Replacing our home’s windows was a top priority when we bought our house – almost 3 years ago (yes, we are still at it).
We decided to install all new construction windows but, save some greens by installing them ourselves. Well, where does one start with installing new windows? By removing the old ones first. This is how to do it!
Make an adorable, cut & dress-up, unisex doll, that stands on its own (and is sturdy enough to hold actual jewelry), using a pizza box.
Do you remember those dress up dolls we were cutting off of paper and had all sorts of cute outfits? They were pretty and elaborately designed but were not very sturdy and consequently, they didn’t last long. I made a much sturdier and larger version for The Cute – and didn’t cost a thing!
Read on for the tutorial, plus 6 ideas for learning activities using this cute dress up doll.
Made new art for our walls. Literally – tongue in cheek – ART, with a touch of pop. This is my best yet and a good step towards filling what hubby calls my “army of frames”. You might have gotten a glimpse of the 2nd printable in our 15 minute accent wall post.

We are finishing up the new window of the nursery, now that we fixed the missing drip cap. Once a window is installed, the next step is to seal it properly. And the next-next step is to tackle the rest of our non-closing, non-opening, old windows.
Especially the one I caved in with my thumb. Long story but it was so rotten I pushed through the wood, with just my finger…
In this post however, we are sharing how and where to caulk the interior of newly installed windows.
We will also demonstrate a caulking gun (a good caulking gun – mom pay attention!) and how to use it. There is a LOT of information in this post so get the beverage of your choice and read on!
I am at the happy place where I – finally – have plenty of wall frames to fill with photos, art and quotes. How about a happy go lucky message that combines three of this year’s trends? And two free printables with some diamond vectors?
Something sparkly like – say – diamonds, some gold for extra glamour and a decisive touch of yellow.
