Princess Project and a Freebie!

Good evening ladies! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend with your families and I hope you are still enjoying this time with them so I will make this short. I wanted to share with you a project that I did for my daughters room. Tiffany @Making the World Cuter made a tutorial on Super Hero Rules for her son. However, while writing this tutorial she included a picture of Princess Rules she made for her daughter and I fell in love. I loved it  so much I copied it word for word! The only difference is that I used a thick canvas with no frame. Thanks so much for the adorable idea Tiffany, my daughter loves it!

Now for the freebie! As promised I have made you a desktop for February! I have made it so you can customize it yourself but if you need any help I will be happy to customize it with 3 pictures and any other writing you would like for only 1 dollar! So if you would like me to customize it just shoot me and e-mail with your pictures and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Enjoy!

Gift Box Decorations

When I first saw the title of this post I thought what on earth is this woman talking about? Gift boxes? But I was curious so I kept reading and I am glad I did! Kaysi @ Keeping It Simple came up with an adorable, inexpensive, sane way for all of us moms out there to change our decor with each holiday! She has come up with this ingenious idea to go from this

To this for everyday use (you can hang pictures on the clothespins)

To this for Valentine's Day!

Wow! What a great idea! This is such a smart way to take something plain and make it beautiful. So this is the time where I have to live vicariously through you, my wonderful readers. I want to see all of the decorations you have made for this Holiday of Love since I am confined to a 10 x 10 room with minimal decorating room. But by September we should have our own place!!! Cross your fingers! So e-mail me your photos so I can feature them here! Enjoy!

2 Dollar Bookshelf Valentine's Re-do

Ok so I have this storage cabinet that I bought awhile from Target:




I have some fabric cubes that go into the compartments with no backs but the 5 other are decorative. I usually have some things on it but they are not very cute and I wanted to do something for Valentine's Day. So while shopping in the dollar section, which is my favorite place ever, I found these adorable packs of Valentine's Day paper. I bought a paper pack that had 8 sheets for 1 dollar and an embellishment pack for 1 dollar. I placed the paper on the bottom of the openings (I had to trim them a bit) and decorated on top of them. I also used some paper to wrap around a candle that I love the smell but it is orange so it does not match the decor. I then took an embellishment and added a ribbon and tied around the candle. Some more candles and pictures later and I love the way it turned out and all for 2 dollars! I hope this inspires you to look for great things in the dollar section or at the dollar tree to spruce up things you have in the house to make an amazing difference! Enjoy!
