I uploaded their picture to Walgreen's and had three 8 x 10 copies printed for about $3 each.
found 8x10 frames at Walmart for $4 and sprayed painted them glossy red.
Easy and really cute.

Power Of Moms

I tweak a lot of things around here. Furniture, walls, lights etc. If it's not bolted down it's not safe from my crazy addiction for change. You know what else needed tweaking?! My brain!! With four kids (ages 7,5,3,1) things tend to get pretty hectic/chaotic/completely out of control around here.
This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend a "Mother's retreat" with my mom and sisters. It was a much needed break from the everyday norm and I returned home motivated to implement everything I learned to have a more organized, peaceful, systematic home.
If you get the chance, you should register for the May retreat. You'll learn so much and your family relationships will be better for having gone.

LOVE/HATE...But mostly Love

They had all their indoor plants 50% OFF. I got this one for $6.50
and this sweet turquoise/teal pot for only $10
It just happens to match my new rug perfectly.
Plus, I grabbed a little 2 oz bottle of 'tester paint' while I was there
and it happens to be the exact color as the teal in the rug as well...
I'm thinking the piano is going to end up 
"Totally Teal"
