DIY Terrarium Mobile

Goodness this summer is flying by.  I can’t believe it is already August!  Surprisingly for the Midwest, we really haven’t had a terribly hot summer.  Because of that,  I think it is causing this season to go by faster than normal.  Or maybe it is just because I am...

DIY Hanging Flower Box

Happy Weekend!  This week has been filled with all things summer.  Grilling out, iced coffee, and trips to the farmer’s market were all highlights for me. Every time I go to the farmer’s market I get the urge to buy one of their beautiful bouquets of fresh flowers.  They...

DIY Herb Planter

My mom and I were talking the other day and both shared how much we love having fresh herbs around to cook with.  We also discussed that prices on said herbs can be so expensive!  So later in the week, my husband and I decided that what better time...

Easy DIY Easter Egg Art Prints

Easter is quickly approaching!  Can you believe it is only a week away? I am usually not one to go all out for holidays when it comes to decorating. (Well, with Christmas being the exception!)  In fact, I wasn’t planning on decorating for Easter at all this year.  But...

DIY Text Wall Art

On a recent trip to Ikea I decided on a whim to buy a few 8×10 frames.  I have heard so many great things about Ikea’s frames and decided at 5 dollars a piece I could spare the 20 dollars and give them a try.  I actually didn’t have...

5-Minute DIY Heart Candles

Ok, I have to admit that I have been bah-humbuging a bit about Valentine’s Day this year.  Some years I love it, some years I’d rather skip it all together.  This year was turning into the latter…until I found these. Spanish conversation hearts!!!!!!! Yes, yes, I know this is not...

Instagram Wall

Hey everyone!  Ali here, from Gimme Some Oven, and today I’m stoked to finally (3 months late!) be sharing all about my new Instagram wall. As some of you might know, I moved into a new loft in December and remodeled a new white kitchen, which I adore.  But...

Friday Favorites: Valentine’s Day!

Hey guys!  Hope your week has been great!  I know at least in Kansas City the seasonal depression has hit hard.  It’s very cold here and has lately made me want to just curl up under a blanket and never leave the house!  As far as I am concerned...

Three Simple Ways to Get Organized!

Warning, this post is not going to be my most glamorous post!  This week began the task of organizing my laundry closet.  Because Tanner and I live in a loft we don’t have a lot of storage space.  We need to use what we have wisely!  In our living...

Friday Favorites: 2014 Planners

It seems like everyone is on a quest to becoming more organized this year.  I have had requests for a planner round-up, which in turn made me realize that I should probably be getting myself a planner!  As I mentioned in this post, I am not a naturally organized...

How to Store Plastic Grocery Bags

As the new year begins it’s time to finally tackle some of my less than par organizational skills.  For the most part I would call myself a “clean” person.  Our house is normally only about a 10 minute speed clean away from being “guest ready” and I tend to...
