The absolute best time of the year is upon us. Autumn. Glorious, beautiful autumn. The time for crisp mornings, apple cider, football, sweaters, and being at home. There is something about fall that makes me want to nest (I know I'm not the only one). And I love it. I love being at home. This quote by Jane Austen is perfection. It seems to fit wonderfully with the feel of autumn. I created this using my Silhouette cutting machine. It was … [Read more...]

copper pipe geometric shapes

copper pipe geometric shapes

I have been wanting to do a project with copper pipes for months. Literally, months. After coming up with about 72 mediocre ideas I decided to completely fall in love with these geometric shapes.

For these geometric shapes you'll need … [Read more...]

Unfortunately Duke passed away in November and Jada in January. *sniffle sniffle* And while they will always have a special place in our … [Read more...]

Using one of Curt's photos, I decided to make a print with a lovely little reminder that beauty … [Read more...]

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! After our hallway makeover I wanted something really spectacular to hang on the wall. And I was pretty sure I wanted it to be some DIY art. After much deliberation and sketching, I decided on this DIY world map art in mint and gold. I hung it above the fireplace just for pictures. It's tough to get a great head-on shot in the hallway.
