Here is another Baby Announcement sign I made.  This one is for the Wilson’s.  Their babies nursery reminds me of a tree house.  They painted a beautiful mural on the wall of a big tree with a couple owls perched on a branch.  I really wanted this sign to look like it belonged in that room.

It is on a 9×12 board.  Fun and totally personal!  Love it!

I saw a sign similar to this on Pinterest and wanted to try my hand at creating one.  For more signs available, please check out the Etsy Shop.


So Pretty in Paint: Welcome Friends & Family

Since posting it on Facebook last night, I’ve already had two requests to make similar ones but adding “The ___ Family Welcomes our Friends & Family.”  So excited to create something for someone else!  Stay tuned for those pictures!


Over the weekend we made a quick trip to Craft Warehouse and scored these!  $5 for the both!!  With all of the redecorating we’ve been doing in our family room, I realized that we have no where to put an actual Christmas tree… so I decided I needed to make some.  I’m going to paint and glitterfy these for our fireplace mantel.

So Pretty in Paint: Glittery Christmas Trees

First I started by painting the cones a solid color.  I bought a Behr paint sample ($2.50) in the most Christmas green I could find and slapped on two coats.

After letting that dry over night, I used Mod Podge to add glitter.  The glitter was a score, only $2 bucks at Joanns, and I used LOT’S of glitter.  I wanted to see these Christmas trees across the street!

I followed the same process for the red tree, except that I had a can of red spray paint that I used instead.   They might not smell like a real Christmas tree and I certainly will not be able to put presents underneath, but they’ll do 🙂 I’m not quite done with them.  I need to make a trip to the Dollar Store and see what kind of tree stand I can come up with.  Here is the red one:

I promise to update the post once I have the tree stands and have them placed on the mantel.

Fall Inspiration Mantel

Adding a little fall color to our mantel.  This was easy and free.  Using 4 existing picture frames, two stamps, colored paper and the printer I whipped this up and I just love how it added a little color and warmth the fireplace mantel.

I love decorating my house to match the season.  This was just a quick (and cheap) update to bring in some warm fall colors.  I had this awful vase with bamboo sticks that I had been looking for an excuse to get rid of and I found it!

This was a quick and simple update that cost less than $6 bucks!  All of the floral was 70% off at Joann’s .  I already had the floral foam, the bucket, the burlap and lace.  So it was uber cheap but I love it!
