DIY ~ Pyramid Stud Wall Decor

Hi lovelies!  I feel as though my condo is in an ever-changing state of decorating.  I'm constantly reassessing what I've done and what I can still do to further incorporate my glam mountain resort condo theme I've chosen.  I have this empty space above my desk that is the backside of the kitchen (is it bad that I use my dining room as my crafting room rather than it's intended use?) which I've struggled with for years.  I hung some foam core board to use as my inspiration board, but the plain spot of wall between that and the ceiling has perplexed me.

I finally had a brainblast (Jimmy Neutron fans? Anyone?) and thought that I wish I could just put some huge pyramid studs up there.  So I hit my recycling bin, dug out some cardboard, and got to work. {Click to keep reading, and to see how I made these!}

DIY ~ Dirty / Clean Dishwasher Magnet

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser.  All opinions are mine alone. #Sparkly Savings #Collective Bias

Hi lovelies!  Today I've got a fun yet super practical DIY for ya, in partnership with Finish Dishwasher Detergent!  I can't tell you how many times I've heard the excuse from my kids that they couldn't put their dishes in the dishwasher because they weren't sure if it was dirty or clean.  I'm sure everyone can relate to this, whether it's kids, roommates, or even yourself!  So I wanted to make a magnet so that way there'd never be any uncertainty again (unless one forgets to spin it or something!)

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty brand-loyal for dishwasher detergent.  I only use Finish products, because they friggen work better than any other I've tried.  I even use the Booster in conjunction with the tabs so my dishes are extra clean.

You just put it in the pre-wash dispenser, pop a tab in the main dispenser, and you're good!  It's so easy, my kids have to do it as part of their chores.  But that's after we can get them to rinse off their dishes in the sink and load them into the dishwasher.  I wished there were a way to let them know if the dishes were clean or dirty, and I figured a fun and easy DIY!  {Click for the how-to and for some awesome #SparklySavings on Finish Detergent!}

Spark the Swiffer Effect With the Big Green Box

Hi lovelies!  Today I'm talking to you about Swiffer and its awesome Big Green Box.  I was recently sent 2 (!) Big Green Boxes from Swiffer - one to keep and one to give to a friend/family member.  I'm such a huge fan of Swiffer's products because they make life sooo much easier and they work great.  What more could you want? 

I was so stoked to get a new sweeper and both wet and dry pads.  My kiddos think it's the coolest thing ever and fight over who gets to do it.  Seriously, it's pretty awesome.  The dusters are so great, I won't dust any other way.  And again, the kids think it's so rad and they want to dust for me.  It's so fun for them to be able to share in the chores especially now that they're getting older and they want an allowance.  This makes life easier for me because they can mop the floors and dust everything for me - 2 of my most hated chores.  {Click to see who I gave the other box to!}

Easy After School Snacks for Kids

Hi lovelies!  Today I'm sharing some of my fave, easy after school kids snacks.  I think when I was in high school, these were my favorites too.  My oldest can handle heating things up in the stove, so it's perfect for her to do.  The best part is these are some filling but easy to make snacks for them to make so they can hang in there until I get home and make dinner.  {Click for more!}
