Job Chart

I've been trying to decide what to do to get more organized and get a little more help from my kids lately. It's hard since we aren't home very often to have a routine where the kids can acutally have some stablility. I stumbled across this Job Chart and I really like the concept and simplicity of it. I think I'm going to make one for Canyon and Savanna but just change it up a little bit. I'll let you know how they turn out!

"Super Easy" Bench

I found this site a while back which actually give you building plans for do it yourself furniture. I've been excited to try my (Scott's) had at it ever since! :) Although I would really like to go straight for the big stuff, Kitchen Table, I told Scott we can do this bench first to see how good we are. Plus, I really want this bench and I know exactly where we would put it. It will be perfect in our kitchen / Dining area right by the door that leads to the garage. I can sit the little kiddos on the bench while I'm putting their shoes on them before we head out the door. It will be perfect! :)

Crepe Paper Rosette Wreath

Here is what's first on my "to-do" list. I love this crepe paper rosette wreath! I am going to make one and hang it in front of my big black mirror in our living room. I'm super excited about it! Here is the site I got the tutorial from.

My Inspiration

I got the idea to start this blog from my dear sister Natalie. :) We recently moved into a bigger place and I've had so much fun playing with space I have and planning how I want to decorate. I've always loved being creative and with all the resources we have out there I find myself online often just browsing the different do-it-yourself decorating ideas. I am going to use this blog to keep track of my favorite ideas and pics of how they turn out when I get around to doing them. :)
