DIY Tile Text (+ A Big Thank You!)

DIY Tile Text - I hope you all had a good weekend and are hanging in there! Today, I have a fun post that is equal parts home / interior DIY and a personal thank you note. While this post isn’t sponsored, Lowe’s started a #BUILDTHANKS initiative asking their partners, the DIY community, friends, and families across the world, who they were thankful for during the global efforts surrounding COVID-19. Of course, I was more than proud to join their efforts to say thanks and share the groups of people Emmett and I are especially thankful for during this difficult time. The challenge was to DIY a thank you message using items we already had at home, then display the thank you note outside of our home for the community to see. I’ve been wanting to test out “tile text” for awhile now. I thought it would be a fun way to take a stab at it before trying it someplace inside our home. Emmett and I had actually planned to put together a puzzle last weekend and joked that this mosaic tile project ended up becoming “our puzzle” and weekend shelter-in-place activity… which arguably was more fun! Click through for the tile DIY, examples of how to use mosaic floor tile type in an interior setting, and for a special video message from Emmett & myself thanking some pretty spectacular people!

Easy Holiday Cards

Call me old school, but I would much rather send snail mail than an email any day. It’s probably the print designer in me, but I’m all about finding unique cards, handwriting special notes and delivering them in person or…


Finn Gets a New Dog Bed…Again

You might remember when Kalyn and I first introduced Finn and I made him an adorable buffalo check dog bed… that lasted all of two weeks. Four beds later, I’m hoping his destructive puppy phase is over. After six months of…
