Numbered Closet Boxes

Numbered Closet Boxes

I’ve been loving burlap & gray together recently : ) Both fabrics have worked their way into several projects around the downstairs that I’ve been working on at the same time. This first craft is incredibly simple, made fancier of course by my Silhouette. I simply cut a cardboard box in half, wrapped it in … Continue reading

Hymn Panels

Hymn Panels

Welcome to a new, summery version of town{homemade} I felt it was time for a change… This project came to life because the words I chose to decorate with are the chorus of a hymn I sing to Abbie almost every time I lay her down to sleep. It is my prayer that she grows … Continue reading

Nursery Wall

Well this is one project that took a little longer than intended. As I was preparing the nursery and all things baby in our house, before Abbie arrived, I comforted myself with the thought – “it doesn’t have to be perfect before she’s born; Abbie won’t know the difference if such and such isn’t up … Continue reading
