5 Ways to Prepare for Cold & 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...]

{Video} How to Frame a Builder’s Grade Mirror

  Most of us have them... those ugly and boring builder's grade mirror. Very few of us actually do anything to jazz them up. We recently created a video over on the Homes.com blog: Frame a “Builder Grade” Mirror. This was a project that we had wanted to tackle for quite some time. You might remember, years ago when we first started blogging we shared our Guest Bathroom Mini-Makeover + Black Crown Molding. Instead of framing out that builder's grade mirror we decided to remove it and place a … [Read more...]

{Product Review} Digital WorkTunes Hearing Protector & AM/FM Stereo Radio

You may not realize it but there are so many common DIY tools that require proper hearing protection! We didn't realize it until we met the fine people at 3M TEKK Protection a few months ago at Haven. Protecting your hearing is so important! According to 3M TEKK Protection did you know that 72% of DIYers are concerned about injuring their eyes, while only about 25% are concerned about their ears? Before Mr. Woodsy received the Digital WorkTunesTM Hearing Protector & AM/FM Stereo … [Read more...]

5 Reasons Why We Love our Oreck™ AirInstinct™ 200 Air Purifier + Giveaway

We met a few team members from Oreck two months ago while attending Haven. The first thing I saw was a variety of air purifiers at their booth! I instantly told the man (who I had not yet introduced myself too) that I could be their spokesperson (I'm not a spokesperson for them--don't worry)! We have been in the market for an air purifier for a while now. In hopes to improve my daily quality of life (and lessen on our tissue bill). If you've ever met me in person you would know that I have some … [Read more...]

Sparkling Clean Windows thanks to FISH Window Cleaning!

Last Friday, FISH Window Cleaning visited the Sew Woodsy residents for a much needed exterior/interior window cleaning! We met Nathan Merrick from FISH at Haven in June. I was excited to finally learn more about what all the buzz was about. If you read DIY blogs I'm sure you've heard of FISH! I just knew of them as the window cleaner company--I had no idea that they offered commercial and residential services. So when Nathan from Fish Foam reached out to me last month I was ecstatic! I loved … [Read more...]

{Recap} 3M Auto Boot Camp 2012

The other week, we announced that we were heading to St. Paul, Minnesota in route to the 3M headquarters for an action packed 2 nights and 3 days! We both were so excited to attend and weren't really sure what to expect going into the event. Seriously guys, 3M blew us away...  not just the auto boot camp, but everything about 3M. We went into secretive areas where you had to scan your finger to get in to creative lab areas where people spend all day working on a DIY project. How cool is that? … [Read more...]

DIY Trumeau Floor Mirror made from PureBond® Hardwood Plywood

Ever since we talked about revamping our master bedroom I dreamed of adding a floor-to-ceiling mirror in our room. I quickly woke up when I saw how expensive they were. In fact--all mirrors are simply expensive (in my opinion). Last spring, I found a tutorial from Blue Roof Cabin on making a trumeau mirror. I instantly fell in love and knew that I wanted a version of my own in my bedroom! I pinned the photo for a rainy day (yes, that's when Pinterest just started). Fast forward over a year later … [Read more...]

More time for me with Dove® VisibleCare™ Renewing Crème Body Wash

I'm taking a little time out today for me. I don't know about you, but I'm always on the go. I never take a minute for myself and sit back and smell the flowers. After a long day of work, I'm cooking in the kitchen, photographing, then doing dishes, followed by some sort of DIY/craft project and then as Mr. Woodsy lays down to go to bed I'm working on lunches for the next day and doing wash. Where is my "me-time" at the end of the day worked into this equasion? My shower! That's my me-time … [Read more...]
