• Some Tips for Fellow Gatherers

    by  • October 20, 2011

    My name is Shauna Mailloux, and I am a gatherer. I have boxes filled rocks & shells, drawers of paper scraps, stacks of old bricks, bags full of cardboard tubes & salvaged fabric…etc. While this may seem like evidence of a hoarder, I like to think that it makes me a gatherer because my...

    This is not at all art or design related, but I just have to share some pictures of our new dog, Leo! Phil & I had been planning on adopting a dog around Christmas, once we had some more of our house projects completed & were more settled. But Phil found this cutie on...

    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...

    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...
