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...]

Chalkboard Paint – Painted Frame

Chalkboard Paint - Painted Frame #12MonthsofMartha

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Crafts as always all opinions are my own. I'm so excited to share an easy chalkboard paint -- painted picture frame. This is another nap time craft; however, it will be a 2-nap craft meaning that you start the project during the first nap of the day and during the second nap you do the second coat of the chalkboard paint on the frame. I'm in love with all the new colors of chalkboard paint that Martha Stewart Crafts has come out … [Read more...]

PBK Ultimate Changing Table Knockoff

PBK Ultimate Changing Table Knockoff

We started working with Ana on these plans for a knockoff version of the Pottery Barn Kids Ultimate Changing Table before Ryder was born. We got the plans the day before I was sent to the hospital to be induced. A week later we were home and my mother in-law insisted Jon and I get out of the house and take a few hours away from the baby. So we did, and where did we go? To The Home Depot to pick up supplies for this changing table. Then throughout the months (yes, as in April, May, and June) Jon … [Read more...]

DIY Iron-On Vinyl Turtle Name Onesie & Pants

Today, I'm excited to bring you another quick and easy iron-on vinyl project today. We are now in round 2 of the Cricut Design Space Star challenge and this month's theme is fashion. My team decided our theme for fashion would be "pop of color". Ryder had quite a few plain onesies and pants that needed a little extra something and adding on some blue iron-on vinyl was the perfect opportunity to give it the pop of color it needed! Supplies: Onesie Pants Cricut Iron-On Vinyl Cricut … [Read more...]
