Master Closet Makeover {One Room Challenge} Week 2 – Inspiration and Plan

Hey there friends! How is it already time for an update?!? Seriously though this One Room Challenge is no joke! I love the community and I love the push to just get.it.done. Thanks to all my cheerleaders from last week – you made me feel like I wasn’t crazy! 😉

Spring 2016 ORC

Guess what starts this week!?! The spring session of the One Room Challenge {ORC}! The One Room Challenge is an awesome 6 week blogger challenge designed and hosted by Linda from Calling It Home.

 ORCblue

Through this challenge I believe she has helped hundreds of us bloggers/DIYers to start and finish rooms that we were otherwise dragging our feet on! The idea of course is to begin and finish a room in six weeks, while posting weekly updates on your blog. My favorite part of the ORC is the encouragement from everyone else that is in the trenches with you. It’s our own little community of crazy, committed, get-er-doners! {yes, I just made that word up}

Wide-eyed and full of anticipation.

And today we are so very proud of the man he has become

and we are so excited for what God has in store for his future!!


I have been doing some craft therapy this week to help make the festivities special and to keep my mind focused on the happy of the day!!


Next week it will be this guys turn.  🙂


Our youngest is promoting out of 5th grade and onto middle school.  Yes, that’s right. After 13 years of having someone in elementary school, we are finishing that phase of life.  Only teens and pre-teens from here on out.  Prayers appreciated!!  What a journey parenthood is!! Thankful to God for every moment. 🙂
