Paper Valentine Mailboxes

Paper Valentine Mailboxes
Hi! It’s Ginger from Gingerly Made back to share with you a fun Valentine-themed way to dote on your loved ones and decorate your house at the same time. I am so excited about these paper Valentine mailboxes and the little goodies I get to put in them to surprise my family the week of Valentine’s. After all, it’s not always about the big gestures but the little every day things that makes our love tanks (or love mailboxes) full. [Read more…]

Rustic Valentine’s Mantel & Garland

Did you know that there is a website where you can order an envelope full of glitter and a note. Then they send it to someone that you truly despise? 

Let me introduce myself. I’m Trina Miner from A Few Miner Adjustments. By day, I am a reading teacher and by night, a blogger. I love cozy blankets, Friends reruns and anything DIY. I want to give a big shout out and thank you to Shannah for inviting me to be a monthly contributor. It is a thrill to be here with all of you! [Read more…]

Don’t Talk, Act. Throw Pillow

Quote Pillow

Hi everyone! I’m Ginger from Gingerly Made and I am so excited to be joining the Just Us Four team as a contributor. I’ll be bringing you some simple and easy to do home decor projects that I hope you love as much as I do.

I have been really inspired by the New Year. I haven’t actually made any concrete resolutions, but have a “big picture” in my mind. I want to be healthier, I want to be more present when I’m with my family, more organized, etc. All those things that we resolve to do EVERY year. To stay on track I thought I could use a reminder. Something that I saw daily and helped me to maintain my resolve. [Read more…]

Burlap and Plaid Christmas Wreath

So, November totally flew by! It was like I packaged up the Halloween decorations and now I am pulling out my snowmen and Christmas items. This blog started with the making of a wreath {and then a ton of wreathes after that} so I like to be sure and share the newest wreath I make each year for Christmas. This year, I am going for a pretty traditional and rustic feel so my burlap and plaid Christmas wreath fits in perfectly.

A simple burlap and plaid Christmas wreath is so easy to make and looks beautiful.

Easy Glitter Christmas Ornaments

We are really into Christmas and literally change the decorations in pretty much every part of our home for Christmas.  We have about five Christmas trees of different sizes around the house.  We even take down artwork and put up Christmas decorations instead.  I’d probably change out pieces of furniture too if Mathlete wouldn’t give me a hard time about it!  This year, I decided to add a little Christmas sparkle to our paper mache tree and made some super easy glitter Christmas ornaments to hang on it.

Thanksgiving Mini Pallet Art

I love decorating for Thanksgiving but often find I just don’t have the time to do a lot of decoration changes.  So, I typically focus on decorating the house for fall and then add a few Thanksgiving specific touches around the house as the holiday gets closer.  This year, I created some Thanksgiving mini pallet art to display on my mantle. It is the perfect last minute craft to toss up for Thanksgiving since it takes only a few supplies and almost no time to complete.

Chalkboard Menu {Guest Post}

I am so excited about today’s post! You see, Sarah {from Little Red Brick House} and I have something major in common: a love for chalkboard paint. Combine that with a love of staying organized and menu planning and we might as well be sisters. She is sharing her awesome chalkboard menu here today.

********************************************

I’m so, so excited to be guest posting here today on Just Us Four! Thank you so much, Shannah, for having me! My name is Sarah and I blog over at Little Red Brick House about all things creative, with an emphasis on DIY and home decor.

I have a small obsession with chalk boards. I mean, there’s one on my Wall Organizer in the front entry, one as a Calendar/Memo Board in my dining room/schoolroom (we homeschool) and now one in my kitchen! I would probably paint everything in chalkboard paint if my husband would let me. ;)

I like to plan my meals for the week ahead and I got tired of searching for my meal planning notebook every time I needed to know what was for dinner. Not to mention, an old spiral notebook isn’t very inspiring! I decided to make a chalkboard menu for the wall so I could just glance over at it when needed. It was such a simple project but it’s been super functional for me and I’m loving it so much!

Refresh Your Home with Haverty’s

I am so excited to partner with Havertys to share ideas on how to refresh your home this spring. As always, all thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.

Spring is the time of year where I always have a major itch to update things around the house.  I want fresh colors and to liven up my spaces after the long winter.  During H’s gymnastics class recently, I stopped into my local Havertys store to see what they had to offer to help me change up my space for the new season.

DIY Two Layer Stenciled Pillow

I am so excited to work with Tulip for your Home on this project.  While I was compensated for this work, all thoughts, opinions, and projects expressed here are my own. #tulipforyourhome

We are still working on the room redo we started last year as H’s 6th birthday present.  Yep…almost a full year ago we started this process and we are still.not.done.  I could go into a million reasons why but a lot of it is just plain not having enough hours in the day.  The other issue is that H has very specific thoughts and ideas about her room and I want to try and implement them in some way whenever possible.  When I had the chance to work with Tulip for your Home, I jumped at it because I thought it would be a fun way to personalize something for her room.  Using their stencils and new paint, we created a DIY two layer stenciled pillow that goes perfectly in her space. 

Super easy layered DIY stenciled pillow! #tulipforyourhome #ad

Easter Ribbon Wreath

Our front door is usually the first place you catch a glimpse of an upcoming holiday or new season.  So far this year, I have been a little slow to get a new wreath up.  My goal for Easter was to get a new wreath up before April 1st and I just barely made that goal.  My Easter ribbon wreath was finished on March 31st and I put it out on the morning of the 1st. Score!
