Do you love to D.I.Y? Man I sure do. Almost everything in our tiny home is D.I.Y. We don’t have a fancy house or amazing cars, but we have what we need. We are a D.I.Y family. I strive to teach my children that the best things in life are free, and that you may never have everything you want, but you will ALWAYS have everything you need. We don’t shop expensive anything and we live on a low budget. If something breaks we fix it ourselves, if we want new paint on the walls, we do it ourselves. We don’t buy decorations, we make them. We’re addicted to Pinterest, HGTV, DIY Network, and Dollar Tree, and you know what, We’re HAPPY! So I wanted to share that happiness with everyone. In this unpredictable economy, you should be making every dollar count and saving where you can. We’ve learned the best way to do that is by LIVING, BREATHING, DIY!!!!!!!
I finally did it. I have been working up the courage to start a blog for sometime now because I am so passionate about the way we live as a D.I.Y family. We call it D.I.Y therapy. I’ve always been the crafty type and I love making things, but when a sudden change in health caused me to have to quit my job and we had to begin living solely on my husbands income, we had to make some financial changes. We never were an “expensive” family to begin with, but we had to become even more cheap than before. I’ve always taught my kids that its not what you want but what you already have and that you won’t always get what you want but you will always have what you need. So when things started needing repairs around the house, clothes got small tears, favorite toys were broken, and a change in decor was desired, well, we did it ourselves instead of buying new or hiring someone to fix it.
I explained all that to help you understand why we have D.I.Y therapy. Things can get really stressful as a stay at home mom, as many of you stay at home moms might know. But they become extra stressful when the kids are sick or in my case, my middle son has an Autism Spectrum Disorder, which I’ll get into in a later post. We use crafting, making(as my two year old calls it), and decorating as therapy to relax or sometimes to help my son cope with his emotions when they are on overdrive and he needs an outlet more soothing. We get our ideas for what we will do for our ” D.I.Y. of the Day” from magazines, Pinterest, Facebook, and other amazing websites we can find online. The range of ideas is endless when the internet is at your fingertips. I suggest everyone with the crafty spirit like mine get into the D.I.Y therapy. Its the best form of relaxation I’ve found and the whole family gets in on it. So not only is it relaxing, its a great way to spend time together as a family.
During the summer every year, starting 2 weeks after the last day of school, we begin summer home schooling. Some have told me that its not fair for the kids, but news flash those who hate, kids lose a lot of the information they learned the previous year over the summer. That is why we home-school during the summer, to keep the kids prepared for the next grade level and having them where they should be. With that being said, you can’t have good summer homeschooling without a good study nook. Not only does it work great for summer schooling, but it carries into the next school year as a homework corner.
I did a lot of research on the perfect homework corners and I couldn’t decide on a favorite. So below I linked the top 10 Homework Stations on my Pinterest. Learning is so important, and it should be taken seriously. Parents are obligated to enforce good study habits to ensure that their child succeeds in school. I’m very strict when it comes to their education. Homework is done right after they get home from school and I always have drink and a snack waiting for them at their tables ( I have two boys in school at the moment). I sit between them and encourage and guide them through it all.
Here is my Homework Nook!
Here are links to some great homework nooks I found on Pinterest!
Hey. It’s something everyone should know.
Meet Brittany Baton, an extraordinarily talented barrel racer from East Texas. She’s the southern girl next door with a close knit family and a drive to compete in the arena. When you’ve been riding since the ripe old age of two, you get to be pretty comfortable in the saddle. Watching Brittany run barrels you can see how natural and at home she feels there. Her advice to beginning barrel racers is to “always have an open ear for anyone that knows more than you do. Listen to their advice and try to use it because you can never learn too much.”

