With Spring comes BIG changes!

With the gorgeous temps today I feel inspired to share with ya’ll one of the projects going on in our household this past month! I don’t know about you, but warmer temps combined with glorious sunshine make me motivated to tackle the biggest projects in the house (typically ones that I have pushed under the rug for 5-6 months!).

Before the holidays my hubby and I had discussed the idea of “gifts” and what we wanted to do (we ALWAYS set a budget…I guess that comes from working in the financial industry for me). And this year we both decided that we didn’t want to “waste” our hard earned money on things we would just put into a drawer and pull out in 5 years when we do a garage sale…so what did we decide to do? A “custom-built” walk-in closet! Ooo, this was something I had wanted for years, and knew it wouldn’t be too difficult to convince my hubby (I may have used the “If we get the closet done just think of how much more space YOU will have, my stuff will be soooo organized it’ll leave tons of room for you!“). It isn’t that far of a stretch…I SWEAR he does have more room now…I just still have MORE 🙂

Anyways, check out the pic below for a sneak peek at before… YIKES! Please don’t judge me…I swear to you I am organized in other areas of my life…just not in there…ha! I will be doing the final post/page in another week or two, I am just getting the final touches (i.e. nicer bins for storage, shoe bins, tie holders etc)…if you’re gonna do it you may as well do it RIGHT the first time!

Party Time!

With it being such a gloomy day today, I thought I would reach back in my vault of crafts a little bit and share with ya’ll how to make a fabulous Birthday Number out of paint chips!

This was a task I had taken on for my nieces 2nd birthday back in October, telling my sister in law I wanted to make a special number for her cake and goodie table. The theme was Bubble Guppies so I went with nice hues of blue for the ocean effect…I think it turned out GREAT! And do you want to know the best part? You only need to buy one thing…yup ONE! Take a look at the page and get started on your very own number (or word, or design…) for your next event!

Everybody needs a little more creativity in their lives <3 Enjoy!
