sugarbeecrafts You guys, the craft studio is starting to take shape, eek!! #sneakpeek Saturday is work day around here, and we're crossing lots of the list - painting trim (what else?!), installing drawer pulls, tile backslash, sink installation, garage clean out, and putting together these storage cubes (that I grabbed on sale months ago from @michaelsstores). Big thanks to friends who came and helped put these together! #BuildingBeyelerHollow #arewedoneyet?! 1d

sugarbeecrafts Sometimes the garage sale powers-that-be throw something awesome at ya - - - I am giddy over these metal filing drawers, I wish you could see their awesomeness in person!! I have no idea what we'll use them for, but that's irrelevant, because they're so cool (also, #diy rustic gray wood flooring, #sneakpeek) #greatfind #garagesale #bargainhunter 2d

sugarbeecrafts What what, we signed our house papers today - that means we moved from construction loan mode into a regular real home loan mode - - so technically our home is a home, not a construction site - cause for an after-signing celebratory lunch date #friday #lunchdate #alfresco {and check out those super cool free sunglasses I'm sporting, swag from @snapconf last year #stylin} 2d

sugarbeecrafts When house building goes wrong: true story, last night while taking pics of this blog project at the new house, in another room a knife gets dropped through my 12 year olds foot {shudder} - urgency care visit and 3 stitches later, he's good to go. Nothing's dull in self-building!! I think this is the first major injury incident since we started, so we've been pretty lucky! I thought I'd share the flower (well , weeds!?) picture instead of a picture of the foot, you're welcome ;) 2d

sugarbeecrafts I haven't done #fridayintroductions in forever and ever, so here we go.... I'm Mandy, I blog at #SugarBeeCrafts, and I'm the type to paint a chalkboard wall even when I hear they're "out" {yep, #sneakpeek, chalkboard wall is curing as you read this!} - - - we are currently building our own home on acreage (like for real, DIY, grab a hammer) cause we're crazy, and I have worn the same paint clothes (complete with giant hole in the rear) daily for months. But I'm excited to say we can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Then I can get back to crafting my life away We have 4 kiddos and love living life here in the midwest. 3d

sugarbeecrafts This. Is. Happening. {#chalkboardwall} - - - A few months ago I read an article that said chalkboard walls were so out for 2015--- but if chalkboard is wrong, I don't wanna be right!! I've been dreaming of one forever, so I was sure to work it into the house plan. Framed out and ready to go! #geterdone #BuildingBeyelerHollow 3d
  •   hillfamilyhappenings We have a whole wall the length of our hallway that is a chalk wall! So not out!!!! 3d
  •   corinnea I've had one for four years. I love seeing what my guy will draw next. 3d
  •   thepottersplace Who cares what is in and out. If you love it (and I do) then do it!!!! 3d
  •   lorib1231 I love that stuff! I want to chalkboard everything in my lifetime!! 3d
  •   lorib1231 *life 3d
  •   sweetmama_2 OhNo @sugarbeecrafts - I'm totally out of style then! Our Littles have LOVED & USED our chalkboard door {DAILY} for years & years. #IDontWantToBeRight 3d
  •   adventurelog That is going to be so fun!! 3d

sugarbeecrafts Who here has their garden in?? we have been a little preoccupied (something about building your own house and all) but my kiddos have been working away helping grandma - they've spent the week building garden boxes and putting in flowers and veggies. Did you know that Tree Top is teaming up with KidsGardening.org - they help fund community garden projects, love that! Cause garden-grown = awesomeness #raisinggoodapples #ad #garden #homegrown 5d
  •   thequickjourney Not me, but we will soon!! 5d
  •   mae_and_co I'm getting mine in this week - luckily I was late this year because we have a big hail storm that would have demolished anything planted! 5d
  •   newlywoodwards Just started ours. 5d
  •   craftinessisnotoptional I wish! This drought is making me rethink one. 5d
  •   onauntmildredsporch Only in my greenhouse so far except for peas and onions. 5d

sugarbeecrafts This may be a boring pic, but it tells of something super exciting - isn't it the perfect craft room sink?! As we designed our house, I had a few specific things I really wanted, and sink in the craft room was one of them. The idea evolved to be a washtub basin that we're retro fitting to function as a sink. In the works!! #BuildingBeyelerHollow #arewedoneyet #diyahouse 5d

sugarbeecrafts Our driveway is 1/4 long - maybe in 20 years it'll be beautifully tree-lined in perfection. Hoping these free twigs (thank you, earth day program at school) will fulfill all their mighty dreams 🌳🌳🌳 - - - spend a family night yesterday planting sticks and hoping for the best 6d
  •   onauntmildredsporch I planted twigs like that and actually got some serious trees out of them! It took a while but out of 10 trees, 3 are really hardy. One was taken down because it was a nuisance and one was hawthorn and just too dangerous with its crazy spikes. The other 5 didn't make it. But for free, I was impressed! 6d
  •   countrygallives Awesome family project 6d
  •   sugarbeecrafts @onauntmildredsporch good to know, there's hope! 6d
  •   annethorne80 The conservation dept will give you free trees to plant. My dad gets some each year. I think they give you 25 each of whatever they offer that you want. Check it out! 5d
  •   itsgr82smile Awesome!!!! Hope they will grow fast and beautifully!!! 5d
  •   kjolly Great photo 5d
  •   sugarbeecrafts @annethorne80 yep, we've done that too! R had about a third from last year's bunch survive, so that's better than nothing! 5d
  •   agirlandagluegun Perfect shot! And it's not even in a bathroom! 5d

sugarbeecrafts When I think @countrychiccottage, I think Mason Jars - Angie is the queen of jar crafting! She's one of my blog friends I've known the longest - way back to when we both competed in the same season of So You Think You're Crafty (true story! I am super weak for blog craft competitions - I love them all!) - - for country and chic, head over and check out her feed 6d

sugarbeecrafts This may not be an exciting pic to you, but I'm giddy about it - when I left the basement at the new house was piled so high with building supplies and junk that you couldn't even walk through it - and now look! Maybe I should go out of town more often?! #BuildingBeyelerHollow #childlabor 1w
