Tuesday's Inspiration: Pet Inspired Projects

As many of you know, Mike and I have three wonderful dogs. Yes, they drive me crazy from time to time, but overall they are all good dogs and have their own little personalities that hold a special place in my heart. I truly believe that it's important to spoil them every now and again just to illustrate how much you care.

With that being said, this gift could be anywhere from a special homemade doggie treat to a comfy bed or even a new toy. One of the things that I love the most about the Internet now a days is how easy it is to find a new and unique gift (or a DIY) even for your pets. Check out these amazing beauties that currently circling around!

New Product: Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it.

It has been a Disney Princess kind of weekend for Miss Ava and I. Not only have we started working on her Tangled inspired ceiling mural, but I also ventured onward and created one of my favorite quotes from the Disney movie Brave.

It's hard being brave sometimes when your brain is thinking of all the logical reasons why you shouldn't try something new or accomplish your dreams. But you know what? All it takes is a little bit of courage, trusting your intuition and a little bit of pixie dust. Wait, forget that last one ;)

So, without ado I present my favorite creation (to date!) that can now be purchased here:

DIY: Fall Rake Decor

diy: fake rake decor


I'm really excited to share this ridiculously, super-duper and EASY post with you today! Seriously, I think the hardest part of this whole project was painting the word "harvest" on the sign, and you could definitely use a stencil to make this part a cinch. Plus, do you remember my inspiration post a few weeks back about using corn decor? I am happy to say that I found a use for a few cobs to use in my fall decor. Yay! 

So, here are the supplies and tools you will need:

Home Update: Ava's Room

Slowly but surely I have been updating Miss Ava's room, but it has been a long and tedious process. Originally Mike and I decided that we would just keep it simple with white walls and the creamish color carpet so we could decorate it any which way you could possibly think. However, Ava had other plans. Recently she made a new friend down the street, and her room is head to toe in pink. Yowzers! Well, as you can imagine Ava obviously wanted the same thing, but with more "princess" qualities. 

Here's just a quick reminder of what her room looked like prior to us even moving into our home in June.

Tuesday's Inspiration: Bedside Lamps

There's just something about a bedside lamp that always makes a room go from dull to amazing. It may not be a focal point, but there are so many fantastic ways they can be displayed to make the overall appearance of the room pop! Not to mention, as an avid reader it gives me a better source of light for those late night reading sessions when I just can't put down a book. ;)

Check out these beauties that definitely score an A+ in my grade book!

New Product: Reclaimed Wood Shield

Good morning, Monday! :) Do you ever have an idea that just kind of smacks you in the face? Lately, that's how most of my ideas come about. It's not over coffee, or even during a brainstorming session. They'll just show up out of nowhere, and BAM(!) hello yellow. But I have to be honest, these are my favorite kind of ideas. I get excited about them, and can't stop thinking about how much fun it'll be creating this new piece. 

This my friends, is exactly how this beautiful reclaimed wood shield came about. I was updating Ava's room with her favorite color (Pepto-Bismal Pink), and I realized that even though she wanted it super girlie I could still add a few rustic elements to calm this princess room down a notch. 

So, I happily present my newest creation that is now available in our shop right over here. :)
