Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from Sew Woodsy

We just wanted to wish all of our readers a very Merry Christmas! We spent the past few days spending time with our families and celebrating the joy of the holiday. Today, we had probably one of our laziest days of the year. We ate, slept, watched movies, ate some more, and even played a heated game of Monopoly. This is the Christmas card we ended up choosing and designing from Minted.com. We loved the infographic and knew our family and friends would love learning a little bit about what we did … [Read more...]

Happy Halloween!

DIY Lego Costumes

Happy Halloween! Sorry we've been absent here the past week. We've been working our bums off constructing our costumes for our good friend Christy's annual Halloween party. If you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram you might have seen what we were and all the hard work that went into these costumes. We are excited to share our costumes with our readers. These costumes were a labor of love. We spent a whopping 40 hours on these bad boys. All made of styrofoam, cardboard, poster … [Read more...]

30 Days | Thirty Bloggers {Contest}

30 days 30 bloggers

It is mid-September and I've yet to write a blog post about an amazing contest we were chosen to participate in late August. HGTV Home Flooring By Shaw attended Haven in June, and we had the opportunity to meet a few of the folks behind the brand. They told us about a contest they were going to have in September and encouraged us to enter. So upon our arrival home I chose just one of our projects to submit. We had to submit a project that helped make our house a home. Immediately, our … [Read more...]

Blogging for Good: Valencia Foundation

sew woodsy college collage

Next Saturday, I am attending the second annual Central Florida Bloggers Conference. This is a local conference that doesn't focus on your genre of blogging, but on blogging for blog sake. It's a good thing too, since last year there were ZERO DIY/Craft bloggers at CFL Blog Con. Last year, when I attended the Central Florida Blogger Conference it inspired me to start "vlogging" (video blogging). Side note: Mr. Woodsy hates the word "vlog" --he thinks it sounds dirty. So, thanks to CFL Blog … [Read more...]

We are heading to the 3M Auto Boot Camp

3M Auto Boot Camp 2012

Late last month, Mr. Woodsy and I were invited to take part in the 3M Auto Boot Camp. Instantly, we both were flattered to be invited and excited to have such an awesome opportunity come our way. This whole blogging thing has been a whirl-wind of exciting opportunities for us. Opportunities we never would have thought in a million years we would have. As we approach our 2nd blogiversary we look back at where we started with one simple goal; to share our home DIY projects with our family and … [Read more...]

New Look — New Features!

Bye bye old blog design... hello new!   I'm so in love with our new blog design. This has been in the works (in my head) for the past few months. I loved our old design; however, it wasn't wide enough and wasn't doing everything I wanted it to do. AND we've had that design for almost a year now! Can you believe it? Let's talk about how our new blog design functions! Navigation menu is now in the top right corner Social icons & search are right at the top! We have … [Read more...]

Link Parties on Hold

Hi y'all. Happy 4th. Last week I didn't publish a link party, and I'm not gonna this week either. I'm really tossed about what I want to do. I learned a lot  at Haven two weeks ago. I learned a lot about SEO. You can read my part 2 recap on SEO. SEO is always so controversial. Ultimately, linking out to 5 million parties really doesn't help you... yah you might get an extra 5 pageviews for the hours worth of time you just spent linking to the hundreds of parties out their each week, but its … [Read more...]

Outdoor Living Room Reveal + Michelob ULTRA Light Cider

cost of the outdoor living room

Today, we are taking a break from our Master Bedroom Revamp Projects and revealing a little side project we completed in less than a half day. What goes best with a brand new outdoor living room? Cider of course! A few weeks ago Mr. Woodsy sent me a series of text messages asking if I wanted an outdoor furniture set. Upon reviewing a few photos I immediately said yes! It was a used set but with a little TLC I knew we could make it our own and make it better! The going price tag was … [Read more...]
