• Project: CMYK Inspired Baby Shower, part 1 {Make it Monday: Crepe Paper Chandeliers, decorations, and tissue paper pom poms!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 3- just time-consuming, but had a lot of help!
• Time: 1 day to do prepare for the whole party- includes the other parts of the shower
• Would I do it again? Well of course! This shower was for my sister Megan who is expecting in September. So grateful to be able to help celebrate in Canada with her!
• What I would do differently: nothing! Meg wanted a CMYK inspired shower which is basically, according to Wikipedia: “CMYK refers to the four inks used in some color printing: cyan, magenta, yellow, and key (black).”

• Project: Tidy it Thursday: My new Weekly & Monthly Cleaning Schedules with Free Printables!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1 for making the cleaning schedules, and 4 to keep up with it on a weekly and monthly basis!
• Time: 10 minutes to customize the cleaning schedules and a lot more time to complete them 😉
• Would I do it again? yes! I really need schedules…for some reason I like to know I completed what I had set out for that day, even something as simple as cleaning! For me, it works a lot better to do a daily chore/task each day versus one day committed to cleaning the whole house. I’d rather have my Saturday and Sunday to play and do fun things with my girls!
• What I would do differently: nothing except I should have done this cute schedule sooner!
• Items used: Adorably cute printables from: Money Saving Mom and Blooming Homestead
