DIY Reclaimed Barn Wood Computer Tray

I've heard that when you have a problem the best thing to do it acknowledge it. So, here is goes…

I am a workaholic. 

I am 100% without a shadow of a doubt a self proclaimed, constantly on the go, through and through workaholic. I think my biggest problem is my inability to sit still. I go absolutely stir crazy if I'm not constantly doing something with my time. In fact, even when I watch TV (which only happens on a very rare occasion) I am still working. Which brings me to my post today! 

Even though I am constantly working I still want to make time for my daughter. I've found that one of the best ways to do this is for us to do the same types of activities. For example, she loves playing on her LeapFrog or another similar learning app on our iPad and mimics me while I work. It's actually quite adorable :) Anyways, she can sit just about anywhere and be comfortable, but I on the other hand, cannot.

Rustic Christmas Tree Decor

This year, for some odd reason I had this gut feeling that our Christmas tree would be put in danger more than once. Call me crazy, but with Ava turning three a few months back and considering that we have three rambunctious dogs, I figured it would be a safe bet that this tree might topple over at some point.

How To Create a Reclaimed Wood Holiday Sign With a Stencil

It's official! The holiday season is on a roll, and I'm ready to finally decorate my home for winter. I have to admit, I just can't decorate for Christmas prior to 1 December. Why? I'm not exactly sure to be honest, but right after Thanksgiving I always get this bug to get festive and pull out the tree and figure out new holiday decor I can create.
