Buffalo Check ornament JOY sign

With Christmas decorating pretty much in full swing everywhere, I’m attempting to stay the course. I have LOTS of plans and things are coming along! A new tree was purchased from Hobby Lobby a couple weeks ago, and I’m finally starting to feel a theme coming on! I can’t wait to share! While the home […]

Joy rustic shiplap Christmas sign stencil

I’ve wanted a vertical Christmas sign by my front door for a few years now. I like vertical signs because they take up less space AND don’t require hanging! Pretty convenient I say. So last Christmas, I set about creating a vertical JOY stencil. It was later in the season so I didn’t get a […]

Here we are, at the end of 2018. Another year come and gone. Isn’t it neat that Christmas ends up right at the end of it all? Kinda like a big, beautiful celebration to just end the year right! And with Christmas eve in full swing today, this will of course be my last post […]

Rustic Christmas tree forest in a livingroom with DIY crate skirt-001

I gave myself a deadline on Saturday. Self, the livingroom MUST be complete, and clean for a photo shoot on Sunday! Boy, did I have my work cut out for me. I was stalling because while I had this vision of a Christmas tree forest in the livingroom, I wasn’t sure what to use for […]

reclaimed wood faux candles with snowflake shelf-004

I really love the look of candles. I love how they flicker and make everything soooo cozy. However, I rarely burn them these days. I guess the resistance stems back from when my son was young. A flickering flame was just a dangerous thing back then. And now with jumping cats, I’m still leery. Probably […]

I had this vision of what I wish my living room to look like this Christmas… I can’t wait to share the inspiration picture with you! However I think I’ll honour that on the day I’ve hopefully done it some justice… I even had it all planned right down to the throw pillows. So when […]

String wrapped Christmas Trees with stencils

Christmas trees are kinda near and dear to my heart. As a kid, our tree was always real, heavy with tinsel and tin light protectors on big, colourful glass bulbs. We were allowed (I think?) to sneak downstairs and bring one gift back upstairs to unwrap in bed, to hold us over until it was […]

Someone asked me in comments if I could make some reclaimed wood snowmen. YES! Yes, I’ve been meaning to do this forever! Give me a challenge with reclaimed wood and I am SO in. So I quickly jotted it down in my make-this list yesterday, fully planning on doing this today. As you can already […]
