When it comes to Valentine's Day, the crafting options are unlimited. Handmade cards, creative Valentine's boxes for school, cute 'love' decorations for the home, and adorable confections that are 'almost' too pretty to eat. There are so many fun things to make for Valentine's-- it's hard to fit it all in on February 14th! So this year, I decided to host a "Valentine's Crafty Party" for my girls.

Decorate without Adding Clutter + Pillow Giveaway

Although I am sad to see the holiday season come to an end, there is something wonderful about the emptiness of January. Removing decorations and taking down the lights, my home feels beautifully bare. I love the simplicity of the white winter light and the cleanliness of the new year.

It seems there is a fine line between having enough decor to keep things interesting and over-decorating to the point of clutter. January is the best time to reevaluate what items are adding dimension to your style and what things are simply taking up space.


With your home freshly 'undecorated' after the holidays, consider these three ideas for decorating without adding clutter.

5 Ways to Wear Sequin Pants

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! Our family spent lots of time celebrating, relaxing, and playing. And now we are on to New Year's Eve! One of my favorite things about the holidays is dressing up. I wore these black sequin pants for Christmas Eve. (I absolutely love these pants.) The front is sequined and the back is a stretchy spandex legging. Since the pants are so fancy-- I paired them with a simple tunic. After posting the picture on Instagram, I had lots of inquiries about the pants. So I thought it would be fun to do a post about sequin pants!

Our sitting area has gotten a make-over over the past month. (You can read about it here.) In my recent search for chairs, I found out that my home decor style is now considered "transitional". Not traditional, not modern. But somewhere in the middle. Which describes most things about me. So with that said, here is a peek at some of the decor changes I have made recently.

--------------------
It's that time of the year. The time when you reflect about your home and your plans for the coming year. For some- that may mean you are thinking about home improvement projects (we just did that with lots of paint!) And for others, it means buying a new home. The market in our DFW area is so strong right now. I have several friends who are actively looking, keeping their eyes open and (their homes ready) in case they find that perfect property. If you are one of those people, I know how you feel! This is our third home and I have learned so much about the home buying process. So keep reading-- because today I am sharing my top five tips of What "Not to Do" when House Hunting.
