Within the Pages of a Book

Sunday, December 30, 2012

I love to read. I read blogs, magazines, books...pretty much anything with words! I have a nook that I enjoy reading books on, but there is nothing like turning the pages of a good book. Plus, I love the library! So...I thought it fitting that my first sewing project on my new sewing machine (thanks, Momma) be these awesome DIY book marks that I found on Pinterest

They are super simple to make. I chose a wide, leopard print ribbon, and then I folded, pinned, sewed, and viola!

The End's Not Near, It's Here

Saturday, December 29, 2012

I hope that my fellow fans of The OC appreciated the title of this post. I am still hopeful that there will one day be a reunion! Anyway, the end of 2012 is here...does anyone else feel like it should still be September? My schedule kept me pretty busy during the month of December (made obvious by my lack of blog posts...sorry about that). However, I plan to fill you in on all that has been happening in the Fletcher house over the past month in this post! 

I had a lot of fun decorating for Christmas this year. I really wish that I could leave our tree up all year round...that is how much I love it, but I had a lot more decor than the tree. I made these little snow globes, placed garland anywhere I could manage, and decked the walls with some DIY art. 

onth of December decorating and enjoying hot cocoa snuggled up on the couch. I did a lot of shopping for Christmas presents and spent lots of time with my wonderful family! 

PLUS...I purchased Young House Love! There will be a ton of DIY projects to come in the next several months! I have already flipped through the entire thing, and I have plans to use several ideas from the book! John and Sherry are awesome!

What else is coming in 2013? Well, I have lots of stuff planned! There has been a lot of progress on the porch (post coming soon), there are some color changing plans for the kitchen that should be executed in the coming weeks, and I have decided that I am going to give but first comes love a little makeover!



It's December!

Wow...I can't believe that it is December, and less then 2 weeks till Christmas! As I have every other month (except January) this year I would like to fill you in on what I did in November and what I have planned for December...and of course there will be a calendar for all of my iPhone loving friends out there!

November was a month to be thankful for! I was blessed with new opportunities, time with my family, and some great new friends. It was a busy month filled with photo shoots, DIY, and celebrations!

There are some great things in store for December...even though it is almost halfway gone. I have been a busy working DIY projects that I can't wait to share with all of you! I hope you are looking forward to my upcoming posts! 

Here is your iPhone wallpaper calendar!
