Weekly Planning S•O•S

I am seriously trying to do better at weekly planning. Technology is great, but in the area of accomplishing tasks I've added to my calendar, I am F•A•I•L•I•N•G. So, I'm taking it back to the old school way of doing things - W•R•I•T•I•N•G out my weekly plans. This is what I'm doing with this grandiose idea. I've made my own weekly planning sheet (you can download it here). I bought my favorite pens, Sharpie pens, in my favorite colors. I picked up some cute Washi tape at Super Target. I feel like I need to have these things I like to make this...

DIY: Ribbon Curtain Photo Backdrop

I was asked by a 16 year old birthday girl to make a photo backdrop for her and her friends for her party. So, I made a ribbon curtain backdrop for the occasion! It is actually pretty simple and the end result is adorable! These ribbon curtains photograph really well and look great under any photo filter.   Supplies: 1/4" x 2" x 4ft (longer/shorter) hobby board (from Home Depot)  Ribbon. TONS of it! I try to get the ribbon WITHOUT the wired edge. Get different patterns, widths, textures, colors, etc. Dollar Tree and Michael's worked for me for purchasing ribbon Scissors Hot glue gun...

A little Sunday afternoon reno...

After a week of being on the go with family, projects, life and a vendor fair, I decided to spend my Saturday night like this: It was refreshing and I slept so well last night! As I often do, I dreamt of the projects I want to do around the house and I was so happy with them in my sleep. Upon waking, I decided to start one of these happy dream projects because I want that happiness when I'm awake, too! A little over a year ago, I bought this book case. I had it decorated and set up...


Jenna's table

Jenna's table

I'm making a table for little Jenna. She's almost 4 and needs a table of her own to do the things little 4-year old girls do! I started off by painting the boards for the table top in turquoise, pink, brown and white. Before this is all said and done, I'll sand these boards again to make sure the rough edges and splinters are gone. I'm thankful for spring break (a perk of being a teacher)! Today I got the legs cut and the frame built. This little table is going to be so cute! I'm excited! So after a...
