Keeping up with the latest trends can be an expensive exercise, but it doesn't have to be.
My daughter is currently obsessed with pillows. She even asked for more pillows for Christmas, for not only her bed but also the bench in her walk-in closet.
When I came across some plain pillows just waiting to be decorated at Michael's I couldn't resist picking up a couple (with a coupon of course). So today I'm over at Divine Lifestyle showing you how easy it is to turn any plain pillow into a word pillow.
Head on over, grab the tutorial, and you'll have fun new pillows in just a few minutes. They also make great handmade gifts.

There is no such thing as balance.
There is no such thing as a perfect life.
We are all just trying to do the best we can, with the 24 hours we have each day. Sometimes we feel like we are failing, and other days we feel like a damn parade should be thrown in our honor for all we've accomplished.
In the age of people having 'social media perfect' lives, let's keep it real for a few moments. Because nobody has a perfect life. And nobody believes that because you say that your life couldn't be more perfect on social media, that it's the truth. I think the recent tragic deaths of celebrities (who to those of us who didn't know them felt they 'had it all') has finally inspired more people to start being more authentic. I've seen more people speaking up. More authenticity. Because no amount of money or fame means you are not going through something on a deeper more personal level. Money doesn't equal happiness. People are struggling, whether it be in relationships, financially, physically, emotionally, or mentally. And people need to know that they are not the only ones struggling, that there are others out there struggling too, who are there to listen, to be a shoulder, to help if they can. We need to celebrate wins with one another, but also be there when things aren't going so great.
Now that school's out for the summer and the kids have stripped the classroom walls bare from their artwork, which is now in a giant pile on your kitchen counter, or in my case, in a giant pile on the floor next to my office desk, it's time to think about what to do with it all.
I love seeing my work featured around the web and in print, however, please only use one image (which should be credited and linked to the original post) and do not re-publish recipes or tutorials. Thank you.
