This isn’t exactly a DIY post, but I was asked to describe my ideal cozy day and I thought it would be fun, especially with winter coming up. Continue reading
I love the way a home smells when someone (not me) is cooking, especially cinnamon-ny baked goods.
The only problem with this is I don’t have the time or desire to bake every day, which is why I love this way to make my home smell like I do. Continue reading
I’ve been looking for a way to buy myself a few minutes to get dinner ready when the little people in our house need dinner NOW.
We have this little corner in our dining room that I can see from the kitchen and I thought it might be a perfect place to make an activity corner to keep kids entertained while they wait.
I’ve been thinking about this for a while but hadn’t come across exactly what I was looking for to make this happen.
Until I saw this little organizing shelf. It was perfect.
This rack actually was the perfect size to hold my yogurt tubs that I have an insane collection of. I just covered them in a fabric that matched the room using my DIY Mod Podge mixture.
I just cut the fabric to size and covered the tub in the glue, then the fabric and then painted another (liberal) layer of glue on top of the fabric.
Once that dried completely, I filled the tubs with game pieces and other items they would need in their corner.
We have a little table that we put in the corner and hung our new rack as low as possible so kids could reach the shelves.
Then we filled the shelves with the decorated tubs, markers, puzzles, activity books, and paper.
Then we hung the “Corner Rules” and that was it.
I think they are excited to have a little place of their own.
And I’m excited to have a few extra minutes to myself!
So, if you are like us and don’t have a ton of space, this activity corner is a great way to give your kids their own little area.

The first day of spring is coming up on March 20. To celebrate, I’m sharing a tip that isn’t very exciting but it’s important, so stay with me.
All winter long we deal with colds and flus and runny noses. We clean our sheets and towels and wipe down just about every area of our house. But for some reason we tend to forget about the one thing our hands touch all day long- our door knobs.
So, to really leave the winter and all its germs in the past, please join me in a good, old-fashioned door knob cleaning party.
Grab your favorite cleaner and a towel and take a walk around your house.
And while you’re at it, wipe down your toilet flusher handles.
Oh, and your cell phone.
