I’m Guest Posting Today…..

Today I am guest posting over at Welcome to the Mouse House, for her Handcrafted Holidays series, I would love it if you would pop on over and check out my project! The posting totally has the world’s worst pictures (sorry Hayley!) BUT it also has a really awesome pleating technique, that is worth checking…

A Quick Spot of Rug Repair

While in the US I picked up a lovely runner from Target, only to get it here to Korea and realize that I hadn’t noticed a bald spot on one corner (and there are no Targets here for me to run into and exchange it!) So I decided that I would need to repair the…

We’re in the US

We’re currently in the US on vacation, visiting family, and seeing our sweet baby nephew Charley for the first time! He is about 20 days old now, and the most beautiful and good natured baby. I am loving getting to play aunt to my sweet sister’s baby boy, he is so delicious, and Sarah is…

Pocket Watch Wall Clock {tutorial tuesday}

Sorry about the cellphone pictures for this tutorial, but lately if it’s not on my phone, it’s not happening! The Summer has been amazing so far, so I haven’t been posting much, but have been soaking up time with my kiddos! (we are making quilts this week) This morning they are at Korean Summer School…

Home is Where…..

I’ve been working on a new project today…… The plaque is from Hobby Lobby (Yay! for them shipping APO) and I first painted it black, and then hand painted the white lettering. Next I sanded it back a little, and then sealed the whole thing with a clear poly. This is only part 1 of…

Breaks Etc…….

So I know I’ve been missing, but I haven’t been lazing about, just taking a break from blogging for a bit (not actually on purpose, I’ve just been super busy and taking pictures and editing them, then writing a post just wasn’t making the cut.)  We got back from China, and the kids went back…

Patio Rug

Anyone on my Instagram will have already seen these, but I thought I would share progress over here, These pictures are of our new patio rug!  We bought super realistic Astro Turf from the flower market ($125 worth) and used it to make a rug! The rug is weatherproof, has drainage holes, and is designed…
