My Favorite Cupcake Carrier

My Favorite Cupcake Carrier

I love making cupcakes for birthday parties, holidays or any occasion for that matter, but I’ve always had a challenge transporting decorated cupcakes to school. A couple years ago, I had what I thought was a great cupcake carrier.  Trying to balance a gazillion...
Sporty Girl’s Room Makeover

Sporty Girl’s Room Makeover

For Taylor’s 8th birthday, she wanted to update her room to be more “sporty.”  Here’s a look at the transformation into big girl sporty: We put some of her little league jerseys on display. I wrapped each one around an art canvas.  On her bed,...

My Wish Wood Sign

It’s been a project completing weekend.  I’ve had several projects in the works lately and I’m finally wrapping them up today.  Here’s a painted wood sign that I made for the girls’ bathroom.  I’ve always loved the words to this...
Easy Earring Storage for Girls

Easy Earring Storage for Girls

I personalized these craft storage containers for the girls to keep up with their growing earring collections.  I added a fun name decal to personalize their boxes.  (Available here)  In one of the compartments, we keep extra earring backs which comes in very...

Rose Petal Preservation

Looking for a way to display your dried rose petals?  After my daughter was a flower girl in our friend’s wedding last summer, she wanted to save the rose petals in her basket.  We decided to press them and display them in a frame that she could hang in her...
Garage Coat Organization

Garage Coat Organization

It doesn’t stay cold for long here in Texas, but I had to do something with the piles of coats we have accumulated.  Since I transformed our coat closet into a game closet, I had to make room somewhere else for the coats.  We had some unused wall space in the...

Texas Longhorns Wreath

We had such a fun girls/kids weekend while the guys were in Austin for the Longhorns’ game.  The kids played and the mommas crafted.  This year we decided to make wreaths.  Since we’re all about football this time of year, here’s what I came up with...
Back to School Countdown

Back to School Countdown

This summer I realized that we would need a spot for our soon-to-be kindergartener to hang her backpack each day.  I fell in love with this idea on Pinterest and had to create my own version.  I moved our art wall and made space for this in our kitchen. I saved a lot...
Texas-Style Hat Rack

Texas-Style Hat Rack

I had been looking for a hat rack for my husband when I came across this idea (via Pinterest, of course).  It’s functional and decorative.  I tried to hang them like the original idea, but I couldn’t get it to work.  Plus, they stuck out pretty far from...
Organizing Craft Supplies

Organizing Craft Supplies

I have finally completed my craft area transformation.  I have a spot in the laundry room for my craft supplies.  I was using a large cabinet to store everything but couldn’t keep it organized.  Things were piled on top of each other and it was hard to find what...
DIY iPhone Case Design

DIY iPhone Case Design

I had the hardest time trying to find a case that I liked for my iPhone, so I decided to create my own, unique case.  I purchased a clear Speck GumShell Case (found here on Amazon.com).  Then, cut out a piece of scrapbook paper to fit inside.  Now I can change out my...
Don’t Forget . . .

Don’t Forget . . .

I have been so busy lately that I can’t seem to remember to take everything with me when we hop in the car.  This dry erase board has come in so handy.  I added a little vinyl lettering and attached a ribbon to dress up a plain dry erase board.  It hangs on our...
Laundry Room Organization

Laundry Room Organization

I found this idea from brynalexandra.blogspot.com via Pinterest. We added a 1×4 board down the length of the laundry room wall then added hooks every 18 inches. Hanging clothes from the dryer is much easier when you have a place to put...
Pinterest Projects {Part 1}

Pinterest Projects {Part 1}

I’ve taken a long break from blogging, but I have been busy working on projects and trying out ideas I found via Pinterest (follow me).  I love having a place to collect ideas (before Pinterest I printed out everything).  But what I love even more is completing...
Toy Organization

Toy Organization

One thing I can’t stand is parts from toys and games tossed (and lost) throughout the house.  A while back I started organizing toys into containers.  They are stored high enough that the girls must ask to get them down.  They play with cooking stuff or playdoh...
Bookselves {Ikea find}

Bookselves {Ikea find}

I found these shelves at Ikea in the framing section.  They are shelves to hold picture frames but work even better as bookshelves! See more ideas from this girl’s room: Stenciled Curtains Wall Art Magnetic Wall I linked up here:  http://www.tipjunkie.com  | ...
Painted Curtains

Painted Curtains

Ahh, they are finally done!  This was a much bigger project than I anticipated, but I’m thrilled with the end result. I used Martha Stewart’s stencil and painted on white curtain panels from Ikea. It took forever to paint these 118″ curtains with...
Wall Art {Kids Room}

Wall Art {Kids Room}

I added this frame above my daughter’s magnetic “teacher” wall (more about that project here).  I took an empty frame, added vinyl words, and attached some ribbon. I thought the words were fitting for the imaginative play that goes on here. I linked...
DIY Office Wall Art

DIY Office Wall Art

Found it.  Pinned it.  Made it.  {Pinterest inspired artwork} As a web designer, this just cracks me up… I love this quote.  I used a 24×36 in canvas, Martha Stewart stencil, some yellow paint and printed the quote at Staples.   I painted the yellow area...
