Clip photo holders

I made clip photo holders from this tutorial by Debbie Kalustian ( ) and loved them!

Another easy idea is to use scrapbooking paper to line envelopes. The result is very elegant and personal.

Valentine's Garland

I could never get a good picture of it, but this was my Valentine's garland. It was a simple theme of conversation hearts made of paper and strung on ribbon. It actually looked quite adorable, and my daughter really got into helping me make it. She ended up cutting valentine hearts for the whole month! I'll definitely use the idea for other holidays.

A Happy Home

What makes a home happy? As a homemaker, and as a family member, it is my hope and my dream to make a happy home for my loved ones. What things can women do to foster this happiness, to create this place where people want to be in? That's what I will be exploring in my blog.

"As you create a home, don't get distracted with a lot of things that have no meaning for you or your family. Don't dwell on your failures, but think of your successes. Have joy in your home. Have joy in your children. Have joy in your husband. Be grateful for the journey."
