In our small apartment, it can be difficult to find space, so I decided to utilize an existing frame on a table to make this DIY framed web card holder that would be easy to store away for next season or repurpose for other items.

Not so long ago - four years, to be exact - we moved into the Curbly House with one room complete. It was Ayla's room, and it was dunzo, styled, and cozy because she was 3-years-old and going through the double-whammy transition of moving into a new house, and having a new baby brother (all in the span of 10 days!).
Her room was adorable and comfortable, and...
I write this next sentence every year, and every year I believe it more: if buying gifts could be my full time job, I would be the happiest person on the planet.
I love everything about gift giving. The rituals, the sentiments, the experience of finding the perfect thing for the perfect person. It's a total thrill and my total Kryptonite.
This holiday season, we partnered with Minted to create a set of gifts perfect for the people you love most. Your man, your woman, your boo, your bestie, your bae. They're all accounted for in this collection.
So, grab your warm beverage of choice, settle in under your coziest blanket, and have a look at these gorgeous gifts.
One of the things we love to do year after year during the holiday season is wreath-making! It's a relaxing and fun way to get into the festive spirit the whole family can enjoy. This year, we leaned toward our usual Scandinavian-inspired look, but using found and foraged materials. Sometimes, there is so much beauty in our own backyards or neighborhoods, if we just take the time to explore!
What do you do when you want a Christmas tree and an advent calendar, but you live in a tiny space? You make an advent calendar out of paper and and it becomes your tree, that's what!

When the holidays roll around, I usually break out my glue gun and come up with a few easy winter projects to tackle. Today though, I'm branching out from the materials I almost always use and picking up a hand saw instead. With a bit of careful measuring and a handful of cuts, I made this hanging wood Christmas tree shelf perfect for storing small gifts and holiday odds and ends.
I've always had a soft spot in my heart for melt beads, often known by brand names Perler, Hama, Fuse, Melty, Nabbi & Pyssla beads. But after seeing a darling greeting card made with melt beads, that soft spot turned into a bit of an obsession. Their inherent pixilated, cartoon-y effect would be perfect for kiddos' birthdays and baby shower cards, right?? Since realizing this, I've been binging on Pinterest ever since. In addition

Today we're sharing ten DIY decorating ideas that are cheap or even free using things you probably already have lying around the house.
I recently had the opportunity of touring an "idea house." The property, a charming 1920's bungalow, belongs to and is maintained by a local family-owned company called Bachman's. The idea house is near their flagship store on Lyndale Avenue in south Minneapolis and is maintained as a landmark to celebrate the family's ancestors who lived in the home, conducting business just a few hundred feet away. Although the company is known primarily as a premier garden center, it also offers home decor items a-plenty. They
Some of the best makeovers out there can be found in interior designers' portfolios. But there's another avenue to mine, and that's portfolios of professional home stagers. Jill Ball is a home stager whose motto is "minimal design, maximum impact." If you check out
