Pantry Makeover

 I don't have a before photo but do have AFTER! Using some containers from the retiring "Store It In Style" store, ribbon, mailing labels and my computer printer here is my newly organized pantry!

Giraffe & I Spy Wall

D LOVES Giraffes.  Not sure how this came about.  I first learned about this love when Myka was watching them one night and asked him what his favorite animal was.  A giraffe.  I had no idea until she shared it with me AND it has NOT changed.  That was 3 years ago.  So when I went to paint his room it had to have a Giraffe wall.  BUT I couldn't just leave it at that SO it is a Giraffe I Spy wall.

Oatmeal COOKIE Pancakes

I got this recipe from my good friend Judy.  It is for Oatmeal Raisin Pancakes.
They are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good you'll think they're cookies!
Since I'm currently doing The 17 Day Diet I did use stevia instead of sugar other than that it's not too far off the diet and as stated above SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO yummy!  You MUST try these!  (I only had 15 minutes to soak the oats and didn't have quick oats.  They were a little crunchy because of this but I liked them that way.)

XOXO - Valentines Projects

Valentines Projects:
Valentine gifts for special people and special teachers:

I Ate A Rainbow

So I saw this THING in Family Fun or Parents Magazine about eating a rainbow.
It was a magnet this that would cost $25 per child  (plus shipping, handling and international fees from Canada.)
I knew I could do something similar and cheaper.

Typography Brothers

This is a sign that I made that hangs in my boys playroom.
I saw it many years ago in a catalog in the PAST tense.
WHY would anyone want it in the PAST tense?
AND charge $65 for a 12"x3" sign!
CRAZY!  I love a budget project. 
I just created this in my Corel PaintShop program and then had it printed and mounted on matboard at for less than $20.
Did I mention it's 12"x24"?
It's hanging above the basketball goal with a picture of the brothers on each side.
It is hanging via my FAVORITE command strips!
