Happy Saturday!!

This has been a crazy busy week for us!  I have been working really hard to get our basement and living room organized and decluttered.  After the renovation, we put things away, but haven’t tackled some of the big projects like actually getting rid of stuff.

I have the entire video tour of our basement (with a bunch of unorganized rooms) for your viewing pleasure.

And, I had a post over at Craft Box Girls in honor of National DIY Day coming up on April 2.  I will be doing a Facebook live with a kid craft, so stay tuned for an update on materials for the project!

Today I am over at the Imagine blog sharing an easy tutorial for sprucing up those gift bags using On Point Glue and thin pieces of paper.

DIY Quilling Birthday Cake

The process is called Quilling.  It is just rolling up paper and gluing it together to create different pictures or images.  I find the entire process super relaxing.
