Made By Mary necklace

IMG_9878

Ever since we got married, I’ve been wanting a bar necklace with our wedding dates on them but I have never gotten around to doing it. Well, I finally did and I’m so happy with it!

I ordered my bar necklace from Made By Mary, https://www.madebymary.com/. I had my choice of doing our date normally or in roman numerals. I chose to do the roman numerals.

I ordered the 18″ length but now having it on hand, I’m going to order an extender for it. I wanted it to hang just a little lower, right now it just sits too close to my neck and almost feels like a choker.

Shipping was fast, ordered to in hand within under a week! Her packaging is beyond beautiful! I think your packaging can make a huge impact on your customer.

I’m sure this won’t be the last purchase I make with Made By Mary!

Canvas Champ review

IMG_9819

For my birthday, my parents gave me money to put towards a canvas I’ve been wanting for my bedroom for a while. I was originally going to go with Pro Digital Photos because I love their quality but when looking up their canvas pricing, they were crazy expensive. My second pick was Inkley’s but they were about the same in price and they do have promotions every once in a while but even with the promotion, it still would have been expensive.

I started looking online for affordable but good quality canvas. I found a few blogs that had multiple reviews on different companies. One that stood out to me was Canvas Champ. They had good reviews and great pricing. Most of the reviews said that it did take a couple weeks to receive them since they’re shipped from India but I was in no hurry. I was able to add $150 worth of product to my cart and use a promo code to take it down to $125 and free shipping. I was able to order 1-30×40, 1-20×30, 1-14×24, 1-16×20, and 2-8×10. They turned out great. All the corners were sharp and folded well, all the canvas were pulled tight and what I loved is that they put a mdf board behind the canvas to make them solid, no accidental holes!

Dining room makeover

My current home style that I love is Farmhouse. I have slowly been working my home décor towards that so everything will eventually match. When it came time to pick out a new dining table, I wanted to stay with that trend. After browsing online and furniture stores in town, I only found a few tables I liked. Some Josh didn’t like while the others were way too expensive. I knew with this table that I didn’t want to go cheap, I wanted something that would last years, not something I’d throw away after two years because it was falling apart. I follow a few local furniture makers on Instagram and remembered that they got most of their furniture plans from Shanty 2 Chic. I got on their website and started pulling table plans. We sat down together and talked about what style table top and legs we wanted. We ended up going with their Industrial Farmhouse Table. We opted not to do the bench at this time but we will most likely build it once we have kids that will sit on it. Continue reading

The past few days after installing our gas range and building our dining table, I have this bug to update the last few things I want done to our home. Of course, my bank account is saying quite the opposite. One of the biggest projects left is our Master Bedroom. We have a nice set right now, no more than three years old but I’m wanting something a little more glamorous while having that cozy and farmhouse feel.  Our master bedroom has been lacking in everything since we moved in almost two years ago because my main focus is the areas that our guests see. Currently my mind set is do everything that I want to do to the home because once the kids start coming, nothing will be updated for quite a few years. So I’ve made a list of items that we want to fix/update and this is a major one. My goal is to have this done by the new year, fingers crossed!

Although they’re not pictured, I also linked the bedding I would use.
