Lil Pumpkin Party- When my Maisy turned two in October, we celebrated with a big party on at our local pumpkin patch. Check out the post for details on how to create your own invites, pumpkin cupcakes, and lots of fun party details.
Transforming Goodwill Furniture: Have you ever found a chair on the side of the road? I have! Read the post for tips and tricks for turning a "garage sale find" into a statement piece.
Coffee Bag Pillows: You never know where inspiration will hit- even in your local coffee shop. Transform a $5 coffee bag into a unique throw pillow.
Bathroom Redo: What started as a simple coat of paint turned into a major renovation. My husband loves his sledgehammer!
Painted Curtains: Love the bold look of stripes but can't find the right fabric at the right price? Make your own!
Playroom Re-do: Just because it is home to Barbies and baby dolls doesn't mean it can't be well-designed. Find out how to turn your play area into a room that you can be proud of.
Funky Camera Strap: Do you sew? Have you ever tried? Take a chance and create this super simple camera strap cover. Perfect for gifts or keep it for yourself :)
Creating a Unique Home: Learn to love your home! It might not be perfect, but nothing good ever is. Read my post to find out how I have transformed my house into a beautiful, comfy place that we are happy to call home.
Fit for a Princess: Upcycled Headband Holder: Do you live with royalty? I have one princess and one queen under my roof. So hair accessories are literally everywhere! Use an old oatmeal can to create a chic holder for all your 'pretty things'.
Rapunzel Party: Tangled is a favorite in my house, so when my girl turned 5 I knew that Rapunzel would be the theme of the party. We created a fun and easy party- complete with a tower cake, lots of free printables, and of course one long braid!
The Ruffled Lamp Shade: In an effort to bring more neutrals into my home, I had to think of a way to disguise my bright red lampshades. And thus the ruffled lamp shade was born. You can never have too many ruffles!
And don't forget all the fun holiday decor!
