Cutting Butcher Block for an Undermount Sink

Cutting Butcher Block for an Undermount Sink

One of my goals for 2015 is to finish sharing our kitchen that we re-did in 2013! It's been over a year and a half since we revamped our kitchen. As most of you know, our kitchen wasn't in bad shape, it just wasn't what we liked. We kept the guts of the kitchen; the cabinets and appliances and removed the formica countertops, installed a new deep sink and amazing Moen MotionSence faucet, and tiled the back splash. We also added some extra cabinet space. Today, we are sharing a few of the … [Read more...]

5 Ways to Prepare for Cold and Flu Season

I am a Filtrete Brand blogger ambassador and was compensated for this post, but all opinions and selection of additional products used in this project are my own. The dreaded cold and flu season is here. Jon has been sick on and off for the past few months, and somehow Ryder and I escaped the nasty colds he has had. It finally crept up on me last week, and I'm slowly recovering. The stomach bug and colds are going around at a few of the mommy and me weekly meet-ups Ryder and I attend. No … [Read more...]

My One Little Word for 2015 – Balance

OLW 2015 - Balance

Balance. It's my one little word for 2015. For the past month, I've struggled with coming up with a word for 2015. My word for 2014 was present. I think I did an adequate job of being present throughout the year. I've put down the phone at dinner. Given Ryder my undivided attention when he needed it most. And I've tried to put down the phone while with Jon (unless of course it was needed). I felt like a few words were applicable for how I want to live 2015. But at the end of the day, my life … [Read more...]

Everyday Stainless Steel Cleaning Tips

Everyday Stainless Steel Cleaning Tips #MeisterCleaners

This post brought to you by Meister Cleaners. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Sew Woodsy. If there is one thing I hate to do it's cleaning. I dread it like the plague. I'll cook all day long, and do loads upon loads of laundry. But give me a vacuum or worse a rag to clean stainless steel and I'm miserable. While I was pregnant we hired a cleaning service to clean our home once a month. It was a glorious thing! I knew after I gave birth we would not be able to afford the … [Read more...]

Organize Holiday Bins – Free Spreadsheet + Vinyl Labels

Organize Holiday Bins 7

Do you have a crazy amount of holiday decorations stored in bins? Our attic is bin heaven... If I had to guess we have a good 50+ holiday bins. Probably of those 50 bins, 20 are easily Halloween. For years, we have talked about coming up with a holiday bin organization spreadsheet. You see, since we blog, we tend to have to work on holiday projects throughout the year. Think working on Halloween projects during Valentine's Day and Christmas in June (our poor child is going to be so confused with … [Read more...]

Fall Home Maintenance Checklist Printable

Fall Home Maintenance Checklist Printable

I am proud to be a 3M-sponsored blogger, and as part of my responsibilities, I get the 
opportunity to evaluate 3M products. Opinions are my own.  Summer has gone and passed and we are slowly creeping into the next season, Fall! I love the summer months, but living in Florida I really love Fall (minus the hurricanes). The weather finally starts to cool down making it a little more bearable to enjoy the outdoors. It’s still warm enough to hang by the pool or go to the beach, but just … [Read more...]

I finally got around to making this DIY Burlap Bathroom Art that I've been wanting to make for the past 6 months. And to jazz up our bathroom I got one of the exclusively … [Read more...]
