What I’m Doing Now

It’s been so long since I’ve written a blog post, I almost forgot how to access my WordPress account. I’d give you a big long apology and empty promises to get back into it, but I don’t actually have any intention of doing so. 

I wanted to be a serious…

Office Makeover

My office space was getting a little bit out of control, so I decided to make it over. I’ve been working on this project for several months, and I’ve actually been finished since before I had the baby, but my documentation of it took a little longer.

Here’s what it…

DIY Painted Clipboards

So I wanted to put a couple of clipboards on my office pegboard for a couple of reasons. First, I wanted to place them on hooks so I could both store and grab a clipboard really easily whenever I needed one. Secondly, clipboards are a great way to display…

Rocco’s Barn Door Crib

I really need to write down more things in the moment, because I can’t even remember how we decided to make this. Nano mentioned, at some point, probably during the beginning of my second trimester, wanting to build a crib for the baby. So, of course he started looking…

Hey, Baby!

Allow us to introduce baby Rocco!

 

This adorable little guy joined our family two weeks ago after a crazy few days at the hospital.

My water broke around 9:30 one evening about 3 days before my due date. However, Nano insists the midwife moved up the due date at our last…

Living Room Makeover

I can’t express to you the joy I feel right now. And the relief.

We started working on the living room last October, if we’re being technical. That doesn’t include some tests we did on the wall a couple months before that, with small patches of test paint we hid…

Our Year in Iowa: A Review

In the last few days, we’ve come upon our one-year anniversary of living in Iowa. So, naturally, I thought it would be a good time to reflect on the time we’ve spent here, as well as our experiences and perceptions during that time. 

Before we came here, all I knew…

Maternity Photos

I thought I’d share a few maternity photos to give a little visual update on the baby so far. I’m currently 28 weeks pregnant and couldn’t believe I looked this huge when I saw the pictures afterward! I mean, some days I feel pretty big, but I don’t usually…

DIY Blanket Ladder

This project was one of my easiest and most satisfying projects to date. I found the wood for 79¢ a piece and only needed 3 pieces, so it was super cheap too. Two of the pieces I was able to use at full size, so I didn’t even have…

DIY Masking Tape Art

I’ve seen these types of projects for a long time on Pinterest and I’ve pinned more than I can count. Recently, I finally decided to try one for real. Especially since I’ve had a couple of canvases that were in serious need of a makeover. 

I bought this for $20 at…
