DIY Extreme Jewelry Organizer

  A couple weeks ago a number of my necklaces got in a knot. A big one. I mean a it-took-me-almost-two-hours-to-undo knot. I was, needless to say, extremely frustrated with it all.

Scrappy Springtime Birdhouses

Have I ever said how much I love coordinated scrapbook paper? Well, I do. It takes a lot of the guess work out of designing. Almost whatever you do will look good together.

Magnetic Menu Board

Though I don’t have tons of time (like most moms) I love to cook but it is always a chore figuring out what to make with what I have on hand. So a while back I started doing two week menus so I know what I am going to make and keep me from totally freaking out come dinner time. Read More…
