’s, “Smile”, had just come out and I loved the lyrics to it. The song really summed up how my little boy made me feel and to this day I get a little teary eyed when I hear the song. So the other day, when I was brainstorming ideas and color combinations for my craft room (see below for what I’m starting out with), I thought up a really fun way to make… Read More
I have long mentioned that my biggest problem with decorating my house is that I cannot make any choices on what I want. I think and think and think, but never commit. Then when I finally do commit, I second guess myself and wish I would have gone with a different option. This can make decorating very hard because inevitably, I never get my house to where I want it due to my indecisiveness. For example, I’ve been long searching for ideas for a wreath to go in our Master Bathroom. I love burlap and lace together, so I finally… Read More
Just a quick note for tonight…I procured a new sponsor and giveaway over at DimplePrints a few weeks ago and just started reading her blog. She made this cute Holy Week printable that was so true… I don’t have any good place to use it except for here, but it definitely sums up how I feel every day after I tuck my son into bed at night. “Seriously God, WOW. You did that for me?” Tonight he wouldn’t go to sleep and when I walked in the second time to calm him down for bed, he reached his arms up… Read More
I saw this great idea from Living with Lindsay a few months ago and sent it off to my dad for assistance. Being the perfectionist my dad is, he looked over how she originally did it and helped me make a few modifications to hopefully make it even better. Let’s see how it went, shall we?? We started with our bed being headboard-less. When we purchased our furniture a few months ago, the furniture did have a matching headboard, but I wasn’t in love with it and I especially did not like the footboard that was on it. So I… Read More
So a few weeks ago I saw this picture on Polka Dot Market’s Facebook page. This wreath is so cute and really caught my eye and the woman who made it did an excellent tutorial on how she did it. So I decided to give it a shot and make my own. If you haven’t noticed lately, I’m totally getting into crafts, cooking, baking, etc. a bit more. If only I was better at it! With time, hopefully I can be as creative as some of these women! So here’s what I did. You need the following: Ribbon (I bought… Read More
**Sigh of Relief**– party planning is done. I loved it though, I really did. Anyways, Andrew’s Texas party had a baseball theme. I know, shocking, right? The DeHart’s had a BASEBALL theme? 🙂 Well, the whole party went off without a hitch. I mean, it went great. We had almost everyone we invited there, so we got to see tons of family, friends, and Andrew got to meet a lot of new faces. So let me show you how it went…. I ordered these invitations from a vendor on Ebay. They looked like little ticket with the Row and the… Read More
