Jewellery Storage!!

How do you store your jewellery? Do you use anything like this? I sure WISH I used something as glamorous as those… My jewellery is actually very unorganized and can be found partly in my jewellery box.. and in a wicker basket. My eldest daughter seems to have the same messy habit as I do when it comes to jewellery (she puts them everywhere).  To solve this problem, my hubby and I are going to make her a jewellery box/stand for Christmas.  Of course, we’ve never really built anything like this before.. so my father will be helping us greatly in this project. BTW, Check … {continue reading}

Lemon-Blueberry Crumb Bars!!

YUMMY!!! Source: Kraft Foods A few weeks ago I went blueberry picking and came back with 11 lbs of blueberries!!  Instead of freezing them all at once.. or using them all to make blueberry muffins, I decided to try the Lemon-Blueberry Crumb Bars recipe I found on the Kraft Food website. This recipe is sooooo YUMMY!!!  It’s not too expensive to make and is quite easy to put together.  My whole family loved it and they aren’t much into desserts normally.  I’m definitely going to make some again.. they are so refreshing. Ingredients: 1/2 cup butter 1 pkg. (2-layer size) yellow cake mix 2 eggs, divided … {continue reading}

Daily Planner!!! Part 2

A few weeks back I blogged about a Daily Planner I was planning on making for myself. You can find the post here. I’ve completed the calendar and the weekly sections. I really love how they turned out. They are simple and crisp looking. Daily Planner Monthly & Weekly Planner Sheets As you can see I left them generic, I will fill in the dates myself.  With this method I won’t need to recreate this document every year with the new dates… unless I decide to change the layout.  Which could very well happen.. hehe  But for now.. I LOVE … {continue reading}
