Craft Room + Home Office

Hey there friends! I’ve been sharing lately on Instagram of the #greatroomswapof2019 that’s been happening here at our house. As soon as our older kids started moving on to college and beyond the younger kids were always vieing for the larger room. Out of the three bedrooms, one is in the corner and quite a big bigger than the other two. So, as always, when our daughter moved out, our middle son was asking to switch rooms. This always means painting, moving furniture, taking stuff off the wall, putting stuff on the wall, etc. This time also included making my youngest son go through his hoard stuff. And, yes, since middle son was moving, youngest son decided he would move too, so more of all of the same. But….the best part of it all was I realized we would actually have an empty bedroom. I thought about (for about a second) making it into an official guest room, but then I decided to make it all mine. That’s right, a dedicated craft room + home office! I’m so excited!! Here is what we are starting with.

Valentine’s Day Table 2019

We are one week away from the day of love! Are you ready? Do you celebrate really? Hubby and I don’t do a lot, a small gesture to each other but nothing big. We haven’t gone out ON Valentine’s Day but maybe once or twice our whole married life, because when we did it was crazy crowded and not that much fun. We can go out to dinner any time and it will be just as special. But, I do sometimes set a pretty table for our family and make a special dinner. I have even been known to make everyone dress up for dinner. 🙂 I’m sharing with you today another simple tablescape that might inspire you to do the same!

Heart Stenciled Tea Towels/Napkins

Happy February friends! It’s the month of love, but it’s also my birthday month!  😀 I haven’t done any Valentine’s decorating this year. Not sure why, just haven’t really felt like it. Haha! But, as I was moving things around in the kids rooms this weekend I found these tea towels that I bought from IKEA a while back and decided that they would make adorable Valentine’s napkins. Did you know tea towels = napkins?? Ha! Well, I think these tea towels are a little on the small side so I think they will work just fine! Maybe a little big but fine. 🙂
