DIY Makeup Light for Bathroom

January is normally clean up month—the hustle and bustle of the holidays are behind us and we all feel like simplifying. I was asked to participate in a “get clean” blog hop. Lots of fabulous ideas will be shared (please click through on some of the great ideas below my post)….cleaning, diy, storage, organizing….all of it aimed to help you get your clean on! :)

I wanted to share with you an easy way to shed a bit more favorable lighting. I really do think it can make or break the start to your day—begin with a positive—and hopefully that will be the direction for your entire day.

wp-1451851206346.jpeg Hi guys! Are you ready to get back into the swing of the routine? It always seems like Monday start so abruptly after New Years. Part of me really enjoys getting back into the daily routine of things and part of me really misses waking up without an alarm clock and having the kids hang out with me. We had such a good family time over the past couple of weeks… not as many places to be… lots of vegging out and watching movies… taking walks ….making cocoa. I hope that you had a nice extended holiday with your families. I was so excited last night too watch Downton Abbey! I still can’t believe that it is the last season for the series. I’m going to miss these characters so much!

    No sew interchangeable window valance

    Hey yall! Hope you had a fabulous weekend. I have had this project finished for awhile now….but I realized that I never share it with you! I was looking to add a bit of color to the kitchen window and this simple no sew valance popped into my mind. I wanted something that I could change out from time to time…maybe swapping the fabric out during different seasons. This is an easy project that you can pull together in about an hour.
