On the fifth day of Christmas... I finally managed to write the post about making my Christmas village. I realize it's a bit unorthodox to continue with the Christmas themed content at this point, but as we currently reside in that Post Christmas/Not Yet New Year's Eve no man's land I thought I'd sneak this one in.Read More
I don't consider myself a particularly crafty individual. I do appreciate a good DIY, but only when a ready-made solution isn't cost-effective or aesthetically superior. But there's something about Christmastime that inevitably taps into some repressed get-out-the-glue-gun-and-sequins-and-construction-paper facet of my nature. This year was no exception.

This room wasn't actually part of the original scope of the project, but as I worked on the adjacent entryway I naturally started to form ideas on how we could easily refresh this space too.Read More
Our bedroom, rather unoriginally, has always been last on the decorating to-do list. It's the room no one sees, so historically has been the catchall for displaced furniture and other relics of past (sometimes questionable) design inclinations. Can you relate?Read More
