DIY Birth Announcement Subway Art + Painted Frame

DIY Birth Announcement Subway Art + Painted Frame 4

I've been wanting to make this birth announcement subway art for Ryder's room since before he was born. 8 month's later and I finally tackled this project. A few week's ago I shared his nursery gallery wall that we finally hung up. I also hinted that it wasn't complete, but that we got the big pieces up. Today, I'm sharing with you the chalk painted frame I finally got around to painting and the DIY birth announcement subway art that I put in the frame! It's super easy and ANYONE can make this … [Read more...]

8 Tips For Surviving Baby’s First Santa Photos

8 Tips For Surviving Baby's First Santa Photos

A few weeks ago before thanksgiving I brought Ryder to the mall to take photos with Santa. I was a little concerned that he would not do well with Santa, but really what I was concerned about was entertaining him in a very long line! I choose to go the week before thanksgiving on a Wednesday in the middle of the day. Now I realize most people don't have that luxury but that's ok. I have other suggestions on beating the crowds. I'm excited to say that the photo above was our very last photo of … [Read more...]

Nursery Gallery Wall

Nursery Gallery Wall #yourbigfinish

Thank you to BLACK+DECKER for sponsoring this post and inspiring me to FINALLY finish this project! I have always had a long "honey-do" list. But now with a baby I feel like the list is getting longer and nothing is being crossed off. For weeks, ok, month's I've said I was gonna finish the gallery wall in the nursery. I rocked day-and-night in my glider starring at the beautiful photos that were rested against the wall in Ryder's nursery. 2 month's ago I decided to finally put photos in … [Read more...]

Achieving the Perfect LATCH with BOTH Breast & Bottle

breast feeding in hospital

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Munchkin LATCH as part of the #LoveLatch campaign. As always all opinions are my own. Image via Christy Buonomo Photography I am proud to write that I'm a breastfeeding mama. Breastfeeding by far has been one of the hardest things I've ever done in my life. Yet, it's been so rewarding. No book can ever prepare for you for breastfeeding a newborn child (nor can a class). You seriously need hands on experience. Every baby is different and whether or … [Read more...]

Halloween 2014

dragon baby costume and dog

Better late than never. Right? I had all intentions of posting a few photos on Halloween, but it was a bit crazy-town here, and to be honest I unplugged and enjoyed the day with my family. When your a blogger you rarely ever get to unplug and just enjoy life. So, that's my plans for future holidays and important life moments. I'm slowly coming to terms that not everything has to be shared the minute/ hour/ day it happened.  I know it's been quiet last week on Sew Woodsy. I was working on last … [Read more...]

How to Install LED Lighting

How to Install LED Lighting

  This is a sponsored post on behalf of Homes.com. Before Ryder was born, Jon filmed a video for our friends over at Homes.com to share how to install LED lighting. We did this underneath and above the kitchen cabinets. We decided to recess the crown moulding and drop some LED rope lighting into the crown moulding for the nursery. It gives the perfect glow at 2am in the morning when you really don't want all the lights are on. Watch the video to learn just how Jon installs LED … [Read more...]
