Do It Yourself: Winter 2013

First, can you even get over how well our little chubs is working her angles?

Second, our feature in the Better Homes & Gardens Do It Yourself Magazine is out on newsstands right now! A handful of sweet readers starting Instagram-ing the issue once it hit their mailboxes, nearly causing our hearts to implode with excitement. We received ours last week, and we screamed with every turn of the page (all 10 of them!). You might remember when we shared our experience with the crew this past May, so we were reeling to see it all come to life, hold it in our hands, and read it over (and over) countlessly.

We’re so thankful to have this memory of our first Chicago home, and in a strange twist, it reminded us that although our current house is very much in progress, it will get there.

Big hugs to the team at Do It Yourself, and especially to Brenda, a new friend that styled our itty bitty condo so beautifully. You can pick up the Winter 2013 issue in stores now! (Excuse us while we pass out.)

    So excited to see that huge spread of you guys. How awesome! And your new place is looking great- I’m sure it must be overwhelming at times with all of the projects you are tackling but it’s so exciting to read about all the things you do (and I think your new place was beautiful from the start – it’s awesome because it’s yours and from there everything else is a bonus :-)).ReplyCancel

      Thank you, ladies!

      Rachel, thank you – very encouraging, and you’re right. Even when we look around and think, “what WERE we thinking?!”, we have to remember the potential we saw when we signed that giant stack of papers!

  • Molly S. - November 18, 2013 - 10:57 AM

    I just love your blog! You guys are doing fantastic work on the new place! I noticed you had dinosaurs on the shelves in your old place. Do you remember where you got those? They’re fantastic!ReplyCancel

    • Kim - November 18, 2013 - 11:15 AM

      Thank you, thank you!

      Cathie, so funny!

      Molly, the dinosaurs in our terrarium came from a local plant shop, Sprout (here in Chicago), but if you mean the hot pink T-Rex in the former studio, we picked that up from Hobby Lobby and spray painted it. And thank you!ReplyCancel

  • Sarah - November 18, 2013 - 11:00 AM

    Wow! Your home looks like I want my home to look. Clean lines, pops of color, yet cozy. Love that media stand. Can’t wait to pick up the issue. Brenda is pretty amazing.ReplyCancel

  • Nicole - November 18, 2013 - 12:33 PM

    I felt the same way with the Christmas spread on our old house coming out this month. Your place looks great in print! (The new place will too, I have no doubt.)ReplyCancel

    Thanks, Nicole! It’s very bittersweet seeing the old place, isn’t it?ReplyCancel
