creating a home

i am happiest when i’m surrounded by wonderful things. people, pretty patterns, sparkly things, beautiful words, tea, anything teal, etc.

since we moved into our very ugly home in december i’ve made it my mission to turn these ugly walls into a place where i am happy.

tonight we worked on the living room.
the space above the tv was terrible bare.

(watching braveheart)

one frustrated husband (apparently making them touch was easier said than done) and four picture fames later…ta da!

(still braveheart)

here’s a close up:

this project was insanely easy!

supplies:
four picture frames (i used 8.5 x 11 and got them from dollar tree)
scrapbook paper (i got a HUGE pack from michael’s for under $10)
scissors
hammer
and nails.

first take the scrapbook paper and cut to the size of the frame.
then place in frame.
next put the frame back together (i chose not to put the glass top back on but do whatever floats your boat!)
figure out how you want it to look on your wall and hammer away.

easy, inexpensive and time consuming…a military wife’s dream!

lately on instagram...
backyard bonfires with my boys ❤ if you know me, one of the best words to describe me is "busy". i spend my days constantly running from one activity to the next. even though i love all that i'm doing, it's still easy to feel burnt out. especially with the holiday season so quickly approaching, i'm making it my intention so slow down. take a few deep breaths. sit and listen to the rain. treat myself to a coffee at my favorite cafe. get to a yoga class. make time to be still. 
you can't pour from an empty cup. how will you fill yours today? all i want to do is love on him but all he wants to do is hunt down the squirrels 😀
