Our podcast has officially reached legal drinking age. Happy 21st, YHLHAP! And cheers to you for finding the show notes for Episode #21 of Young House Love Has A Podcast. This week we’re talking about one of the top questions we get asked pretty much constantly: how the heck does any home improvement get done with kiddos in the mix?! Well, not only have we been asked this question countless times, we’ve actually wondered it ourselves in more than a few moments of desperation. So today we’re sharing four of our favorite tactics for juggling parenting and DIY duties, while fending off the frustration of feeling like nothing’s getting done. John also fesses up to his HUGE screw up during our kitchen reno and Sherry takes a stab at a guys vs. girls Pinterest guessing game. Plus, we find a mutual appreciation for the place where hand crafts and zombies overlap.
- Since a photo of the gas line markings that washed away wouldn’t be very interesting, instead I present to you this drone pic my neighbor took of our house right after I finished hand-digging (well, shovel-digging) the areas that might’ve crossed over the gas line (there are two more trenches like that up in the front yard, and another long stretch down the side). Plus you can see why our grass desperately needs help in the watering department. Also, side yard = moss city.
- As ashamed as this photo makes me, here’s the SHIPPING CRATE FULL OF BACKSPLASH TILE that I accidentally ordered for our kitchen.
- Here’s the official Pinterest blog post about what guys and girls are searching for on Pinterest.
- Side note: their blog is called “Oh, That’s Pinteresting!” (and you know we love a pun).
- Wanna see a “barndominium?”Here’s the one that Chip & Joanna Gaines renovated on their show.
- Also, snackadiums.
Looking for some ironic (or just modern) cross-stitchery of your own?
- Here’s Sherry’s LaCroix can that now proudly hangs in our foyer (there’s also Walking Dead Daryl and some NSFW options from misfitXthreads)
- Here’s The Stitch Mill, which provides patterns like this tool one or this terrarium one. They’re only $5 or $6 each!
- And check out those cute stitched family portraits from Family Stitch on Instagram.
