I had a hard time narrowing down all of the adorable February wallpapers I found out there! Some of these are from years past, but you can download the version without a calendar on it, so it won’t really matter. I know there are other things besides Valentine’s Day in February, but I just couldn’t get away from all of the cute pinks and hearts.
It feels a little early to be decorating for Valentine’s Day already, but my husband reminded me that if I want to enjoy my cute V-Day decor I better get it up soon. So…here it is – some Goodwill frames and some FREE printables make for some quick and easy seasonal art.
You can download the .jpg files below each image in either the 8 x 10 or 5 x 7 size.
Call me a design nerd, but I love changing my desktop and iPhone wallpaper each month – It’s like hanging up seasonal decor, only on your computer!
At the beginning of each month I do a quick online search and find something new for my laptop, our desktop and my iPhone. I know, it’s unnecessary, but it’s pretty and it makes me smile every time I see it.
I thought I’d round up some of my favorites from around the web and include one I designed that you can download here for free!
It’s a sad day in our house today – we’re taking down the Christmas decorations.
Part of me wants to keep them up all year, but part of me is tired of telling the kids to leave the tree alone and is ready to have my living room back.
Here are some of my favs from around our house – one last glimpse before they get packed up and head to the garage.
It’s crazy how bare my house looks once I take it all down – makes me realize I need some more everyday decor. By the way, how do you decorate in January? Snow? Snowmen? It doesn’t snow where I live in Arizona, so it seems kinda funny to decorate with snowmen/snowflakes – it was almost 70 degrees here today!
Maybe I’ll go with a New Year theme – I could always use this printable I designed yesterday or some of the ones from my Etsy shop.
I know my blogging has been sporadic at best – more like non-existent over this last year. It’s amazing what having a third child does to turn your life upside down! I am setting some goals for the blog for 2014 and hoping to get into a better routine – I miss blogging!
So, to start off the year – I thought I’d give away a free New Year’s printable!
and a white version

Cell phone cases. I have always had issues with cell phone cases. I mean, I want my phone to be adorable, but I also want it to be protected – and I don’t want to pay a ton of money. Have you seen the prices of some of those cases?! Yikes. My last iPhone case was from the clearance section at TJMaxx – it said it was supposed to fit my phone, but somehow the camera hole was cut wrong and it covered the flash, so I had to pull it off if I ever wanted to use the flash. Yes, it was pretty ghetto, but it cost me $4!
my new Shutterfly case!
Now, my phone not only has a fully functional flash, but I also get tons of compliments on the case every single day.
It’s a photo iPhone case from Shutterfly and it is so cute. It was super easy to design using the templates on the Shutterfly site and it came in less than a week. I got it a few months ago and was curious to see how it would hold up. My phone gets a lot of use (from the 2 crazy boys who play Angry Birds) and it’s been dropped its fair share of times and this case has held up great. It does exactly what you hope a case will do – protects your phone – this case just looks great while doing it.
Now that we’ve added a new family member, I want to get an update with new family pictures (in these pics, he was still in my tummy). Check them out - I think you’ll love them as much as I do!
