Button Flowers

What is it about buttons that I can’t help buying them even if I don’t sew that much? I love all of the different colors, shapes, sizes, and patterns they come in. Luckily they are also great for all kinds of craft projects. I remember seeing button flowers when I was young and thinking how pretty and dainty they were. These Button Flowers are so cute and easy to make. You’ll be hooked! You can mix and match any color of buttons to match your home decor or any holiday. They make such a sweet little bouquet.

I was reading an article about kids and minimalism and it made me think about my own kids and how we have dealt with clutter and organizing their spaces throughout the years. I wanted to share with you my thoughts on Kids and Clutter and how making them responsible for their own space helps them in other parts of their life also.

Here are my 7 tips to help your kids gain control of their space and have an environment they feel comfortable and peaceful in.

7 Ways to Decorate A Mantel for Summer

I think I would have to say the mantel is my favorite space to decorate. I often get asked how I can change my decor so often without spending a lot of money. Well, I have a secret.

I’m excited to share with you 7 Ways to Decorate a Mantel for Summer. You might see some repeat items but by changing the other things around them, they look different and you don’t notice that they’re being used over and over again.

Beach Themed Wood Signs

The upstairs kids bathroom sat void of wall art or any decorations at all for way too long. I think even if I had a lot of money I would still prefer to create my own home decor.

I’m sharing 10 Spaces to Organize in 15 Minutes easily. Hopefully you’ll get the organizing bug and continue organizing the rest of your house, or at least one room for now.
