Free DIY Snowflake Mini Banner

 Hey guys! I have a super cute tutorial & freebie to get you ready for December! 

I made the most adorable mini bunting banner using some cute snowflake graphics from Graphic StockI'll be sharing the links to them as digital graphics tomorrow, so stay tuned!

 To use the banner in your home decor, you first have to print the template I created. The link is at the bottom of this post.

Once printed, trim along the faint lines. 

Then just glue them onto some twine.


It's my new favorite contribution to my Christmas Decor!

How to Create Your Own Watercolor Graphics

Hey guys! So the number one requested tutorial I get from readers is how I digitize my watercolor graphics. It's a trade secret that is really super simple, and I am FINALLY sharing it with you all!

First, you need artwork, but that goes without saying. Second, you need photoshop. Third, you really, really want a wacom tablet.

So I have been wanting a barn door for ages. But I have nowhere to put one in my small house. When I convinced my wonderful husband to build me a hutch, and we decided to try out a barn door on it.

When I was researching how to build a barn door, most of the tutorials I found required expensive barn door hardware, or had complicated DIY's on bending & drilling through metal. I got a big headache, because I also wanted to make it into a DIY bypassing barn door.

Then I had a light bulb moment: Use a Closet Door Track! Heck yes! Lowes had one the width I needed for under $20. It is seriously super easy, y'all.

Hey everyone! We have been working on redoing our kitchen for the past few months, and I am loving all the changes! It's a small, galley style kitchen, and I wanted to add some interest to the dining area that flows on the end of it. We originally had a "hand me down" table there. But honestly, it took up too much space for our little house... and it was ugly. So we finally ditched it and came up with a better (and prettier!) solution for the space, as you can see from this post!

The Hunter & The Deer: Sibling Costumes

Hey guys! I just got back from my sister's wedding, thus the post gap. I'm not a blog post scheduler, I am more of an "in the moment" blogger. I post as things happen... Which sometimes means that I am busy chasing my three year old and trying to feed my 8 month old (who is a bottomless pit) instead of being a "good blogger."

But don't worry, I'm not going anywhere!!! :P

This year we didn't really go all out on the trick or treating. I mean, we literally got home right before Halloween, so I didn't have any costume plans for the kids. The wedding kinda monopolized my brain. Lol.

But I winged it, and came up with an adorable sibling combination: the hunter and the deer!
