Carseat Safety Stickers

I am a Certified Child Restraint Technician and was asked this morning about creating some stickers that people could put onto their carseats with information about the children in the seat, in the event of an accident. Such a great idea! So I went ahead and created the following, which can be printed on sticker paper, filled out underneath with their personal info and attached to their seats.

Please keep in mind, don't place over another identifying sticker and also place somewhere easily seen by emergency personnel

Summer Fun List!

I keep meaning to blog on this so here I am!

On the day after the last day of school, Button and I sat down together and made a list of all the fun things we wanted to do this summer! We ended up with quite the list! Heres a copy of it to show you!

As you can see its quite the list! We're slowly but surely chipping away at the list ;) Today they knocked out another one! "Roll down a hill" check them out in action (sorry only a crappy camera phone picture)

They sure had fun! I think it was 5 straight minutes of this before they got bored and moved on... but it was good for lots of laughs!

And while they were doing this, I was enjoying this:

How did this happen!

Yesterday while I was trying to prepare a meal I had to dig through my casserole dishes to get to the one I needed. I stopped and looked around and thought, wait how did this happen! What a mess!  So it was put on my to-do list for today! Must fix up this cupboards!

So while Lemon napped today I set out! They started like this:

Supposed to be my tupperware cupboard 

Eek! What a mess!

And now my after photos:

This is going to be so much easier to get to! I even finally put my lid organizer to work! lol I bought it months ago and it had nothing in it all this time! Now I feel much better that Ill be able to just reach in and get what I need, without making an even bigger mess!

Next up - My lazy Susan and Pantry! But my little miss is now awake, so they'll have to wait! Stay tuned!

The Dresser Makeover

So Jaime and I havent had a proper dresser since we moved into our house. The last year Ive been watching peoples DIY projects and been dying to do a dresser! One day while shopping at Value Village I came across this beauty for sale for $20 and so the makeover began!

I had to get the dresser to my parents place as they have a garage I could fix it up in (we've had a lot of rain lately) and once there got lots of advice from my brother and my father. As I set out to sand the dresser, my brothers electric sander died and I had to hand sand it! Took me 3 hours to get it done!

Then came the painting. I did 3 coats of white paint on the dresser & drawers to get it perfect!

I decided to plurge and get the pretty glass handles I had been eying for months now! Im defintiely glad I did because it turned out perfect. All in all I spent around $90-$100 on material. For the price of real wood dressers these days I think I did great! I was able to buy material over time so it wasnt such a large about of money all at once, and in the end it was worth every penny!

And now, the after!!
