Well…some of you may have missed the announcement on Facebook, we found out last week we are expecting our 3rd BOY into our family!!  We were kinda pulling for a girl, but…we are thrilled to expand our little boys club at the Propes home.  So, with this also comes some design projects and rearranging to take place.  We live in a 4 bedroom home with the 4th bedroom being utilized as our playroom which means that two of  the kiddos will have to bunk up.  The obvious choice was to pair up the two older lil’ dudes and give the baby his own space…and so the transformation begins.  

My designs always start with some sort of inspiration, in this case I was drawn to some adorable Ralph Lauren polka dot sheets at Homegoods.  They are white with a blueberry colored dot, that I paired with some granny smith apple green pillow shams.

The sheets are queen sized and are too big for a twin bed, so I will take on a little DIY project, cut them down and transform them into duvet covers.  Ok, so now I have the colors, now what????  Well I stumbled across an adorable art print from Pottery Barn Kids that had a vintage surf feel.



Seeing that we just returned from the beach, it seemed quite appropriate.  Brandt, our 3 year old, LOVED the beach and seeing surf boards…so that is where the theme started to evolve.  I also thought this would be a great theme to grow with them for quite some time.  Well…here it is…the beginning process of design.  We’ll see where it goes from here??  


1. Custom wall paint detail 2. Surf Wall Art – Pottery Barn Kids 3. Oilo Pendant Light – Layla Grace 4. California Wall Plaque – Pottery Barn Teen 5. Leaf Bed Canopy – Ikea 6. Wall Letters – Etsy 7.

More “NEW” beginnings coming SOON!!  We have been working hard on our **NEW** blog design for a while now and we are so excited to share it with you!!  Stay tuned…we should be rolling it out within the week if all goes as planned (;

Hello, hello!!  Ok…so as you all my know I am a design chick…graphics, parties and blogging all came from me needing an outlet to express my love of design and creativity…any kind of creativity…any sort of design.  With having two small kids graphics came naturally and seemed to be a great fit since I was somewhat homebound…and the parties???  I have always LOVED to plan a good party!!   This all has evolved into a look into my daily life…this is what I love and am so passionate about  but I have to admint my FIRST love is interior design and my DREAM would be to land a spot competing on HGTV’s Design Star.  A few years ago I submittted an audition tape to HGTV’s Design Star…I think it was season 2?  Well, not sure if my tape ever reached the hands of a casting director but I do know that I was not a contestant…LOL!!  Although, I was not a contestant on season 2, I am no stranger to HGTV…my start with Project Nursery came from submitting Brandt’s nursery on HGTV’s Rate my Space.  Some of my designs have even graced the front page of HGTV’s Rate my Space…most recently my holiday decor seen HERE.

A few of my gal pals from design school (my original fan club – Erlinda, Dawn & Heather) have wanted me to resubmit an audition tape.  Well, last year my “fan club” wanted me to give it another go but I was literally 9 months preggers and could not bear the thought of seeing myself on camera in that condition…yikes!  So that brings me to today…whew…season 6 is now accepting auditions!!!  The deadline to submit is January 15th…so that means 9 days to get my booty in gear and get some footage of this chick on film!!!  Wanna see some of my design work?  Click HERE and HERE…oh and HERE too!!!  So if you don’t see me for a few days…that is what I am up to (:  Wish me luck!!! xoxo~rebecca

So last week was a wash for posts…sorry ):  Lots going on in the Propes home in preparation for Blake’s 1st birthday party.  I will have so much to share towards the end of this week…the party was a blast!!  Stay tuned….but in the meantime here is a little peek on a DIY project I tackeld among all of the party planning and  orders I am knee deep in.

I was inspired by my blogging friend Amanda of Shindig…she made a fun advent calender and and I wanted to do the same.  I changed it up just a tad by adding fabric scraps along with the ribbon.  Ok…chicks…super easy…if you can use a pair of scissors and tie a knot…you are golden!!!  I busted out my pinking shears and went to work….I haven’t touched these babies since design school!! (;

Here are the deets:

Supplies: pinking shears, scissors, fabric scraps, ribbon, mini knitted ornaments – found at Target for $2 each, and twine

Time: 30 min

1) Cut twine to desired length 2) cut 6″ & 8″ pieces of ribbon and fabric with pinking shears and regular scissors.  3) tie your cut pieces on to the twine…I place an ornament every 4-6 pieces. 4) hang in desired location

Really…is it that simple???  YES!!!  I used the same colors that would coordinate with the rest of my holiday decor.  If I had more time, these fabulous-fresh-fun stands of fun would be all around my house!!!

Oh…I almost forgot…the advent part…the ornament that I purchased are little knitted stockings and mittens…perfect to stick a little note from santa or treat in!!  I purchased 12…to signify the “12 days of Christmas”  and… to lessen the amount of candy my kids receive in a given period of time (;  If you want to add numbers to your advent calender… you can do that too, I left mine blank.

I aslo used ribbon in colors that coordinated with the rest of my holiday decor.  So here it is!    I hope this inspires you to go and make your own version!!

p.s. This may even make an apprerance in Blake’s party!!

So fun and festive…tee-hee!!    Ok…as soon as I get pics back I will show ya’ll what I have been up to!! xoxo~rebecca

Well, my tree is not up yet…we get a real tree so I try to hold off just a little even though I am coming unglued with excitement to get it up and decorated.  For the first time EVER I am considering a fake tree (thanks to my friend Leah) just so I can get the house holiday dazzled early (;

The only thing I have managed to dress up with holiday decor so far is my fireplace mantel.  It is now officially complete!!  Woohoo!!  Oh…of course there are miscellaneous festive do-dads, trinkets, and what-nots throughout mi casa, but until it is complete I will not be snapping any pics of those areas.  So yesterday I shared with ya’ll a peek at the DIY glitter trees I attempted from the  tutorial I saw over at eighteen 25 and the my FREE Holiday Print HERE.  Today we are expanding…the glitter trees are complete, the fireplace is dunzo and there is a new holiday print available.  This one is super cool…I apologize I can’t offer it as a freebie );  reason being, it is customizable…but…I am offering it on special thru this week for $5.00 for the digital file!!!

Inspired by one of my favorite ALL-TIME fabric patterns I needed to create something utilizing this fun, classic check…houndstooth!!  LOVE IT!!    Here is view at my completed fireplace project and the NEW print available!!
