Tips for Keeping the Kids Safe During a Move

Moving is already stressful enough. So, when you add adventurous toddlers to the mix, the stress levels rise by ten.

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.

Upgrading to Accommodate a Large Family

If you have a large family that consists of six or more people you know all too well the labor of love that goes into each day. Your day starts with getting children ready for school and ends with loading up the dishwasher before heading to bed. Having a big family comes with its challenges. Regular size items such as pots and pans, dishwashers, washing machines and even vehicles just don’t offer the amount of room you need to make life easier. Luckily, there are alternatives that can provide you with the size and space you need to complete tasks and enjoy time out together as a family.

DIY Crafts: DIY Lampshade Cover

This lampshade cover is a wonderful idea. You see, it's attached to the lampshade via velcro. Easy to remove and clean if you have little kids who like to use their cheesy covered fingers to turn on the lamps, while grabbing the lampshade in the process. Oh wait, reliving that one, back to the craft.
