DIY Kitchen Pantry Sign with Subway Art Printable


This post contain affiliate links.

This past month we have been remodeling our kitchen and I had to change out the vinyl that I had over my pantry.  I am trying to make my style a little more fancy and not so cute, so I wanted to make a really nice frame for the space.  I had a hard time trying to come up with something to put in the frame because I wanted something there that was unique and something that you don't see every day.  I was going to do a fun quote that said "Together is our happy place" but then decided that I wanted some more fun. So instead I decided to make a fun subway art.  I love how it turned out!

Upcycled Kids' Toothpaste Holder


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tom’s of Maine for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Every week when the trash and recycling trucks come to our house to pick up our garbage, I am amazed by how much waste we produce.  Since it is Earth month this month, it's time to start thinking about making less waste, recycling more and leaving less of a mark on our planet. We always have so many boxes that we get rid of all the time, so I decided to upcycle one to make a cute container for my kids' bathroom. I've been wanting a pop of orange in there but have had a hard time finding a container that worked, so this upcycle was perfect.  It was the perfect color, didn't cost me a thing and it was one less thing I didn't have to toss.

To Get a New Shower, That is the Question

A lot of you might have seen my recent master bathroom makeover that we did a few weeks ago.  We didn't completely gut our master bathroom but really just change out the finishes to change it up.  We redid the bathtub, the floor and the vanity, leaving the shower because  it would be a big project and we really didn't want to put the time and money into it.  Plus since it was already white, it didn't clash with the new colors we were putting into the bathroom. I of course have thought about changing it out, who doesn't want to have a fancy shower, with beautiful tiles or a stand alone shower with clear glass doors to make a statement in your master bathroom?  I have always dreamed of having something like that, but reality hit and when we were redoing our bathroom, we decided not to tackle the shower.  I didn't think anything of it and posted about our makeover.  

Here is a before picture of our master bathroom.  As you can see there is nothing special about the shower.  It's a decent size and does the job, it's just not glamorous in any way.

Tips On How to Find the Perfect Counter Tops for Your Kitchen



Have you ever had wanted to change out the counter tops in your kitchen or bathroom?  Well a couple months ago I wanted to and when I started looking into it, I was CLUELESS on the process that goes into it.  There is a LOT more details and steps that I was expecting.  I was thinking that you would just go to the store, pick out a granite and call it good.  But there are so many options and styles and edges and all of that jazz it was crazy confusing and intimidating.  Since I was so clueless about replacing counter tops, I figured that other people might be too, so I thought I would share the things that I learned along the way with all of you :).  So rather me showing you had it done, I am going to show you the process that you go through to get new counter tops!

Using the Power of Prayer to Feel Peace #PrinceofPeace

This post is sponsored by Mormon.org, all opinions are 100% my own.

As Easter approaches this year I have been trying to turn my thoughts and energy towards the true meaning of Easter and not towards the Easter bunny and candy (oh the Easter candy... it's soooo good).  Some years I get so worked up on trying to make fun crafts for Easter and then doing all the festive things with the kids I forget to focus the holiday on Christ.  There's nothing wrong with doing all the fun things with the holiday but it's about trying to find the balance so it is not just one sided.  Luckily for me and for you, the LDS church has set up a calendar for the week leading up to Easter that gives a theme and a simple activity to make sure that this Easter season is filled with the Prince of Peace.

Eight The Smart Mattress- Bed in A Box Mattress

Technology is amazing and it seems to be getting better and better every day.  Technology has helped our lives so much and has made things easier.  Well things just got better because there is now a smart mattress!  Say what?!  I had no clue that they could do something like that, I knew that things can help track your sleep but I didn't realize that there is a mattress that does that.  So cool, huh?!
