PREPPING THE NURSERY.

Wednesday, July 22, 2015

  

  
Hello! Today I'm over on Mom's Best sharing these easy DIY drawer lines that are done with gift wrap! As we begin our final few month countdown we are prepping this little babe's of our nursery. We all know I have a minor, or large, obsession with pretty drawers! So I knew these sweet little girl needed something special in her drawer! Although I'll be opening them 90% of the time when she's little when she bigger, getting toys out of the bottom drawers, or just doing little busy toddler things, I know she will adore these just as much as her mama! I mean that goat paper is to die for!

Here's what I used:
Double Stick Tape
Scissors
Ruler

For these liners I hopped on over to Spoonflower, found this super cute design and ordered a roll of custom gift wrap.   This is a website where creative people upload their designs and you can buy them. You can have the designs printed on wallpaper, gift wrap, fabric, and a few other options! If your brave enough you can also create your own design, upload it and have it printed. Alright enough about that, if you’re looking for this fun goat pattern you can find it here. 

For the full tutorial of these little drawers, head over to Mom's Best

Guess what? We're having a sweet baby girl!!
We couldn't be more excited. Seriously, I think I was in shock when they told us,
Like no way... I thought it was certainly going to be boy, but this sweet baby girl will be joining us in November, and she will be only the 3rd baby girl on my husbands dad's side of the family. I'm telling you girls are rare around there. We're still picking names, but the husband says we can't name her until we see her tiny little face. In the meantime we're sharing her room inspo. over at Mom's Best You can check out all the goodies over there!

In the meantime stay tune I'll be sharing some DIY + room sneak peaks as we get ready for her arrival! Check out my Instagram to see how we told our family!

We're having a baby!

Friday, June 19, 2015



Um, I think I missed this post? Maybe, but I'm sure you've seen on instagram...
WE'RE HAVING A BABY! Yes, A tiny little baby will be joining our family come November!
And we are so excited! Like 9 out of 10 of our conversations are about this baby, "who's the baby going to look like?" "Will it be a boy or girl" "I wonder if the baby will like this.." Seriously we do a lot of baby talk around this house! So I guess you could say we're excited.

But I do have to apologize for my lack of blogging DIY love, around here.
Because I wasn't quite feeling myself, and I kept wondering, will I ever love DIY'ing again? The answer is YES, I'm BACK in full force. This baby is doing good, I'm doing good, & I've felt the tiniest movements this week, it's be absolutely incredible. Last night I was laying in bed, after my ice cream sandwich treat, horrible, let's just not tell my doctor that. And this baby was moving like crazy, I was at home alone and all I could do was just laugh. Laugh but be so absolutely in love at the same time. So I'll be sharing some room inspo./ room progress ect., but don't worry the DIY's at here to stay. And since my sister is also expecting in October, we're throwing on heck of a combined baby shower so I'll be sharing that goodness to!

p.s. I shared more of these announcement photos we took over at Moms Best.

DIY Magnet Letters.

Thursday, June 18, 2015


 






I hate when those pinterest projects just REALLY speak to you.... don't you?
Gosh, this one by Sarah Hearts I just loved, so as per my usual self I get on amazon, order the letters, read the tutorial, grab some paint, and dipped my little heart out!

But seriously if you're needing some magnet letters for your fridge his is easy DIY, plus I mean seriously can we just talk about how darling they are? Get rid of the nasty primary letters, and make these instead, they are no doubt the best accent for your fridge + your little ones can play with them.

Let you heart get paint happy, and just make these!
