Celebrate Easter with Oriental Trading

Spring is finally here!  I love the mild weather and sunshine.  Easter is a special time for me and my family.  It is a time of family and most importantly the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus.  

I work in the nursery at church on Sundays.  I love watching the babies grow and learn. We are handing out goody bags so I needed something that was age appropriate for infants and toddlers.

These He Lives booklets have illustrations for them to color but also have facts about the gospel.


These bright buttermints will be great for goody bags as well.  They each have a bible verse written on them.  So grab your mint, but learn a verse at the same time.


The kids also need an activity for them complete while in class.  I found this color your own tablecloth.  So not only will it keep the table at snack time clean, but the kids can color.


Snack time is important with my group.  They look forward to crackers and juice.  Easter is a special occasion, so cupcakes are in order.  This cupcake stand is perfect.  It's metal which means it is durable and easily comes apart for storage.



I picked up some goodies for my daughter's class too.  Not sure if they are doing any activities but thought it would nice to be able to hand something out to her classmates.

These activity booklets are cute.


I also got these bookmarks.  My daughter is quite the jokester so they are very appropriate.  Just a few more jokes to add to her bag.


So be sure to check out the fun items on Oriental Trading.

Look a Likes: Dining Chairs

Since I am in the process of giving our dining room a makeover, I have seen so many nice dining chairs out there.  I really loved the ones from West Elm but with me needing six chairs, that was going to totally blow my budget!  I found ones that were nearly identical at Walmart!



Check all your options before making a purchase.  You may find a better deal.

Round Mirrors

Since I am giving my dining room a makeover, I have been on the hunt for a piece to go above the console table.  I think an oversized round mirror would be perfect for this spot.  Round mirrors are clean and modern and would be very different from the sunburst mirror I had there before.  I think it will also help bounce the light around in here since the wall is darker.


I scored the internet looking for some options.  Some are more affordable than others.  I want to get the best bang for my buck and hubby isn't going for something expensive.  "It's just a mirror," he said.

DIY Acrylic Tray

Hump day!  We're half way there.

So glad my daughter's room is finally finished.  I love the gray walls with pops of color throughout.  Her desk is one of the areas she uses the most.  She likes to sit there and do legos or draw.  She tends to collect a lot of paper so I wanted a tray to corral all of it.  I made a simple acrylic tray in my office so it was a no-brainer to make one for her too.


I bought a plastic frame from Michael's and some pretty scrapbook paper.


Cut the paper to size to fit into the frame.


Boom!  Done!  So simple but so cute!


Here it is on the corner of her desk.  I love how it's not bulky and since it's clear, you can still see the desk.  It doesn't always stay as clean as I'd like it, but it works.


What's the easiest project you've tackled lately?

In case you missed it, the room reveal is here.

Time for Spring Style

Spring is quickly approaching people!  That means warmer temps and more daytime outings.  It also means new clothes and accessories to accommodate those temp changes!  Thankfully my husband understands that and likes to get in on the shopping action too.  Over the years his style has matured and he likes to look good when we go out.  I must say he has a good sense of style.

One thing my husband loves to have is a good watch.  He tends to go for name brands so they aren't going to be cheap.  Let's be real, a watch is probably one of the only accessories a man wears so it should look good and stand out.  A watch should also be of quality and last a long time.  Accessories also elevate the outfit am I right?  My stylish fella likes to dress and having a fashionable watch on his arm kicks things up a notch.

I jumped at the chance to partner with JORD.  They are a maker of unique wood watches powered by Swiss movement.  The natural woods are hand-finished and treated with tung oils to preserve the wood.  Along with a sapphire crystal face, they are made for durability.  They also come with a one year warranty.  You can even have your watch or case engraved for a special touch.

Hubby chose the Reece watch in walnut and navy.  I love the warm wood tone with the navy face.  The watch arrived in a black box marked by the JORD name.  Inside was a beautiful wooden box.  It's great for storing the watch and keeping a few small keepsakes underneath.  Upon opening the box, we could immediately smell the fresh wood.  This watch was more gorgeous in person than online.


This men's watch looks great on his arm and will go with just about anything he wears.




They also have a nice selection of women's watches too.

The best part for you guys is that you have a chance to win $100 for the purchase of your own watch!  When you use the link below to enter, you automatically receive a $25 voucher.  There so many choices to choose from.

Enter to win here!  The giveaway ends on March 19 at 11:59 pm.

Girl's Room Reveal

Good morning fine folks!  This moment has been a long time coming.  I expected this makeover to be quick and painless but it has dragged on for months.  I know.  I know.  I knew what I wanted to do but not finding some pieces that I wanted caused me to run behind schedule.

Let's get to it shall weCaution yourself as there are lots of pictures.

I wanted her room to have a focal wall but I knew I didn't want to use paint.  I found these gold polka dot decals and my girl loved them.  I was originally going to do a pattern but my daughter liked the idea of free falling dots instead.  This actually saved me a headache of trying to measure and figure out where each dot went.  It was a win for us both. 


The biggest change in the room was probably the wall color change.  It was previously green.  I really liked this color when we moved in and painted but I felt like it was limiting what I could do in the room.


The gray feels softer and actually makes the room seem larger.  It was weird after the room was painted to walk by and there be a glow coming from her room.  The room bounces the light around from the window.


Wall color: Behr Silver Sateen / wall decals / headboard
bedding / gold heart pillow / watercolor pillow




Her desk is on one side of the room.  She loves to sit here and write and put together her legos.

desk / pinboard / desk lamp

I found the calendar and cute banner at Target.  They go perfectly on her pinboard.  I like using the little colored pails for pencils and markers.







I ended up painting the mirror above her dresser gold.  I wasn't sure how I liked it but she does, so I left it.  She wanted everything spray painted gold.  Many of her accessories were transformed by the gold like the cute little piggy bank and smile word on her dresser.


The picture on the dresser is one of my favorites of her.  I wrapped her lamp shade in new fabric to better coordinate with the rest of the room.


Across from her bed is the gallery wall.  We decided to stick with pinks, blues, white, and gold.  This print from Minted is the star of the wall.  I loved this print the moment I saw it.  It had all the colors we were going for and it had a playful effect with the watercolors.


Most of the other prints are DIY that I printed and stuck in the white frames from the previous gallery wall.  I love that we stuck to a simple color palette.  It really cut down on the busy-ness that was here before.



 

We bought this storage unit once the Trofast went to little man's room.  It came from Target.  We chose colored bins that matched the rest of the room.  Inside she keeps all those wonderful, tiny lego pieces that hurt when you step on them.  Ouch!

 
She insisted on a chair for this corner by the window.  We found this moon chair at And That!  It's a sister store to The Christmas Shops.  The color was perfect.  The pink hexagon shelves are from Target dollar spot.





Whew!  So many pics I know but I had to show you everything!

I love how this room turned out.  My daughter is super happy about it and I think the gray turned out to be a good choice.  My husband told me he wasn't painting it again so this choice better be what I want for a long time.  Thanks babe!
