Modge Podge Photo Transfer {Vintage Sign}

I am so excited to share this new product to you today. I recently had the opportunity to try the new
Modge Podge Photo transfer.  After watching a video on the product, I was instantly in love. This stuff can turn any fabric, metal, glass or wood into a craft dream,  transfer any photo copied picture into a beautiful art piece.  After debating ideas in my head I decided on a sign.  I needed a great photo and spot to place it.  It's a good thing I have bloggy friends who love creative things in their homes.  Andie from MaybeIwill.com had the perfect spot for me.  Her little boys room was in need of a funky Vintage piece of art.  Here is what I came up with.

Command Center {Chore Cards}

While building my command center I thought "What is a command center with out chore cards for the kiddos?"  They were very simple to make and my kids like to use them.  It takes the guess work out of what is expected when doing chores.

5 week meal rotation calendar

Ever ask yourself what should I make for dinner??? I do, and it galls me. To understand my frustration let me start by admitting I am not a Type A personality. My craft room has half-finished projects scattered all over it, my house is not spotless or ordered, my children don’t do their chores or homework without constant prodding, and my husband sometimes comes home to a pile of unfolded laundry on the bed and front room full of toys.

I am, paradoxically, a prepper. Emergency preparedness and food storage are right in my wheel house. I get a great deal of satisfaction in seeing my storage shelves fill with food and having enough water to fill a small pool should the need arise.

Because of my love of preparedness and my complete disdain for coming up with a daily menu, I developed what I have named my 5 Week Meal Rotation and made it part of my Command Center {here}.

Command Center {My Style}

After a few crazy  unorganized months (not all bloggers are super organized), I decided it was time to jump on the command center bandwagon.  My schedule seems to have spun out of control. Sick kids, Holidays, sports and school activities.  So many things a mom must do to keep a happy family.  I have an amazing mudroom in my home.  iron board, floor to ceiling lockers for the kids, wash basin and 1/2 bath. I didn't have a lot of wall space to work with and there are so many cool command centers out there.  This one seems to work best for me.

Breakfast Smoothie

The past few weeks I have been participating in a Get Healthy 8 week challenge. I have teamed up with 15 other ladies. We have pledged to get healthy.  For more information to start your own group click here.
In starting the challenge I was worried about meeting all the requirements.  My number one worry was consuming enough fruits and vegetables.  I have terrible allergies to raw fruits and vegetables.  This makes meeting the requirements difficult.  So today I am sharing one way to get a serving of fruits and veggies in before lunch time.

Mini Anthropologie knock off skirt

 Anthropologie had this beautiful lace skirt at Christmas time.  But not in my budget and they didn't make them for little girls. I though my little miss needed one too.

Skirt Extender DIY

I love skirts. But as I get older it seems that skirts are getting shorter or I am getting taller.  I have a general rule that my skirts go to the knee.  Skirts that length that are modest can be hard to find. So when I saw a modest slip extender at a local boutique I just had to have one.  But at $30 a piece I decide I would have to wait.  So I went to my local Joanns.  They had a great selection of Lycra stretch fabric in lots of colors.  Here is what I bought:
