FAMILY Subway Art Canvas

Subway art…I LOVE it!  I’ve seen, and pinned, so many cute ideas on Pinterest.  However, with the recent death of our color printer, I’m not able to print any of it…..so I made it myself.  I started with a blank canvas, some black chip board letters from Pick Your Plum {love them, by the way}, and some scrapbooking stickers.  Before I move on with how I made it, I have to show my first attempt making this using stencils {cut {Read More}

Our Spring Mantel

Our mantel hasn’t been “decorated” since Christmas.  After Christmas, the photo frames came back out and adorned our mantel until now.  I’ve been working on little pieces here and there to add to the mantel, and it’s finally done!

Menu Plan {April 1}

I’ve been using Google calendar to manage our menus the last few weeks, and I am in LOVE with it!  I have our “Menu” calendar color coded with an aqua blue, and I’ve recently discovered that I can set the calendar to repeat the appointment. So, when I made our menu for this coming week, I set a few of the dishes to repeat in two weeks.  Voila!  My menu plan, in two weeks, will be partially planned already.Why not {Read More}

Must Try Monday {Garlic Bread Bowls}
