Off To A Good Start: Favorite Projects Since The Blog’s Beginnings In 2012

In August of 2012, I decided to follow my dream of starting a home improvement and decor blog so I could share all the projects {and sometimes project-mishaps} that happen while the boys are in school and I am not working the night shift. I’m enjoying every minute of it and I’m looking forward to the new year sharing even more projects with all of you! I’m so happy that you all are following along

{Things to Remember}: Chalkboard Clipboard Teacher’s Gift

For Parker and Mason’s teachers, I wanted to give them something handmade that they could use all year.

And if you were to see the monstrosity of hot glue on the back of my wreath, I’d be fined for overzealous use of a craft product. Nothing comes between a crafty girl and her glue gun…except for thin

A Simple Christmas Vignette

As I am sitting here writing this, it is 72 degrees outside and I’m not complaining at all. This girl is enjoying it while it lasts.
