Repurposed Tank Top To Ruffled Pillows

Ever go through your closet and keep things because you like them, knowing full well you will never wear them again?  Such was the case with a ruffled white tank top in my closet, and after a couple years of saving it for no reason I decided that if I liked it so much, why not make it into something I would really use and enjoy on a daily basis.  Out came a matching pair of white ruffled pillows. So as I mentioned I had this ruffled white tank top that I bought a few years back to wear under a suit coat for a formal occasion.  It was made of a pretty white ruffled fabric and contained...

Turn Family Snapshots Into Priceless Photos – Editing And Quotes

By combining a few of my favorite quotes with some simple family snapshots, I can create beautiful and meaningful pictures that capture special family moments.  I love using our day to day family photos for projects like family photo books or gifts for family.  Enhanced with photo editing and quotes they become priceless.

Get the low down on why I am including What I Wore Wednesday posts here, but the main reason is to motivate myself to put in a little extra effort each and every day.  What I wore Wednesday is a way for Mom’s to share...

First Day of School Chalkboard Photo And An After School Surprise

My first baby was off to Kindergarten today.  It has been a most exciting day for him, and a most difficult day for me, but no the less I always aim to make big days a little extra special!  The day started with the first day off school photo and I can’t wait for him to get off the bus to find a special little surprise. My little man has been really anticipating his first day of Kindergarten.  The day has finally arrived and I only have a couple more hours left before he gets off the bus and is back home  with me.  Wow, was that a difficult task to pack his lunch and say goodbye...
