Crockpot cooking really gives me that head start on dinner and love that I can come home to a meal already prepared. The hostess … [Read more...]

♥ How to turn a Paper Bag into a Cute Purse Gift Card Holder

What a fun project I have to share with you today. My twin nieces just turned 10 and are into all of the girlie things like clothes.

Throw them in an "extra cuts" drawer and move … [Read more...]
