A few cute door hanger's for Valentine's Day!


Ah the day that has been set aside for love is just around the corner! Are you ready? I have to admit that sometimes I don't want to even decorate for Valentine's Day. I mean it is just after the holidays and I feel like I am all decorated out. Plus my birthday is at the end of January and I don't like to have holiday decor out during my birthday. Sometimes it feels like my house is always decorated for something and it can feel overwhelming sometimes.

However alas, it is for a very special holiday after all. I think that celebrating your love for your special someone and your family and friends should get the most attention. Valentine's Day should be every day. We need so much love in this world full of hate and pain, and when you think of it that way then pulling out my love decor isn't that hard to do after all.

First of all I think that a beautiful front door is not only catchy for the eyes, but it is inviting and I don't know about you but I smile when I see cute doors all decorated for the holiday's.

Here are a few of my favorites.


I couldn't get a link for this one because it was sold on Etsy and is no longer there, but isn't this so cute! This would be so easy to make as well.




The cute lady who made this wreath Christine said, “I took a wire hanger and took it apart and shaped it into a heart, having the twisty ends meet at the center of the heart top. I then took strips of the Hello Luscious fabrics and tore and cut them into 7″ strips. I varied on the width of the strips from about an inch to a half inch. You don’t have to be too precise. Also some of the edges were cut with pinking shears and I loved the affect. Then you take your strips and just start tying them around the wire. I just went until I didn’t have any more room to put the fabric on. And you’re done! find a ribbon and tie it to the center of the heart and hang it on your door!”

This beautiful wreath might be a little bit harder to make for so, but it can be made and I think that the idea is so cute! I will be making one of these for sure.



This is a cute idea. I've made three felt heart wreaths like this before but I hang them separately instead of stacking them like these ones. I think that this is a cute idea. This is a easy project, but it does take time.



I love the look of these berry wreaths. The pink and white berries in this heart wreath mix well together and the fact that this is a heart grapevine wreath makes it even cuter! 





I love everything about this wreath. The grey and soft pink are my favorite. You could easily change the colors on this wreath to make a birthday wreath or even a cute 4th of July wreath with a flag instead of the white sprigs. 

There are so many cute ideas out there that I can't decide which one is my favorite.

Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful!


I think sometimes as women we get sucked into this black hole vortex of saying I’m sorry when we’re just living and trying to get through life with deadlines and homework and cars that won’t start and rainy weathers and missing shoes that were just in the shoe pile yesterday.
There is no need to say I’m sorry so many many times. We apologize for the messy hand prints on the walls and not realize that messy hand printed walls are often part of motherhood. We apologize when our kids are just kids forgetting that sometimes kids do really dumb things (isn’t that part of raising children?). We apologize for things that don’t even need apologizing for.

Organize Yourselves: Using D&C 88 to Start Your Year Off Right


Given in late 1832 and early 1833, the revelations comprising Doctrine and Covenants 88 were declared to be a message of peace to the Saints. Included was a commandment to build a temple in Kirtland; the verse is well-known among Latter-day Saints.
Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing; and establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God;
As a new year approaches, it common for people to be reflective and create goals to change. Making meaningful goals helps us become more like Jesus Christ. But how do we create goals to truly experience the change of heart that will help us change our lives? We’ve taken this verse and broken it down into some possible goals for a more fulfilling and Christ-like journey through another twelve months.
