A Homemade Spring Wreath

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

Sarah has been on the hunt for a spring wreath for her front door for a really long time…years in fact.

Every spring wreath has been too big, flouncy, ‘fake’ looking or expensive for her liking, so this year she finally decided to make her own.

She bought a simple grapevine wreath HERE for $4.99, whitewashed it with craft paint and used four stems of paper florals from Hobby Lobby (in store) to tuck into the wreath.

Isn’t she lovely?

Under $20 and less than an hour…and so much sweeter that it’s a one-of-a-kind and we’re all happy Sarah finally has a spring wreath on the door!

Essential Oils Diffuser

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

One of the first things that hits me when I walk into a space is the smell.

Anthropologie is one of those places that comes to mind, where the divine smell hits me right when I walk in…do you know what I’m talking about? Anyhow, two of our organizing clients are huge on Essential Oils and their homes smell amazing! So when my mother-in-law gifted me an amazon gift card for my birthday, I knew what I wanted to splurge on!

I bought THIS Essential Oil Diffuser, and THESE oils.

I’m in love!

Both of these purchases are not top of the line, so I may upgrade soon, but they were priced great and with the oils only being diffused I figured they didn’t have to be the best quality.

My bedroom truly smells like a spa, and has become even more the little haven I’ve been trying to perfect.

My happy space for sure!

DIY Felted Baby Mobile

Thursday, March 3rd, 2016

We didn’t realize how much babies love mobiles until the girls arrived.
Now we know better!
We are getting all ready for Em’s baby boy and made our own version to hang above his changing table.

To make this mobile we used 30 felted balls, the inner part of a 12″ embroidery hoop (HERE) and basic white string. We bought the felt balls locally, but THIS Etsy store has a great selection at a great price.

We strung each ball with a needle and thread and tied each strand to the hoop.

This took about 15 minutes and we know baby boy will love staring up at it.

Wouldn’t this make the cutest present to give at a baby shower?
