Oops. An unfortunate letterboard pinterest fail.

I felt so clever with my plan to alter my letterboard. As I gathered supplies, did the steps and took pictures as I went, I fully expected to knock your socks off with the finished product. I’m sorry to say that instead of making something wonderful, I destroyed my letterboard. It was absolutely a Pinterest fail. Let […]

simple + sweet diy painted wood hangers

My adorable cousin and her husband had the sweetest baby last weekend. This is their first and we could not be more excited for this new addition to our family. I know all families are different, so when you hear ‘cousin’ it might not be that big of a deal. But my sisters and I […]

Homemade wreaths in the family room

I posted this photo on Instagram yesterday of the project I did the night before: Cute homemade wreaths hanging on a branch. I wasn’t planning on doing a full tutorial – this one was just something I wanted to put on that big, blank wall over the couch to enjoy for the Christmas season. But […]

diy stamped leather keychain

Getting mail is one of the best parts of my day. What is it about opening the mailbox and being surprised by what’s inside?! It’s often filled with junk mail or bills, but every once in a while a magazine comes or a note from my sister (she’s so good at sending cards!) and it […]

simply embellished copper tags

We celebrated my mom’s birthday this weekend. She is many wonderful things, but perhaps one of her best qualities is her completely authentic excitement over opening gifts. Every one is the best gift ever! which makes you feel pretty great as the gift-giver. Receiving gifts is not my love language, so I have to work a little […]
