Art Today, Light Tonight! {DiaNoche Designs GIVEAWAY}

UPDATE: THIS GIVEAWAY IS CURRENTLY CLOSED I’m an art teacher so art is sorta my thing. I’m also into home decor and if my bank account was bigger, my home would certainly reflect that passion. So naturally, I’m just glowing over our latest sponsor’s luminous products. DiaNoche Designs builds these beautiful, fabric, wall hangings that double as art and lights. How clever is the concept of “art today, light tonight”!? Very. Momista Beginnings warmly welcomes you to the family. You {Read More}

Folks, there’s nothing like a quick and easy solution to adding a pop of color into a space. What makes that solution all the more juicier is when YOU actually make it! Well, spruce it up at least…all on your own.  Completing DIY projects gives me such a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.  I’m even more proud of myself about this particular project because this mirror cost me a measly couple of bucks at a garage sale.

I really do love having a handy-man {Read More}

Paper Lanterns Decor

I have 2 white, round paper lanterns in my room, each with a light inside.  I’ve always loved their look, whether in the home or when decorating a patio area, an outdoor space for a wedding or just a party.  I found this picture here at Apartment Therapy.

I came across an old wooden lamp that I used to have in my bedroom years ago.  I’m not crazy about its look now, but instead of tossing it, I know I can give it another go with a new coat of paint and a different shade.  I found this great redo at Apartment Therapy.                Check out the details here.
