Operation Boy's Bedroom Makeover

Monday, April 23, 2012
Here I was thinking that April would be one of my "slower" months ... yeah right! After starting to sell Stella & Dot [which is going fabulous by the way] I am constantly staying busy by creating, creating, creating. The Bridal Solution has a new deign element now, where we are able to take brides idea and conform them into one unified look. This with new tool, we are also designing a lot of programs, menus, invitations, etc. Which is great, dont' get me wrong, but my free time is coming to an all time low.

Bayler is fast approaching 3 and growing like a weed. It was just last year [this week] that Bayler received his new "toddler" bed. I remember how excited I was to put the bed in his own room and watch as he became SO attached to it. Still to this day, his bed is his own space, and no one else is allowed on it. SO cute! Now that he is growing length wise, I decided it was time for a bedroom makeover. Since both boys sleep in the same room, we needed to upgrade to accommodate their needs. Braeden was sleeping in in a full bed and Bayler was in a toddler bed in the same room. I made an executive decision today that both boys were getting new matching twin beds... and soon, operation boys makeover bedroom began.

Since I am majorly TYPE A, I had to do a mock bedroom to make sure the ideas in my head would actually look good. So here is what I came up with. This week I'll give you little sneak peeks of the progress. My hope and goal is to have everything finished by this coming weekend!

What do you think of my faux bedroom? Thoughts?


Easter Tablescape 2012

Thursday, April 19, 2012
I absolutely love my job, especially around the holidays, because I am able to put together tablescapes at home after I put them on for clients! Check out the Imhoff Easter Brunch Table ... it was so much fun!

Mrs. Meyer's Room Fresheners

Monday, April 9, 2012
People ask me all the time how I get my home smelling so great. It's true, and I never thought it was that big of a deal. But I am learning quickly that if you are going to have a clean house, it needs to smell clean too!

It wasn't until the pizza delivery guy asked me what I used that I thought I would blog about it... because well, if the pizza guy thinks your home smells good ... you may want to share the secret!

My secret is simple, Mrs. Meyer's Room Fresheners. I was able to buy them around town in Walmart, TJ Maxx or HyVee but lately I haven't been able to find them. I love them so much that I placed a bulk order online and had them shipped. For the price of a small candle [$4.99] you can't go wrong!

You can use them the traditional way, or you can use them in a room air freshener system because they are pretty pure. I use the room fresheners in the Rainbow Rain Maker ... and it fills the room with the best smell. I use Lemon scent in my kitchen and bathrooms, Gardenia in the family room and living areas, and lavender in the bedrooms. Ahhh ...

Also, here's a little secret. If you are getting ready to have company over after work and you don't have time to run home and clean clean clean, just spray a bit of the lemon scent in the room and bathroom and it will smell like you have been cleaning ALL DAY LONG!

So there it is ... my "cleaning" tip for the week!
