House Sneak Peek

house 3

We have been very busy this year building our dream home. Just finished the first paint stage and floors begin next week. Hopefully we’ll be moved in by March. So excited to be able to decorate and organize a house again, it’s been a long year of living out of boxes!

Excuse the yard. We are still working on removing limbs, vines, roots and stumps. All part of building in the woods, but our only neighbors are Mrs. Moore’s cows, a few deer and one very territorial fox squirrel so it was worth the extra work.

Siding – Royal 7” board and batten in Pebble Clay, Hand Split Shakes – Sand. Bucks County Country Ledgestone paired with Mount Rushmore Boral Bricks. Bronze Metal Roof paired with IKO Weatherwood Cambridge Shingles & Bright White Trim.

Building a Home

I haven’t been posting very much this year but I have an excuse. We’ve been trying to build another house! Actually, we just began the house part. January through April was spent finding land, then another 4 months knocking out a house plan, getting all the sub’s bids (the hardest part) and talking the bank into letting us do it. Been a crazy roller coaster but we’re making progress. I plan to have a post detailing all the steps we take along with a few forms. Hope to get back to crafting and blogging regularly once we get this beast built!

Week 1: Digging and filling footers (floating slab).

Kindermat Tutorial

A couple years ago I posted this Nap Mat Tutorial. Those mats held up great through 2 years of school but my son requested a different fabric this year. So I wanted to find an easier way to make one. We’ll call this the “Lazy Crafter Nap Mat” and the old one can be the “Overachiever Nap Mat”.

Here is what you’ll need:

1 – 19”x45” Kindermat (available at most stores before school)

Nap Mat blanket (optional) 2 – 36”x36” pieces of minky. I reused the blanket from my old mat so follow the directions there is you need help making it.

Spice Jar Chalkboard Labels

20140615-P1010173

Found new spice jars at Hobby Lobby that I just had to have. But didn’t want to go through the process of relabeling them using vinyl like I did before in this post. So instead I kept it simple: Jars (Hobby Lobby), Chalkboard Vinyl (Expressions Vinyl . com), Decorative Punch (Hobby Lobby) & White Oil Sharpie (Walmart). Punch out your chalkboard vinyl, write on it using your Sharpie, removing backing and stick to jar.

Updating a Vintage Train Case

This box once was blue with a floral blue liner, a bit of paint and retro fabric really helped freshen it up.
