Announcing…The Baby Shower Book!
I am BEYOND excited to share with you the launch of my very first eBook…The Baby Shower Book! I’ve been working on this behind-the-scenes for several months now (and dreaming about writing an eBook for even longer), so today is a big day for me.   Let me tell you a bit about the story of how The Baby Shower Book came to be.

I’ve hosted several showers and […]

Chevron Pallet Mounted Hanging Mason Jar Vase
I am super excited to be joining with some bloggy buddies of mine to bring you an April Fool’s Day Trendy Challenge!  We were chatting one day and thought it would be fun to see just how many craft trends we could fit into a single (legit) project…and of course, what better day to celebrate Trendfest 2014 than April Fool’s Day!  And so, friends, I give you: a Chevron-Painted Pallet Mounted Hanging Mason Jar Vase with a Washi Tape Chalkboard and Flowers Wrapped in Burlap and Twine.     The original vision for this project […]

stay-at-home mom to a beautiful little girl and handsome baby boy, wife to an incredible husband, and daughter of a loving God.

Look around, stay a while, and I hope through my unoriginality I can provide some inspiration to you, too! Read More...
