ABC or D which letter works for me?

I absolutely love the idea of incorporating letters from the alphabet into the home. Whether its your initials or the whole alphabet (as you'll see below), it is such a great way to personalize your home and add extra interest to your photo wall or empty wall space. Here are a few great examples that are sure to add loads of character in a variety of different fonts and sizes.

Yummy Drinks for Entertaining!

If you know me at all you know I'm not the best entertainer when it comes to serving food at my home.. ok I flat out suck at it. I LOVE to have people over but the stress of what to serve people petrifies me. Will I burn it? will half of it be cold? Will these people still be my friends after they leave? Way too stressful!!! so I kind of opt out and go the Trader Joe's route and throw pre-made stuff in the oven (I know.. I'm lame) BUT how great and easy are these drink ideas? maybe this is my first step in becoming a better "entertainer" at my home!!! I think I'll give it a go.

Showcasing the Kiddos

I LOVE when my kids come home from school or sunday school with crafts that they have done.. How could I ever throw any of it away? They put their little hearts into their scribbles and they always seems to know which stick man is who... What a cute way to showcase all their little artwork. They'll feel so pumped that mommy finds their work frameable and you'll get first dibs on some pretty spectacular work by the next "Picasso".