Welcome to Afternoon Lattes. Here you’ll find a whimsical space where i’ll share snippets of my daily life. Grab your favorite magazine and take an afternoon coffee break
Hi There! My name is Mya Marie. I am 18 years old and currently studying graphic design at a local university. I have a passion for anything in the arts, whether it be baking, design, photography, drawing you name it! I find ways to draw inspiration out of every portion of my life and incorporate it into my work.
For months I sat on my computer browsing through hundreds of amazing lifestyle blogs and then finally decided I should start my own. This is my own. Afternoon Lattes is a blog where I will share my recipes, photos, and designs with you (but mostly recipes…because i love sweets hehe).
I really want to get to know each and every one of you that ever visits my blog, having someone just look at something iv done is an amazing feeling to me ^.^
When it comes to parties, sometimes its hard to think of a centerpiece that isnt going to poke a hole in your bank account. My motto, is simple and to the point. Here is a super easy centerpiece that wont cost you
more than $3.
Small Watering Can (these can be purchased at your local dollar store for the best deal)
Carnations (10 carnations per watering pot)
Floral Foam (can also be purchased at your local dollar store, comes in packs of 10)
For this centerpiece, the party theme was red and white so I sticked with the colors. I began by taking a small red watering can and inserting a small piece (5inx3in) of floral foam
second, I trimmed the carnations down so they were all around the same size and fit in the watering pot comfortably. I then added 10 flowers into the pot.
Last, I tied a quick bow around the handle of the pot and voila! a simple quick and inexpensive centerpiece!

[Terry: The eggs remind me of a story. My daughter was about 5 and she announced that she was going to perform an experiment to see if the Easter Bunny was real. She would dye 11 eggs and leave one white. Then the Easter Bunny-if real– would color the egg. Well, with a brand-new packet of swirl-sparkle egg color, the Easter Bunny pulled this off for two years. On the last year, the EB had been working late and ended up in a CVS at 2am. The special egg was done in fingernail polish and looked like something from the Sludge Bunny. But we managed two years and that’s not bad.]

International Yarn Bombing Day: Twisted stitchers unite
International Yarn Bombing Day is here, and a large number of sew and sews in Ridgefield, Connecticut have stepped up to the plate spreading the love, and the wool, throughout their town.
I first wrote about Yarn Bombing, also known as Knitting Graffiti, back in April when a few tiny knitted swatches were found on tree branches in a nature preserve in Weston, Conn. Well, Ridgefield, the land of twisted stitchers, has taken fabric tagging to a new level.
A big shout out to Nancy O’Connell, owner of nancy o, a yarn shop and gift store in Ridgefield. Nancy drew attention to yarn handiwork in January when she got behind a project to make green and white scarves for families in Newtown following the Sandy Hook shooting tragedy. Now she’s one of the behind-the-scenes instigators for International Yarn Bombing Day, encouraging the colorful fabric tags that are marking the sidewalks of Ridgefield and the suburban landscape.
Kudos to all the Yarn Bombers out there who have added a touch brightness to the world.

M.E.S.A.W (MY EPIC SOUTH AFRICAN WAY)
This blog is about all the silly on goings in my life as business owner of handprinted homewear company mesawstudio and all the nonsensical things i manage to fit in between m.e.s.a.w. and being a new wife and the mom of the cutest pups in the world.
I hope to give insight into how and why I do what I do for mesaw and allow you to have a new appreciation for that which is hand and home made! Because well, what’s better than owning something that has more love than machine?
This blog is going to be my diary of my weekly love for art, colour, mesaw, my husband, family, friends and my dogs! Hopefully you all will become quite acquainted with them soon.
Thank you for joining in on my quest in creating art, building a business, family and a home filled with colour!

Okay so I hope that wasn’t too much detail! For my sewing challenge today I was not keen on sewing something that I could actually sell because I am still trying to get used to the high speed on this new machine. So instead I just took an off-cut and played with it and this is what I created. Its a bit random but since I am going on holiday next month I think its great!
It could also be used as cute pouch for a gift… It really is quite random.
Have a great weekend everyone! My bed awaits me. Going to enjoy a lie in tomorrow and no gym haha!

In today’s media, it’s hard to find the right women to look up to.
But look no further, here are the girls we should celebrate.
Girls who are doing, carving, painting, sawing, welding, planning, and building.
They’re not only making something, they’re making something of themselves.
Follow me on my hunt for the hardest working women around.
