Better Homes & Gardens Came Calling… VOTE FOR ME!

I’m not what some would call a lucky person. In fact, on occasion, people have told me that I am very un-lucky. I’ve never won a giveaway, been given a free Chipotle burrito, or won the lottery. I was that kid in school that always got chosen to present my project/give my speech on the first day. So when an editor from Better Homes and Gardens emailed me to tell me that they had chosen one of my DIYs as one of their “16 favorite blogger makeover projects” I just about peed my pants. Wanna know which project they loved?

Dresser Turned Media Stand

Remember my Dresser Turned Media Stand? It remains, to this day, one of my all time favorite projects I have ever done. And apparently it is one of BHG’s favorites too! Anywho, in the spirit of March Madness, Better Homes and Gardens is running a Makeover Madness Tournament which pits DIY projects from across the web against each other. And I am crazy humbled to be going against some of my all-time favorite bloggers!

Today my dresser turned media stand is up for voting! And since all of you are my besties, I’m asking you to pretty pretty please, with a cherry and sprinkles on top go and vote for my project!

Introducing… RUBY!

Introducing... Ruby!

So… I’ve been MIA for the last week or two. I have a good reason for that. It’s this face. That one right there in that picture. This little girl is to blame. Everyone… meet Ruby. Ruby is the newest little addition to our family who joined us in the beginning of February. She is adorable and sweet and quite a handful. But I guess that is what you get with a 9 week old puppy.

DIY Wood Grain Stenciled Pail + Giveaway!!!

DIY Wood Grain Stenciled Pail

Hi. My name is Talitha and I’m addicted to shiny things. There. I said it. Admitting you have a problem is the first step, right? As much as I like shiny and sparkly stuff, I’ve always been a little afraid of glitter. I blame it on a first grade art project that ended with me washing glitter out of my hair for weeks! But, when Amy from Mod Podge Rocks emailed me asking me if I would review her new line of stencils, I decided that maybe it was a good time to give glitter a second chance. BTW, after getting Amy’s email, I may or may not have done a little happy dance while yelling, “SHE KNOWS ME!?!?” a la Buddy the Elf. Yeah. I know. Me = weirdo.

The Great Light Switch Switch

How-to Replace Old Light Switches

I wouldn’t call myself a DIY novice. I’ve been doing big DIY projects for years. But there are still some big aspects of DIY-ing that freak me out. One thing? Plumbing. Water can do a lot of damage, peeps. I don’t want leaks! But even more intimidating to me is anything electrical. And I’m not alone out there! Many of my friends have told me that they are afraid of electrical too. But, I am waaaay too cheap to hire someone to switch out light switches. So I have decided to put forth an effort to learn some basic stuff about electrical work in hopes of encouraging all of you that you can do it too. Because, let’s be honest, if I can do it… so can you! Today’s electrical 101 lesson? How-to replace old light switches!

Rustic World Map

Rustic World Map

My walls are boring. There. I said it. We have been working hard on this little house of ours since we moved in last April. But bigger projects have been our priority. We painted them. And I hung a gallery wall in the hallway. But that is about it. And my nekkid walls (especially in the living room) were really starting to bug me. Because our walls are nice and tall and there was so much open space above our TV, I wanted something big. And rustic. And schmancy. No piddly little artwork for this girl. So I pulled on my thinking cap and slipped into my artsy pants  (look at me all clothed in imaginary things! Wait. Scratch that. I do, in fact, have pants on) and set to work making my very own large scale rustic world map.
