Decorating Dry Erase With Duct Tape

Several years ago on a parenting board I frequented someone came on to talk about how her husband made a wallet out of duct tape and showed a picture. It was hysterical to me, and yet I was unaware of what was to come. Now there are books and DIY projects revolving around making things with Duct Tape. When I was at BlogHer in August Duct Tape was giving out their new line of Duct Tape sheets … [Read more...]

Neutral Tones With Blue For Your Home

Although I have a love for color in the home I do understand that there are people who just can't do it. Neutrals can be done really well with a pop color that is more muted and appealing to those who do not want saturated colors. For color inspiration I thought I'd go with the Autumn Rays palette by Design Seeds. You can see here the different shades of neutral you can incoroprate with just … [Read more...]

A redhardwick Masterpiece

I don't think I can properly describe the redhardwick masterpiece on my daughter's wall.  I'm going to try to get close to how fantastic with some pictures. I'll start with a little backstory.

Scentsy Review Plus Giveaway

I am a huge home fragrance fan.  I love to light candles and burn natural oils in my house.  However, since having kids I've come to do it less and less because I'm so afraid of the fire hazard.  I try to keep things really high up but then of course that still scares me. Just last week my younger brother was telling me about the building right next door to him had a fire.  I asked how it … [Read more...]
