One Person’s Trash is Another’s Treasure


I absolutely love to “upcycle”!  It’s so fun to transform something from just okay to fab!

I had to pick these outdated, ugly bill organizers up at a second hand store. They brought back memories of my Auntie Ellen’s house.  She had a bill organizer like this full of envelopes and hanging tons of keys.   I had grand plans to transform them into stylish bill organizers!  I am totally in love with the way they turned out!  Makes me want to organize some bills…kinda…

Have any great trash to treasure projects you love?



Dreaming of Warm Weather and Sandy Beaches!


Anybody else dreaming of a vacation?!  My first choice would be the ocean.  Ahhhh, the beach…  My second choice and true love is the mountains.  Beautiful, glorious mountains!  Where would be your ideal vacation?

The other day I told my husband we should make a trek to Yellowstone this summer.  He looked at me like I had lost my mind…he gives me that look often I’m afraid!  We seriously talked about it, but decided maybe to stay closer to home this summer and try for Yellowstone next summer.  Give the girls another year.  I will have to share my “Yellowstone Vacation” story with you some time. 😉

Beyond just dreaming of a big vacation I am dreaming of small vacations on the weekends – going camping!  I  I can’t wait until it gets warm enough to start packing up our gear and camping for the weekend!  Seriously, one of my most favorite activities!

I am inspired to make a quick album about our camping trip last fall.  And it just so happens I have a coupon for Shutterfly which expires tomorrow.  (Am I the only one who puts these off until the last minute?)  So, off to document the girls fishing, J eating the worm dirt, s’more making, and memories!
