DIY Rustic Pallet Crate {tutorial}

This post is brought to you by Life Storage.

Good morning! How are you? Did you survive Christmas? ha! I love Christmas, but it can be a little bit stressful. ;) I’m ready to relax & possibly tackle some organization projects around our house once the kiddos go back to school next week. I love finding creative ways to store things around my home. That’s why I love this DIY Rustic Pallet Crate! You can use it to store extra pillows & blankets, toys, shoes or even in the pantry or mudroom. Annnnd best of all. it cost nearly nothing to make! It’s made up of mostly pallet wood that you can usually find for free. Yay!

Blessing Bags #LightTheWorld

Good morning! I hope you been following along on my facebook page as I have been sharing different ways to light the world each day this month leading up to Christmas. Every day has a new theme & a new way to brighten someone’s life this holiday season. I know my family has been blessed as we have tried to light the world this year. You can find out more & download a calendar to put on your fridge over at Mormon.org. It’s not too late to join! I am a den leader for a pack of crazy Cub Scouts at church. ha! So this year, I thought it would be fun to include them in a fun service project. This week we were able to make Blessing Bags for those that are hungry.

Good morning! Eek! Do you realized that we have exactly 2 weeks until Christmas? Yep! We are running out of time. ha! ;) If you are like me, you are still on the hunt for some of those last minute gifts, too. Annnnd one of the hardest ages to shop for is tweens. Don’t you agree? ;) They aren’t into the little kids things like toys & games, and they aren’t quite big enough for gifts you would give an older child. The good news is that I have found the perfect gift for my own tween daughter. Yay! She is super creative & loves to draw & Sharpie permanent markers have always been a favorite of hers. I found amazing gift packs at Target for an incredible deal, so I wanted to pass it along to you. I also have a tutorial for you today, too! Keep reading, & I’ll show you how to make some cute DIY Holiday Gift Tags to go along with your gifts this year. Let’s get started! :)

Christmas Fudge Gift Idea

This post is brought to you by Deseret Books.

Hello, friends! Christmas is just around the corner, and I wanted to give you the perfect gift idea to give to family & friends. Annnnnd this is also a tradition you might want to start as a family as well. Recently, I received the book Lieutenant Terry’s Christmas Fudge. Annnnnd I could not put it down. I read the entire book the day it came in the mail. It was that good! It is based on the true story of Lt. Wendell B. Terry who survived a horrific plane crash, and then he survived time spent as a prisoner of war in Germany during WW II. It’s a story of faith, service & miracles.
