I did find some of the larger vases at thrift stores around our area at an affordable … [Read more...]

How to Create a We are Thankful Board

So often, we have to remind our children to be thankful for the many blessings we are given on a daily basis. Especially during this time of year, it’s easy for children, in their innocence, to get caught up in thinking about what they want for Christmas. To humble my own children and to teach them the value in giving thanks, we created this sweet little thankful board. This fun-family project can be designed in so many ways to fit your family’s … [Read more...]

Before and After Collage DIY

I'm a thrift store shopper. I love finding great deals in thrift stores. Shopping at thrift stores is somewhat therapeutic for me and I love the "thrill of the hunt." You never know what you will find when you go to a thrift store and the best part is that you typically pay way less for an item vs. a brand new item at a retail store. During my last few thrift store runs, I've had "ugly furniture" on my mind. I've been wanting to take a cheap, … [Read more...]

When I wake up in the morning, I make a quick cup of coffee, put on a little foundation, eyeliner and mascara, change into my day clothes, and then throw my hair up in a pony tail before heading off to take the kids to summer camp. With two young children, I don't have too much time in the morning for me. Instead, you'll find me running around most mornings as I frantically try to get my kids ready and out the door … [Read more...]
