Rustic Arrow Sign

This may come as a surprise to you, but I'm going through an arrow phase. Weird right? I LOVE them as a decor element, maybe it's their simplicity or maybe I'm just caught up in a trend. Or perhaps it's because my days seem so disorganized and crazy lately that any kind of direction is welcome and if the arrow points left, then I'm going left!  May & June are our busiest months of the year, which is shocking considering we live, breathe & puke hockey (nice visual, eh?) close to 6 months of the year. So when things are crazy busy I need an outlet, so[...]

Flowerpot Centerpiece

Every year I get a little stumped around Mother's Day. Why? Well, what do you get the woman who already has EVERYTHING?!! And if she doesn't have it, she knows a crafty way to make it. It seriously becomes a challenge and then every year we end up getting her something like flowers or a bird feeder or some type of yard something. Rewind back to a month before Mother's Day when I first started to brainstorm gift ideas & then fast forward to the day before mothers Day when I still had nothing. Frick. Drawing inspiration from the super cute homemade gift Tu[...]

DIY Mothers Day Gift Ideas

Mother's day is fast approaching, are you ready for it? Our mothers day gifts for the grandma's are usually garden/outdoor based, probably because we've been cooped up all winter. The boys like to pick out the brightest colored snapdragon plant for my mom to plant in her pots. I remember as a kid making them open and close at my grandmother's house so it's pretty neat that they'll be able to make that association with their own grandma as they age! I've rounded up a few easy DIY idea's that you could make in a short amount of time, for very little money but[...]

An Army Party

Ever since Carter could dream of a career, he's wanted that career to be in the Army. We're not entirely sure where this originated from or what brought it on, we don't watch an abundance of army/war related movies nor are we hugely patriotic in the sense that we were born to serve our country. So it shouldn't have come as a shock when he wanted an Army themed party. Well actually, he asked for a Call of Duty party, to which I said No. Then it was a Halo party, uh - No. Enter a huge dramatic sigh and the response of "Fine, I'll have a hockey party". I was kind of[...]
