  • IRON-ON is the BOMB[dot]COM

    Am I the last gal to ride the iron-on train? I had no idea these babies were so cool. So when I walked through Hobby Lobby’s entire aisle of iron-on transfers, I was…

  • DIY T-SHIRT RUG

    If you have a lot of old t-shirts and some serious down time, then this project is for you! A couple months ago, you would’ve found me on our living room floor every…

  • BASEMENT BUILDOUT : DRYWALL

    It’s been a month since we finished framing and hung the drywall for our basement project. We had hoped to be sharing the final outcome with you by now, but the finishing touches…

  • A SAPPY SIGN

    When we hung up the Mya shrine in the master bedroom, it made me realize that many other of our walls are naked. I have this thing where I don’t like hanging anything…

  • CRAYON HEART VALENTINES

    Recently, Mya hasn’t wanted to leave the house. “Stay home” is her most common demand. The cold weather makes it pretty easy to stay in and play, but we’ve been “forced”…

  • SPRAY PAINT A VASE

    Sometimes I wonder if certain things are worth posting or not. Such as spray painting a vase?! But then sometimes the easiest projects have enough impact that it’s worth mentioning. If you have…
