I have a pretty strict (perhaps even militant) no-Christmas-before-Thanksgiving policy, so I'm still embracing Autumn. One indicator: These DIY wire leaves tutorial I put together for Oh So Beautiful Paper. Check it out here.

Anniversary Photo Gallery Wall + Custom Framing Discount

Anniversary Photo Gallery Wall by Mandy Pellegrin
I was compensated by Framebridge for this post.

When we moved into this house about a year ago, I vowed I wouldn't be putting up any gallery walls. Our old place was rife with them, and I was over it. Well, today, I eat my words. Thanks to Pinterest, we've been taking a photo every year on our anniversary. An opportunity to try out Framebridge's online custom framing services coincided with our our 4th anniversary earlier this month, and so it seemed appropriate to finally put all these photos on display.

Read on to see our photo tradition, hear about my Framebridge experience, see more gallery wall pics, and nab a discount code for 15% off your own custom framing project!


Emily's Bright, Kid-Friendly Living Room

Bright, Kid-Friendly Living Room by Mandy Pellegrin
Disclosure: HomeGoods provided us with a free gift card.

For the last month, my Craftcourse partner Emily and I have been scheming up a light, bright revamp of her living room. Emily had already gotten some bigger furniture pieces, but as they say, the devil is in the details - particularly with home decor. When HomeGoods offered me a gift card to make someone happy, I knew this was the perfect opportunity to get the finishing touches on Emily's living room (and of course, make her happy in the process). You can see our inspiration in this post from last month. Well, we finished 'er up this weekend, and I've got to say that I'm feeling a little jealous of her new space!
