Correcting a Painted Spelling Error



Okay, so I'm a little embarrassed. The project I shared with you all last week (Painted Poem Wall Decor) ended up having a spelling error! : / My sister actually brought it to my attention. I didn't catch the error at all! Though out the whole project I didn't see that mistake. That just shows you how bad of a speller I am.

Sewing Mondays - Pinched Bow Headband

To help encourage myself to practice sewing as much as I can, I came up with "Sewing Mondays". This will be a chance for me to show you all the tutorials I have tried, my resulting product, and what I thought of the tutorial {I promise all comments will be nice!}. Maybe I will even become proficient enough to post my own tutorials! {Baby steps first, though.} To start out, I'll post a Sewing Mondays post every other week, but if I really get the sewing fever, maybe I'll post every week!


Hey all, happy Monday! This week's Sewing Monday tutorial is the Pinched Bow Tutorial from Mandy of Sugar Bee Crafts.

Wedding Ideas

Hey everyone! I know I've been pretty MIA lately and I must apologize. But I am back and have missed you all!

Last weekend I ran in the Savage Race with my fiance {eek! I can say that now!} and friends. It kicked my butt!! We ran the race on Saturday, at a ski place, so think lots of hills! And naturally I did nothing on Sunday, which means I'm trying to get caught up on house work and blog stuff this week!

I had a tutorial I was going to share with you all, but I'm not feeling it. I will publish it soon, maybe Friday, but I'm just not in the writing a tutorial mood.

Instead I've been brain-storming wedding ideas!  So instead of a tutorial I thought I'd share with you all my ideas:

Sewing Mondays - Pencil Case

Happy Monday everyone! This week's Sewing Monday tutorial is a little different. The website I found the tutorial on is in a different language. However the pictures of the tutorial is all I needed to make this cute pencil case.

My First Attempt at Gardening


Hey everyone, I'm pretty excited about today's post. Its all about my first attempt at gardening!

Chris and I live in an apartment that is a townhouse. I love this apartment because we have an upstairs and downstairs. Because it is a townhouse we also have our own little front yard/garden. The apartment management also allows their residents to plant whatever they would like.

Chris and I like have lived in our apartment for 2 years now and plan on staying here for a few more years. {Until marriage and kids and all that jazz}. Since we don't plan on leaving for awhile I am constantly trying to make the place "ours". And now I wanted to do that to the outside by doing some gardening. Plus this was a great way for me to learn how to garden so I'll know what to do when we buy a house. Here is what  I did:
