If you've seen my post about toddler cards, you know that this mami doesn't want to put a lot of work into a craft that's supposed to be done by a toddler. So when I saw a cute little fabric pumpkin at Target I thought to myself, "this would be perfect for Cupcake to decorate… Continue reading Fall Pumpkin Toddler Craft
When we first moved in to our house, the second bedroom was affectionately called Phase 2. As in the second phase of unpacking/renovating. It remained that way until about my 4th month of pregnancy - 1.5 years later! That's when it officially became Cupcake's nursery. Ever since completing the nursery & bringing Cupcake home from… Continue reading Cupcake’s Nursery
When we first bought our house, our friends Beth & David gave us the housewarming gift made famous by 'It's A Wonderful Life'. Last summer our dear friends moved away & now they have a home of their own in Delaware. I wanted to be able to give them the same great housewarming gift, but… Continue reading ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ Housewarming Gift
I recently changed jobs in my company & along with the new responsibilities (& way less stress!) came a new cubicle. I've always been a big proponent of personalizing my workspace & having lots of pictures around me, but with this new space I wanted it to be a little nicer than my previous one.… Continue reading Photo Clothesline Cubicle Decor
Tomorrow is the day that lots of us have been looking forward to! My husband & I have been shopping, cleaning, & even started prepping some of the food for our first Thanksgiving hosted in our new house.

A few weekends ago I finally got around to making the last of my post-wedding crafts. Shortly after our wedding last December, I bought a shadow box for wedding memories. I knew I wanted to display our guest book records along with it - more on that later. So, I got to work on my shadow box on… Continue reading Wedding Shadow Box
My husband & I bought our first home a little over 3 months ago. We were very fortunate to find a house in good condition. The house did not need any major work - it just needed to be updated/customized to our liking. It's a pretty typical house for our area - 1970's construction - that came… Continue reading Guest Bathroom Remodel – In Yellow!
My husband is a very techy guy. He works in IT, & just has a way with electronics. I'm convinced he has some sort of electromagnetic field around him, because he can fix most electronics by just touching them. There have been times where my phone is acting up & I'll call out for my husband.… Continue reading Our TV Wall
One of the major projects we did in our house was a TV Wall. Instead of an entertainment center, we put up shelves. Which means that instead of a DVD rack, we have shelves. Which means that to put up our DVDs, I needed bookends. You can see where this is going. I tried to… Continue reading DIY Bookends
My husband & I have a million projects going on right now. I am not a one-at-a-time kind of person. We decided to tackle EVERYTHING we want to do to this house before we settled in & got complacent. So I can deal with some unfinished projects if it means getting to dream house (at… Continue reading First Look At The New House!
