  • DIY Faux Floral Art

  • Did the words "faux floral" stop you in your tracks? Are you wondering if I've gone bonkers? Well good news. I'm not (officially) bonkers and I'm super glad I stopped you in your tracks. Why? Well, because most faux flowers are super ugo and make me think of tacky 90's fake plants littering houses collecting dust on top shelves and above the kitchen cabinets. So you can bet when I heard [...]
  • Easy Art for Animal Lovers

  • If you've read more than two of my posts you'll likely know two things about me, 1) I super love my dogs, and 2) I also super love bright bold colours. So when my little sister, aka Dr. Jenn from Minden Animal Hospital, asked if I would help out and make some art for her clinic, I jumped at the chance. Why? It allowed me to combine THREE things I love, dogs, painting, and painting with bright bo[...]
  • Guest Room Update: Progress & Rug Choices

  • I have been one busy little bee! Fueled entirely by mini-eggs:) The guest room painting is DONE! Oh wait.  I lied a bit.  The painting isn't done done.  It's almost done.  I still need one more coat of Jo Jo Whitewash on the door.  But otherwise, it's done:) The green, PARA's Guest List, is puuuurfect.  It's light and bright.  It's cheery but calming and just oh so pretty.  The old ottoman that[...]
  • Book Review: The Marriage of Opposites by Alice Hoffman

  • I really do try to celebrate the small things in life.  One of those small things is being an advance reader for Simon and Schuster:) Having a new book arrive is such a treat! I've been introduced to books I would not have picked up for myself, which is always fun. When the most recent book arrived I had high hopes.  I've heard great things about Alice Hoffman, but never read any of her books. [...]
  • Perfectly pretty prints from @Minted

  • Did you see the full DIY den reveal? I am just in heaven.  It's perfectly pretty without being too over the top girly.  But what really brings the entire room together is the art.  Three perfectly pretty prints from Minted. When I saw the Peony print, I knew instantly it was for me.  One, I love peonies.  Two, the shades of purple and pink coordinate PERFECTLY with the room (I love when thi[...]
  • DIY Den: The BIG Reveal! with @ParaPaints

  • Three cheers for paint! Seriously.  It's amazing what paint can do to transform a space.  Going from boring beige walls and a brown (and chipped) floor, to fresh barely pink walls, fresh white trim, and those supercalifragilisticexpialidocious purple floors just make ALL the difference. Other than being a long project, it was rather simple and done very much on the cheap frugal.  Let's just rem[...]
  • Rubber Ducky...You're the one

  • It's the first love song I knew the words to:) You can't help but smile when you hear it (or sing it!). Ever since the bathroom got a new mirror I've wanted to add something to the wall behind it. I wanted something subtle because the room is quite long and narrow and I still want your eye to travel to the window, not freeze on a large picture or colourful piece of art. I also wanted s[...]
  • Living Room Feature Wall

  • Remember my Jazzleberry Jam Pink living room? Well...it finally got a feature wall. When the room got painted, I whipped some photos and art up on the walls, knowing regardless of how much thought I put into it I would change it anyway. I'm quirky like that. So a few weekends ago everything came off the walls, the holes got filled, sanded, and re-painted. I had a blank (hot pink) slate. [...]
  • Mona Lisa #Selfie {an art project}

  • I just finished a super fun (and easy art project) for a friend and I am hesitant to let it go, I love it so much! A few weeks ago while out to lunch with my friend Isabelle, she asked me if I was up for a project. Naturally, my answer was YES!! When Isabelle bought her house, she found this Mona Lisa print in her basement. When I started to pull apart the frame, matting, and print, I discove[...]
