Tiered Planter

Before moving I gave away quite a few of our in door plants.  Since we were moving so far I didn't want to worry about them moving, spilling or dying during the move.

DIY Fun Fabric Banner

When we moved up to Washington I decided to change a lot of the decor in Mae's room! Some of it she had outgrown and some just looked better with her old peach walls and not so great on the new white one.  Since we are renting I couldn't do anything permanent to the walls so I made a few  new wall hangings. One of my favorites and a fun little project was the fabric banner. It nice because you can customize it completely, from the size to the saying, to the colors. It can be a completely unique piece...

Especially when it comes to mommy and her makeup. You would think I would have learned but if I leave anything out on the sink by accident Mae will find it and will cover herself...
