The smallest (almost) room in the house and it's taken me the longest to decide on paint colors. I don't love the current bathroom layout, but it's functional. I have a vision of what I'd do if I came into enough money to renovate it (this being enough mone...

House Project #10: Laundry Room, Phase 2

Last year, Gwen and I managed a pretty fantastic 90s era costume. If you missed it, check it out here . This year we went more whimsical, honoring some beloved yard art. Our costumes took relatively little time; his involved some sewing and swearing, but th...

Gala Hats, 2015 edition
I've been terrible at finding the time to sit down on a (semi)regular basis to write here, let alone do any regular crafting. Summer felt hurried and full, and the school year, as always, has been in 5th gear since day one. Even when the kids were off on th...
