Modern Crib & Rocker Guides

Hi All!
I have started to curate 2 boards over on Pinterest for modern cribs and one for modern gliders & rockers. I have made all attempts to add prices (where I could find them) and the images link to the actual store. Please come over and check them out!

I will be adding and updating these guys as new styles and finds are released! Thanks for looking!

Lowes Creative Ideas Website

I learned about the Lowes Creative Ideas website this past weekend and my every waking moment (ok, maybe not EVERY) has been consumed with drooling over/dreaming of all the cool projects they have on the site. The best part is they are labeled by skill level and they also give the estimated cost of the project. Genius.

Here are the projects I am “sure” I will be finishing in the next few months…

1. Leaning Shelf
2. Children’s Play Table
3. Kitchen Storage Cart
4. Stack it Up Table (FYI – this link is currently broken on Lowes site)

Living Room Update

A week ago we got our new twin sleeper and lamp from CB2 and they are starting to grow on me. At first I was unsure the new couch/sleeper got along well with my baby – a Room & Board couch – but I think they do! Sometimes it just takes a while to get the feel of a room.

Here are the two items we got:

CB2 Julius Twin Sleeper
CB2 fujiya floor lamp

And here they are in our living room – coexisting happily!

Our Living Room

Tents Galore!

I came across this fab post from Cakies about a month ago and just knew we had to make this for little H for his upcoming 1 year birthday party! I passed on the link to my hubby (who would be taking care of any woodworking/drilling/nailing that had to happen) and he quickly agreed we needed this in our home post-haste. So this past Sunday Dom headed with Hayden in the stroller to Home Depot (a mere 3 miles from our house) to procure the wood while I headed to IKEA for the fabric (I don’t ever need an excuse to go to IKEA!). I’ll skip past the boring pics of us trying to drill wood in our apartment (mostly because I forgot to take any) and get right to the awesome result pics:

We were so thrilled with the outcome that we set it out immediately to try it out. Dom and I took turns hiding out in it while we watched episodes of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations and ate Pocky. I wonder who is going to get the most use out of this thing…

Helllllllo Again!

I have been a bad blogger. I know, I know. But I can believe what a time suck my little man is turning out to be! Who knew?! Anyway, I have been inspired lately by all the craftastic moms (and non-moms) out there who seem to have time for it all, work/life/kids, ect. So I am creating a challenge for myself that I want to start Dec. 1st. I am calling it the 12 Days of Crafting (I know, catchy right?!).

Dec. 1st – 12th I will be creating a craft-a-day. I see so many tutorials out there – and have some ideas of my own – and I never seem to have the time for them. So I am shutting off the TV, giving up Words With Friends, and gettin’ out the glue gun! I will be posting my results – good or bad – everyday starting Dec. 1st, so stay tuned for awesomness!

Awesome Prints!

I could totally see redoing Baby V’s bedroom with some of these amazing gems in a year or so… How awesome are these!?

Put Some Pantone in Your Life

It seems like Pantone is all the rage now in home design so I wanted to do a quick roundup of some cool products & tutorials out there. Being a web designer I utilize color in my everyday work and life, and although I use hexadecimal colors for the web, I am constantly converting Pantone colors from our print department at work. I love the new range of products out there from storage containers to magnets to bags to cakes(!) that feature bright and cheery Pantone colors. So check some out here (click to view larger pics):
