CLOSET MAKEOVER: THE PLAN

SO… MY LAST BLOG POST WAS MONTHS. BAD BLOGGER, SHAME ON ME. SINCE MY LAST POST, MANY FUN DEVELOPMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE. THE MOST EXCITING IS THAT MY BOYFRIEND AND I BOUGHT A HOUSE!!! I KNOW, SO EXCITING! THE HOUSE IS BEAUTIFUL BUT OF COURSE I WANT TO DO PROJECTS – DIY PROJECTS THAT IS. BECAUSE YOU KNOW, I HAVE DONE MAJOR PROJECTS BEFORE AND I KNOW WHAT I’M DOING. NOT! LUCKY FOR ME THOUGH… I HAVE A SUPER HANDY MAN THAT LOVES ME SO MUCH THAT HE IS WILLING TO JOURNEY WITH ME TO DIY LAND.
SO, I DID SOME QUICK THINKING AND DECIDED TO TACKLE MY MASTER CLOSET FIRST. BEST THING IS, WE HAVE SEPARATE WALK-IN CLOSETS AND I GET TO DESIGN MINE JUST THE WAY I WANT. THE BOY SAID TO DRAW HIM WHAT I WANTED AND HE WOULD MAKE IT HAPPEN. WELL, HE MAY HAVE ASKED FOR MORE THAN DESIRED.
NOT EVEN A DAY LATER THIS HAPPENED…

WHAT CAN I SAY?! I’M EXCITED… WELL, AND I LOVE VISION BOARDS. BEST THING ABOUT THIS VISION BOARD IS THAT I WAS ABLE TO DESIGN AN APPROXIMATE VIEW OF MY CLOSET ON EASYCLOSETS. THE SITE REALLY MADE MY DREAMS COME ALIVE.
FIRST STEP – DEMOLITION. I’LL KEEP Y’ALL UPDATED ON THE PROGRESS SO YOU CAN SEE THIS BEAUTY COME TO FRUITION!

GIFT GUIDE: PREGNANCY CARE PACKAGE

ALMOST 9 MONTHS AGO MY VERY BEST FRIEND CALLED TO TELL ME THAT SHE WAS EXPECTING HER FIRST CHILD AND I COULDN’T HAVE BEEN HAPPIER! THERE WAS ONE SAD PART THOUGH, WE LIVE SO VERY FAR AWAY FROM EACH OTHER THAT I COULDN’T BE THERE FOR HER IN PERSON. SO I SENT HER A PREGNANCY CARE PACKAGE RIGHT AWAY! I SPENT A FEW DAYS RESEARCHING CRAVINGS FROM OTHER PREGNANT WOMEN AND WHAT HELPED THEM GET THROUGH THE 9 MONTHS OF THE BEAUTIFUL GIFT OF MAKING ANOTHER HUMAN BEING.

SHE WAS GOING TO BE A FIRST TIME MOMMY AND ALREADY HAD ALL OF THE NECESSARY BOOKS ON A HAPPY AND HEALTHY PREGNANCY AS WELL AS WHAT EVERY MOTHER SHOULD EXPECT. THESE TYPES OF BOOKS WOULD BE GREAT IF YOUR GIFTEE DOES NOT ALREADY HAVE THEM. SHE LOVES TEA AND COFFEE BUT OF COURSE CANNOT HAVE CAFFEINE SO I MADE SURE TO GET HER A DECAFFEINATED TEA SPECIFICALLY WONDERFUL FOR A PREGNANT WOMAN. I MADE SURE TO INCLUDE TASTY ESSENTIALS FOR CRAVINGS OR ANY SORT OF SICKNESS SO I INCLUDED JOLLY RANCHERS, TIC TACS, AND GOLDFISH. TUMS, OF COURSE, FOR THOSE UPSET STOMACH DAYS. A GREAT ESSENTIAL I ADDED WAS THE PALMER’S COCOA BUTTER LOTION TO KEEP AWAY THE STRETCH MARKS. MAGAZINES FOR LIGHT READING, SUPER SOFT SOCKS,  EOS MINT LIP BALM, AND A SOFT-SCENTED SOOTHING CANDLE BROUGHT ALL THE SIMPLE COMFORTS TOGETHER. I WANTED TO GET THE BABY THEIR FIRST BOOK AND OF COURSE WANTED IT TO BE MY FAVORITE CHILDHOOD BOOK. LAST BUT NOT LEAST I ADDED A  FUNNY “KID TAXI” WINDOW DECAL (WHICH THE FATHER LOVED) AND A CONGRATULATIONS CARD.

A PREGNANCY CARE PACKAGE IS A GREAT WAY TO SHOW SOMEONE HOW MUCH YOU CARE, HOW EXCITED YOU ARE FOR THEIR LITTLE BUNDLE OF JOY AND HOW MUCH YOU ARE THERE FOR THEM EVEN WHEN YOU CANNOT BE THERE IN PERSON.

Happy Gifting


BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED FREE PRINTABLE

Free Printable make my heart smile

WE CAN’T ALWAYS CHOOSE WHAT GOD HAS IN PLAN FOR US, WHAT HE HAS IN THE WORKS TO TEACH US THROUGH A BIT OF STRUGGLE,  BUT WE CAN LEARN TO TURN LEMONS INTO LEMONADE. LIKE A FLOWER THAT GROWS THROUGH A CRACK IN THE CONCRETE, SOMETIMES WE HAVE TO MAKE THE BEST OF OUR SITUATIONS AND BLOOM WHERE WE HAVE BEEN PLANTED.

YOU MAY NOT BE WHERE YOU WANT TO BE IN LIFE JUST YET BUT IT IS COMFORTING (AT LEAST TO ME) TO KEEP IN MIND THAT EVERY STEP IN LIFE PREPARES YOU FOR THE NEXT ONE. TO FULLY BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED AND GROW STRONGER, EVEN BETTER, ONE MUST NOT COMPLAIN BUT INSTEAD BE GRATEFUL AND A BLESSING TO OTHERS. FOR THIS REMINDER, HERE FOR YOU IS A BEAUTIFUL FREE PRINTABLE.

BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED FREE 8×10 PRINTABLE! CLICK BELOW & ENJOY!

HOW TO: BUILD A TERRARIUM IN 4 EASY STEPS

cropped

ONE RAINY SATURDAY A COUPLE WEEKS AGO, I DECIDED TO FEED MY CREATIVITY WITH A LITTLE DIY SUCCULENT TERRARIUM MAKING. I FOUND THIS AMAZING GARDEN CENTER IN AUSTIN WITH OODLES OF SUCCULENT VARIETIES. I REALLY THINK CHOOSING WHICH PLANTS TO TAKE HOME WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT PART AS I LOVED THEM ALL!

JUST A LITTLE NOTE THAT THE INITIAL COST OF THE MATERIALS OTHER THAN SUCCULENTS WILL SEEM A BIT PRICEY. JUST KNOW THAT YOU DO NOT USE A LOT OF MATERIAL FOR EACH TERRARIUM OR PLANTER, SO YOU CAN MAKE PROBABLY 10 OR SO BEFORE RUNNING OUT OF MATERIALS! JUST THINK OF ALL THE GIFTS YOU COULD MAKE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!!!!

MAY YOU HAVE A SUCCULENT DAY!!!
