DIY Round Plywood Coffee Table

A couple months ago I shared my living room that was mostly finished. I had been waiting to decide what type of coffee table I wanted for the room and this week I decided to just buy a big sheet of plywood and make one myself. I love the oversized round coffee tables out on…

Spicy White Cheddar Popcorn

I have just recently been introduced to the greatness of making your own popcorn! For some reason, I always thought it would be so much more work to pop my own, and then I actually got kernels, read what to do, and it’s basically just as easy as making the regular old microwave popcorn. Duh,…

    I’m not sure what I love more… the idea of cheddar popcorn (YUM!), or the incredible photos you’ve taken of it!

DIY Daybed Cushion

I know I say this all. the. time. but this project has been in the works for so long! I’m even more of a procrastinator than normal when it comes to any project that requires precise measurements or more than 1 hour of my time. So this daybed cushion has been half finished in my…

    Well this can be a perfect relaxing place in office corner as we spend most of the time in office. Will certainly make one in the corner with a pot nearby…Green n comfortable. Thanks a lot for the detailed description. Loved it.ReplyCancel

    OMG, you did an excellent job. You nailed this project, and should never buy cushions when you are this good. Wow!ReplyCancel

Thoughts on Mother’s Day

This Sunday will be yet another Mother’s Day without my mom. And I miss my sweet mama a lot. Even more over the years in a lot of ways. But I don’t typically feel the heaviest weight of those emotions on Mother’s Day. Having a specific day that I know everyone is going to be…

    Wow thank you for sharing. I’m currently losing my Mom to cancer and I fall into feeling lonely and angry that God hasn’t given me a husband or children yet. And He might never. So yesterday was a hard day. But we still have access to joy, even though I don’t feel that way sometimes.ReplyCancel

      Oh Annie – thank you for sharing! Praying for peace and comfort for you and for your mom!ReplyCancel

    I met my now-husband at age 32, within 9 months we were living together and less than 1.5 years after meeting we were engaged and expecting! (We got engaged on a trip to St Thomas, and upon returning home from the trip, learned we were expecting.) So it can happen quickly, especially when you’re in your 30s because by then you know what you want, and also – when it’s right, it’s right.ReplyCancel

    • Caitlin McGrathWednesday, May 16, 2018 - 12:29 pm

      That’s very true! I do think things happen a lot quicker when you’re a bit older and know what you’re looking for. That’s a sweet & encouraging story! Thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel

    Wow, thank you for these thoughts on mother’s day. It really made me think.ReplyCancel

DIY House Doormat

Who doesn’t love a cute or clever doormat?! We haven’t had a doormat since moving into this house, just a rug near the shoe area out on the front porch. But now that the season has come that we’ll be coming in and out of the back door with dirty shoes from gardening and just…

  • ErikaThursday, May 10, 2018 - 3:15 pm

    This is SO clever! I’ve been needing a doormat for our back door (ours is currently really old), and I love this idea!ReplyCancel

  • GemmaFriday, May 11, 2018 - 9:51 am

    How gorgeous is this??! Such a great idea to add personality into your home before you’ve even stepped through the front door!


  • Beccy MundySaturday, May 12, 2018 - 5:37 pm

    What a fantastic idea, love it!ReplyCancel

  • MikeFriday, May 18, 2018 - 7:31 am

    Ohhhh this is SO COOL! I’ve been searching for a cool doormat for what feels like ages – I’d kinda given up on finding one, to be honest. I didn’t even think about cutting one up to a custom shape!

    Awesome project, thanks for the inspiration. 🙂ReplyCancel
