So Casey and I are moving. You may have already heard that. But... because of that we are trying to get rid of stuff and I have all kinds of clothes that I don't want/ don't fit anymore. For a while, I will be listing all of these things on my eBay account so check it out! I have only posted coats and jackets for now but there will be more to come so check back often! Here are some of the coats I have for sale and you can click on the pictures to be taken to the eBay page.

So let me start off by saying SORRY! We have been slacking on posting lately but hopefully we can get that under control in the next few days. We have decided to move so we've been focusing on that a lot lately. When we do finally get moved, I'm sure we will have tons of decorating DIYs so get excited about that! Our move means a bigger house which means more entertaining!! Therefore, we started collecting cloth napkins because we love the idea of using cloth napkins instead of paper towels (well, for some things.) Plus, they are waaaaay cuter than paper towels. Anyways, we decided to paint on some plain white napkins so we could add some neon to our collection. We used the potato stamping technique.
Here's what you will need:
- Potato cut in half (in either direction)
- Sponge brushes
- Permanent marker
- Exacto knife
-Blank cloth napkins
Sketch your design on the potato with the permanent marker. It will show up just enough.
Cut away the negative space around the design.
Use the sponge brush to apply paint to the potato.
Stamp the design onto the napkin.
Repeat all around on the napkin.
Let it dry!
On the other side of the potato we carved out some triangles and painted each one a different color. We only stamped this one around the edges of the napkin.
Unfortunately, these stamps will not see another day of stamping but they were so cute! Now I just want to potato stamp everything.

So this song is older than dirt, but I just fell in love with it. Savannah has been loving it for a minute. We dedicate this song to our friend Allison because she doesn't like George Strait. Go to her blog and leave her nasty comments about not liking him. How can you not love George Strait? He's a cowboy like in rodeos and stuff. Dang.

We looooove our label maker. We label EVERYTHING. Casey even labeled her cell phone. We really love the look of the punched lettering. So why wouldn't we make a bracelet with our label maker? That's right, there's no good reason why we shouldn't. Here's what you need- A label, a thick piece of cardstock or in our case, a business card. scissors, a hammer and a nail, 4 jump rings, a lobster claw closure and a piece of chain. Here's what you do...
Make your label.
Peel the back off and stick the label on your cardstock.
Cut the label out of the cardstock, making the label much thicker.
Put one hole on either side of the word using the hammer and nail.
Attach one end of the chain to one of the holes using a jump ring.
Repeat on the other side. The chain should be as long as you need to fit around your wrist comfortably.
Cut the middle of the chain to add a closure.
Add a lobster claw to one side using a jump ring.
Add a jump ring by itself to the other side.
Nice! Play around with the numbers and symbols on your label maker to change it up. We used a "$" in place of an "S" on the first bracelet.

We like to put words on things. It's a bit ridiculous but it's fun and that's all that matters when decorating. To do this to your chair you will need some stencils, paint, tape and a sponge brush. We used Handmade Charlotte stencils.
This is our canvas- a plain wooden chair that chills in our living room.
Pick out the letter and/or shapes you would like to stencil on your chair.
We decided to write "SIT HERE" with some triangles on the side.
Tape the stencils on the chair where you want them to go. Maybe I had to alter an 'F' to be an 'E'.
Sponge your brush in the paint and sponge off any excess paint.
Sponge in the letters with the colors you want to use. We used 4 different colors.
Peel off the stencils very carefully, while it's still wet. This way you can fix any mistakes.
There's our chair where it goes in our living room. Presh.

We've probably had the supplies to make this tray for like 10 months. That may be an exaggeration but I finally made it. It's super super easy!
All you need are 3 plates in 3 different sizes (we got ours from Goodwill), 2 candlesticks and E-6000 glue.
Put glue around the edge of the bottom of one candlestick.
Place the bottom of the candlestick on the middle of the biggest plate.
Put glue all over the top of the candlestick.
Place the center bottom of the middle-sized plate on top of the candlestick.
Repeat that process again with the top plate.
Let it dry and you are done! So easy and You can pile up your jewelry in a cute way.
