INTERIOR Design Inspiration

Kevin_Instagram

I follow a sweet gal named Tiffini on Instagram and she posted a really great quote over there on Friday. It read, “The more important a call or action is to our soul’s evolution, the more resistance we will feel toward pursuing it.” It rolled up into my feed at the Perfect time. I was […]

Did I tell you Kevin started playing with the worship team at our church last Fall? Yep. He usually plays at church every other Sunday, and I can’t tell you how full I feel for him as he grows his relationship with God through music every day. We were invited to a casual dinner for […]

FELLOWship

Lake_Water_Sign

Can you see them out there? It’s Kevin and our friend (and avid fisherman), Tommy. Apparently misty mornings like the one we had today make for the best fishing, so Kev bundled up and met him by the dock as soon as he arrived. I rushed out there to snap that photo of them as […]

Halloween 2012

Lettered_Cottage_Halloween_2

Our yesterday started with a little of this… …and ended with a whole bunch’a that! It was a creative kind of day, and we hope you and yours had a very happy Halloween 2012, too! PS- We won’t know about the results of Kevin’s praise band audition for a couple of weeks, but we’ll be […]

Searching For Purpose

Thanks to all the folks that weighed in on yesterday’s blog post. We’ve decided what we’re going to with that little corner in the sunroom and I can’t wait to surprise you with pictures of it when we’re done! And speaking of work spaces in the works- Kev’s office is already coming together, little by little, […]

My Family’s Favorite Spaghetti Recipe

Spaghetti_Recipe_Lettered_Cottage

I will forever cherish the time I’ve been able to spend with my mom and dad this month. This isn’t the house I grew up in, but wherever they are will always feel like home to me. We’ve referred to our family kitchen as “Katie’s Kitchen” since I was a little kid, and my family’s favorite spaghetti recipe has […]

Guest Bedroom/Home Office Update – Time To Paint!

Guest_Bedroom_Pictures

While Kev and I have been up to our eyeballs in Christmas articles (HGTV.com likes ‘em early), Brian the Carpenter has been hard a work on the closets, crown, and base boards in Kev’s office/our guest bedroom… It’s been so fun to see everything come together, and witnessing teachable moments  between he and his son […]

Flea Market Style – Summer 2012

Flea_Market_Style_Magazine_2012_5

A winter-white sky presides over what promises to be another crazy day of mess-making and picture-taking, here at TLC. Those two things seem to go hand and hand around here, lately. We’ve been working on a bunch of Fall-themed decorating idea articles for HGTV.com, so my office is currently acting as a photo studio, and we’re […]

How To Shoot Photography

Josh-And-Kevin

I had an insanely fun weekend shooting all kinds of Valentines Day craft and decor ideas with a super-talented stylist friend of mine (posts full’a pics coming soon!) and Kev, and his friend, Josh, spent most of the weekend working away on their soon-to-be-launched photography/Photoshop video training class website. (‘video’, meaning: they’ll be teaching through […]

DIY Mirror

DIY_Mirror

Hey there! Kev here. Like Lay mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’m here to show you how I made the sunburst mirror for my Mom and Dad’s porch. Thanks to Kate’s tutorial, it was really easy to put together. First, I went to Hobby Lobby to pick up three different-sized wood floral rings. Unfortunately Hobby Lobby […]

Waiting To Exhale

Me: Guess what? You: Chicken butt. Me: No, really, guess what? You: I give up. What? Me: I haven’t seen my Mr. in almost two months. You: Holy guacamole! Where’s he been? Me: Rock n’ rollin’. You: But I thought you were afraid of being alone at night? Me: Oh yeah, I’m a panicker for […]
