Happy Friday to you all!! What's going on with everyone this weekend?

Sam, my younger sister, is moving in to her own apartment this weekend! And of course my parents, Chris, and I are all going to help her move. 

Story Time: Sam and I moved in together while I was a graduate student. Having done my undergraduate school in Columbus, moving to Cincinnati for graduate school meant I didn't have any friends to move in with. {I am from Cincinnati but lost contact with those I grew up with while going to college.} So instead of moving in with a stranger, it made since to move in with my sister. I'll tell you it wasn't always easy. There were many fights, but it made us closer in the end. 

After Chris and I had been dating for about a year we decide that we wanted to move in together. {We had been practically living with each other anyway}. So Chris and I moved in together and Sam moved back in with our parents to save money. Now she has saved enough to move out on her own! I'm very excited for her and can't wait to help her decorate her apartment! 

Okay here are my internet favorite finds of the week:

DIY Wooden Art Engagement Gift


A few weeks ago Chris and I went to an engagement party for our friends. I wanted to make something special for the couple. They had already made a wedding website with all their information about how they met and the engagement. I've seen different keepsake date art around Pinterest and I thought something like that would be perfect! Here is what I did:

2nd Blogiversary Giveaway


Hey all, my blog is now 2 years old! The birthday was actually at the end of December, but with the holidays I didn't want to celebrate it then. So, like last year, I've sort of moved the birthday to January. I absolutely love my blog and can't believe it's already been two years! I can't wait to see what this year brings to the blog {hint, hint: I have something I'm very excited about in the works, but more on that later}.

Confetti iPhone Covers


Happy Monday all! I have the day off today for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and I am using it to get caught up on this and that.

Lately I've been wanting a new cover for my iPhone. You may {or may not} remember that I made some covers myself a while back. So I thought I'd make some more, but this time I wanted confetti! Here is what I did:

Book Page Sunburst Mirror


While taking photos for this year's Christmas tour post I noticed that our dining area is lacking wall decor. So I decide to fix that! I've been wanting to make a sunburst mirror out of book pages for almost a year now and I finally got around to making it. Here is what I did:

Happy Monday everyone! Things are finally getting back to normal around here. This weekend we took down our Christmas decorations and cleaned the apartment. Even all the laundry is done! It felt good. : ) I'm now ready to get back in to a routine.
