Summer giveaway: $650 PayPal cash…

Hey friends!  I am on the road this week enjoying an amazing vacation with my little family. We've already hit Charleston, SC and Cumberland Island, GA and we're heading to Florida now.

Since I am enjoying a wonderful vacation, I figured it was a great time for a giveaway!  I have joined with some fantastic bloggers to give away $650 PayPal … [Read More...]

Make a statement with GIANT subway art…

I’ve gotten quite a few questions recently about the GIANT subway art in our family room.  I realized that I never explained how I made it even though it has shown up in lots of pictures around here.

You catch more flies with honey than vinegar. A trouble shared is a trouble halved.  Laughter is the best medicine. A grudge is a … [Read More...]

You may recall that I was never really into tie dye in the past.  So this was my very first attempt ever.  And I had convinced myself that I was going to beautifully recreate this West Elm pillow I found on Pinterest.  This … [Read More...]

Turn a Family Photo into One of a Kind Art…

Today I am super excited to be sharing how I turned one of my favorite family photos into this gorgeous piece of art.   I am so in love with this project – I basically can’t help smiling every time I look at it.  I love the much needed pop of color it gives that wall. I love the designer look.  But most of all, I love that it perfectly captures a beautiful moment in our family’s history. I am a new contributor for the awesome site, Classy Clutter, and I am sharing all the … [Read More...]

30+ Amazing Patriotic Projects That Look Great All…

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!! As you may know, I joined up with more than 30 inspiring bloggers to take on the challenge of creating a patriotic project without using the traditional red, white and blue color scheme. The projects shared have been so creative, I wanted to make sure you got a chance to see them all. My favorite part is that most of these really would work any time of year – not just Independence Day. I hope you feel inspired as you check them out! Oh, and you can still enter to win … [Read More...]
