I think this is the best decorating I have done in my entire house! Excuse the over-excitement. I cannot explain it, but our new bedroom gallery wall makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. It is so personal and so impactful. And, it was free!
Every room has a focal wall. For the bedroom that [...]
My boys cannot wait to start living a pirate’s life in their new playroom. Only if mommy had more time to pull it all together…along with the rest of the basement. I am working hard at being patient, knowing if I take my time on all these projects I will end up with a space [...]
Tuesday was my sons first day of school (sniffle, sniffle). There he was with a backpack practically bigger than him. I actually held it together for the first drop off. It helped he was so excited, albeit a little shy. Honestly, I think I was actually excited the day was finally here, too. I felt [...]
The new playroom space in the basement has finally given me the opportunity to do something fun and whimsical. Yes, I am doing a theme room. No, it won’t be cheesy.
Instead of randomly buying stuff to fill this room, and thanks to my Home Spending Hiatus, I took the last few evenings [...]
We went in for gelato and I came out inspired. I loved the atmosphere of Paciugo.
My baby is 5! Unlike all of his other birthdays, I did not plan a birthday party this year. We were visiting family in Dallas over his birthday. With the late summer vacation and the pending start of kindergarten, I decided against adding any stress to this time of year with party [...]
To go along with my recent kitchen drawer reorganization, I started looking for other kitchen inefficiencies. My oldest can get his own water at the fridge and set the table, yet he couldn’t reach any of the kids cups or plates. Meanwhile, in the corner of the [...]
We are 100% focused on back to school readiness. Or should I say starting school readiness? My oldest will be starting full day kindergarten on September 4th. I am so excited for him and so nervous, too. I know he will do great. It is me that is nervous about the unknown, about being unprepared, [...]
I found this 30 x 50 red zig zag rug at Home Goods for only $14.99. I knew it would look great in my son’s super hero bedroom. Red is becoming a prominent accent color in the room. Ever since I got his brother the sheep skin rug [...]
I made a cute little tweak to the nursery this weekend.
I saw two of these convex mirrors at Home Goods, but passed them up. They had an antique white finish and were priced at $29.99 each. That is more than I would normally consider paying for a decor item that I [...]
My youngest is growing up way too fast. A few months ago when he turned two, we converted his crib to a toddler bed. We swapped out the full rail on one side for the toddler rail. This is the same Room & Board crib my hubby hunted down for me at the outlet when [...]
This project was one of the best I have done in a while. It is nothing remarkable, but it was free, quick, and my 4 year old was able to do it with me. It is so great whenever you can include a child in decorating their own space…they love that!
With loads of cute washi tapes and paper tapes, it is easy to amass a collection quickly. I found a bunch of cute, inexpensive paper tapes at Target to kickstart my collection. I even found some tape for the kids from the Kid Made Modern Collection. These tapes are a lot more paper-like and don’t [...]
My son, almost 5 years old, declared one weekend that we were going to make a bird feeder. He takes after his mommy and always has a project brewing. I was onboard, but quickly had visions of cutting wood and nailing pieces together with a 4 year old. It sounded a bit frustrating, for both [...]
Now that we are all starting to enjoy the sun again, I thought I would share a solar-inspired art project. I wanted to try melted crayon art with my son, but wasn’t really interested in the ever-popular rainbow of melted crayons. Instead we decided to make a small art piece for his room with broken [...]
