I decided that I would try my hand at decorating some Easter Eggs with nail polish using the water marble technique. It should be simple right? Well, let me tell you the answer…not at first! It really took some trial and error to figure it out, so I decided that I would share ALL the tips and tricks so you can make these wonderful eggs easily because they are beautiful when finished. I mean the possibilities are endless! And the best part is they work with all types of material such as real eggs, paper mache eggs, and even Styrofoam or plastic eggs. You can put these designs on anything...that you don’t want to eat of course! Once I got the process going it was really fun creating different designs and seeing how they turn out each time. No matter what material you use, the water marble nail art makes beautiful eggs that you can use to decorate anywhere!
It is finally time to build a work space for my crafting addiction now that I have officially moved the crib out of my room and have the space. I know, the crib has been there for four years, but I am letting it go. Of course, our son has been co-sleeping and has rarely seen a day in his crib, but that’s okay with me. I don’t think I am quite ready for him to “move out” just yet. Our oldest will be 17 this month and after realizing how fast they grow up, I am trying to treasure all the little moments I can and not rush anything. Now my husband may disagree, but…J
Now, back to the workspace! So, I have been surfing Pinterest for several days now browsing different designs and trying to obtain some ideas for my area. I was mainly looking for an L-Shaped Desk that would fit in the corner and also offer me some much needed storage. And just let me tell you there are lots of really cool home office designs out there. Well, during my research I did find some really great inspiration, and I am already working hard on getting my desk built and installed. Hopefully I will be showing you guys that design really soonJ However, I couldn’t resist showing you all the really great areas that I came across during my search that deserved recognition. So, if you are in the market for a home office area, or a workspace in a predefined space, these may be just what you are looking for to begin. Be inspired and enjoy!
Saving money often seems like an impossible task, however, I am going to share 8 easy ways you can save money now. Typically we find it hard to start saving because we are afraid to give up all the things we love. For me, it’s StarbucksJ These steps will help to save you money now without huge sacrifices. I personally have saved hundreds of dollars a month using each of these methods, and it has given my family and me so much peace of mind. It all started about a year ago when I decided that I needed to decrease my work hours to spend more time at home with my family, focusing on what was most important to our needs at the moment. At first I didn’t know where to start, but by faith and following these steps I was able to accomplish my goal without the budget suffering. In fact, by actually paying more attention to where our money was going, I was able to better to control the flow, and you will too!
After stepping on Lego’s for FOREVER, I decided it was time to build my son his own Lego Table with storage, putting me one happy step closer towards the completion of my son’s Superhero themed bedroom. If you remember last summer I made him the really cool Superhero Toy Box, then it was on to the Superhero Wall Posters that we decoupaged onto wood, and now I get to share this really cool Lego Table. This table is multi-functional with lots of storage for thousands of Lego’s. First, it has storage both underneath the Lego table top, a storage pocket off to the side of the table top, and a shelf underneath. The Lego table top is removable and portable and can be carried anywhere your little one wants to take it. So, they can sit at the table and play with Lego’s or on the floor with the removable tray. Long gone are my days of stepping on Lego’s (hopefully)!
Even though it feels like spring will never get here, I have decided to share some garage organization DIY shelves that would be perfect for spring cleaning. Whenever that may happen! I actually installed them in our garage last spring (pre-blog), but they have made such a huge difference in space and storage that I had to share. The best parts are they are super strong, and they are budget friendly at under $200 for all of them! And we have a lot of them.
