Cloth Napkin Cork Boards {Styled X3}

featured cork board pic

Welcome to a new post in my series Styled X3! I look forward to these posts every month because I love to see what the other bloggers do with the items I send them.   I was extra excited for this month's Styled X3 because I knew these ladies would knock it out of the park. I sent Brook from All Things Thrifty and Jen from With Heart, these cloth napkins from Target.   This week has been nuts. I had four big projects all due today to different brands and one just didn't get done. I may have shed a few tears while inhaling a Frosty last night. And then I went to edit the pictures from my Styled X3 project and realized the whole shoot was done with my camera in the … {READ MORE}

Other Uses for Bookcases

featured bookshelf_edited-1

Being a part of the Better Homes and Gardens Live Better team, I get to try out the BHG for Walmart products. This bookcase, has been one of my all time favorites since I saw it debuted last year at their headquarters. It has the look and texture of barnwood without the splinters. I decided to show you some fun ways it can be used. As someone living in a tiny house where storage is lacking I've learned that going vertical is a good way to maximize space. And bookcases are not JUST for books you know...     Pantry or Hutch When Shane and I first got married we lived in a studio apartment. It was the kind that you could pretty much do anything sitting on your bed … {READ MORE}

Milk & Cookie Dessert Table

milk and cookie bar for book launch featured

For those of you who read my previous post about how nervous I was about hosting a book launch party for my new book you will be glad to hear I survived. Not without some major hiccups of which I will tell you in an upcoming post, but I survived nonetheless :) One of the things I did for the party was make a milk and cookie bar for the guests and after having planned and executed it I think I have some useful tips for those of you who might want to do one for your next event.   Have the milk and other beverages on a separate table. I ran out of room so I needed to grab another table anyway, but I was also worried about it spilling. As luck would have it, one of the … {READ MORE}

Midcentury Modern Dog Bed

Before we start can I just say that I am thoroughly confused as to what the correct way to write midcentury? I see it three ways: Midcentury, Mid Century, and Mid-Century. I see all sorts of sites and brands using it in all different ways. If anyone knows a solid answer I would love to know :) Anywho... I am super excited to share with you this fun little project! Since we are planning on adopting a dog this summer, I have had all things doggy on the brain. When Ryobi asked if I had a "dog days of summer" project, I knew exactly what I would make.   It is a super simple project! It didn't take very long to make at all. And can we just chat a second about how adorable my … {READ MORE}

Bluetooth Bath Fan + HD Gift Card Giveaway!

featured dream bathroom_edited-1

You guys! Remember when we added a bluetooth bathroom fan in our down bath? Remember how I was skeptical at first. Why would you need you bath fan to double as a speaker? Well folks, it has been a year and a half now and we are still OBSESSED with it! It is loud enough that the whole downstairs is filled with music. We knew when we redid our upstairs bathroom that we wanted one up there as well. I got an email from HomeWerks last month asking if I wanted to try out their new version and I of course said yes! So I am partnering with them again to giveaway their new bluetooth bath fan :) This new version has a blue light nightlight, full stereo, and LED lights. Hello … {READ MORE}

Crates, Crates, and More Crates!

featured crate post

Remember when I gave you a little update on what I have been up to and I showed this picture of 35 wooden crates? Well I'm finally going to share with you what I did with most of them. I held a few back for another fun thing that I will share later this week.   Crates and Pallet sent me the custom sized crates. You can buy them from Home Depot's site. and they come in a variety of sizes. With so many crates, I needed to use some child labor to get the job done :)   Once they were sanded and stained, they were ready to pack! I had over 30 bloggers who were going to be receiving copies of my book to help promote. I wanted to send them something else aside from … {READ MORE}

Super Easy Pizza Dough!


We LOVE homemade pizza at our house! We make it a lot, especially on Friday nights. This pizza dough recipe we have been using for our whole marriage. It is super easy and doesn't take very long to make. [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:6]   I usually double the recipe. It makes 3 medium or 2 large pizzas. After I have it all spread out, I add my favorite sauce.     Then I added some shredded mozzarella, chopped red pepper, chopped basil leaves, diced marinated artichoke hearts, and feta cheese. The Neapolitan brand artichokes are my favorite. To help the basil not get burned and crispy, I add more mozzarella cheese to the top. Plus, who doesn't love extra … {READ MORE}

Color Burst Pillow

I have seen so many color burst pillows, rugs, throws and such floating around and I particularly fell in love with the one I saw on SF Girl By Bay. So when ScotchBlue™ asked for me to partner with them in a fun new campaign to showcase pattern, I KNEW this was the perfect first project for our collaboration.   As I am sure you already know, pillows are a fun way to add color and pattern to a space. They are easily changed out when the mood strikes. I am sure my husband would like my mood not to strike so often.... :) #ihoardpillows Speaking of moods, doesn't this pillow exude happiness?   So here is the low down on how to get super sharp lines when painting … {READ MORE}

Finish Max Sprayer GIVEAWAY!

My family room is almost done! I've dipped my hand into too many other projects so it has crept slowly along. But finally having it all painted makes me want to speed it up! This little guy is my painting BFF. He is my right hand man whenever I have doors, molding, baseboards, or furniture to paint. And since I am a brand ambassador for HomeRight, I get to give one away today!   I still need to take the tape and plastic down off the windows and and hang the freshly washed curtains, but I can visually see the room coming together in my head!     I also recently finished my hallway. The walls and trim got a layer of white and the doors a rich cobalt … {READ MORE}
