My Dream Home Binder : Pretty Printables

My Dream Home

I had already planned this post for today's Pretty Printables, so I'm sticking with it, but it is ironic to me now. Last night a tornado blew through my hometown and destroyed a large number of homes and buildings. Thankfully so far it appears to not have harmed anyone physically, but the wake of ... read this

Once again, the lovely ladies at Hometalk were super kind and asked me to curate a board of my favorite posts. Previously, they asked me to cultivate a board of my favorite Kid's Decor Room Ideas after I posted my Superhero Table Makeover.  There were plenty of awesome posts to peruse in this ... read this

How to Make Wine Charms

How to Make Wine Charms

Anyone reading this blog for longer than a minute will figure out that I am a girl who enjoys her vino. Red, white, bubbly, and even the rare occasion of pink; doesn't matter! As long as it is delicious, I'm in. So how ridiculous is it that a connoisseur such as myself is lacking in the simplest of ... read this

Curbside to Cribside: Nursery Ideas for Thrift Finds

nursery ideas

Earlier, I shared with you my DIY Nursery Art, and a glimpse at the color scheme I chose for baby boy #2.  Today I'm sharing another glimpse into H's nursery, which I honestly I have to say is my most favorite room of the house. I never did anything this involved for J's room, but then we were ... read this

Movie Monday: 7 Awesome Movie Soundtracks

7 Awesome Movie Soundtracks

Have you ever fallen in love with a song? Ok, forget that, a whole soundtrack? I know I can't be the only crazy wistful soul who has recreated a movie scene in my living room to a soundtrack that spoke to me, {You know who you are.} I like to think we all play the soundtrack to our lives in our ... read this

Easy DIY Nursery Art

DIY Nursery Art

Happy Sunday evening to you all! I hate technology sometimes. I already wrote this post. I wrote it twice and failed to save it. {High school horrors revisited.} Now I get to write it again, though likely not quite as eloquently. I wanted to share with you a quick and easy way of making your own ... read this

Handprint Bouquet and Pretty Gifts from #Soufeel

Handprint bouquet

I am not always the greatest of daughters. My mother is a part time nanny for us and immensely helpful to us on a daily basis with our two boys. She is forever helping around the house, with the boys, the lawn, whatever. I think sometimes she's catching up for the years we lived in Vegas. However, ... read this

Girls Night Wine Glass Craft


A long time ago, in one of my first ever blog posts, I showed how I had hand-painted a wine glass as a 30th birthday present for my best friend. She was being surprised with a trip to Las Vegas (where we lived at the time) to visit us and celebrate the milestone event. I'd never painted a wine glass ... read this

Movie Monday: 7 Motivational Movie Quotes

Motivational Movie Quotes

Sometimes, Mondays are the hardest days, and other times I'm actually eager for them. Something about Mondays makes me feel like I get a "do over", a chance to be better than I was the week before. Better at my health, my organization, my mothering, whatever. I like the "fresh start" ... read this

Gallery Wall Art Ideas: Turn Clearance into Custom

Gallery Wall Art Ideas

  I am one of those people. You know, the kind that browses the clearance section of any store, wondering what frugal finds I will discover that I can put to alternative use. I'd say I'm running a 60% average on what decor in my home is actually still in its original design. However, ... read this

Pretty Printables: Mother’s Day Free Printable

Pretty Printables

I'm going to get this post out by the skin of my teeth! My original plan in my original post was to host Pretty Printables every week. Man, do I know how to aim high!  Sorry, my loves, but it just ain't gonna happen. A full-time job, motherhood, and Birthday Blocks, there's just no way I can pull ... read this

Create a Playroom in an Unfinished Basement

Unfinished basement ideas

Obviously, the ultimate goal of a new home is to have it all in pretty/sparkly/brand-spankin'-new condition, with as many bells and whistles as your little heart desires (or wallet can afford). We have the same dream for our home. We've already batted around about a dozen different unfinished ... read this

How to Make DIY Picture Ledges

DIY Picture Ledges

So, I'm not sure if you are new here, or a longtime reader...but I don't build things. I'm crafty, yes, but not when it comes to using drills or screws or wood, outside of a basic paint job upcycle. It is a skill I've been meaning to learn, but up until now, nope. So even though this was a simple ... read this
