Happy Halloween Everyone! It’s so fun to have a little one to dress up! Next year we will have two to put in costumes!  People are always telling us that June looks like Boo from Monsters Inc. So that’s who she is tonight, and she couldn’t be happier! 🙂 I snapped a few pictures today […]

You all know that I love pallets, right? Well today I’m going to show you how I framed my Prairie Tree Artwork with some gorgeous rough boards. The painting of the tree was on a solid piece of plywood. I love painting on wood because of the textures it brings out. It worked out really […]

Today I thought I would take a break from June’s Room, and show how I made this adorable chalkboard! June loves to draw, just like mommy, so having a chalkboard helps minimize how many spontaneous pieces of “art” are found on the doors and stair spindles. I love that scene in “Mom’s Night Out” where […]
