The Card Conundrum

After our recent wedding, when we were finally back home, we found ourselves opening  cards from guests, friends and coworkers.  While we loved reading the well-wishes, and appreciated how gorgeous some of the cards were, we just didn’t know what to… Continue Reading →

A Whole New World

Wedding guestbooks.  A tradition that is being completely transformed by today’s brides.  Why sign a book when you can sign puzzle pieces, rocks, and wall art?!  Continuing off the beaten path, I decided on a guest globe, for it’s uniqueness,… Continue Reading →

Writing on the Glass

There were plenty of DIY projects I had to be proud of at my wedding, but what I consider to be the crown jewel was my table assignment window.  This salvaged window was bought at a flea market for about… Continue Reading →

Tying the Knot

While I love making baby hats, after 13 straight (and that’s just after Christmas), I decided I wanted to make myself a hat. Or two. First up: This one, which covers my ears and looks cute at the same time. While… Continue Reading →


Let’s start with something quick and easy: A doormat.  So easy that it was outside my door within an hour. I bought this plain old doormat from IKEA for $4.99.  Like most things in IKEA I probably didn’t NEED it,… Continue Reading →
