laundry room remodel

This particular room and remodel has been a looong time coming! Our laundry room was the one room that had not been touched since we moved in 10 years ago-not even to add shelves or anything!

The KonMari method has been sweeping social media and the world at large, and swept me along with it!

Do you ever find projects from years ago and have fun … [Read more...]

We just wrapped Ava's 6th birthday party and it was so cute and fun! She chose a panda theme and I love how simple and fun it was! Black and white is a fun graphic punch and I added some pink in because Ava loves pink!
