I love IKEA. And I love a good IKEA Hack. When I first set out to build the entertainment center for our family room, I will tell you, I did not have IKEA in mind, nor did I ever imagine myself coming up with my own hack (usually I just enjoy the inspiration of others).
Okay, this is one of those projects I started a very long time ago, finished a somewhat-long time ago, and just never got around to blogging about until now. Which, let’s face it, is how most of my posts are going to go this summer. There are several reasons for this particular delay, mostly annoying little
I had the pleasure of throwing my little sister her first baby shower recently, and in the midst of planning and organizing and inspiration-gathering, I decided to make my own DIY cupcake stands.

So I will start by saying that I initially had no idea what I was going to do for my Valentine’s Day Decor this year. I was still suffering post traumatic stress from last year’s Valentine’s Day debacle. I was so determined to keep red out of Valentine’s Day last year, sticking with my new
This is the story of a girl. A girl who knew nothing about tools. A girl who, every time she wanted to do projects around the house (and this was something she wanted to do a lot), had to rely on her husband’s help. And don’t get me wrong, the girl’s husband was very kind,
Winter is my favorite season. There is something beautiful in the blue-gray sky of winter, and of stark trees with twiggy branches.

Okay, I have serious issues. Because what I was supposed to be doing was this: putting away Christmas decorations. And I did do that (hmm…for the most part). But when I got to my Christmas Table Decor, and I started putting away the holiday plates, and the glass Christmas trees, and anything else directly related to
