    How to Make a Paint Swatch Calendar

    So we’ve only been at this blogging thing for a short amount of time, but we have both quickly learned that a lot of PLANNING goes into running a blog.

  • Engagement Resolution

    Engagement Resolution

    From what I make of wedding planning so far, organization is KEY! With so much to keep track of, I feel like I’ve been on information overload and my wedding to-do list already seems endless! Just like the famous idea of a New Year’s Resolution, I’ve decided to make an Engagement Resolution. This resolution has been created to combat any feelings

    How to Create a Mason Jar Organizer

    Does anyone else have an obsession with mason jars? I don’t know what it is about them…but they are just so freakin’ adorable. I suppose I imagine myself with a different life when I hold one.  I’m sitting on a porch, drinking sweet tea, and sitting in a rocking chair. Okay, enough day dreaming. Let’s

    Chevron Bookcase

    Sometimes an old piece of furniture seems like it’s so ugly or plain that it has no hope for a successful DIY make-over. Take this bookcase for example.   This bookshelf was a staple in my teeny-bopper bedroom. It held things that awkward pre-teen girls loved back then; like picture frames, Michael Jordan books and

    Anthropologie Inspired Zinc Letters

    So I have a love/hate relationship with Anthropologie. I adore all of the quirky and whimsical home decor they sell in their store. But, I’m not a big fan of their sky-high prices. So being the thrifty gal that I am…I typically browse Anthro for inspiration and try and recreate their gorgeous pieces right at

    A Wreath for St. Patrick’s Day

    Plain and Simple: I love wreaths but don’t always love the price tag that comes along with them. Even when you’re DIYing one… they can be expensive. Not okay on a rookie salary, especially when you want to change them with the calendar. That’s when I decided to try and make a wreath using materials I

    How to Make your Own Burlap Bubble Wreath

    I find that many new DIY recruits don’t exactly know where to start when it comes to kicking off their DIY career. If this is you, I recommend starting with a DIY wreath. Wreaths aren’t too hard, they don’t demand a ton of supplies, they have loads of potential, once you get the hang of them you can create one

    How to Organize Measuring Cups and Spoons

    Don’t judge a book by its cover

    Coffee table books and magazines make me smile, plain and simple. These treasures offer a win-win situation for any homeowners. They offer a pop of color to any boring coffee table plus they have the potential to tell a great story to your guests. Here’s a fun stack of coffee table books that does just this.        Don’t be fooled by the red/pink

      If you’re a reader of this blog, you’ve probably noticed that sometimes we like to get our wine on!Sometimes with dinner, sometimes for girl’s nights, and sometimes even while crafting (okay, definitely not for crafts that involve power tools. Ya gotta draw the line somewhere!) Now, I’m no Kathy Lee Gifford but give me
