Warm fall touches

Authors:

HELLO! First up, thanks to those of you who emailed about my header missing. I noticed it Friday but thought it was just a glitch…but it’s still down. I’m checking in with the designer to see what needs to happen. I have a new design coming soon (finally!!) but it would be nice to have something up there till then. ;)

So a few weeks ago I...

Free fall printables

Authors:

Hey all! Are you ready for a lovely fall weekend? I hope to get some more done in the family room and have some fun. I’m working as fast as I can on getting it all done in the family room by the way – I know many of you have asked to see the whole space. There’s still a lot for me to do – some of the walls still aren’t painted, there’s tri...

The new kitchen table

Authors:

Oh my! I am so excited about not only the new space in the family room (after taking down the wall), but the fact that we have so much more space in our kitchen as well. Because everything shifted down towards the old office our kitchen space has doubled. It is DREAMY.

A couple months back (I can’t believe it’s been that long!) I asked you...

Cleaning gas fireplace glass

Authors:

Hey hey! It’s another cool day here in Indiana! This weather is my jam. It’s about that time of year to turn on the fireplaces – in fact we’ve already had the family room going at night a couple times. Gas fireplaces are wonderful – we’ve had a wood burning one before (in an apartment if you can believe it!) and it was great but the conven...

My Monica closet

Authors:

It’s true. I have one. I didn’t used to have one -- it starts so innocently. Oh, people are coming over, I’ll just throw this bag in the closet! Oh, so and so is stopping by? I’ll just throw this thing in the closet. Oh we’re hosting dinner? I’ll just throw ALL THE THINGS in the closet.

The renovation didn’t help – but it brought it to a p...

When you do what I do

Authors:

The reason I blog (and love blogging) is to inspire others to try to do what I do. Not only for women to experiment with a tool and try something out for themselves, but just for everyone in general to love their homes and make them more “them” -- no matter what home they’re in.

So I LOVE getting photos from readers sharing the projects...

Built ins for the electronics

Authors:

Hello there! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! We had a blast celebrating our 20 year high school reunion – I came from a large class of 600+ so we had a few events throughout the weekend. It was SO much fun.

I took a break from everything DIY until yesterday when I installed the herringbone tile on the fireplace surround (check out Instag...

Hey all! Thanks so much for the comments on the fireplace and built ins yesterday! I’m so thrilled with it and am excited to get it done. I started cutting tile yesterday but ran out of time to get any up.

A painted fireplace

Authors:

Well HELLO all! I’ve been working my butt off on the fireplace this week! I don’t have a totally finished product to show you but I’m SO excited about the direction it’s going so I wanted to share. I went a little out of my comfort zone and I love it.
