Happy Birthday Sergio!!

My awesome boyfriend turns 29 today! Happy Birthday Sergio!
Since he wasn't too thrilled about turning 29, I decided to make him a funny card...
Along with a new watch for his collection:
Happy birthday my love! I wish you nothing but happiness and laughs all year. I can't wait to celebrate more birthdays with you! <3

Dreaming of Organized Pantries...

When I was younger, I used to say that my dream house had a circular driveway with a fountain in the middle. Although, it would be nice (I don't like backing out of driveways, lol), I have changed my home desires for more practical and realistic things: a pantry and a mudroom.

Ever since I've become a homeowner, I've become obsessed with pantries and mudrooms. Maybe it's because these are ideally organized and often use labeled bins? Whatever it is, I NEED a pantry and a mudroom at our next house.

Can you imagine how much fun it would be to put one of these together?
Serg would never have to ask me where anything was ever again! (Ok, maybe that's completely unrealistic...)

Since we do not have a pantry yet, I decided to at least organize with the space we have... I had been keeping our flour, sugar, etc. in plastic ziploc bags and that really wasn't cutting it. So I made a little stop at IKEA yesterday and picked up a couple of these jars.






With a little help of Sure Cuts A Lot, my Cricut, and some black vinyl, I was able to whip these up for an open shelf in our kitchen.
 Not quite a pantry... but it'll do... for now.
