Since we have decided to pull up the carpet on the stairs, I’ve been on the hunt for good ideas. We’ve bought white flooring paint, but there are so many more fun projects out there. I don’t know that I want anything elaborate. It’s taken me 10 years to make this decision — I don’t […]
I’m constantly saving ideas for kid’s rooms because #1 – I still haven’t finished the nursery (blogger fail!) and #2 – I know I’ll get the chance to decorate many a kid’s room in my day (fingers crossed). Here are some favorite diy decoration ideas I’ve come across lately. The magnetic wall is a must!
Usually I say that I’m going to try some of these projects out but I can’t guarantee anything for the next 17 days since I’ll be watching the Olympics and that is my one and only goal. I guess I’ll bookmark them to do when I’m having withdrawals after they’re over.
I’ve just caught wind of the 2012 Handmade Olympics! What fun!! But we’ve only got 3 more days to cast our votes for your favorite handmade projects and blogs. These handmade Olympic games are held over at the The Rik Rak Shop, a great place to find cool handmade ideas (plus I love rik-rak!) With […]
I spend a lot of time in my kitchen — breakfast, lunch, dinner, supervising numerous snacks — so it doesn’t take long for the look to get stale. Unfortunately, everything in there is just so big that I’m kinda stuck with it. We don’t have much wall space to simply update decor. And, we won’t […]
New series time! I’m going to start highlighting some of my favorite blogs that fit a specific genre and hope that you find some new happy reads along the way. While I of course could feature really big sites like Design Sponge in nearly every post of this series, the blogs I’m choosing to highlight […]
We didn’t get our garden going last year at all, and my grocery budget felt it all summer! After the initial investment when we first moved into our home, it has kept our expenses down while still allowing our family to eat fresh, healthy foods. This year, we’re tackling a few extra projects that will […]
This weekend we spent time outside planting flowers and fixing up our outdoor spaces for Spring. Now it’s time to add some spring decor inside! And if your first thought is, pastel will never fly with the rest of my family, there are beautiful options for even the most minimalist & masculine home. Have you […]
Every week when I’m pulling together this series I wonder what genius the Internet will deliver and I’m never disappointed. This week I’m pretty certain I need to try out the leather belt hung clock and the people hanging onto the balloons cracked me up. Take a peek.
I’ve been clipping coupons, printing coupons, and saving coupons to my mobile phone for a total of 15 years now. In that time, I’ve gone through a lot of organizational systems. I’ve used coupon envelopes, coupon files, and my coupon binder. It goes in waves, based on my lifestyle, moods, and the current fads. And, […]
I hate to pick favorites but by far my favorite project from this week’s round-up is the fridge ice dispenser turned into a candy dispenser with no fancy mechanics needed. I kid you not. Fill mine with Jr Mints and peanut butter M&Ms please. What’s your favorite this week?
