Yes, that’s right, we dressed up our baby as a shrimp sushi for her first Halloween. Since we knew we were going to be in Portugal, I had originally convinced myself that we just weren’t going to do anything this year. Don’t interpret this as me not being into Halloween… quite the opposite… I LOVE
I didn’t have a baby shower so I haven’t been receiving many gifts (this is all by design, I’m kind of a minimalist). But, this means that there was no one to by me the Aden + Anais Jungle Jam swaddles, which I love as much as the next girl. I personally couldn’t justify spending
I was inspired to make these dribble/bandana bibs because my cousin’s son always looks so adorable in his! I just figured that rather than buy them, I would make them myself! Googling “DIY Dribble Bib” brought up about a zillion patterns, I chose the Bundles and Buttons one. Instead of sewing on straps or velcro
You got a bit of a sneak peak of this mobile a few days ago, but here’s the close ups! Since the baby is going to live in our room for the first several months, I wanted a mobile that we would also like to look at. I’m loving how it turned out! I don’t
The next four posts are some of my favourite DIY projects I’ve been up to for the baby. Having a baby basically gives you free realm to DIY stuff, pretty awesome! My very favourite project: my homemade Hudson’s Bay Blanket. Yup, starting in about April I learned how to knit. Because guys, it’s baby season.
Happy Friday friends! And hello! About a week and a half ago we wrapped our our SimpleTax’s incredibly successful first year. The next day I hopped on a plane and flew to Charlottesville for Heather and Gav’s amazing wedding. And I’m back again! Hooray!! One of the Pinterest projects that’s been on my list for
Pretty, right? I’m kind of obsessed with the new barnwood desks that I constructed for us last weekend out of very old wood from Minnesota. And I did it all without any woodworking. I don’t own any power tools (or even a manual) so these were made from planks of wood, as we bought them.
So, this project didn’t start out specifically as a man cave project. However, in the end, that is what it turned out being… and I pretty much love it. You can’t really make beer labels ethereal, can you? I did this project on the same day that I did project coasters take 2, because it
Happy August ya’ll! While some of you might lament the passing summer, I’m excited because after August comes September. And September is when the next iPhone is rumoured to be announced/released! See you later crappy-camera-super-slow iPhone 3Gs (also, #firstworldproblems)! But I digress. I’m in the midst of writing a soul-baring post since it’s been awhile
Last June (…the 2011 June…) I posted about my very first Pinterest inspired craft: coasters! That was just a sneak peak and I promised I’d put a tutorial up soon. Unfortunately, in some France-induced excitement last summer, I deleted my memory card and lost all the step-by-step images. But, never fear… yesterday I undertook project
Happy Monday friends! This is my third last “Monday” for the indefinite future. Or, I guess every day will be a Monday, depending on my mood! Given my waking up at 5:30 everyday in the last week, including weekends, because I am SO.EXCITED.ABOUT.LIFE I tend towards the no days will feel like Mondays. At least
Happy weekend friends! A few weeks ago, I told you about my brand new, diy, camera bag. If you missed it, it’s basically a Roxy Figment Bag and a Temba insert combined to form a super bag! Since its introductory post, I’ve had the opportunity to use it on two shoots, and I have to say…
I did I super fun project this weekend that drew its inspiration from all over. It was partially inspired by this “Five Dolla Art” post over on YHL, partially inspired by this Double Rainbow Pancakes post on The Girl Who Ate Everything, partially inspired by this Rainbow… post on Asthetic Outburst, partially inspired by St.
We got married on January 2, 2010, I loved our wedding, it was the best wedding ever. Ok, I’m pretty sure that is how everyone feels about their own wedding… but for real, ours was the best wedding ever. Since I didn’t have a personal blog during the wedding planning process, I’ve decided I’m going
