Holiday Gift Guide for Kids

Today is for the Kiddos and it’s time for my Gift Guide for Kids! Those little munchkins that wait so patiently all season long for their big day at the end of December. Yours don’t wait all that patiently either? Do you get asked a few times how many more days? That’s just part of […]

Adoption, Our Story and the Wait

There’s been a few unpublished versions of this post. Many starting paragraphs keyed in and deleted. An adoption story begun, and then abandoned. A draft waiting for it’s turn. I know this isn’t the usual fun DIY, but I ask you to bear with me. Our Story I never really knew how to begin. Our […]

Week 5 – ORC, Kid’s Bedroom Design Mishaps

Oh man! This has been some week. And it wasn’t all ORC – Kid’s Bedroom Design, all-the-time. We moved out of the tiny cabin after four months, it’s our first week in the newly renovated house (though not complete), we sold the condo we bought together just before we were married (we had kept it as […]

Week 4 – ORC, Bedding and Kids Bedroom Design

Is it seriously week four of the One Room Challenge, already?! Phew! It’s been a biiiiig week around here. If you don’t already know, we’ve been living in the family cabin for four months (yes, I said months), while we completely gutted our house. And, this is the weekend we move back home! Uhh! It’s […]

One Room Challenge – Kids Bedroom Design – Week 2

Here we go again! Time for week two of the One Room Challenge, and my little girl’s bedroom design. This week I gotta talk inspiration — not because there isn’t much change to show — okay, it’s totally because there isn’t much change to show, but I digress. I do however have one important piece […]

The Giving Season – Part 2

(Pop on over to Instagram to share your own photos of holiday giving with the #fcgiving hashtag). I’ve been on a journey of teaching my (almost) 4 year old about a little holiday giving. My little bean has been accustomed to the month of December feeling very much “all about her”. Her birthday is on […]

Kiddo’s Reading Nook

The Kiddo had a little update in her room recently, in her little closet reading nook… but in case you missed it the first time around, let’s have a little refresher… She had a biiiig closet — 8 feet across, so we thought it might be fun to section off a little closet, seat / cubby […]

Yard sales and night stands.

Remember that yard sale (when I ran into the husband)? Ya, it was a good one. Not only did we come home with this incredible wood locker… But, we also scored a solid wood side table! A cute shape, and totally functional with 2 open shelves. This guy is getting a little makeover to become […]

Make your own Natural Weed Killer, with 3 Ingredients!

Who loves Pinterest? I do! That is where I found this handy dandy DIY recipe for natural weed killer. Make your OWN Natural Weed Killer, with 3 Ingredients! I used an old Febreze bottle I had kicking around, and it took about 40ml of salt, a squirt of dish soap, and then filled the bottle to […]

More Chevron, Please!

Yep, it’s official. I have a problem. A problem turning down the zig-zaggy goodness of a chevron stripe. Proven here, and here. I also love when the Kiddo’s toys are organized. So, I was so happy when I found these storage cubes to help us do a little more stashing and hiding under the TV, […]
