You-are-my-sunshine-1st-birthday-party-themeYou-are-my-sunshine-invitation-and-party-favor-ideasI love a good party theme (you can see here and here) and since this was the LAST 1st birthday party I was going to throw (sniff sniff, just thinking about it makes me so sad), I knew it had to be a good one.  Our sweet Nash is literally our little sunshine, he cracks us all up all day long, so it was only fitting that it should be his theme.  This party was so much fun, and I did a few extras this year that made it even more special with a personalized book, invitations and even a poster picture print all from Mixbook.  Read all about the DIY’s, the cake smash fail and the one thing I regret never doing for all my other boys’ first birthdays.

Homemade laundry detergent….something I was always kind of “eh” about.  It seemed like a lot of work when I could just buy it.  And does it even work as well?  I was a skeptic for SURE.  But let me tell you my mind has officially been changed!!  I am now the biggest fan EVER of making my own laundry detergent.  It seriously takes all of 10 min to make, lasts for so long, smells amazing, is inexpensive and works great.  And I must admit….the teal and pink colors aren’t too bad either!  Perfect and so pretty as a housewarming gift, or on your shelf in the laundry room.  I’ve teamed up with Samsung to share how to make your own laundry soap and a look at my dream laundry room, featuring their amazing new FlexWash + FlexDry duo (seriously- it would be a complete game changer when it comes to the amount of laundry that needs to be done in this house).  Because pretty soap needs a pretty place to go, am I right?

DIY SMALL STORAGE BOXES

I love cute storage.  I am instantly drawn to it no matter what store I’m in, EVEN when I don’t have something to put in it.  But there are ALWAYS things that need to be organized so I figure its ok ha am I right!?  Just trying to justify my senseless purchases ha ha.  I found these cute acrylic boxes and knew I wanted to do something different and fun to them.  I usually gravitate towards color but because the containers were clear I wanted the contents to pop more than the container.  My office has lots of wood accents so I wanted to create a wood lid to match.  I LOVE how these small storage boxes turned out!  You can leave the lid plain or paint them!  AND the best part?  No wood cutting skills required ;)  Read more about the whole DIY below.
