How Google Home Makes Mom’s Life Easier

I’m just going to come out and say it… I have a very busy daily schedule and it can be chaotic at times. As a work-from-home mother of a pre-teen in homeschool and a toddler who refuses to nap, my life can be go go go go go from the moment I wake up until the moment I go to bed.

DIY Deer Antler Decor Piece

You see them everywhere: bookshelves in your friends’ homes, sitting off to the side in a magazine spread on decorating and for sale in many different shapes and sizes. Deer heads and rhino heads have become trendy statement pieces in today’s modern home. Most antlers I’ve seen are single and usually laying atop a pile of books on a bookshelf or on a coffee table. A lot are painted gold or dipped partially in gold.
