Storing School Info

I find it so funny that we do certain things and we have this belief about ourselves and think other people won't find our functional routines... beneficial. (I guess is the word?) I was talking to my bestie about this and how for 2 years I have not published a post about back to school things I do because people won't find them useful... or worse, stupid. So it is time to face my fear and just write this post!

Happy Birthday Dad


Happy Birthday! I love you. And if I was really going to be honest, and admit that I am not feeling so strong today I would say through tear stained cheeks that I really miss you. I know you prepared us well for your death-you did a really great job with that- but I think the level of emptiness I feel at times is something no one can really prepare for. Even if you have been through it, you can tell someone about it but they have experience it themselves to understand this type of grief.

His & Her Towel Hangers

Thank you The Wood Connection for having me as a guest blogger today! I personally have enjoyed doing this project and I am super excited for all of you to take this and tweak it to fit your needs and your space!

 My bathroom space is kind of sad... a sad, sad beige. I refuse to paint any room until I can find about 3 items to go into the space that inspire me so I can start to bring the room together. I have finally reached 3 items! I found a shower curtain about 9 months ago, and with these new Facebook Group Yard Sale Site type things, I found a really cute metal cabinet. The following project is my 3rd item of inspiration, so I will be on my way to painting the space. (which will bring a new blog post as well ;)

Taming the Chord Chaos

I think everyone has this problem. I imagine everyone is at least challenged with this issue. Maybe people that do not use electricity, then they wouldn't. I am talking about power cords to all of our various devices. Cell phones, iPods &  iPads-3rd thru 100th generation, tablets, cameras, gaming devices, bluetooth earpieces, etc. Then there are the earbuds that come with all of these devices! I am sure this list could go on.

Does this photo help you feel better?
