Updating a Mid-Century Modern Magazine Rack

Our house is a 1960's rancher, so we have designed our front living area in the Mid-Century Modern style to pay homage to the home's original era. My husband loves searching on ebay and craigslist for funky MCM finds to add to the living room decor.

Pampering Your Face With Masks From Imperial Glamour

Our face is the first thing anyone sees, so we want to keep it looking youthful and glowing. It takes a lot of work to achieve this and one of the ways to pamper your face is with masks. I am a low maintenance kind of girl, so I have only recently starting using face masks and special treatments, mostly to try to combat signs of aging.

Our face is the first thing anyone sees, and we want to keep it looking youthful and glowing. One way to pamper your face is with masks.

Doodling Sermon Notes in a Travelers Notebook

I am partnering with DaySpring to share a look at the new Illustrated Faith Doodles to Live By kit. All thoughts and opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small financial compensation if you make a purchase using this link

Do you have trouble keeping your mind focused on the pastor's message? I confess, this is something I struggle with every Sunday morning. I am guilty of allowing my mind to wander to mundane things, like what I am fixing for lunch, ideas for my next blog post, and even what I am going to wear tomorrow. I am embarrassed to share this with you, but I know I can't be the only one. We are busy people and it is hard to get our mind to slow down when it's used to multitasking all the time.

Keep your mind from wandering by Doodling Sermon Notes in a Travelers Notebook

That is where taking sermon notes comes in! I have only been doing this for the last few weeks, but it has helped me focus on the message and give me something to refer back to later.

The weather finally cooperated with my schedule so I was able to get my paint on!

I am jumping on the succulent train, y'all...thanks to my friend Erin at Faith Food Family Fun! I have been seeing them everywhere and they are so cute, plus they are pretty easy to care for. I picked up a few mini succulents on my last Home Depot visit and found some mini terra cotta pots at the Dollar Tree, so a project was born!

Bible Journaling - Organizing Your Supplies

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience

I have been Bible Journaling for about two years now and have collected an assortment of supplies. I use everything from colored pencils, paints, gelatos, and stamps to stickers and other ephemera. Up until recently, I had everything thrown in a medium sized basket and it was kind of a mess. When I saw the Everything Beautiful Bible Journaling Bag from DaySpring I knew I HAD to have it!

Camo print is not just for hunters anymore. It has been popping up all over in pants, scarves, shoes, tees, and even accessories.

But, seeing how cute it can be on other fashionistas has inspired me to try it!

Styling camo does not have to be intimidating if you follow a few  a few guidelines
