Happy Holidays, folks! As I type, it’s a blizzard outside. I just ate pancakes. And Baby V is chattin’ up a storm. Life is good. And do you know what makes it even better? This Christmas Light Garland. Made from paper and glitzier than Jack Frost (he’s glitzy?), it really lights up your mantle! It’s a recent DIY project I created for Curbly and you can head over there for step-by-step instructions with pics!

Wood Veneer Gift Box

We all love gifts. I love to give them. Love to get them. One thing I love more than the actual gift is how it’s wrapped. I love the millions of ways you can customize the packaging of presents. I have a whole pinterest board dedicated to gift wrap!

It’s Tuesday. TUESDAY. Tuesday. Ah. I wish it was Friday. The weekends are just flying by. I’m sure it has something to do with the impending arrival of BG-dub.

Today’s is one I made for Curbly and I’m stoked to finally share it!

A few months ago, Logan and I decided to build our own dining table. We couldn’t find one we loved, so we thought we’d try our hand at creating one specific to our tastes. And boy, did we he deliver. Logan built us a dream table that I can’t wait to share with y’all! We had a bunch of pine left over and I decided it needed to be used. Enter: fabric dye.

DIY Clay Garden Markers for Curbly

June 6, 2013

Clay Garden Markers by The Proper Pinwheel

Aloha, mi amigos. See what I did there? I speak many languages. We are back from Hawaii and I am trying to recover. It was a wonderful trip that was mostly wonderful the whole time. Things that weren’t wonderful? Flights home when you’re almost 6 months prego. Two words: Fluid Retention. That’s all I’m going to say about that.

I absolutely love to garden. Unfortunately, since we’ve moved, we don’t have access to one. I’ve been forced to create a mini-oasis on our little deck at our new place. Lots of pots. Lots of petals. I’m not a pro, and sometimes mix up the herbs. To keep me straight, I created these little garden markers made from clay and you can check out the whole tutorial over on Curbly!

I swear they are so easy to make. If you’ve ever made cut-out cookies, you can definitely make these. So head on over for the how-to!
