Home Depot DIY Workshop: Wooden Door Mat

DIY-Wooden-Doormat-Wills-Casa-Pin

Today’s post is sponsored by The Home Depot, but all creativity and opinions are my own.

It’s spring y’all! Or like it was for all of winter here in Texas. Then it was super cold over Spring Break. I don’t even care because Easter is next week, so let’s get all pastel-y and Spring-ish. I partnered with The Home Depot and some incredible bloggers to put our own spin on a wooden door mat as part of their DIY Workshops.

ISO Advice on a Bed

Master Bedroom

I can’t even post a picture of our master bedroom in its current state because it’s so bad y’all. Also I don’t have one. I mean who takes a picture of an ugly room anyway?? You’ll have to settle with this pre move in picture. The master has historically been neglected around here. We’ve been wanting to upgrade the bed to a king because it seems like a very adult thing to do. We landed a king Sleep Number mattress via Nick’s grandparents who needed to unload their brand new one for an adjustable one. Thus escalating the priority of getting a design plan for the bedroom and purchasing an actual bed.

Easter Gift Guide

Easter-Gift-Guide

Easter is super early this year, so I’ve been thinking hard about what gifts we should get the kids. We’ve been massively purging, so I want things that are¬†practical and timely (hello Spring). Nothing that would eventually clutter up the house I’ve worked so hard to declutter.

The Long and the Short of It

Amber

There are so many ways to start a blog post after you’ve been MIA for months. Do I say sorry? Explain what I’ve been doing? Ignore the fact I haven’t posted and pretend it hasn’t happened? Let’s just imagine that I’ve done all those things. You’ve just forgiven me, and there’s a silent agreement to never speak of such things again. Now onto what we’ve been up to…

Advent Study for Families

Advent-Study-for-Families

To start this post I’d like to take the “If you give a mouse a cookie” approach because it’s so fitting. Sometimes you make a wreath early in the season which makes you start thinking about what you’re going to do this Christmas. This leads you to order an Advent study for you and your husband to do together because that is what you want to do the most. Then you start thinking about getting the kids involved, so you build an Advent wreath to celebrate with them. You want to do a study with them too, but they are still little and everything out there for Advent seems either too simple (Christmas story only) or too advanced (you have a toddler and a kindergartener not a pre teen). So since there isn’t anything out there, you decided to plan your own family advent study.

That is basically how we arrived here. I wanted to align my She Reads Truth Advent Study (Nick is using the same study but for men so He Reads Truth) with something my kids could study. It isn’t completely parallel, but it accomplishes the goal of a deeper anticipation for this season and its meaning.

Modern Advent Wreath

DIY-Modern-Advent-Wreath

I have been in full Advent planning mode for about a month. For some of you an Advent wreath has always been a part of your Christmas tradition. I had no idea what they were until I started planning for Christmas. Once I learned their significance was more than just candles (read about advent wreaths here), I was all in and needed one.

I found this advent wreath and figured I could DIY something similar since buying it wasn’t an option. All white candles would make this look more modern, but I didn’t want to lose the significance of the colors of the candles. I guess you could say my wreath is modern with traditional candles. We do like to mix styles around here after all.

DIY Christmas Wreath Trio

Christmas-Wreath-Trio
Today’s post is sponsored by The Home Depot. All creativity and opinions are my own.

This one time I had the chance to work with Home Depot, and it required me to decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving which as you know is a major controversy. However I am here to say that it’s been awesome. Dare I say life changing? First obviously Christmas spirit (that point doesn’t need more explanation). It’s like a trio of wreaths set off this intentional Christmas planning that’s making my anticipation reach child like levels. Let’s jump into the DIY shall we.

The Wonderful Wills of Oz

Halloween Sibling Costumes-3

I have a real big thing with having the kids wear coordinating Halloween costumes. I know it won’t be long before I face serious mutiny on this, so until then I am going to wear this out. (Year 1- Max & Ruby, Year 2- Lilly & Julius) Technically this year it’s based on a book too. We did read The Wizard of Oz together this summer.

DIY Shelf Paper

DIY-Shelf-Paper

I’m still reeling from our pantry makeover. It’s just so organized AND PRETTY you guys! I have a simple DIY that you are going to love and will undoubtedly do this weekend from the sheer excitement of it all.

I knew I wanted a black and white pantry with spots and stripes. Who knew that black and white striped shelf paper would prove difficult to acquire? Not this girl. I had no idea that shelf paper or shelf lining (there’s some debate on what to call it) is either plain and affordable or chic and expensive. This is why this DIY is so good. You can get any look you want for less than the price of regular shelf paper/lining. My total cost was $9 for these gorgeous lined shelves!
