It's the biggest bedroom … [Read more...]

I'm embarrassed to admit this, but there have been quite a few times when I have accidentally thrown away important school papers. It just seems like the little desk area in our kitchen is a dumping ground for my kids. It's an area that always seems to be cluttered and messy. So this year, in an effort to organize my home and help myself stay a little bit sane, I decided I need a place to … [Read more...]

Make a DIY Accessory Display (Hannah’s Room Update)

Tatertots & Jello - DIY Accessory Display

Here's a little DIY project we made for Hannah's room. There was a space on her wall by the little desk area we created. I thought it might be the perfect place for her to hang little purses or scarves. And we added some colorful knobs to make it pretty. We used some left over molding from the little house I am working on, so it really only cost the price of the knobs we used. I bought the … [Read more...]

So -- I really wanted to do the reveal on Hannah's room today. But it snowed on Wednesday and Thursday and I had such a hard time getting good pictures of the room.

We pretty much took what we already had, … [Read more...]
