  • 13 Quick and Easy Bathroom Organization Tips

    January means full fledge organizing mode right? Time to purge, organize, declutter and clean! I always get the urge to get my home in order after the holidays. I’m going to be working on my bathroom makeover (phase 1) this week. I have big plans for my full bathroom renovation but that won’t be for a few months so I’m going to try a few temporary techniques (like I did for our master bathroom in our last house!) for upgrading our bathroom to make it look fresh and updated without spending a bunch of money until #demoday comes! Mostly I’m repainting everything existing just until we begin the full renovation. We plan on expanding our bathroom to gain space for a bathtub and some more storage. Until then, I’ll be using these organization tips to utilize the space we have! PS. Did you catch our kids bathroom renovation and reveal? It’s one of my favorites!

  • Cranberry & Lime Christmas Cake

    Only 7 ingredients in this Christmas cake! Bursting with fresh cranberries, it is super moist with the best texture and flavor! Hey friends, it’s Adell from Baked in AZ! I can’t believe that it’s already the week of Thanksgiving! November has just flown by. I am so excited to share this recipe with you today. I discovered it a few years back and it has become a family favorite. Recipes that are unique and don’t have lots of ingredients always seem to catch my eye. This recipe has no baking soda or powder but it’s called a cake. That’s because you mix up the eggs until they are really fluffy and they act as the leavening agent in the recipe! So cool huh?! This creates the most moist and decadent cake. The bright cranberries just scream Christmas too. So because there are not a bunch of ingredients, it is super simple to whip up! It has the best taste and texture. Moist and chewy and bursting with tart cranberries. No frosting or topping to worry about either. Just mix it up and bake!…

  • DIY Oversized Chalkboard Calendar

    Materials Needed: 4×8 sheet of smooth plywood Chalkboard Paint ScotchBlue Delicate Surfaces Painter’s Tape Putty knife White latex paint Paintbrush Lint-free paint roller Paint tray Sanding block (optional) Note: Follow all ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape package instructions for proper surface cleaning and prep, adhesion and removal. Step 1: Make sure your plywood is free from any splinters or cracks. Sand edges smooth if necessary using a sanding block. Paint the entire sheet of plywood with chalkboard paint using a lint-free foam roller. Allow to dry for 24 hours. Step 2: Use ScotchBlue Delicate Surfaces Painter’s Tape to tape off a border around the outside perimeter of your calendar; this will act as a placeholder for your border. We chose to do a traditional monthly calendar on the left side and a large “Notes” section on the right side. Our border was approximately 4 inches on the bottom, sides and approximately 8 inches on the top of the calendar to allow space to label the days of the week. To make this easier, we used 4 rows of the 1.88 inch wide ScotchBlue Delicate Surfaces Painter’s…

  • Back in Class: Free Classes at Michaels

    This month as part of the Michaels Makers program, we were challenged to try something new creatively!  For this challenge, we decided to get our kiddos involved. We have been soooo busy lately and with 8 kids between the two of us, sometimes it’s hard to sit down and get creative with our little ones and boy, do they love it when we do. We decided a kid’s class would be the best for everyone! Michael’s kids classes are FREE and the supplies for the class were even included. Most of the classes are free and you can try out a new craft skill for just the cost of supplies. For this class, they were making these cute pendant banners for Summer! The kids thought it would be fun to make them with their names on them and it was a huge hit! They were so excited to have some crafting time with us and Michaels made it so easy for that to happen. Another way you can get creative is by trying out a craft kit at Michaels. They have everything…
