Hi there! We are two months into 2018 and for the most part, I’m liking it. It has been a lot of time indoors, a lot of shoveling (thanks, Joe!), washing off germs, and much cozying up by the fireplace. As it happens every year, I’m anxious to leave winter behind and move onto spring.… Continue reading Jan + Feb 2018
Wallpaper is having a moment right now and I have recently embraced it in several ways. When we moved into our new house about a year and a half ago, it was gloriously empty and blank with light gray walls and white trim throughout. I’ve loved having such a bright and clean space, but I… Continue reading Wallpaper for the Win
My longtime crafting buddy (Cece) and I got around to doing an EASY and fun art project one rainy afternoon last week. This project is too heavy to put on the fridge, but can be displayed anywhere in our house! There’s plenty of different versions of this on Pinterest, but really all you need is clay… Continue reading No-ouch Cacti
Hi, all! We are inching closer to springtime and that’s what continues to inspire me to get out of bed and join the world every day. That and lots of fun upcoming events (like Cece’s dance recital this weekend!). Here are a few other phone-captured things we have been up to lately. I’ve mentioned this… Continue reading Inching closer to spring!
I am one of those people who finds true enjoyment in things like hand-writing thank you notes and addressing Christmas cards. Ever since grade school, I have loved inky pens, writing in cursive, and that satisfying feeling of dropping a stack of letters in a mailbox. It’s just another opportunity to feel fancy and add a… Continue reading Trying my hand at modern calligraphy!
I don’t know what got into me (probably too many pumpkin spice lattes), but I thought that a glitter art project would be a great idea and Cece was only too happy to go along with it. So while Rosie napped, Cece and I moved our art supplies to the backyard and began Project Glitter… Continue reading Glitter Leaf Garland
A couple days ago we got around to some Valentine’s Day projects. Cece had her first Valentine’s Day party at school and we both had fun assembling some foam-sticker cards for her class. Cece enjoys making cards for other people so much and she also loves sending things via snail mail. I hope that’s… Continue reading Valentine’s Day Craftiness
With all of the mermaid-loving that goes on in our home, maybe it seems like we don’t have the time of day for other mythical creatures. Not true. Cece and I also have a soft spot for fairies. We enjoy watching the Tinkerbell movies, reading fairy books, and playing with her collection of fairy wings and wands. Sometimes Cece asks me if… Continue reading Fairies Welcome
This week, one of my Pinterest pins came true! The process is depicted below and easily got done in one day. I feel that the part that took the most time was just dreaming up a color scheme between the pots and the flowers. We have a lot of projects going on around our place right… Continue reading Our tipsy planter!
