When I’m in the middle of making, I am always wondering what other projects are on my list. The challenge is that makers tend to keep their hands full with scissors, glue, tape, decorative papers, etc. and it’s not easy to stop the flow and enter a password to look at the list on one’s phone mid-craft. Now I can just glance up from my station and see what’s on my DIY Craft Menu Board! Besides, I craft more than I cook at this point so who needs a dinner menu? 😉
That reminds me: it’s time to cook up more tried-and-true recipes for the blog! While you’re keeping dialed in for the how-to on my DIY Craft Menu this week, make sure to keep your eyes peeled for hints about upcoming spring and Easter recipes!! Got some goodies up my wanna-be confectioner’s sleeve!

Do you ever feel like you need to create more “white space” in your inbox to give your mind a vacation? For the past 11 months, I’ve been using Unroll.Me email management to save some of the time I spend viewing personal emails, freeing up valuable hours on my nights and weekends. How do they do it? You get one email once a day in a newsletter-like style for all of your subscriptions. And the best part is that you can see all of your subscriptions and unsubscribe to any junk emails you don’t want right off the bat with a single click! Explore More
I’m so excited because I’m BlogLovin’!!!! I’ve tried several blog readers before, but until now I have never found one I like as much as this platform. I’m already following some of my favorite blogs, saving posts that inspire me and seeing what my friends are reading. Now any time I see a blog or post I like, I have a one-stop-shop to save it in…it’s kind of like creating an online file folder for my digital magazine clippings! Gotta love organization–whether in “real life” or online!
Feel free to follow me and my progress in my life space there as well!

Lately I have been busy with nursery preparations to ensure a tranquil life space for our future baby. We ordered the convertible crib I picked out, we received the desired nine piece bedding set as a shower gift, we have a changing table (which was formerly my craft desk), a dresser (which was given to me by my grandparents when I was a baby), and we have an organization plan for the closet. We painted the nursery using two different paint techniques (both of which are ombre!), and if all works out, we will order my favorite glider and ottoman as soon as it is available in retail stores. [See update below.]
I am so very excited to provide details on items selected for the nursery. One of the items I am most excited about [that my husband will pick up for me in LA since it is only sold in stores] is the IKEA MASKROS Pendant lamp; the website says that it “projects decorative patterns onto the ceiling and the wall” which is one of my favorite features about the light fixture. I also like that it might abstractly translate as sea urchins when surrounded with my selected decor, which would support my “under the water” theme. [See update below.]
I do hope you check back for more details and pictures over the coming months as we prepare a space that the baby is sure to love!Update: Since this post, I have added the nursery pictures to the gallery. Feel free to lemme know what you think; I’m evaluating whether to carry this theme forward into his room in our next home.
