Only Child Expiring February 2017!

Only Child Expiring February 2017!

Well I've been pretty absent the past few month and I can explain. You see... we've been working on another BIG DIY project. We are expecting our second baby next year! February, to be exact! We could not be more excited. I also must mention that I started this post last month and I never quite finished it. Going to blame pregnancy brain for that one! For a while we said we were one and done and had a change of heart last year. It was after we had our annual family photos done that we just felt … [Read more...]

Modern Living Room Pinspiration Ideas

Modern Living Room Pinspiration Ideas

Thank you Cost Plus World Market for sponsoring today's post. As always, all opinions are my own.  I haven't shared a Pinspiration board in a while. Now that we have been in our house for a year it's time to start getting serious about decorating our home. Sadly, it still looks like we just moved in the other day. I'm in love with the new Super Natural collection found at Cost Plus World Market. I'm loving the new  Home Décor Color Trends and really want to get our house looking more … [Read more...]

Cruising with a 2 Year Old

Cruising with a 2 year old

  Oh boy. We've been back from vacation for over a month, and I've had the post written, but haven't had the time to sort through the 500-million+ photos we took. I've finally finished and am happy to share with you today!  All I can say is when cruising with a 2 year old... Expect the unexpected. Two year olds can be very unpredictable and let's face it--if you breath wrong they meltdown. I both love and hate this age. Hate the meltdowns but love watching their little minds work, figure … [Read more...]

My First Stitch Fix Box!

My First Stitch Fix Box!

You guys, I've finally jumped on the Stitch Fix bandwagon! I know, I know... it only took me a few years. You see, when Stitch Fix first launch and became uber popular, I knew we were trying to conceive and didn't waste a single dime on new clothes for myself. Fast forward to a few months later and I was pregnant and buying maternity clothes. At the time, Stitch Fix did not have maternity clothes. Now, they have that option and I've had a friend who has tried it and she loved it! So, fast … [Read more...]

How To Survive A Short-Term Move

This post brought to you by CORT Furniture Rental. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Sew Woodsy.

How To Make Personalized Sand Buckets

How To Make Personalized Name Sand Bucket

I'm slow going (per normal) with sharing Ryder's Birthday party stuff. I didn't do as much as I did for his first birthday; however, I did make the cutest customized sand buckets as favors for his friends. I loved how these turned out. I'm going to preface we had over 40 children as his playground party this year. So I worked on these over the span of 2 weeks. But if you have less children these won't take as long to make. I order a case of 48 buckets from the Dollar Tree; however, during the … [Read more...]

This post brought to you by Endust. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Sew Woodsy. Let's talk about dusting today, shall we?

There is nothing I hate more than having to grab multiple bottles of products and rags to clean.  This is why I love Endust--it's the perfect cleaner to combat dust! Check out … [Read more...]

Updating Old Hallway Lighting

Lamps Plus Hallway Lights

I'm back again with another lighting update from our new-to-us house. I can't believe we've already been in our house almost 8 months now! I know we've done a lot but it doesn't feel like it--and just maybe we will get the rest of our baseboards installed before the end of the summer. But until then we've been busy again updating more light fixtures. It always surprises me that homeowners fail to upgrade the builder grade stuff. By updating the ceiling lights you truly transform your house … [Read more...]
