Are you ready to see “our” Fixer Upper?

The month of May was pure chaos… well really it was just the last 15 days. We decided a several months ago to move into my Father-in-law’s rental house when our lease was up. It needed some TLC, so we decided to take posession a few weeks before we needed to be out of our…

Free Little Library – A DIY Project

At the end of the semester when work had finally calmed down I put my amazing scene shop to good use. I have always wanted a Free Little Library; for those of you who don’t know what this is, below is a short video explaining. I decided to build one featured on DIY Network. It took…

5 Tips to Changing to Cruelty-Free Products

Over the past several months I have begun the process of changing a variety of our household, beauty, and skincare products to Cruelty-Free products. In addition to searching for cruelty-free I also tend to gravitate towards vegan/all natural products merely as a side effect. Why? Honestly, it just seemed like the right thing to do….

Knitting for a Wedding

We are exactly one month post-wedding so to celebrate here is a blog post of a few of the details (hopefully more to follow). One would assume that there wouldn’t be a whole lot of knitting where weddings are concerned. Well you know what happens when you assume…. Ring Bearer’s Pillow I know what you’re…

Garage Sale Finds

Summer project number…. I lost track! With our new peak in guests we wanted to make the rooms more welcoming and comfortable. One of these tasks included moving a TV into what we call the “Green Room.” We were reluctant to put another hole in our wall by hanging it (we learned the hard way with Tyson)…

DIY Wine Rack

As young, new homeowners, we still have empty spaces in our home along with empty rooms; so when someone offers us a piece of furniture and gives us license to DIY it we jump on it. I had been searching for a creative way to store our wine bottles and pretty stemware. Krystal’s parents just…

DIY Ring Bearer’s Box

So having over a year to plan our wedding has given me the ability to DIY projects that I want ahead of time and enjoy the process rather than trying to rush to get it done by the big day. My first DIY project was the Ring Bearers box. I got my inspirations from several…

Say Cheese! A DIY Photobooth

Any excuse to get a Polaroid camera right? In all honesty we wanted a keepsake to take away from the party that gives people a chance to express themselves and be silly. I found printable props on Pinterest but it actually turned out to be cheaper to buy a pre-made packet rather then buy sticks,…

Let’s Celebrate!

Better late than never right? Since we are taking wedding planning at turtle speed we figured we should have some sort of party to celebrate our new home and future nuptials. The party would not been have such a hit without the help of each of our families. To name a few… Tyson slaved away on…

A Divine Master Suite

It’s official, we are adults. We have a comforter, sheets, curtains, furniture, AND an accent wall in our bedroom…that match. Whoever made the rule pick your comforter before you pick your room color/decorations was a genius, because this was definitely not what I had in mind, but I’m delighted with our love nest. That’s how…
