  I don't know about you but my walls are covered in pictures of my kids. In fact, I think it's a bit overwhelming when you come into my house because there are pictures of them everywhere - hallway, bedroom, living room, dining room, and yes, even the guest bathroom. While I love seeing their cute little faces all over my walls, I'm...

Lazy summer days are coming to an end for most (if not already ended) and backpacks are being stuffed with supplies. Back-to-school is an exciting time for kids (and moms) and at our house we try and make it something to look forward to, and ease the fears and insecurities that lie just below the surface. One of our favorite traditions this...

I know you. You're that woman (exactly like myself) who loves being crafty, but who sometimes just doesn't have the energy, the time, or the muscles to lug out her beefy sewing machine.  Or maybe you're terrified of sewing machines.  Or needles for that matter. No biggie...you can still create some (50 to be exact) gorgeous handmade items...

My home decorating style and interests are always changing and evolving. I try to buy classic pieces that I know I will love for a long time, but I also like to throw in something trendy and spunky- particularly on the more inexpensive side. A lamp can be the perfect finishing touch to a room, and it's even better when that little lamp can make...

Preserving memories is something that is important to me; however, I don't have the time I'd like to create scrapbooks or elaborate books. Maybe some day, but not right now. I'm constantly on the look out for quality photo sites to create awesome gifts and find ways to preserve things for my family. When I was introduced to Pinhole Press, I was so...

Summer time for my family means squeezing in some beach time.  It's no surprise that we seem to always come home with a bucket full of sand and found shells from our beach adventures.  Instead of tossing it away, cherish the memory and bottle it up!  I started a shell bottle collection just recently when we got back from our trip to Seaside,...

When we moved into our new home 3 years ago, I was on a quest to make our master bedroom into a sanctuary to escape and relax from the craziness of the day-to-day life. However, my budget was TIGHT so I knew I was going to have to get creative in order to achieve the look I was going for. And for the past 3 years my bedroom looked decent and I...

My daughter has been chomping at the bit to learn how to sew. I think I was a little intimidated (remembering back to how many times I messed up my mom's machine when she taught me so many years ago) so I kept putting it off. It seemed like a much better summer activity and when summer finally rolled around she was more than excited to get...
