DIY Napkin Pillow Tutorial!

It is no secret that I like to make pillows out of napkins, table cloths, curtains, etc!
When I was visiting my sister in Canada last month, we whipped out a few napkin pillows and today I am sharing a quick tutorial!

I used these napkins from World Market. Love the color and fabric. Since a set of 6 is $9.99, you can make a pillow case with these napkins for just $5.00!
I am no good with zippers, so this tutorial is for a flap-back pillow case.

Super super simple. If you can sew a straight line, you can do this!
They turned out pretty great too.

It's hard to complain about a $5.00 pillow right? (oh and ignore the random threads, a true sign of a freshly sewn pillow!)

I am also eyeing a few napkins right now. The are practically begging to me made into pillows.

Happy Tuesday!



DIY Oversized Photography Art!

I have been wanting an oversized photograph for my living room for a while now.
I would love to get my hands on a piece by Gray Malin but it just isn't in the budget.

Luckily I own a starter SLR camera and decided to give it a shot (no pun intended!).
I headed down to Laguna Beach and pretended I knew what I was doing. 
With a little editing (thanks iPhoto) I managed to get a few frame worthy shots.
If I can do this, anyone can!

I printed it at Art.com when they were having a 50% off sale a few weeks back.
Their sales happen often, so just keep checking back and you are bound to get a deal.

I knew I wanted to use this Ikea Frame, you just can't beat the price for such a large size! ($24.99)

I also wanted the photograph to be as large as possible so removing the mat was a must.
I selected the 30" x 40" printing size (originally $45.99) and trimmed a few inches off the edges to fit the Ribba frame.

The large printed photograph cost $23.00 and the white frame $25.00, making the total only $48.00!

I am really happy with how it turned out.

What do you think? 
Would you willing to give this a try?



My New Target Side Table!

I have already shared my love for Target's Gold & White Collection.
Before I left for my trip to Canada my gold accent table arrived.

 I really liked it in the store, but boy I feel in love once I got it home.
Not only does it add the perfect touch of gold, it is also SO SO SO kid friendly.

It is practically a gold metal drum and my kids LOVE it.
A kid friendly table that I like too...talk about a win win.

It is currently on sale for only $48.00!
Such a great price for an awesome piece. 



My Heart.

Has it really been 10 days since I posted last? Oh my.
I have sure been missing this little blog of mine.

Last week my sweet Grandpa passed away at the young age of 92. I was able to fly back to Canada to attend the funeral and celebrate his life. He was such an amazing man.

Yesterday, I received the photos from my kids photoshoot with Breanne Larson Photography.
I am in love. 

Breanne captured my kids personalities perfectly, and frankly, I have no clue how she managed to get so many cute shots. Theo does not stop moving. I also managed to jump in a few shots too, and I will cherish these forever!

If you are located in Orange County California, I highly recommend using Breanne Larson Photography! She is currently running a fall special, $250.00 for a full session (20-25 images) or $150.00 for a mini session (10-12 images). Limited spots available. 
Such a great price! 

You can contact Breanne here and follow her on Instagram here!

What do you think, so cute or what?



E-Design Room Reveal!

I have mentioned this before, but there are very few things as exciting as receiving after pictures from e-designs. This one hit my inbox this weekend and I was thrilled to see how things came togther.
The client was a 9 year old little girl. We wanted to keep the design fun and whimsical yet create something that could grow with her. The wallpaper is definitely the star in the room. Here is the design board I created.

And here is the after...

We wanted to create a fun gallery wall filled with cute prints and sayings.
Here is my design...

And the after...

The little seating area is just adorable too!

I really could not be happier with how this space came together!

My client, Veronica Reeve,  is also an extremely talented photographer and was able to capture some very beautiful shots of the finished room. If you are located in the Salt Lake City area, I highly recommend her. You can find her work here!



Sale Finds!

I have been working hard on my house lately and SO badly need to post an update! Hopefully I can find a day when the lighting is good and the house is clean...wait, does that happen?

In the meantime, I thought I would share a few of my favorite items that are on sale.
Do you even shop the kids section? If not, you really should.
Typically there are lots of awesome pieces that can be used in any room and the prices are always a tad more affordable. Today I've rounded up my favorite Pottery Barn Kids Sale items!

I need this gold pinboard for above my desk. It is on sale for $199.00 and it is pretty amazing.
Wouldn't some pretty fabric samples look great pinned on it?

This tufted desk chair is not only pretty but comfortable! It is on sale for $339.00 (which is slightly out of my price range) and I love it.

I adore this rug! It would be so cute in an office or mudroom! It is on sale for $113.00 which is an awesome price for a 5' x 8'!

I might need to snag this rug for my entry. It is only $39.99! Wow! Such a steal.

This geometric rug would be perfect in almost any space.
It's hard to complain about $119.00 for a 5' x 8'!

Lastly, I can't stop thinking about this lamp.
The blue is stunning and the subtle pattern is amazing.
Not bad for only $55.00!

Did you see something you love?
