January in Review

No comments:
I've decided to start doing review posts for each month.
It will be a place to feature all of my posts for the month in case you missed one!
If you aren't a fan on Facebook, I sure hope you'll join us.
We've been having some great chats over there. I love the fact that we can bounce ideas around,
give and receive advice.  It makes me feel like I have 2,000+ friends out there!
January I stayed pretty busy. Check out what I was working on:

Today I am going to introduce you to a new product by Coats and Clark called Phoomph.
What is Phoomph you ask?  It is a new fabric bonding sheet that creates texture and dimension without any sewing or ironing.

Weekly Meal Planner Printable

1 comment:
I've had a lot of requests for a simplified version of my weekly meal planner, so yesterday I created a black and white version. It is just the meal planning sheets, no cover or back cover, and will obviously save you on colored ink if you choose to print at home.  We just finished our last book so I printed and bound the new version so that I still have copies of my meal plans from previous weeks.

Ridiculously Easy Baby Doll Shoes {Perfect for Waldorf Dolls}

1 comment:
My daughter has a Waldorf Doll that she received a few years ago and LOVES. Her name is Emily.

While playing on Friday night, Olivia informed me that Emily's feet were cold and she needed big girl shoes JUST like Olivia's.  What's a mom to do but deliver? We headed down to the craft room, grabbed some purple felt and a few sparkle gems and ended up with these ridiculously easy baby doll shoes:

HOW TO: Start a Blog

5 comments:
I've had a few people in my life recently ask me about starting a blog and how one goes about doing so. I figured it they were looking for that info, there are probably others that need a little advice, so here are my suggestions for the Blogger Wannabe!
First, pick your niche! Will you be blogging about your life, being a mom, crafts, home d├ęcor? Nail down the topics you are considering covering.  This doesn’t mean you’ll be required to only blog about these topics, but you want to be known as an “expert” and that is best if you know what you are talking about!

How to {easily} cover a drum shade

11 comments:
Lamps and light fixtures at Lamps.com 
Back in December Lamps.com invited me to participate in their Blogger challenge and I jumped at the chance. They sent each participant a plain white drum shade and challenged us to do with it what we wanted!

I stuck to the basics and updated an old, traditional style lamp that was housed in my living room.
The lamp was nothing special and I've been wanting to update it for a while.
So I took it from traditional to contemporary, and I think, WAY MORE appealing and eye-catching.

"Bee" Mine - Free Printable Valentine

7 comments:
 I've been brainstorming some Valentine ideas for my kids school and daycare an this was one I came up with.  I got the idea from the Butterfly Valentine that has been floating {get it? hardy har har} around the internet for a while now.  From that I thought, this sure would look cute as a bee, and that's where I took it.

Gift Card Jar

1 comment:
My little brother turns 15 today!  Since we still have the decorations up from my cousins get together and my mom isn't feeling great, I offered to have cake and ice cream at my house this afternoon for the family.
We typically give Tyler money or gift cards for his birthday, he's 15 - these things are a commodity at that age!  This time I hid it in paper confetti stuffed into a Mason jar and decorated with washi tape:

30 Rocks!

One of my best friends (and cousin) Melissa turned 30 today so we had her over for dinner, cake and ice cream and a little board game fun.  Her, her boyfriend and his son joined us and our three kids - they all get along great and took off to play as soon as he arrived.

Wrapping Up 2012...

3 comments:
I posted 352 times in 2012!  I liked that little fact...it makes me feel productive.
 
So what was I posting exactly?  Well let's recap a few:
I remodeled my basement and totally decked out my craft room.
And I'm proud to say it is still just as clean, except for the scrap bin, that seems to be overflowing.

What I Wear Wednesday on Tuesday!

No comments:
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of No nonsense for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
I think almost every woman has heard of the brand No nonsense at some point in their lives.  But if you are anything like me, you associate that name with nylons, but here's the thing - that's not true anymore!
No nonsense now offers LEGGINGS and fun tights at affordable prices and they are available in food and drug stores, so even in a small town you should be able to pick up a pair.  Seriously! I'm from a small town without box stores, but I've seen these in our local drug store and the grocery store where I shop!
 I'm big into leggings - I wear them with button ups, tunics, t-shirts, dresses and almost always with tall boots.  They are comfortable and stylish and work for just about everyone as long as they are worn right!
No nonsense sent me a pair of tights and a pair of leggings and I love both.
Check out how they can really add personality to an outfit:
Aren't those tights to die for?  I LOVE the green and they truly spice up this outfit and makes it ultra-modern!  So easy to take simple pieces and dress them up with a fun, colorful pair of tights!

I want to officially welcome everyone to 2013!
Here's hoping for a terrific year.
If you are a blogger and your resolution is to "grow your blog" then you might want to consider putting on some "big girl clothes" with a new blog design! You know I'd be happy to help and I actually do not have a wait list right now! It's a first in a VERY long time.
