5 Minute Personalized Chalkboard

My kids love anything that is personalized with their name or initials and this 5 Minute Personalized Chalkboard is not only fun, but practical too!

Painted Clipboard for Office Organization

The start of a new year is always one of my favorite things.  I love being able to purge, start fresh and get organized.  I especially love creating fun and pretty new ways to help me stay organized, like this Painted Clipboard for my office. The truth is I'm a pretty organized person.  I really dislike clutter. My family always jokes that if they can't find something it's because I've thrown it away.  I'm notorious for discarding things that aren't in their place and don't even get me … [Read more...]

Birthday Carnival Welcome Sign

Whenever you go to the circus or carnival there is always a huge sign to welcome you to all of the fun.  I knew I wanted a big sign to welcome everyone to our twins Birthday Carnival Party, but because our party was outside at a park I didn't really have a way to hang anything.  That's when I decided to use a giant wooden picture frame from Cut It Out. I love the whimsical shape of these Cut It Out frames and knew that the large 16 x 20 Chandler frame would be perfect for our Birthday … [Read more...]
