A New Entry for Friends (+ an Ace Giveaway!)

Last week, we shared with you this DIY bench – but it wasn’t for us. Today (and a handful of working weekday nights later), we’re excited to share with you its new, finished home! For the last year, you know that we’ve been happily working with Ace Hardware to complete projects around our home, and […]

Filling the Gap + an Art Filled Giveaway!

Even though we’ve been knee deep in exterior upgrades, our living room has been coming along, too!

Unfortunately for us, the normalcy isn’t too close in our future, but fortunately for our […]

The Print Shop is Live! + a Giveaway
