If you are looking for an inexpensive but creative custom look for your windows here is a great option. We have a wall of windows that I have let go without character for many months now. Since we had renovations done and the colors changed I have not found the right curtains to go on this wall. When I would start shopping for what I had in mind it quickly got very pricey. I love the look of floor to ceiling length. I also wanted the specific colors I had used on the walls and for my accent colors and it was hard to find. That is when...

How do you keep your bills organized and paid on time? For years, I would just pay them as I would get them in the mail. Which would mean that I drug out my checkbook every few days.

Usually my kids love to cut, color and give stuff away but they just weren’t feeling it that day. I’m going to try this homemade Valentines for kids craft again with them a little closer...

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays since becoming a mom. I love to surprise them on the days up to Valentine’s Day with fun crafts, little treats and things they just don’t expect. This craft would be perfect for popping a little note into a lunch box or backpack. I haven’t figured out how to get a small candy to stick inside of them yet, but I’m working on it! I adapted this project from Martha Stewart for ease, I think doing it with the changes I made makes it a little simpler than the instructions...
