Create Your Own Designer Accent Pillows {PLUS a Giveaway}


I just finished one of the most fun projects I've made for my home in a while- designing and decorating custom accent pillows!
One of my favorite companies, Cutting Edge Stencils now has a sister company, Paint-A-Pillow and let me tell you, their products are fantastic. Paint-A-Pillow offers an entire stenciling kit that allows you to create your own designer accent pillows. You literally have control over everything; you pick paint colors, pattern design, even if you want a white or a natural colored pillow.

Enter to WIN the #GBTravelSafe Sweepstakes!

“I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for GB. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”



Just when I thought my days of baby gear around the house were over, my sister is about to have her first baby and I'm going to get to watch him a few days a week while she and her hubby work, and I'm seriously so excited!
She's in the process of having her baby showers and making her most important purchases, including the baby's car seat.

An Uncertain Choice by Jody Hedlund- Pinspiration {Giveaway Winner Announced}


A few weeks ago I posted my book review for Jody Hedlund's new YA romance novel An Uncertain Choice. Set during medieval times, readers enjoy an array of characters from a nobel lady to fine Sir Knights, castles and horses, jousting tournaments, adventure, and of course a bit of romance.

When I'm enjoying a book, I love to browse Pinterest for character and setting inspiration.

No-Bake SNICKERS® Oatmeal Bites- Who Are You When You're Hungry?

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #WhenImHungry #CollectiveBias


Oh, it's no joke that every one of us aren't quite ourselves when we get hungry, right? I mean, let that sugar crash or don't eat a healthy breakfast, and we all turn into monsters by midday.
Okay okay, maybe I'm just talking about me and my family, but I have a feeling there's many of us out there who can say that inner beast comes a knocking when it's food time.

My No-Bake SNICKERS® Oatmeal Bites are the perfect bite sized cookies. They're coated with SNICKERS® chocolaty goodness, and make the perfect little afternoon snack for when we're not feeling quite ourselves.

Glamorous Garbage by Barbara Johansen Newman {Giveaway Winner Announced}


Are you a thrifter? Self proclaimed Yard Sale Queen? Upcycler extraordinaire?
Do you remember being that way as a kid? Oh, I do! I loved going to garage sales with my mom when I was little. We'd find everything under the sun, and I credit that time spent to a bit of my creativity now when it comes to before and after projects I love to do.

In the new children's book Glamorous Garbage by Barbara Johansen Newman, we meet a very creative kid, Bobbie (who you may remember meeting in the book Glamorous Glasses). And she is a collector.

#TBT to Australia and French Press Coffee




You may not think that a french press coffee maker and Australia have anything to do with each other. And, they may not except in my own memories.
But, the first time I used my new, gorgeous Francois et Mimi glass french press, I was transported back to 2013 and our first day of vacation in Melbourne, Australia.
Here's my french press and Australia coffee story. It may be a little random, but apparently my sense of taste has a strong memory trigger.

The Flintstones and WWE: Stone Age Smackdown {Blu-Ray & DVD Giveaway Winner Announced} #FlintstonesWWE


You may remember a few month's back my nine year old son created and shared here on the blog his own video tutorial on how to make a WWE title belt. Over the past few years, my family has grown to be pretty big WWE fans (we even took the boys to see it live when they were in town). So when I say that my kids are anxiously awaiting their report cards so they can be rewarded with the newest movie- The Flintstones and WWE: Stone Age Smackdown, I'm not exaggerating. They've seen the commercials, and it's at the top of their list.
