When a house is for sale, it is a good idea to stage it with furniture so the future home buyer can visualize how they could set it up. Plus, it looks a lot better and adds more character to the home. Homes sell a lot faster when they are staged correctly. This house was brand new and very nice so it was a pretty easy job! We decorated the kitchen, dining room and family room.
I like to decorate very clean and simply...big chunky pieces of furniture is the key and then add a few decor pieces. A mirror in an entry way opens up the space.
When I first saw this family room, I thought it was a funky shape...but once we got the furniture in and the tv on the wall, it warmed it up and it felt like home!
For the kitchen we used turquoise and yellow as our colors to give it a fun, upbeat feeling. I made some signs and put them in frames (download for free below), found some funky cups and bowls and displayed them I added a few other decor pieces.
This home is 3000 square feet and the price is $379,900. It is located in my favorite brand new subdivision in Saint George, Utah in the Little Valley area.

I usually have a pretty good attitude on life. I am a positive person naturally and I like to look on the bright side of things in most cases...but some days just suck and I would like to hit the fast forward button! I have tried to train myself on these low point days, to change my mindset and to create a different situation. I believe that we can create whatever we want in life. These are 2 of my favorite quotes that help me on days like this and keep my head above water. Stay Awesome!!! Download for free below.
The laundry room isn't the first place you would think to decorate, right? Well, it's the first room that I decorated in my new house because it is easy and inexpensive! Check out the before picture on all the stuff that I used...not very impressive, but with some spray paint, glass jars and some old frames I was able to make this laundry room a happy place to be!
I wanted to decorate with things that I use, so I bought Oxi Clean, detergent packets, Downy Clear (cause its white, and I wanted it to match) and the pink Downy Unstoppable's. I bought the Valspar spray paint from Lowes and all the glass jars from Target. I put the fabric softener in a large glass old fashioned drink container with a spout...I love it, even though it looks like milk! I painted all the lids and frames...created some cute laundry quotes (download for free below) and printed off some pictures of my kids playing in water. I spend sooo much time in the laundry room, so I am so glad that I have something fun to look at!!
This is what I started with
My life has been a tad bit busy lately, so I apologize that my postings on the blog have been scarce this week! I will be posting a lot over the next few days...I have an amazing recipe for a Lemon Creme Cake that would be perfect to make on Mothers Day, pictures of a couple of fun design projects that I am working on, and a challenge that I am going to give to all of my readers...oh, it will be so FUN! First, I want to post this fun questionnaire that I created for kids to answer about their moms or about their grandmas. It makes a wonderful present for Mothers Day because all of the answers tend to be so funny!!

It seems like tragedy is happening all around us, and recently my daughter has a friend who's dad passed away unexpectedly. In these situations it's hard to know how to help, what to say or what you can do. We wanted to brighten her day, so we came up with an idea to give her a Tub Full of Sunshine!
We began by going to Target and finding anything that was yellow, orange or hot pink! We got this awesome tub there for only 7 bucks and it fit everything in it perfectly! The key is to get big stuff for the bottom that doesn't cost a lot of money...we got a huge thing of bubbles, soda, gatorade and a big bag of chips for the filler, then we arranged all the smaller things on top and it looks like it is stuffed full of fun.
After we arranged everything, we wrapped cellophane around the tub and attached this tag to the top (download for free below)!
Here is the final product...I think this would make anyone smile!
These are the perfect gift tags to put on ANY present for ANY women on Mothers Day! They will print out perfectly on a 4x6...you'll just need to cut off the white corners and punch the hole, put some ribbon on it and tie it to the gift!
Mothers Day is May 12th...get on it my friends!
