{a weekend getaway…and a giveaway winner!}


Happy Monday!I do have a giveaway winner to announce today, and I apologize that I didn't have it up yesterday. It was for a very good reason though, and I think once you hear about it, you'll forgive me. It also means that I did not work on once project over the past week, so I have a lot to work on over the next few days! I'm excited about several things, so hopefully by the end of the week I'll have something new for you.I'm back to real life today, after a fabulous weekend in Chicago with my girlfriends! It's one of my most favorite cities, and if you haven't been before, I suggest you put it on your list of places to visit.

{a place for everything…with I Am Momma, Hear Me Roar}


Hi everyone! I am Cheri from I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar. At my place I love to blog about decorating, sewing, photography, projects for boys, and anything else that peaks my interest. I'm excited to talk about organizing because I secretly love organizing. It makes me really happy to have a place for everything and everything in its place. Today I'm going to show you how I stay organized (and sane) in my car with my two little guys. I have always had a container in my car with the necessities. However, as my boys grow their needs change. I used to always have a back up binky, diaper, blanket, etc. Now my youngest is 21 months, so I don't need any of those things. I need toys and … [Continue reading...]

{DIY army tanks}

army tank all four with men copy

I just had to laugh a little when I re-read the title of this post, lol. Don't see that everyday! If you have boys at your house, you might very well have some army men lying around. Well, we have a bin full, and my son really wanted some army tanks to go with his collection. My husband took him down to his workshop, and they made these together. This is a very simple project that's perfect for little helpers. Depending on how old your boys are, they can help with different aspects of it. My son Ryan loved the time with his dad, being able to learn about tools, and the finished product! You could also make them more detailed as well--this is just the basic idea. I don't have any of the … [Continue reading...]

{kiss me, i’m irish}

kiss me one copy

I wanted to do something fun for a few ladies that I visit each month, and when I saw the green Hershey kisses at the store, I knew I had found just the thing. I love having clear treat bags on hand. They are really inexpensive (you can get a pack of 20 for under $2 at Walmart), and are quite versatile. However, sometimes (like today) I find myself without any, so I always go to my backup--sandwich bags. Just cut the zipper part of the top, and you're set! Then I filled them with green Hershey kisses, and attached this cute tag: If you'd like to use it too, just right click on the image below, and save image as. Then open a blank Word file (or similar), and insert it as a … [Continue reading...]
