Family Room Pillows

    I’ve been on a pillow making kick in the family room for the last couple of weeks; after the open house this Christmas, I decided that the couch was a little too bare. I have added 5 new pillows since then, and I really like the way that they tie the colors of…

French Pig Sign

I have been a little absent in front of the scenes here on the blog, but behind the scenes lots of work has been going on, I have a whole new blog design that is only days away from being able to be put online (which I am super excited about) and I am working…

New Couch Pillows

Christmas Open House {part 1}

Our apartment building recently had a Christmas Open House, where 9 apartments in the building decorated for Christmas, and then opened their home to be toured by other members of the community; it was a really fun event, and it was really cool to see how different each of our homes are, even though we…

The Fireplace Decked Out For Christmas

 So Paul reminded me that I never posted pictures of the finished Christmas Stockings, so I decided I would quickly add a picture showing the whole fireplace area. If you remember this is the fireplace that I built for, So You Think You’re Crafty, and it runs off of gel fuel. (although, I have no…

Charley’s Nursery

I have about a million and one projects and events that I haven’t blogged about, so I thought I would at least start with the ones I have uploaded onto the computer! Today I am sharing baby Charley’s nursury (by the way, here is an updated picture of Charley at 3 months, isn’t he delish?) …
