Pretty up a plain chalkboard

Hi friends! So a few weeks ago when I was picking up some materials for the “Home Sweet Home” signs I made for a realtor friend, I saw this 2×4 black chalkboard panel for only $9.99 at the Home Depot!  I don’t know why it says they are not sold in store and why they’re priced …

2.24.17 DIY Friday

Hi lovelies! I stumbled upon this picture how-to of pretty flower pom-poms that I made a couple years back and thought you’d might like it.  They were so easy to make and not your typical tissue paper pom-poms that you normally see.  I used them for a backdrop for my 31st birthday (it was our …

I can’t believe I’m having a niece (my first one)!  She will be here soon and we’re anxiously anticipating her arrival! Last weekend we had a lovely Jack & Jill baby shower in honor of her.  I had so much fun planning out all the details and hosting the event.  My sister didn’t want the …

Hey, hey, it’s DIY Friday! I want to share with you a project I made for a friend for her birthday that just passed.  I think with all the craziness that has been my life for the past few years, I’ve sort of lost touch with giving meaningful gifts to my dear friends.  I don’t …

Holiday Decor 2016

The holidays are just my favorite time of year.  The hustle and bustle, the excitement of gift giving, seeing the generosity of humans doing what they do best, showing kindness to each other.  I know there can be a lot of ugliness out in the world, but I choose to see the positive and DO …

Ready to continue this journey…
