Welcome to Our Home

A couple of weeks ago I asked Amanda to take some pictures of Justin and me in our first home. I love memories and pictures, and wanted to have a memory of us here. Of course she took the most beautiful pictures! Here are just some and I will always keep sharing on my Instagram as well!

A little over two years married and to be honest the start was kind of bumpy. It’s a lie if people say, “when you get married everything will go away.” Lies! My problems and fears inside me were not meant for him to fix and viceversa. Culture shock was a problem too and trying to find ourselves, but being together. I am so happy to say that all of that made us grow and is nothing compared to the start. Patience, listening, communication and compromise. I don’t see myself with no one else, but you Justin. I love you.

DIY: Woven Wall Hanging


Hello my friends!

I wanted to share one of the DIYs I recently finished for my house. My first woven wall hanging.  I was very happy how it turned out because it is not that horrible to be my first one.  And it only took me like two months! HAHA.  I really wanted to make a big one, but I didn’t know how much work it will be.  I would cut so much knit and it will end up to be like less than an inch when I pull it down haha.

I know I am not showing a step-by-step on how I make this (really I didn’t know how this was gonna end up), but I will share the resources that taught me and help me through this DIY.  Of course I used an A Beautiful Mess tutorial because they are perfect and I just want my house to look exactly like theirs haha!  The two sources I used to make mine was this one and this one from A Beautiful Mess.  The basic step-by-step helped me since I was a beginner.  My husband actually built me a huge loom out of wood and nails, so you can make this yourself in whatever size you would like.  Even though mine is big loom, I can still make little wall hangings if I like (which probably will be my next one because I don’t want to make a big one in the near future haha).

I love the outcome and how the colors turned out to combine perfectly together.  I wanted to put together all my color inspirations from my main living area.  Right now we are working on turning an Ikea dresser into a buffet for our dining room area.  I can’t wait to share!


Hola mis amores!

Quería compartir con ustedes unos de los últimos DIYs que hice para mi casa.  Mi primer “woven wall hanging.” Súper contenta con el resultado ya que es mi primer y no quedo tan mal.  Y solo me tomo como dos meses! HAHA. Yo estaba empeñada en hacer uno de tamaño grande,  pero lo que no sabia era el trabajo que me iba dar.  Yo cortaba un montón de cordón de tejer y solo me hacia como menos de una pulgada cuando lo tiraba hacia abajo haha.

Yo se que no estoy enseñando un paso por paso de como hice este DIY (en verdad no sabia como iba a ser el resultado), pero compartiré los recursos que me enseñaron y ayudaron a hacer este proyectito.  Claro que use unos tutoriales de A Beautiful Mess porque ellas son perfectas y solo quiero mi casa que se vea exactamente como las bellezas de casas de ellas haha!  Los dos recursos que utilice fueron este y este directo de A Beautiful Mess.  El tutorial básico me ayudo ya que soy primeriza en este proyecto.  Mi esposo me construyo un “loom” bien grande con madera y clavos, y es algo que pueden construir de el tamaño que prefieran.  No importa que el mío sea grande, puedo hacer wall hangings de tamaño pequeño (cual tal vez será mi próximo porque no quiero hacer uno grande por un buen tiempo haha).

Me encanto el resultado y como la combinación de colores termino viéndose.  Quería poner los colores que hay alrededor de mi área de la sala.  Ahora mismo estamos trabajando en convertir un gabetero (vestidor) de Ikea en un buffet/consola para el comedor.  Ya estoy loca por compartir!


Los quiero, love you!
