Around the House

MAKING MESSES

This is where the real messes happen as we get down and dirty and really tackle the big projects around the house.  Some of it is DIY how-to’s, while other projects involve dealing with various contracted professionals.  Either way, there is always a lesson to be learned.

HOME ON THE CHANGE

Here you can see photo tours, descriptions, and before-and-after shots of the rooms in our homes as we stumble to improve them.

CRAFTS & DECOR

This primarily includes the “smaller” decorating, craft, and organization projects around the house, like adding window treatments and picking rugs.  And some small DIY improvements.  You know, fun stuff like that.

GREEN THUMBS

At some point Katie will need to overcome her black thumbs and learn to grow something.  Erin will try, too.  This is where you’ll find those little adventures.

Katie, I found your site accidentally. Easily my favorite domain name of 2012!

I have no mutts but a little one that tests my domestiphobia daily.

I have to say this blog is two words: Bad. Ass. Its such a refreshing change from all the “my house is so perfect and I can sew and I can paint perfectly and I can use photoshop and I have just decorated my mantle for {insert current season/holiday} and looking at my blog makes you question why you’re struggling to hang curtains correctly” DIY blogs that are put there. I am so glad I happened upon your link. I will absolutely be adding this blog to my daily routine!

Aw, thanks Shavonda! I think I’ve just finally learned that I have to live here, you know? It’s not going to look like a magazine because I’m a real person with a real budget and I can’t stand throwing money away on stuff that’s just going to sit around and collect dust. I’m glad you happened upon my link, too!
