Styling a Bookshelf

I love to decorate. I love having a place to display a little personality in my home, but I have kids soo…. Does this sentence even need to be finished? We live here. I mean LIVE here. They aren’t in school yet, we don’t have a play room. All the living and playing that a […]


A Jeweled Box

I was recently walking through the craft store and I spied these wood boxes. Geodes, quartz, stone are totally in right now. Anthropologie has beautiful geode hardware I’m swooning over. I also recently saw two of my favorite bloggers, The Handmade Home and I Heart Organizing, creating with these elements. I had received the Elmer’s […]


Summer To Do List

This spring we did a little dining room update. I decided I was tired of decorating around a mirror and even worse, photographing into a mirror. Since so much of what we do with this space revolves around decorating for holidays and parties, I knew I wanted to put something up that lent itself to […]


How To Reuse Party Decor

I love decorating for shin-digs. The problem is, I often find myself wondering what to do with it all when the party is over. We just recently celebrated Hudson’s first birthday. See what I did there? The robots that were garland are now specimen art. The tissue paper tassel garland is now hanging above the […]


Hudson’s First Birthday

This week/weekend has been so crazy packed that I couldn’t even fit into one post. Well, at least not one post anyone would read. Wednesday, the 16th Hudson turned 1! This is baby #3 for me and I swear that with each kid, time just keeps going faster. I don’t know how we got here […]


I Made A Pillow

There is a phrase lately that I have been a little bit obsessed with. Let them be little. Lately I feel like everything is about more. Kids start school younger, go longer, and there seems to be this push for them to know more. I’m all for learning, but right now I just want to […]


Simple Spring Feather Mantle

A couple sheets of paper and my Cricut|explore was all it took to bring a little spring to my my mantle. I used the Cricut|explore to cut feathers, letters and paper bows. The feathers were clipped to the twine for bunting, put behind a frame for art and clipped to the Instagram display. A super […]


Buying Our First Home

This post brought to you by BMO Harris Bank N.A. Member FDIC. All opinions are 100% mine. My husband and I bought our first and only home in the fall of 2007. We didn’t renew our apartment least and moved into my parent’s house that summer while we began the process of house hunting. We […]


Bathroom Updates, Organization & Printable

You don’t have to compromise on clean to be green. This weekend we tackled our bathroom. Remember a week before my scheduled c-section with baby #3 when we gutted the bathroom? We finished it just in time and there it sat. This weekend it got a good cleaning, some reorganization and some style, because let’s […]


Robot Nursery

I have given you glimpses of Hudson’s room– like this gallery wall. The completely talented husband made all the art and you can get the blast off printable here. Clearly, since baby number three’s arrival almost 10 months ago, I have been slacking. The vision I have for this room hasn’t been met. I think […]
