The Boys' Bathroom Makeover

 Once again, if you follow me over on Instagram, you've seen some sneak peeks at Warner and Campbell's updated bathroom.  I  guess it's time to finally show you the whole thing.

Here is a BEFORE picture.

This was taken before we moved in.  Sadly, it didn't look much different than this for quite some time.  However, I finally found the time to give it some TLC.  

Here is that result.

I just LOVE how fresh and clean it looks!  The DIY board and batten, soft wall color, pictures, and art make it a perfect place to clean some little boys!

I'm listing all the details below.  If I leave something out, please let me know!

On to the next project...

The Details:
Wall Color: Moonshine by Benjamin Moore
Board and Batten: Combination of Tutorials found here and here
Shower Curtain and Rug: Target (rug was online only)
Hooks for towels: Home Depot
Be Brave Print: The Printed Palette
Hello Handsome Art: Hobby Lobby
Frames: Hobby Lobby and Home Goods
Instagram Prints: I usually use MPix for my printing, but good ol' Walgreens printed these out for me
Tray: consignment store

4 months

It has been 4 months since I last hit "publish" on this blog.  I have missed blogging, but with 2 young boys I've found it hard to keep up with it.  Today, as C naps and W contently watches a movie, I decided to slowly work my way back to blogging.  I've shared before that I have a hard time focusing on what I want my blog to be about.  Family, Crafts, Parties?  I'm still not sure, so you'll probably just get a little of everything from me!  

If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably been able to "keep up" with our world, but here's a little recap of our past 4 months in pictures.

Thanks to those of you who are still out there faithfully following along.   

Hopefully you'll "hear" a little more from me.

Until then...

Happy 2nd Birthday, Campbell!

My Sweet Campbell,
Yesterday you turned TWO!
I can hardly believe it.
You are sweet, independent, silly, ADORE your brother, and keep us on our toes!
 (in a good way)
You are SUPER OBSESSED with Mickey Mouse.  I've never quite seen anything like it.  I can't wait to celebrate you on Saturday with none other than a Mickey themed party!
You will always be my sweet love.
Thank you for blessing our lives so richly.

Happy Birthday!  We Love You!

**My sweet friend Leslie of Leslie Waters Photography took these amazing photos!  I can't wait to share more of them with you.  She did a wonderful job!

Campbell's 2ND Birthday: A Banner, Favor Tags, and a Shirt

Here are a few things I've been working on for Campbell's birthday. If you follow me on Instgram then you've already seen this stuff. 

The Banner
Right before Christmas, Target had this adorable vintage Mickey calendar on the dollar spot.  I grabbed it, just in case, Mickey was to be our birthday theme.  Luckily it is, so this calendar became a simple bunting banner.
The Favor Tags
I told you in my last post, that I've been learning how to use Photo Shop.  I created these chalkboard looking Mickey ears for a few signs I've already made (more on those later), so I thought it would be fun to make the favor tags using the same theme.  I used Mickey's iconic "See ya real soon" phrase typed up in a free Disney font.  The favors have arrived and I'll show you those soon enough...promise!  
A Birthday Shirt
This shirt is for Campbell to wear on his actual birthday (and after).  I actually have another shirt planned for the party.  I ordered it.  It arrived.  And then I had to return it for another size.  Fingers crossed it arrives in time, but at least we have this as a backup if needed.  
This shirt was made with my Silhouette.  It was my first time using the heat transfer material and I'm excited with how it turned out!  You'll get to see the final product on the birthday boy soon enough!

More to come!! :)

Campbell's 2ND Birthday

I apologize for being MIA for awhile.  Back in February we were hit hard with the AWFUL stomach bug and then life in general just kept me away from here.  

With Campbell's 2ND (how can that be?!) birthday approaching next month, I decided it was the perfect time to get back to the blog.  

Let's start with the invitation...

Yes, my beyond obsessed child is getting a Mickey Mouse party this year!  You all know how I feel about character parties, but as usual, I'll be placing my own "twist" on it!

I was super excited and proud of myself for creating this invitation.  I've been trying to teach myself Photoshop, so this was quite an accomplishment for me.  However, before I could even think twice about it, I merged all the layers together and forgot to change the pixels.  UGH!  Thank goodness I had a sweet friend who was willing to help me out and fix it for me!  (Thanks, Leslie)

The plan for the party is to have a simple, small backyard get together with family and a few close friends.

I'm excited to share some of the projects I'll be working on in preparation for the party!  I hope you'll continue to check back in!

Stay tuned...

The Powder Room

This weekend I decided it was time to finally do something about the builder's beige half bathroom. 

Do something I did!  

With a little Sherwin Williams Sea Salt, a thrifted shelf and frame, handmade pallet art, and a new mirror, I fixed the room right up!

I love it!

Now, to make myself commit to a gray color for the rest of the house...

What Would You Do?

Why are paint colors SO hard?!

  Thank goodness for these Sure Swatches!  They might be the most fabulous things ever!

Now, let me know your thoughts! (*smile*)

A Sweet and Simple Silhouette Inspired Baptism

On Sunday, Campbell was baptized at our church. 
(I apologize for the photo quality, but it is the only one I currently have available and it is from a camera phone. )

The ceremony took place after church and then we had family and friends back to our house for a luncheon.  

I have been on a silhouette kick lately and when I ran across this sweet image of a little boy praying, I knew it would be perfect to incorporate into the baptism.

I kept the decorations super simple.  Throughout the house I used silhouettes, doilies to bring in a vintage/lace feel, fresh flowers, and bibles verses.


We couldn't have asked for a better day!

Congratulations, sweet boy!  We love you!

Every good and perfect gift is from above.
