Some of these projects are super easy, and you can always look up the basic stitches on YouTube (that's how I learn almost every new skill!).

This year, a group of Curbly contributors and editors got together to create a series of DIY decor and entertaining projects using that iconic symbol of the season: the pumpkin. We'll be sharing our creations for the Curbly Pumpkin Challenge each day this week. Happy Fall.

I'll admit it: I don't really like carving pumpkins. I always have grand plans, but by the time you head to the patch, select just the right one, gorge on popcorn balls, look for the carving tools, spread the newspaper, and begin the epic cleanout process...I'm kinda over it. Continue Reading

This house tour is a long time coming. We've officially been in our "finished" house for one year, and we thought we'd celebrate with a big old fashioned house tour.

The problem was, I couldn't find a stool that I liked that was the appropriate size and height. Before sketching up a design to make one from scratch, I thought a trip to the thrift store might be in order. Hey, you never know, right? When I spottedContinue Reading
