DIY Scrabble Costume

DIY Scrabble Costume

Last year, we decided to share the gender of our baby on Halloween. After sharing our birth story earlier this year, we were going through a really rough time. We had no idea if the baby I was carrying was even going to be healthy. We had known for a few week's prior and had told only our immediate family. They kept their mouths sealed shut until we were ready to share the news with the world. Every year my former corporate job would decorate cubes and have a theme for Halloween. Last year, our … [Read more...]

How to Sew a Magician’s Cape

Magician's Cape

Learn how easy it is to sew a Magician's Cape in minutes! Back in March my mother in-law took my nephew to our local repertory theater to see a child's play. The play's main character was a magician. My five year old nephew, Nicholas, loved the play and all of a sudden wanted to be a magician. After the show they passed by the merchandise table and my mother in-law splurged and purchased a magician's hat for my Nicholas. He really wanted the cape but she just couldn't fathom spending a … [Read more...]

Crows-in-Waiting

Crows-in-Waiting

We made these crows-in-waiting back in 2012 after getting back from our Europe trip. I totally forgot to share these last year (I blame that on the severe pregnancy brain I was experiencing), and when I was going through my draft post a few weeks ago I realized I had this awesome Halloween project waiting in the wings for the world to see! When I first saw the Ravens-in-Waiting project in the Halloween edition of Martha Stewart I knew I needed to make the project. However, using paper packing … [Read more...]

Fresh 48 Newborn Photography

Warning: This is a photo heavy post of pure newborn newness. So if you love babies, newborns to be exact you'll want to keep reading, and if you don't--well what's wrong with you? Only kidding.

I'm working on this post at 3am, because someone is wide awake and well I am too, so why not utilize time to the fullest and work on … [Read more...]

Easy Sticker Easter Eggs + Egg Holder

Easy Sticker Easter Eggs #12MonthsOfMartha

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Crafts. I can't believe Easter is this weekend. It totally snuck up on us, but I guess that's partly because of the new little human being that is ruling our lives right now. It's Ryder's first Easter and although he has no clue about Easter and dyeing eggs and the massive amounts of candy that are dished out in cute Easter baskets, we still felt the need to decorate Easter eggs. But let's get real--when your living on 2-3 hours of … [Read more...]

We just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas from our family to yours. 2013 has proven to be an eventful year for us.

We will spend the next week spending time with family and friends and we hope that our readers do the same. We have a few post planned, but nothing major. We will kick off 2014 with unveiling our kitchen … [Read more...]

Stenciled Cookie Tins

Make Stenciled Cookie Tins in no time using acrylic paint, stencils, and sponges!

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Crafts.  Earlier this month, I received my final box for the 12 Months of Martha campaign I've been working on all year. December's box was all about baked goods and homemade gifting for the holidays! Which makes sense since as a DIYer I tend to make a lot of handmade gifts in the month of December (including baked goods). The December box consisted of: Compartment Treat Boxes Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookie … [Read more...]
