Today I'm excited to share a new book with all of you called Change Your Home, Change Your Life™ with Color by Moll Anderson. This book helps you find YOUR color, which positively impacts your surroundings, mood, behavior and emotions! I have been decorating my home in neutrals and metallics, because these are colors that fit me and my family. This book will help you understand why you love and dislike certain colors and how to accept certain colors that could help renew, revamp and revitalize your home and life!

Change Your Home, Change Your Life™ with Color will be available in Target stores when it officially publishes on March 14. 2017


In the beginning of this book, Moll Anderson will ask you, "What is your color story?" There are pages in the book with questions and answers to help you understand why you love and hate certain colors, what …

12 Months of Goals - March

Image
Last year I set 3 goals every month for myself and I accomplished a lot! This year, I wanted to down play it even more and just set ONE goal for myself. However, with just one goal each month I hope to devote more time to it. You can find an update on February's Goal below.


In March...
I'd like to create a Short Form Facebook video! I have been seeing these pop up all over Facebook and I've been interested in trying to do one myself. If you don't know what these are, it is a video that usually goes along with a blog post. It shows how to do something. The video is usually 30 seconds to 1 minute in length. I would like to show how to make a recipe in my video and then I'll have an accompanying blog post of the recipe to go with the video. 

I was working on creating some unboxing videos last year that I published on my You Tube page, but I haven't created a video in 5 months! Seriously, that is a long time. I've probably forgotten how to use iMovie! I also have …

Princess Smart Mirror {My Knight and Me}

Image
I’m so excited to tell you about the adventure-packed new medieval animated series for kids from TeamTO, My Knight and Me! I'm also sharing a craft that you can work on with your little Princess- a Princess Smart Mirror! This mirror isn't really 'smart', but it is sparkly, wrapped in ribbons and even monogrammed with your favorite princesses initial! In the cartoon My Knight and Me they do have a smart mirror and this mirror will prompt your child with plenty of imaginative play! This show is currently airing on the Cartoon Network weekdays at 12 p.m.




My Knight and Meis for kids ages 6-10 and follows the quests of a colorful and charismatic trio of knights in shining armor: loyal, street-smart Jimmy the Squire; daring and determined Cat the Princess; and bold and courageous Henri of Orange, Jimmy’s dad and a charmingly inept, yet passionately chivalrous knight who might not be the most efficient protector of the realm – but sure is the funniest! Together, the knightly g…

The Creative Corner Link Up Party & Weekly Recap - 02/26/17

Image
Welcome back to our DIY/Craft Link Up Party! Thank you for stopping by every week!


Today's Feature is Welcoming Spring with Farmhouse Floralsby Worthing Court.

I like to share a little recap of my week at the start of each party:


Last Sunday, Autumn had World Thinking Day for scouts. Her troop did Lebanon, we did a swap of the Lebanese flag and had Baklava for a dessert. The girls got to learn about several other countries, such as Belgium, Egypt, etc.



Nathan FINISHED cub scouts! We have decided not to continue on with boy scouts. It was a really hard decision after 5 years in cub scouts (and Brian is an Eagle scout!), but we are trying to cut back on some of the kids activities. With Nathan having karate 3 days a week and Autumn in dance competition... IT'S A LOT. We don't get a lot of nights at home as a family. Boy scouts was going to be A LOT more, too... so, it is really sad, but I think the best decision. Nathan also won 2nd Place in the Pinewood Derby for Webelos.

St. Patrick's Day Themed Breakfast & Scavenger Hunt

Image
Every year I surprise my kids with a St. Patrick's Day Breakfast AND Scavenger Hunt! How did this start you may ask? Well, I have a little troll doll that has a St. Patrick's Day outfit and we've come to call him Leprechaun Nickel. Every year, he is the one that brings the sugary breakfast goodies and clues for the hunt! 

One year my daughter even lost him at the City Museum in St. Louis and I had to quickly order another one on Amazon Prime! ;) I want to thank Oriental Trading for supplying the party favors AND scavenger hunt prizes! Yay!



Let me introduce you to Leprechaun Nickel.



I set up a breakfast for each kid... Us adults just get the leftovers! lol! Every year I do something a little different and I have a lot of items I've kept and reuse over the years, such as the headband and also metal tin you see the popcorn in. The green table cloth, polka dotted napkin and rainbow plates really made this plate setting colorful and fun!


This Years St. Patrick's Day Breakfa…
