Some days I know I drive my husband crazy by emailing him links to so many pictures of home decor ideas, but we are new homeowners and that seems like appropriate justification. This isn't practical but I like it and I'm not really practical. Look Ben if we do this, everyone can spend the night. Update:  If you like this tent, you will love this blog.  Her boyfriend made this Christmas tent for her since their Christmas trip was canceled and they were snowed in.  Isn't that...

I love the pretty vintage stamps we used on our wedding invitation envelopes so much. The envelopes we used for our wedding invitations were 100% recycled paper from Action Envelope.   We used vintage stamps that I purchased on Ebay, for the invitations we sent to the wedding party, close friends and family. For all of the other guests, we used the new love stamps which were perfect. Since hiring a calligrapher didn't really fit into our budget and I had no intention of writing addresses on all of our invitations since my husband invited half of  Starkville, we decided on using...

This weekend, my best friend and favorite craft buddy Nikki and I made heart shaped crayons.  This project was so easy and fun to make.  I have a little niece who will love these for Valentine's Day.  They are perfect for little hands. Supplies Needed: Crayons (Old broken ones work the best) Mold of some sort.  We purchased this silicone one at Wal-Mart and it worked perfectly.  I suggest using a silicone one because it is easier to pop them out of the mold once they harden. Put your mold onto...

I knew that I didn't want my wedding invitations to be boring or traditional and I wanted them to be as DIY as possible.   I began to get discouraged since all of the invitations I liked didn't at all fit into my budget, but then our friend and graphic designer, Kirby Doss saved the day.  He took my handwriting and ideas and made our invitations oh so lovely. With our wedding invitations we sent a RSVP postcard (which used less paper than a traditional RSVP card with an...

Link to Mississippi is #6

On December 17th a study released in the journal Science revealed that a person's view of their own happiness closely correlates to studies objectively measuring each states' quality of life based on factors such as temperature, sunshine, crime, cost of living, etc.  Read the whole article here. With that being said, it makes me happy to report that Mississippi has ranked in the top ten for something other than childhood obesity or teen pregnancy.  I find it funny that New York is last.  I also find it interesting...
