Astrid Costume | How To Train Your Dragon

I love my daughter. When she commits to a Halloween costume she doesn’t change her mind. So as I was putting the finishing touches on her costume last year she informed me she wanted to be Astrid for this year. So I had a whole year to mull it over and plan. But of course who needs a year, when you can get it done in one long weekend right?

Hallway Intervention | How to Dress Up Your Radiator

Our front hallway was an eyesore. It’s not very big, and quickly our ugly brown radiator became a catch all for junk; from wet winter boot liners in the winter to garden gloves, and running shoes in the summer. It needed some sprucing up, and I needed some cheering up. I had been to a friend’s house where she had painted her radiators pink in her daughter’s room and I was immediately inspired. Who says the radiator had to stay the builder brown that it had been since the house was built in 1910?

Letter Art | Get crafty with your walls

After I finished my wallpaper storage solution behind the door of my office, I moved on to the walls, which were a clean slate. I envisioned a collage of frames (to come on a later post), but I wanted to break it up with something more organic. I LOVE vintage lettering from old store signs but they are quite expensive. So I asked myself how I could do a DIY solution. This idea was inspired from the pom poms I made last spring with my kids. Super easy to do, you can customize the font and letter you want. Here, I have chosen to do the first letter in my company logo and I love the results. This would be fantastic for a kid’s room using their initials. Happy DIY’ing!
