Travis’ Golden Birthday

Now that I know what Golden Birthdays are I couldn’t resist throwing one for my hubby. He’s less decisive than I am, so planning this shindig was literally only a couple of days before the get together took place. Travis decided that he wanted to go on a Cowtown Cycle in Fort Worth for his birthday and can I say it was a BLAST even if my butt was sore for a few days afterward.

Laundry Room Makeover: Built-in Litter Box Cabinet

I cannot stand to see my cats’ litter box, but living so close to a major highway really leaves us no choice in keeping them inside. Several years ago when we first got Phoebe and Tobias I found a post about using an Ikea box and hinges to create a litter box container it served us well for a long time, but it was finally time for an upgrade.

Laundry Room Makeover: Washer and Dryer Storage

My laundry room is getting closer and closer to exactly how I want it to look! When we were building the house, the builder insisted on installing the washer and dryer outlets at pedestal height even though I didn’t have a washer and dryer with pedestals. Well I hated it! Lesson learned don’t let someone talk you into something you don’t need or want. I enlisted my husband and dad’s help to make a shelving unit and mantel piece that would cover up the unsightly outlets.

How to Make Your Own Felt Christmas Stockings

Texas Craft House

Hi Everyone!

It is Christmas in July, right? I wanted to share these stockings I made a couple of years ago for my hubby, myself and our cats – and now that we have two new Scottie puppies I want them to have stockings as well! I went ahead and took step by step photos this time so that anyone else can make their own stockings too. I loved the elf stocking shape and could not find stockings in the store that I liked or where reasonably priced so I decided ‘Why not try to make my own?’

Making Canne Rosso’s Famous Mascarpone Dessert at Home

We love going to Canne Rosso in Dallas for their authentic wood-fired pizzas! Their pizzas are made with fresh in-house dough using “OO” flour. To make things better, their oven sits at about 900 degrees, making the wait for your pizza only a couple of minutes since they cook in about 90 seconds. You cannot go to Canne Rosso without ordering their famous dessert the “Pinche Julio.” This dessert is not on the menu so you’ll have to remember it’s name to order it. Recently, my husband and I were experimenting with recreating this dessert because we loved it so much.

First Anniversary Paper Gift Idea

Today is my third wedding anniversary and the gift theme is leather! Not wanting to be cliche about expensive and meaningless gifts I thought it would be fun to stay with the traditional wedding gift themes that were handmade or custom ordered. I’m sharing my year one gift with y’all! The traditional first anniversary gift theme is paper, I searched high and low for the best idea for a thoughtful gift to give to my husband that was’t too feminine or cheesy. I decided on maps cut into hearts of the places ‘We met, He proposed, & We Married.’ Travis and I met at the University of North Texas in Denton, TX, he proposed to me in Riviera Maya, Mexico and we got married in Lucea, Jamaica! The ability to use three completely different maps is what really drew me to this project.
