I think it’s time for another basement room reveal! How about it?
If you’re new here, I’m slowly working my way around to posting pictures of our house. It’s nothing fancy, hence the name – The Krampy Shanty. In fact, it’s like the opposite of ‘fancy’ since we bought this house as a foreclosure for $49k in 2014. It was (surprisingly) move in ready, but we did some changes upstairs to add value, along with finishing out most of the basement! We’ve put about $19k into these renovations and doubled our finished square footage.
I revealed our new playroom a few weeks ago. By far the biggest and best addition to our new space! And now it’s time for our master bedroom reveal! Continue reading
If you’ve poked around the blog recently, you’ve probably seen something like this:
Cara’s been posting her bullet journal spreads for a few months now, so I thought I’d join in. The beauty of the bullet journal system is that you can make it whatever you want, and whatever will work best for you. Continue reading
I’ve had lots of people ask what my bullet journal spreads look like after I’ve written in them, so I decided to make a post with my completed April spreads so you can see them for yourself!
I’m a few days late getting these posted, but here are my May bullet journal spreads! I’m continuing with my adorable little penguin theme for my monthly page dividers. Later this month we’ll celebrate the twins’ second birthday!
April showers typically bring May flowers, but not this time. This time they’re bringing rainboots, which totally makes more sense… or at least just as much sense.
I just recently finished up my first bullet journal. It didn’t take me long at all, but mostly because I used it for a little bit of everything to get my feet wet. I experimented with designs, fonts, layouts, and which spreads I found most useful to me… habit trackers, monthly spreads, weeklies, and so on. Not to mention the countless pages devoted to Cherish and Liam drawings… my favorite pages!!! Continue reading
I have been eyeing a family growth ruler for some time now, as a fun way to track our kids’ growth throughout the years. I thought it would be nice to have it on a plank of wood as opposed to a door or wall, so that we could be sure and take it wherever we move to next.
I decided to make my own… mostly because I just didn’t love any of the font choices or layouts I found, but saving on the cost was definitely an added bonus too! Most of these I’ve found on Etsy range between $50-70, with costs that stack up quickly for adding extra names and details. I was able to make mine for less than $20, using a larger piece of wood even. Continue reading
I love Instagram. If you follow me (on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook) you know this. I post lots of pictures of my life (mostly Nike), and that’s really fun for me.
But the best thing about Instagram is that it’s a little window into someone else’s world – sometimes even on the other side of the world. I love seeing the diverse ways that Instagram inspires people to create.
Here’s a list of my 15 favorite Instagrammers:
1. @munichandthemountains: Swiss alps, enough said.
You might remember my limited success (i.e. compete failure) with gardening last year. That was partly due to my own laziness and partly to a severe lack of planning. It was essentially an afterthought one weekend in May. Continue reading
