Before &

I wanted something different for this coming year, so I decided to paint my colored vases white.

I also made these sparkly origami stars for my mantel.

Minivan Express

I found this cute idea via Pinterest & Confessions of a Home-schooler.

I think it's going to become a new family tradition.
Tonight I'm putting these on my kids pillows. When they go to get into bed tonight, they'll find them. We'll have them put on their slippers and robes, then with a cup of hot chocolate & cinnamon toast, we'll head out to look at Christmas lights in the neighborhood.

Easy! Free! Fun! Those are the best kinds of traditions!

DIY Princess Party Crowns

My daughters' birthday is this week. She will be 4. The only thing she wanted for her birthday is purple eyeshadow. Since I don't plan on replacing the carpet anytime soon, I tried to negotiate with her. I tried to talk her into a fun toy instead, but she refused. She saw a lady wearing purple eye shadow while watching YouTube hair tutorial videos (which happens to be her new favorite "show.") and ever since, she has been determined to get her hands on some purple eye shadow. Finally I was able to talk her into inviting her friends over for a party instead of the purple eyeshadow. Since it's a last minute party, and I don't have a big budget for fun party favors. I used paper, burlap, tissue paper, netting, and rhinestones (all of which I had in my supply basket) to make these fun princess crowns for the party guests to take home. My daughter is excited, and most importantly she has forgotten about the purple eye shadow (I hope.)

Krylon Glitter Spray Paint

The past 2 weekends were the first weekends in a long time where I didn't have to work all day. My husband and I spent them clearing out junk, we had a garage sale and donated the rest of it. It feels so good to get rid of things I haven't had time to use in years. I'm embarrassed to admit that most of the stuff we got rid of was crafting supplies. My husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday this year and I told him that cleaning out the basement was the best gift I could get. I don't want any new clutter.

That was before I saw this: Krylon Glitter Spray. I'm taking back what I said about having a clean basement as a gift. I think I might need a can of this glitter spray. Now I just need to decide what color I want, and what I'm going to use it on.

hello... I'm back!

Hello! Thanks for being patient with me. I've been trying to figure out how to balance work and kids. I still haven't figured it out so if you have any suggestions or tips to share with me, leave them in the comments below.

Anyhow, I'm excited about this new little hello sign! I have one resting above my window when you walk into my house. This little sign is super fun because it’s so inexpensive and versatile. I used yellow spray paint to color mine. I have customers who have covered their little hello sign with their favorite patterned paper using modge podge.

I used Scotch Reusable strips to attach my little hello sign to my wall.
This sign would also look adorable on a front porch near the entry.
