Valentine Banner {Printable}

Sorry I haven’t been around, I got the incredible opportunity to attend a youth ministry symposium in Orlando, Florida.  I learned a lot got some sun and had to come back to reality.  Hopefully I will be able to jump in where I left off on the blog.  I put together this little banner that would look really cute on a mantle or draped on a shelf.  Print it out on card stock and add ribbon! Easy Peasy!

Fridge Facelift

As the school year goes on, our family get busier and I tend to throw things of the fridge that are important and need to be in handy spot. Since the new semester is starting I decided to clam the craziness and give us a fresh start.!


Sorry this pic is so blurry didn’t have my settings right apparently. I think you get the idea of the craziness! Outdated calendars, literary for an upcoming trip, Thanksgiving (blush) papers, crazy ABCs, black schedules, etc.


Started by clearing off the entire fridge.


Better but still pretty dirty. Yuck!


All clean and prettified. Added cute monogram, names above the pictures a magnetic clip under each kiddo and one for me and the hubby, and filled out the schedule.

Ahhhh Much better!


Thanks for stopping by!

Day 2 Challenge The Top of the Computer Desk

Just wondered if Toni might be coming into my house at night and look for the messiest place and using it for her challenges. lol As you can see this was an area that needed lots of attention! 
New school calendars, reward chips, my oldish command central, a bird (I have no idea, don’t ask).
Bowl o’ Junk
This is a command center that I had been using but got out of of the habit of using. Maybe I should revamp it.

Shined it all up!

Even my cool $1 wooden bowl from the second hand store got a shine!

Labels for all the Cords
Label the bucket too so there is no mistaking it for a trash can, toy depository, etc.

My Dymo is my best friend!
Temporary home for Remote ( really don’t like covering my cool bowl.)

Pen and Pencil Holder
All done, looks great!  Thanks for the Challenge.

Day #1 Challenge (Organizing the "junk" drawer) with A Bowl Full of Lemons

I just somehow knew Miss Toni would get to the junk drawer. Can’t believe it was first –Blah! Just Kidding! I just have way too much craziness.  In my kitchen I have three, that’s right people count them three junk drawers of craziness.   I could make excuses about how busy I am but the honest fact is that I have been lazy.  I want to do crafts, decorate, go to lunch with friend and anything but face my Chaos. Thank you for this Challenge!  Now on to organizing the craziness. Ignore the  yucky green color of the  drawers and cabinets. It is what I’m living with till we have time to get to the kitchen.
Exhibit A
Exhibit B
Exhibit C
Threw away about 30% of the 3 drawers.
Nice Organizing NON craziness! 1 Drawer from 3.
(I have decided it makes the crazies in my family put things in their homes if they are labeled)
Amazing what you can find when you clean! 
Score I found my coffee shop gift card I’ve looked for about 3 months!
Empty Drawers 
More Bins to use in Future Challenges. 
And proof that I did at one point and time have some organization going on. Smile

Now me and this beauty have a date.  This is all the junk that actually has a home elsewhere.  I was just to busy er lazy to put it up.

 See you for the next challenge!

Valentine's Day 8x10 and Cupcake topper {Free Printable}

It is so fun to decorate for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but it is a bummer to take everything down. It makes the whole house look really bare. So I started looking to the next hoiday to spruce it up! I don't usually put up decoration for New Year's, so I started looking for Valentine's Day Printables and haven't found a whole heck of alot so I decided to try my hand at making my own.  Since I did all that work, I'll share them with you. I hope you like them. Please leave me a comment to let me know you are taking them. Check back often for more it was kinda fun making these!

 The first one is an 8x10 page suitable for framing.  Just click the link below and print on a plain ol sheet of typing (lol I just realized that was old school) printer paper at 100% ( no scaling).

The second is a gift tag or a cupcake topper that you can print on white cardstock at 100% (no scaling). Each tag can be cut with scissors or a 2 inch paper punch.

Have a Safe and Happy New Year!

App Love ~ Hipstamatic

Digital Photography Never Looked So Analog!

Ok so I am a Techy-nerdy chick so when I hear of a cool app for my Iphone I just have to check it out.  This one is awesome!  

Hipstamatic is a photography app that all the cool kids are playing with!  This app allows you to change lens, flashes, and films for photos with different effects.  I am loving the eighties retro vibe I am getting on these pics!  For $10 I have the most rockin analog camera on planet.
 With this glorious app you can shoot awesome pic, upload and share with your friends on Flickr and Facebook in a manner of minutes. You can even order these awesome shots straight from your iPhone. Pretty Handy Dandy if you ask me!




Cost at time of review : $1.99 (plus $.99 for each of the 4 add –on kits)

I have much love for this app. So check it out!

(P.S. No one paid for this post I just LOVE the app!)
