• Wedding Paper Goods – Invitations

    by  • October 4, 2011

    Luckily I was able to wait until after graduation to tackle our wedding invitations. I wanted the invitations to coordinate with the save the dates without being identical. And, at less than 2 months before the big day, I had a lot more wedding details nailed down so I could design them with a...

    Kitchen Artification

    by  • September 27, 2011

    The gallery wall is complete! You can read here about how it came into existence. I filled the frames with neutral pieces for now, but it could be nice to bring in some color one day. I just used art & photos that I had on hand, so I already have plans to change...

    Wedding Paper Goods – Save the Dates

    by  • September 22, 2011

    After the bridesmaids cards came the save the dates for our wedding. It was actually months after we had actually set the date, but I was in school, so wedding planning had to be on the back burner. I was probably procrastinating with it too because I was afraid to make decisions about it....

    Arranging a Gallery Wall

    by  • September 20, 2011

    You have to love a good gallery wall. They have such an interesting mix of shapes, visual weights, colors, art & photos…they’re wonderful. And they make any space feel cozy and personalized. I’ve been planning on putting one together in our living room, but that’s been on hold until I accumulate the right frames...

    Wedding Paper Goods – Bridesmaids Cards

    by  • September 19, 2011

    I decided to design all of the paper goods for our wedding to go along with the personalized, handmade feel that I wanted it to have. There are some really pretty generic, print-your-own invitations these days, but I just liked having the freedom to do whatever I wanted with them. Of course, I also...

    by  • September 16, 2011

    We have lots of projects planned for the kitchen in the coming weeks & months that I am really excited about 🙂 Phase 1 was the wall color – which, admittedly, didn’t make a huge difference overall, but we are well on our way! I really how it turned out, but I am more...

    Wedding Overview

    by  • September 12, 2011

    I like hearing all about other peoples’ weddings, so I thought I would share about mine! As I was planning for the wedding, people would ask me about what the wedding would be like…the style, location, the feel of it, colors, etc. I always had a hard time describing it, usually using a plethora...

    Living Room Paint

    by  • September 6, 2011

    Our living room is finally painted! And I mean finally. We’ve discovered that fixing up our house is going to be a much bigger ordeal than what we’re used to. It’s partially due to the fact that the house is a bit older (built in the 50’s), but mostly due to some sloppy handiwork...

    Hurricane Irene

    by  • September 5, 2011

    We weren’t expecting Irene to hit us that badly because we were more on the outskirts of the storm. But we planned on staying in all day and painting the living room anyways. Saturday came, and it was literally storming the entire day – from the time I woke up around 8, until well...

    Door War

    by  • August 23, 2011

    I’ve always thought that the front of our house is cute. I also think that that it has a lot of potential to become much cuter 🙂 I feel like the exterior is somewhat cold and I’ve been trying to think of ways to make it happier. Here’s the front of the house currently...
