Kitchen Before Photos

IMG_8776

Guess what?! We started our kitchen remodel! We have been planning this for years and it's finally here! We found a great carpenter and they started a few weeks ago. I wanted to post a few "before pictures" because who doesn't love a good before & after :) We fell in love with this house because of the open floor plan, the size of the kitchen and the fact that it's the center of the home! We have been here a little over two years and even thought the kitchen was very 1994, thankfully it wasn't offensive.... neutral nineties haha. The worst part honestly was the boxed florescent lighting ...

Fiesta Birthday Party!

Fiesta Birthday Party!

This past weekend I threw my favorite party yet! Well, besides my wedding :) My daughter and I share a birthday and since I was a little busy last year on my 30th birthday having her we decided to go all out this year! She is our last baby and I've never done a big 1st birthday party for any of my kiddos so I was excited. One of my favorite things are margaritas so last year in the hospital I told my family "next year I want a big fiesta birthday party with Mexican food and margaritas and a Mexican dress"! I called it Bee's Birthday party but aren't all one year old parties really for the ...

DIY Ombre Curtains

ombre curtains

When I envisioned my dream craft room I knew I wanted everything very white so I could decorate with my bright (and loud) craft supplies and fabric. I searched for some fun curtains for months but couldn't find any (that I could afford ha!). So I decided to make my own DIY ombre curtains! I went with pink but the color possibilities are endless. This project was so simple but I took a few pictures of my steps, I also did this in the middle of the day and the garage lighting is terrible. Materials: - White Curtains ( I found mine at World Market) - Liquid dye (I used Rit Liquid Dye in ...

Baby Coyote Quilt

Another Baby Quilt in the books :) I love making teeny tiny baby quilts, they are quick and easy and I don't have time to get sick of them haha! I have a group of high school girlfriends that I have talked about here on the blog. We call ourselves the coyotes, which we made up when we were 14 so don't judge... but one of the coyotes is having a baby and all coyote babies deserve quilts. I was online looking for fabric and then came across the most perfect fabric that has ever been created for a coyote quilt ever!! COYOTES! Cotton and Steel to the rescue! I got a charm pack of the ...
