Garden Sign…DIY # 5

I’ve never been so excited to welcome warmer days as I have been this year!!!

In my state cold weather stretched a little too far out this year for my liking. Being stuck in my house because of chilly, windy days doesn’t always settle well with me. I’ve done alright with the idea of “quarantine” because I can still hang out in the yard, take walks, bike rides, etc. when the weather cooperates. But “stuck INSIDE due to cold temps and windy days” gets me stir crazy so everyday that warms up and the closer summer gets you can find me outdoors…somewhere.

…And honestly maybe colder days haven’t been much different this year than any other year but it sure feels like they’ve drug on and on to me but then again I’m partial to 70s and hotter!

Nevertheless we’ve managed to get a garden planted over the past few weeks which I’m super stoked about. This is our first year to plant a garden in containers outback on our patio…We’ve got basil, squash, banana peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, green beans and strawberries growing out there. I feel like it’s a science project but things are looking good…this week anyways.❤️ There’s something seriously therapeutic for me about gardening — the rhythmic sound while watering, contrasting colors of dark soil and the signs of life in those green plants, the anticipation of “harvest” time….love it!And I get just as excited about my flower garden too. Sooooo when my mom called me this past week to explain about a garden sign she wanted to make I was like “yes ma’am and I’ll make myself one too!”

It’s Spring! I’m so excited I wet my PLANTS!

Side note: My daughters are equally embarrassed by the saying and absolutely didn’t want it out front in the flower bed so it went straight to the backyard on our patio with the vegetable garden after it was finished.

**Super easy to make and right in time for Mother’s Day….if you start today…

Coffee Mug Holder DIY #3

I am such a procrastinator!!!…even with what’s supposed to be a slower-paced time. Here we are the end of March already and I’m just now getting my DIY post out.

This month’s project is super simple and serves a practical purpose.

My husband happens to be a coffee connoisseur to the point he has a monthly subscription for his fancy coffee to be shipped to our house from Black Rifle Coffee Company. (btw we’re not getting commission off of advertising for them, although we should as much as we buy from them each month😅) Nate also adds new means of brewing methods two or three times a year. With that in mind his coffee obsession was overtaking my countertops and driving me crazy so I created him his very own coffee space…and yes everything on that table and the shelves is all coffee related!!

Now a coffee bar wouldn’t be complete without a coffee mug holder…I had my eyes set on a metal one at a boutique store downtown a while ago but my penny-pincher self wouldn’t allow a purchase sooooo I got crafty and thrifty and created my own. This month’s diy “perk” will show you how you too can make your very own coffee mug holder!!! Super easy!!! Let’s get started! Continue reading “Coffee Mug Holder DIY #3”

DIY Rope Shelf Decor Gift Idea #2

I had this “grand” idea that I was going to post a DIY project once a month this year…not sure if my typical procrastinator self is showing true colors or if everyone is feeling that this year is flying already?!

Last month I scrambled to post the DIY Morse Code bracelets before January was up and now here this month’s DIY post is barely making it, and it doesn’t help that February cuts me shy a few days!!! …Of course this year is a leap year, thankfully, otherwise this post surely wouldn’t have happened!!!

Ugh but alas here we go, and the best part is this project is so darn quick, simple, and decor versatile that it keeps me excited about throwing this post together at the last minute!

Isn’t it sweet? Lets get started! Continue reading “DIY Rope Shelf Decor Gift Idea #2”
