DIY Ballard Designs Gilt Mirror

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, April 15, 2014, In : Decor Crafts 

   Back for a super duper quick DIY. Doesn't really need much explanation as it's really just'a simple refashion. Spray paint really is a fantastic invention don't-cha know?! You can do so much with so little effort, time and mula.

I spotted these gray plastic ombre mirrors for sale from Target and thought Holy Crap! These look just like the Ballard Designs mirror tryptic that I have been coveting. And covet on and on I'd thought I'd be, until I spotted these cute little suckers for $12. Tota...

DIY Kids Splatter Art on a Drop Cloth

Posted by Honor on Sunday, January 26, 2014, In : Decor Crafts 

   The kids are restless, I am restless. I have long since reached and passed the 'I'm so over this' part of pregnancy that I'm ready to start doing jumping jacks while running up and down stairs while eating pineapple and drinking castor oil if I knew it would make this kid come out any faster. But alas I must follow the Doc's advice of 'He will come when he comes' and 'rest'.... Uh, yeah right.  I am also continuing to nest even though I have scrubbed every surface, hung every picture, wash...

DIY Easy Gold Chevron Art

Posted by Honor on Monday, August 19, 2013, In : Decor Crafts 

Thought I would ease back into my diy'n from my 'summer break' with a real quick and easy art diy.

I am doing a bit of a rearranging in our upstairs media/family room. I recently got rid of our mile long ancient davenport and now I'm trying to gear the decor to a bit more sophisticated Spanish revival type feel. So while I figure out what I really want I needed a space saver. Some quick, easy and cheap art to fill up the blank loveseat wall. Yes, I could leave well enough alone and not put an...

I am feeling super in love lately, and when I feel extra mushy gushy I just have to express it... craft wise.

Pretty excited about this one. Most of my diy projects turn out fine, but it's only a select few that turn out extra supercalafragalisticexpealadocious.... or 'thats co' in man talk. If I get a, 'that's nice honey' from the huz then I know my project turned out awwwwesome.

DIY Watercolor Spritzed Envelopes

Posted by Honor on Monday, February 18, 2013, In : Party Decorations 

   Not much is better than receiving a pretty personal piece of mail (say that five times fast!). You know what I mean. Like when you were seven, ripping open the birthday card from dear ol granny. Or like the time you tenderly peeled back the edge to see the beautiful wedding invite from your best friend.  Or like when you gingerly open one of the numerous holiday cards, to be greeted by smiling faces and a drooling tongue (of your friend's dog... not their kid... hopefully).

Wood, Nail & String Art Plus Office Peek

Posted by Honor on Friday, January 11, 2013, In : Home Sneek Peek 

As I mentioned before, we swapped rooms. Me and my little girl that is. I took over her bedroom for my office and she and her little brother are in the other spare room. It is twice the size and just perfect for two little hooligans to do cartwheels in. As for my 'new' office I decided to leave the paint color and just work with what I have around the house to decorate and style. Boy do I have a lot of stuff. It sure is pretty though. Purging tchotskies is not a strong suit of mine. I am a cl...

DIY Hand Stamped Wrapping Paper

Posted by Honor on Monday, December 17, 2012, In : Party Decorations 
Back into the swing of things I guess?! Crafting always helped clear my mind (aka distract me from the incessant thoughts and worries buzzing around up there). So what better way to distract myself than with the thoughts of my loved ones faces when I present them with these b-e-a-utiful hand wrapped lovelies.

I did a little experimenting today. Stamp experimenting that is. I did a few variations and this is the first one that I deemed fit to share with you. I tried all sorts of things to stam...

My little muscle man was pooped out before the party even started!

Well, the party went off with out a hitch. It was a blast! The kiddos bounced to their little hearts content, decorated dozens of mini pumpkins and ate their weight in candy.
I made waaaaay to much food, but hey, leftovers are the best right? And I may have gone overboard with the decorations. Just a little. A smidgen. My only regret is that I wish I took more pics. You all know how it gets before a party. The running around wit...

DIY Spooky Halloween Hallway

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, October 10, 2012, In : Party Decorations 

All you need is some Halloween spider webbing and a pack of spider silhouettes (found @ the Dollar Tree), to create this spooky hallway.

 Some quick tips
* If you have very textured walls you can just secure the webbing to that, otherwise you will need some double stick tape or tacks. My walls were covered in nails (from an empty picture frame display), so I just used those.
* Spread the webbing as thin as possible. It looks more realistic that way.
*Locate the webbing @ just above head height. ...

Invitations are being sent. Decorations are being put together. Recipes are being researched. 

I am in complete and total party prep mode. Yes I have a month till the party but I think that half the fun is the prep. Am I alone in this thought and feeling? Probably not.
