Dog Bed

We adopted a dog from the Humane Society a month ago. Her name is Zoey! She is a beagle / german shepherd mix. I am obsessed with her. Before we even got a dog my husband made the rule “no dogs on the bed.” So I knew I had to make her the coolest bed…

Ruler Growth Chart

My kids are little now (1 and 3 years old) but they are growing so fast. I wanted to document it on an adorable ruler growth chart. There are a lot of ruler growth chart DIY tutorials on Pinterest, which is where I first got the idea. Some use sharpie marker for the number and…

Repurposed Shot Bag Pillow

Indoor Basketball Hoop

We had a large empty wall in the boys’ playroom. I thought briefly about making a big bulletin board to hang their drawings, but thought they’d have much more fun with a basketball hoop! I wanted to make my own backboard, I just needed to find a used hoop. I hopped on Craigslist and found one…
