Holiday Hostess Gifts

Posted on November 23, 2015

I could know for weeks in advance that we’re headed to a party and I’ll think “Oh, I’m going to bring a totally amazing hostess gift to this party!” Next thing I know the babysitter is showing up in 3 minutes, the kids are going crazy, I have one leg in a pair of pants and my hair in a towel and yes, that’s when I remember I never got around to getting that most awesome of hostess gifts. The reason I don’t ever have that gift is because I can never think of what to bring and I keep thinking I’ll figure it out before the party. I never do. #totalguestfail But.. that is not going to happen this holiday season! I resolve not to be the lame guest. The calendar is starting to book up with holiday parties and I pinky swear I will not be caught with my pants …

One Room Challenge {my faves}

Posted on November 16, 2015

The past six weeks flew by so quickly I found myself with not enough time to peruse all those lovely rooms created by the other linked up participants in the One Room Challenge. I guess I should mention that actually that wouldn’t have happened as I had to swear off coffee drinking while web surfing. When you spill your vanilla latte on to your computer not once but twice in eighteen months it’s a sure sign you lack the coordination to multitask like that – you know coffee drinking and surfing is a talent. While working on the challenge I definitely need to opt for the coffee drinking so I took this weekend to get caught up on all my peeking at those gorgeous rooms! In case others of you are equally as clumsy when it comes to computers and coffee I thought I’d take the liberty of recapping my faves from …

One Room Challenge Playroom revamp {reveal}

Posted on November 12, 2015

Done! DONE! D.O.N.E. That would be my absolutely favoritest word at the moment. It’s been a very short six weeks and I’m happy to put a check in the box on this project. Just in case you haven’t been following along over the last few weeks I’ve been participating in the six week One Room Challenge that was the inspired brainchild of Linda at Calling It Home. Every six months bloggers join in the fun and transform a room on the fly. For this round our family playroom got the treatment. After a month and a half of blood (splinters and carpet nail strips can be hazardous), sweat and toil and a lot of take out dinners let me introduce you to the new and improved playroom. This was my starting point for the room – Barn wood, metals, organic and industrial sort of summed it up. I wanted a room that …

ORC playroom revamp {week five}

Posted on November 5, 2015

It’s week five of the One Room Challenge! Have you been following along with all the amazing rooms so many talented bloggers are creating? Each round of the ORC gets more and more amazing!   This fall I took on my kids’ playroom that was just a dumping ground for an air hockey table and masses of toys. You can follow from the start of the room here: Week One // Week Two // Week Three // Week Four Are you wondering how things went over the past seven days? Let’s just say this week was all about non-stop interference from real life: an almost day long trip to the ENT in Denver for a tonsillectomy consult(scheduled for January 6th), a trip to the vet for doggie pink eye (really??? who even knew that was a thing?), strep throat for another one and crop for another kid. Oh and then there was …

Because I’m all about these floors

Posted on November 3, 2015

Hello, hello, hello!!! It feels like forever since I’ve been sharing my witty writings with all of you. And I need to get back to it because my husband really doesn’t find me funny so its better that I save my quips for an audience who cares. Life is crazy- which is nothing new. I’ve been super busy on the helping others out with design front. Busy enough that I’m trying to also set up a website where I can put all of these amazing remodeling projects in one spot.  And also finishing up spec’ing hard surfaces for new construction projects as part of designing for Everitt and Schilling. If anyone out there wants to volunteer their time to feed my children or do our laundry I’d totally take you up on it. I’d even pay you- because eating chocolate Cheerios every night is starting to get old. Now that I’ve complained about all …
