Stuffed Rabbit Tutorial

Easter is just around the corner! With our oldest being only 2 years old we haven't done anything yet with the secular side of the holiday. This year we have talked about doing a little egg hunt for him in our unit but with Chris having to work that day, and a friend flying in, I think we might just stick to talking about Jesus, dying eggs and wearing bunny ears I bought at The Daiso (Japanese dollar store). As a child I personally had an extravagantly amazing egg hunt across our 2.5 acres…

Box Bottom Drawstring Bag Tutorial

What's a box bottom bag? One that sits up by its self! Drawstring bags can be a fun way to package a gift and when done yourself can be entirely customizable to shape, size, and height! Sometimes, the most appropriate gift bag (or most esthetically appealing) is one that can sit up on its own which requires a stable bottom (scroll drown to see picture). The following is a tutorial on how to make a drawstring bag roughly 8" tall with a bottom 4.5"x4.5". Here's what you'll need: 2 pieces of…

Three HTML Tricks a Blogger Can't Go Without!

Autumn (Toddler Created) Banner

I don't think I officially told you guys that I got my 50mm 1.4f lens serviced! After the huge push around from Nikon (I seriously felt like they bullied the little guy, aka me) I easily and quickly got it successfully serviced by a local Seattle place. They thought it was sort of a joke that Nikon didn't work on it and happily accepted the job (read my money)! Needless to say it's been so nice having it back. With the new addition of Brenik I have wanted to be more intentional with the time…

Infant Floral Headband Tutorial

Lets make this clear, we do not know what the gender is of our baby, don't want to start rumors! However, since the day we knew we were pregnant with number two we've been under the strong assumption that we're having a girl. Not sure why the hunch, and do hunches really matter, but that's where our head is at! The whole not knowing hasn't been an issue besides not knowing which kind of name we need to be set on. We've had our girl name settled since before getting married but with the…

This is a fantastic idea from Root and Blossom. It's a kitchen chalkboard rack! Kitchen Dining, Kitchen Decor, Dining Room, Kitchen Chalkboard, Rustic Country Kitchens, Home Organization, Organizing, Beautiful Wall, Measuring Cups

Kitchen Chalkboard & Measuring Cup Rack

So this project has been in the works for about 9 months now because of our trip to Japan when it should have been an afternoon, or MAYBE weekend sort of thing. I wanted to free up one of my kitchen drawers as well as have my measuring tools more accessible so an in cupboard rack is what resulted! The chalkboard wasn't necessary, but sort of was at the same time- I love the hidden character it give to the kitchen! Originally I planned to use the chalkboard for something practical like…

1 Hour 4th of July Bunting Tutorial

I've never been much for decorating or celebrating the 4th of July even though I have a running 'Patriotic' board on Pinterest- check it out! I did used to enjoy fireworks... Now I hold my breath praying they don't wake the baby. Do you go all out for Independence Day? It's not that I'm not patriotic, I feel very lucky to be an American and grateful for all the privileges that comes with that but I just don't really do much for any holiday besides Christmas. We live in a big Navy town though…

Felt Easter Egg Bunting

From all the felt projects I've done in the past I have quite the stack of odds and ends just hanging around and wanted to use some of it up. With Easter being just around the corner and much of my collection being colors that are Easter appropriate I thought I'd put together a quick and simple bunting inspired by the paint chip garland I made a few years ago. Materials handful of different colored felt felt for backing (I chose white) soft drawstring rope sewing machine pins cardboard to…

Make a Paper Rosette for JUST 8 Cents!

For Gabriel's birthday I bought some paper rosettes from Party City and those can set you back upwards of $2 a piece! I felt like there should be some way to easily make them DIY but with all the planning on my hands I didn't venture in that direction. Since the party I came across some tutorials on blogs using scrapbook paper but that can are up fast and cost just the same as the store bought rosettes! The other day at the dollar store I came across a pack of 100ct origami paper and figured…

Cloud Mobile DIY

So, I did manage to get my sewing machine to Japan in one piece however the boxes I shipped to Japan two weeks before we left still haven't arrived leaving me sans essential sewing tools. If you've been following me for at least a year now you know how smitten I am with the Japanese dollar stores, ie the 100yen store. I was sort of antsy the first week because I didn't have any projects to work on so I figured that I'd make a small purchase at the local store. Yes, this was all purchased at…

Naughty & Nice Card Display

I wanted a new way to display Christmas cards this year. Last year I used the red picture frame with the wire and clothes pins but I just don't have the heart to remove Gabriel's monthly photos I place on there for his 1st birthday. As I KEEP mentioning (are you over it yet?) I have been a little obsessed with getting back in touch with my roots and with that comes birch. When I think about times from my childhood traveling back to Minnesota (the land of the Swedes) playing in the birch tree…

Herringbone Canvas Art {EASY}

A few weekends ago a girlfriend and I were trying to figure out what to do... We often joke about how "cool" we are- mid-twenties, turning in early, spending our evenings being entertained by Gabriel, baking, or watching something super educational and thought provoking guilty pleasures on TV after the babe goes to bed. Sometimes I see the Facebook and Instagram feeds of peers going out and hitting the town, wearing flashy clothes, living it up and I think, "boy it would be fun to have a…

DIY Rustic Cupcake Stand

The idea of this cupcake stand came around when I was storming up ideas for Gabriel's 1st birthday party. Because the theme was 'honey bear' based around Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree I wanted a 100 acre wood feel which meant my gorgeous antique milk glass cake stands had to stay on the shelf for this party! I had recalled seeing some rounds of wood at the craft store from one of my countless trips (can anyone else practically walk the aisles of JoAnn's and Michael's in their head?) and…

Burlap Runner Tutorial

I have had a bolt of burlap sitting in craft room/ guest room for eight months! I bought it on a crazy Christmas sale right before leaving for Japan- it was such a tease guys. Since I was away from my precious burlap for six months I had plenty of time to storm up countless ideas in addition to the custom burlap buntings I sell in my Etsy. A Couple years back I found quite the steal on a buffet at a second hand store which we (mainly my husband) refinished. I've struggled over the years to…
