Dudes! Look what I did: Über cheap $5 hard plastic cell phone case from eBay. Spray adhesive, doily, and metallic spray paint. Booyah! I lurve it.
My sister and I scored some seriously awesome vintage buttons at a yard sale a few weeks ago. The person selling them wanted about a nickel a button, so she and I spent almost 45 minutes meticulously picking out our favorites. Then the seller got tired of us in his [...]
A few weeks ago Mr. Wright forwarded me an email from his company announcing a surplus auction. Um… hello. That’s my middle name. So of course I went, and of course I took my mother along because as some of you know, that’s her middle name too. Long story short, [...]
When Taylor (my 13-year-old) and I went on vacation together last fall, one of the funnest things we did together was put on nail shields in the airport while waiting for our plane. We made a huge mess in the terminal and got a lot of strange looks at our [...]
You know how as a family when you find something you all like, you totally just run with it? That’s Lego’s in our family. Everyone likes them. Everyone wants to play with them. Everyone get’s along. Except for the getting along part. Well, our Lego obsession has now turned into [...]
I am always amazed at people who think scrapbook stores are just for scrapbooking. It’s like saying Home Depot is intended only for plumbers. I spend way too much time in Home Depot, and I have no interest whatsoever in plumbing. (Although, maybe I should learn more about plumbing since [...]
Alright, I finally dragged the bookshelf ladder upstairs. If you missed the original post about it, go HERE. And here’s how it looks in Matthew’s room: Love it. And I love how it looks with his chair! To view the rest of Matthew’s room, go HERE.
Utah Lake facing east from the Saratoga Springs side. All images shot by Mr. Wright last Saturday in the wee hours of the morning. I had good intentions of joining him, but my bed refused to let me go. And Mr. Wright stole my camera. Happy weekend everyone!
Favorite. Project. Ever. Well, maybe not ever. But definitely one I look at again and again and think, Dude! I totally made that! I might not rock appearing on television and attempting to not look green with nervousness, but I totally rocked this project! Fist pump! (May I please take this opportunity to [...]
I love picking fresh flowers from my yard in the summer and fall. The problem is, I am not a florist. And I most definitely don’t have a green house. Not much of a green thumb either, now that I think about it. If my rose bushes bloom at least [...]
If you have heard of monthly makeup, craft, and scrapbook kits in the mail, Wittlebee is taking subscription clubs to the next level with the Wittlebee monthly kids clothing club. It’s a brilliant idea for busy moms who need a little assistance in choosing stylish clothes for their little ones. The process [...]
Hey, remember when I showed you a picture of my bathroom and asked your opinion as to how I should display my towel ladder? That was awesome. Well.. I kinda… Geesh this is awkward. I kinds ended up with neither. I know, I know! I am so sorry! It’s just [...]
So this ladder was not technically new. I bought it at a yard sale so it was like new, but not right out of the box. Just thought I would preface that since ‘yall know how cheap I am and buying something new just to make it look not new [...]
This is the easiest project ever. I swear. You will love it. Go to Home Depot and just snag up three wood dowels. (Go HERE to buy them online.) Hobby Lobby sells them too for about the same price. I like the ones that are about 4 feet tall, but they [...]
It’s that time again! Yahoo! I think I may actually be a little less nervous this time. Maybe. Ugh. Never mind. Just talking about it makes my stomach churn. Tune in TODAY at 11:00 am on KSL channel 5. I will be sure and post a link when it goes [...]
As summer winds down life is getting super busy around here. Like, “I guess we should cut your hair, buy shoes since all you currently own is flip-flops, and actually pick up a few school supplies,” kind of busy. Oh, don’t get me wrong. It’s not that I don’t want [...]
If you didn’t already know, Overstock.com is based out of Salt Lake City, Utah. They opened a new outlet store in Sandy which is a short drive from where I live. I have seen a bajillion bloggers talk about checking it out so I finally decided to give it a try. OH. MY. GOSH. [...]
Since Mr. Wright works for a local publication company, he often gets to bring home books for us to read before they are released. I always enjoy a new book and the latest novel he brought home is called The Rent Collector by Cameron Wright. Awesome last name. No relation. [...]
I did not take a picture with my phone every day in June. Or July. Please tell me you had the same ambitious goal in January, jumped on the photo-a-day wagon, fell off, got run over by it, and then said it was a stupid idea anyway? I knew I [...]
Pyrography is awesome. And according to Pinterest it’s like totally coming back into style. Not to be confused with teenage pyromaniacs… pyrography is the art of decorating wood with burn marks. Yes, the 80′s have officially returned. Pyrography is also known as pokerwork or wood burning. I like calling it wood burning. Sounds [...]Pin It
