Laundry Room Inspiration~

I am a renter.  This is common knowledge if you've read my blog for any length of time.  We live in a three bedroom townhouse.  With four children, let's just say it's quite "cozy".  So this is the year that we are going to make a change.  In fact, we're planning on building a new home (more on that later, so stay tuned).

Helping people design their new homes is what I do for a living.  I LOVE it!  It's so fun to take a blank canvas and create a beautiful home.  It's exciting to pick cabinets, flooring, paint colors.  All those choices that together make a space what it is.  

Here's the only problem with being an interior designer for a home builder, and building a home myself.  I see too much.  I fall in love with too many options.  And another thing you have probably noticed if you've read my blog for any length of time is that I'm a bit fickle when it comes to decor.  I have a *teensy* problem with liking to change things out.  So narrowing down my own choices for finishes is a bit challenging.  And that's putting it mildly.

One of the things I'm most excited about is the fact that I can have a real live laundry room.  That might sound funny, but I've been living with this laundry closet for the past three years.  

It's cute and colorful, but my love of its bright color and bold pattern is waning.  And my laundry was in the basement for the two years before that...and in my half bath for two years before that.  Again  - a cute space - but "hello!"  it was the guest bathroom.

DIY Easter Wooden Wreath

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Duck Brand for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love Washi Tape and I love Duck Brand®!  So when I was challenged to make something out of some Duck Brand Craft Tapes  I jumped at the chance!
Once I received the package with this adorable washi tape inside, it immediately said "spring" to me, and more specifically "Easter", so I started thinking of some fun Easter decor I could make.  I eventually hit on the idea of making an Easter wooden wreath wall hanging.

I started by finding some wooden picture frames.  These are available at your local craft store and are relatively inexpensive (a big bonus in my book!).
