DIY...Yes please!

I love love love to DIY!!! I am a "do-it-yourself" kind of gal.
I love to give gifts that I have made by my own two hands...I love to make things for my kids...I love to decorate my house in things that I have made. But I have to say that I am not great at coming up with ideas myself. I also don't have a ton of money to spend on books and magazines where I can get ideas and instructions.
So what is a girl to do???
Google, blog search, and ask friends who are crafty savvy.
This is how my son's fifth birthday was created! I am now preparing for Princess party for a very special little girl...my own Lizzy Jane who is turning three very soon. So I have been googling away and looking at the many websites and blogs that come up and have been having a ball thinking of all the possible invitations and decorations to have. I am excited and ready to get to work.

Handy Friends

So I know I haven't posted in almost two months...and boy do I have a bunch of things that I need to get out there when I get the time to think them out.
But I just had to share what a great friend just made for my son.
First I have to say that one thing I love are homemade things...whether it be costumes for Halloween or furniture that will last a good long time.
So my friend Jim, who is very handy, offered to build me a much needed toy chest for my son! I can't tell you how excited I was to have him do this.
So here it is...

Now I just need to reorganize Jake's room. Let the fun begin!
