That pesky thing called maintenance {air conditioner filters}

As a homeowner, every once in awhile I figure out something that causes me to have an "ah-ha" moment. Or more like an, "Oh dur, I'm such an idiot" moment. One of the reasons I blog is to share all my mishaps as a clueless homeowner with you so that hopefully I can help at least one person out there not make the same mistakes I've made. No need for the both of us to touch a hot stove, right? Learn from my cluelessness. Over the last several months Ben and I have been figuring out the blasted air conditioner unit. It really amazes me that I'm even allowed to purchase a home. … [Read more...]

Decor with Bling; rhinestone dress & laptop bag tutorial

Nothing is safe from bling at my house. N.O.T.H.I.N.G. My daughter's favorite dress got some sparkly bling: Even my super boring laptop bag got a Pick-Me-Up fit for a tween. {Get it? A star for House of Hepworths? No need to point out how much of a dork I am. I am already well aware.} Like the cute rhinestone embellishments I added to my daughter's dress and my laptop bag?    Here's how I did it. I started with a Rhinestone Starter Kit from Silhouette. These images were found at the Silhouette Store. I hate wasting my supplies, so I crammed them … [Read more...]

The difference 2 years makes

Two years ago when we bought our home I cringed when I opened the door to welcome you in. These days, not so much. Welcome to my home. It's still not perfect and I still have loads more I want to do, but when I see these before and after pictures I can't help but smile and pat myself on the back. In case you are curious, yes, I've changed a few things since I snapped this picture. The house is always in a state of flux. My favorite thing? I'd say the paint and moulding. … [Read more...]
