How to make a Bible journal with no time or talent

Given that I’m an maker and a Christian, the idea of a Bible journal absolutely intrigues me. In an effort to learn more about it I’ve invited fellow homeschooling mom Kari from Stone Soup for Five to give us the low-down. She even titles it well it for those of us who aren’t quite so creative…

Farmhouse Cottage Dining Room Inspiration

Despite being SUPER busy, we’re working on our dining room. Oh yes, we are. We may or may not be a little insane. I don’t think you can prove it one way or the other though. (Don’t ask about the entryway we started working on – we’ll fill you in later.) Anyway, we loved the…

Mudroom Closet

The bi-fold doors took up too much room and there was no organization in this space. After removing everything BJ inserted a seat and cubbies along with a special place to put mail.  Total bonus: BJ added a shower curtain rod up above the door to hang clothes until completely dried. The hangers store conveniently out…

Decorating with Gold

What images come to mind when I  type “gold décor”? Do you think of rich, luxurious interiors with gold-leaf furniture and gold-toned chandeliers? Or perhaps you think of lightly gilded frames and only the smallest hint of the warm on-trend sunny hue? Gold is a stunning metal; sparkly and warm and elegant. All at once opulent,…
