Have you noticed I've been a bit MIA lately? I feel like it's been forever since I've posted and I sure have missed you all! Unfortunately, when your laptop decides to spontaneously stop working you are forced to take a little break. I still haven't found time to get my Macbook into Apple for repairs, so things are going to be a little slow around here until I can get it back up and running. Don't worry, I'm still working on projects and have some exciting things to share soon.
In the meantime, I've been taking full advantage of the extra free time with girls weekends, lazy Sundays, long shopping trips and being able to go to bed before 12:00.

Happy Monday. I hope you all had a great weekend!
I've updated many mason jars in the past, so I knew they would be the perfect solution to help maximize storage in our master bathroom. My plan is to remove everything out of our bulky medicine cabinet and replace it with a pretty round mirror. That meant getting creative with how to store items over our toilet and under the sink.
There are many pretty decorative jars I could have bought and believe me I was tempted to buy them. Then I pulled myself back to reality and realized I could get a very similar look for much less using mason jars.

It's the second Wednesday of the month, which means it's time for another Monthly DIY Challenge!
Let's back up a minute.

Have you all checked out the latest fall decor at Target? I stopped in the other week to pick up a few things during my lunch break and got completely sidetracked by their new fall decor. One of the items that caught my eye were beautiful wood and marble coasters.
I was so tempted to buy them, but then realized I had everything at home to make my own. So, what did I do? As soon as I got home from work I starting making coasters.

In the middle of working on our basement I've also been trying to finish my office. As a reminder, this space is actually our kitchen addition that we added about 2 years ago. Since it will be a bit until we tackle and expand the kitchen I decided to take over the space and turn it into the perfect workspace.
I previously stenciled the back wall, but just last week got the itch to paint over the stencil and I'm so glad I did. Although I loved the idea of a stenciled wall it just didn't fit my style and I was craving a change. It's the first wall you see when you walk in our mudroom and I wanted it to fit the rest of our home.

Fall is my favorite time of year! Spring is a close second, but nothing beats the crisp cool fall air and beautiful rustic decor.

Creating new pumpkin projects is one of my favorite things about fall. In the past, I've used everything from pallets, tin cans, mason jars, fabric and felt and today I'm using something completely different, birch bark.
Sometime last year I picked up a pack of natural birch bark from Hobby Lobby. I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but thought it would be neat to use in a future craft project. That day came when I was digging through one of my craft drawers in August and got the idea to create pumpkin art. Yes, I've been holding out on posting this project since I'm sure no one wanted to think about pumpkins when it was 100 degrees outside.
