I hang a lot of artwork in our home. There are two ways I like to do it: with those little Command Picture-Hanging Strips OR with drywall anchors and screws (for the bigger, more awkward stuff). Today I wanted to share with you a very quick little video I made on how I use masking tape to hang my artwork evenly & simply on our walls.Continue reading
A little while ago, we decided to move our TV from our living room down to the basement. It was actually my hubby’s idea, and at first I was uber skeptical, but now I’m so happy that we did it! The main floor is quieter at “quiet time” (that magical hour when Baby B naps and the other two girls play video games), and it’s also a lot easier to keep the main floor tidy. HOORAY!
Our TV used to be on our wall opposite our fireplace in the living room, and I arranged some art around it to create a gallery wall. When we moved the TV, I had to re-work the wall and add in some more art. The solution? Some easy DIY map art with a canvas I already had and some free printables.Continue reading

We had our first snowfall last week. This is always a bittersweet day for us up here in Alberta, Canada. We sigh because we realize we need to dig up our old winter boots, make sure the snow tires are on our car and brace ourselves for freezing weather. But then we remember how beautiful and exciting winter is up here. Not only is our landscape transformed into a frozen white wonderland, but there is never ending entertainment that comes with the snow. My dad and Little A immediately made the first snowman of the year last week – they had a blast! Winter is long and cold up here in Canada, but it’s also so very beautiful and fun!

Gallery walls are a really popular home decor element right now and I have to admit – I LOVE THEM! As a graphic designer and a lover of all forms of art, finding a whole boatload of photos and art, mixing them together, and spreading them out on a wall appeals to me in a big way. When we moved out of our little Garage House into Our DIY House, I finally had the wall space to try my hand at creating gallery walls and it’s official: I’m a total gallery wall addict. I’m foaming at the mouth to do more! Today, I want to share with you some things that I’ve learned so far about planning and hanging up a gallery wall, some gallery wall tips, and some gallery wall layout ideas. I also had an idea to create some printable artwork packs in my Etsy shop that you can download and create your own instant gallery wall in a snap! I’ll share the details below.
