  • 10 Christmas Crafts to do with your kids!

    In our church, we are encouraged to spend time on Monday evenings with our families. It’s really up to each family how they choose to do it. Some have a gospel centered lesson, some work on their families’ emergency preparedness, some go out to the movies or somewhere fun. I love it because there is really no right or wrong way to do it as long as you spend time with your family! How great is that!? The reason I bring it up today is because I’d love to share what we plan on doing this month for each Monday. For the rest of the year, I will plan our family’s “Family Home Evenings” around teaching my kiddos (2 and 4 years old) about CHRISTmas! I plan to incorporate a Chirstmasy lesson and do a Christmas craft or recipe with them. Tonight, we are going to talk about the Christmas Star and why it is our tradition to place a star on top of our Christmas Tree. We are going to make this handprint Christmas tree that my son has…

  • Operation add coral is a go!

    I’m doing it. I’m adding one of my favorite colors to my living room but somehow it has snow balled into a whole living room update and change! Don’t get me wrong, I still like it all but if you know me but at all, you know I LOVE change around here!  I have made some adorable coral pillows and decided to make some DIY abstract artwork above my sofa and one project keeps rolling into another and I have a feeling the whole look and feel of the room is about to change dramatically! I couldn’t be more excited.  First, I bought a new modern-esque tv stand from a yard sale. It’s a dresser but being transformed. To give you an idea, here’s the iPhone photo and the inspiration for the piece. BEFORE:  and the inspiration for paint color from Natty by Design… Gorgeous right? I’ve already emailed Natty asking for the paint color so I can get started! Yay!!! Next up, I just ordered some gorgeous fabric to make some new throw pillows! I’m ditching the ones I…

  • Scattered thoughts and Inspiring Living Spaces

    Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by today! Today I want to talk living rooms. Here’s what I’m working with. I like it. I love the colors, I love our new flooring… BUT I’m bored.  I was originally inspired by House of Smith’s color palette in her gorgeous living space!  While I’m still obsessed with it, I want to add more. I think coral… I think. I really truly love the neutral I have going on with the aqua and yellow because I can really add or subtract color as I please. The only problem is just going for it!  If you take a look at my pinterest board, it’s pretty clear that I like the fun coral color that is ever so popular right now.  I already purchased some coral pillow fabric and a new tv console that is sitting in my garage waiting to be painted. Now I just need to muster up the courage to go for it! What do you think? Is coral too trendy and going to be “out” soon or do you think it’s awesome…

  • Totally Inspired Monday – Coral

    Hi friends! Holy smokes, sitting in the hospital for 2 days with a baby is hard work. I’m exhausted! My little Parker is two years old and came down with some kind of virus. He wouldn’t eat or drink and he has a fever we’re battling but now he’s home and hydrated so we’re on the up! Next step is getting him to eat but at least he is taking fluids. Thanks for all of the prayers and love for my sweet friends and family!  I have been contemplating adding coral (and maybe some gold) to my living room for a while now. I absolutely love the color and I love that my living room is neutral enough to add or remove little pops of color as I see fit. I have a thing for change in decor if you haven’t guessed yet. 🙂 Here are some inspiring photos that are making me really excited to add this fun color! via Decor8 In this one, I love the bold frames on the wall and the aqua sideboard.  I cannot find…
