Graduation season is on the way again! After YEARS and YEARS of effort, it's so fun to celebrate the achievement of graduates, big and small. I've gathered up these ideas to help savor the moment by putting a little of ourselves and our craftiness into the moment.

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.

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.

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!
