Happy Wednesday! We didn't do much work on our kitchen this past weekend--instead we spent a little time unplugged and away from all technology.

I can't wait to reveal our kitchen to you--of course I really can't wait to get the kitchen finished. We are doing our kitchen revamp in phases that way our kitchen is … [Read more...]

Top 12 DIY projects in 2012 on SewWoodsy.com

Mr. Woodsy and I can't believe that another year has come and gone. 2012 was a fantastic year for us as we watched Sew Woodsy grow! We completed a few of the goals that we set for 2012.

I also learned how to use multiple wood working tools and completed my first wood working project all on my own: Revamped Wire Basket Plant … [Read more...]

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.

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...]
