    Hey guys! Sorry it’s been a few days I have been working on a few new things that will be coming up soon. I have also been working on adding items to my ETSY Shop. I am really excited about everything new that’s happening here. Well, today I have been working tirelessly trying to clean up our garage, It is such a mess!

If you do happen to have the same problem or even just have a laundry room that is unflattering, I have a few tips that might help you upgrade your laundry room for little to no money.

    Kids Art Hanging Station

    I love hanging up the fabulous artwork, especially when it’s made by kids. They just have so much imagination and wonder. It might not always be neat and tidy but I still love it just the same. I save my favorites for a special box ( I am not sure what I’m going to do with them yet but I want them to stay perfect) and the rest find homes on the fridge, walls or windows. I enjoy having little drawings all over the house but I thought it would be nice for the kids to have a place to display the are work they are proud of in their own rooms. I saw this post and thought it was a great idea! We already have learning material all over the walls so I only made the hanging station. Continue Reading

    It is time to start thinking about Mother’s Day gifts. I mean, what better holiday is there? Moms are the best! I have been finding pendants with a clear attachable dome everywhere and we have put everything from scrapbook paper to pressed flowers in them, but I though it would be a great idea to use a sonogram photo or photo of a child for Mother’s Day. I have seen them for sale on ETSY and they are so cute, I thought we could try it ourselves (although, it is nice to purchase from a small business whenever you can).  Continue Reading
