Who’s ready for summer? Me!!! While it doesn’t quite feel like it on the outside here in New York, we’re starting to cultivate the beach vibe on inside. I’ve been tackling a few projects here…
Hi there friends! I am thrilled to bring you another segment of the Seasons of Home Holiday Series. Today we are sharing our Fall Family Rooms & in my case my den. This series is where 16 (amazing) bloggers + a guest blogger (also amazing) share design related holiday posts throughout the season, meant to inspire you as you head into the holidays. They run the gamete from decorating tips, recipes, DIY, tablescapes and so much more!!! A big thank you to our host and my friend, Kristin from Ella Claire.
It’s been a crazy week, so much going on with my Sherwin-Williams makeover and also another BIG makeover I am working on with Rebuilding Together. John’s birthday was Thursday and now my boys are off for the week, phew! The last 2 weeks were also a little nuts as I was filming for my Abstract Art Class . You will be really surprised by some of the personal things I open up about and some of the tools I use to create art if you sign up for this class, which I so hope you will.
Anywho….I have been meaning to give an update on our puppy Denver. I have had so many questions from where he sleeps, to his energy level & temperament, to if we are still happy we made the decision. As most of you know John didn’t really want another dog. He liked being able to go away and not worry about doggie care and he also didn’t miss the chaos a dog can sometimes bring to an already hectic family life. But…I pushed for it. I wanted my boys to have this experience. With Murphy it was like they woke up one day and there he was, already in his senior years. They still loved him tons but never had that puppy experience. I am not going to lie, I was nervous being the one who ultimately made the decision on this. So nervous! You hear stories about puppies and how they uproot your life & change the dynamics of the whole house. I needed and hoped so desperately for a good experience with our new little pup. Well….it has been 7 months that we have had him and he is now 9 months old. He is the biggest love and we all adore him so, even John.
Hi there friends, I have some exciting new to share! I am launching an art class over at Jeanne Oliver’s Creative Network and it begins today! It’s my very first one and it is called Instant Abstract. Remember that big art piece I created for my den? Well I am teaching you how to make it, along with the frame.
I came back from Haven a few weeks ago with this “I can” attitude and decided I am finally going to DIY the floating bench under my stairs that I have been wanting to do for a long while but was scared. And I am so glad I did!!! I am not sure what I was scared of but I do realize the best way to tackle fear is by just going for it, with a detailed plan of course!
