Hello readers! Sorry to keep you hanging from my previous post where I said to check back soon to see why I had a picture sitting on the floor. I have been super busy lately with my day job and doing projects around the house. We finally finished painting the 1st floor! I’ll post some before & after pictures soon when everything doesn’t look like a tornado just hit it. (more…)
Hello! Last month I found out our wedding has been selected to be featured on TheKnot.com towards the end of April. I can’t wait to share our story & pictures with you! I did a lot of DIY projects for my wedding to personalize it to our style so I thought I’d do a few posts on my Wedding DIYs leading up to the big reveal day on The Knot. I didn’t really take pictures of my step-by-step process because I wasn’t doing a blog at the time of my wedding prep but I’ll do my best to describe everything and maybe re-take some pictures of what I can! The first post of this wedding series on my blog will be some tips that worked for me for wedding planning. I hope it helps you for your big day!
Are you getting ready to move? We are! We are moving to a new-to-us home this Friday and we are moving ourselves (DIY!) with help from friends/family! I have compiled a list of 9 tips & tricks on how to pack for a move and stay organized along the way:
1. Grocery Bags will be your new Best Friend
If you are reading this post far ahead of your move then start saving a ton of grocery bags now to use for wrapping stuff (basically free bubble wrap and then you can recycle or repurpose later!). And, if you have space, save packing materials (bubble wrap, paper, etc) from every package you get to use for your move. I had an entire bin full of packing materials I saved from over a year. And even though I had all this material I still went through a giant roll of bubble wrap!
I don’t know about you but I’ve accumulated a lot of those plastic storage containers with drawers (mostly while I was at college). They hold a ton of craft materials and just other random things. They have been through several moves and every time I’ve moved, when someone goes to pick them up, the drawer starts to slide out with the potential for EVERYTHING to fall out. Fortunately, the drawers have always been caught before they completely fall so, no harm done.
