Happy last day of May! As usual around here, I like to do a round-up of what has been going on on the blog for the last 31 days. The big project that got under way this month was our nursery room makeover. We’re taking the former office-come-guest-bedroom and turning it into our nursery-with-a-small-office-space. We bought and put together a new IKEA desk,painted the closet pink and built some custom shelves… …re-did a used dresser… …and installed some removable wallpaper… Read more »

I don’t know about you, but April has somehow flown right by. I’m not altogether disappointed though, as we had a suuuuper long winter here in Ontario and now it’s finally beautifully warm, with lots of sunshine and chirping birds. Happiness. I feel like I didn’t get much done around here in April. The “to-do” list is still about the same as it was in March. Just the ebb and flow of a DIYer I guess (plus our vacation this… Read more »

April already!!!! Can you guys believe that? Time is whizzing by – though I’m quite happy to get closer to Spring/Summer. I am ready to say goodbye to chilly days and this last bit of snow that seems to be sticking around (I don’t know about you – but winter is lasting FOREVER in this neck of the woods this year). Time for a little March recap of the blog. We started out crafty, making this music sheet bunting for the wed… Read more »

Apparently I totally forgot to do a January round-up of my fave posts from that month… way to start off the year, Gemma. Can I blame pregnancy brain? Anyway, here is a slightly beefy post with the highlights from both January and February. I finally got around to tackling the other side of the hallway with Ribba frames. Still need to patch and paint the ceiling, and I owe you another post about that light fixture. I’ll get to it,… Read more »

Somehow November has come and gone (seriously, I feel like I can’t even remember the last 4 weeks?!) but you know what that means? December is here. Holla! This is definitely one of my favourite months of the year – sparkly decoration overload is the norm, cookies seem to make an appearance at every meal, and so much fun time spent with family and friends. It doesn’t get much better. Beware grinches, I’m a full on holiday lovaah (I cozied… Read more »

October has flown by. I think that maybe I always feel that way, but seriously, where has fall gone? We have been super busy lately and I have to admit, I’m sort of looking forward to hunkering in for some cozy cold-weather nights at home, not rushing around. I’m sure once the snow is here I will be dreaming of warmer weather again, but for now it’s nice to look forward to the winter. Let’s look back at October on… Read more »

Now that I have been blogging for 2+ years and have a bevy of DIY projects, house tweaks, and other events documented here, I thought it was time to start doing the monthly recap. Lots of other bloggers do this as a way to summarize the highlights from that month. It definitely makes it easier to go back into the archives, especially if you’re new to a blog. So without further ado, the September highlights reel. The first DIY project… Read more »
