My mom used shutters to hang family photos in our living room when I was growing up so I convinced her to "give" me one of them and I use

My mom had these cookie cutters when I was growing up. I still have a couple of them!

I used my mom's machine and embroidered a set of pillow cases to give Jamie for our 10 year anniversary. I chose to use a phrase we say to each other every night. I put them on the pillows and made up the bed. He was so surprised when he saw them and thought it was such a cute idea. We both love seeing these every night before bed. YAY!!!
chipped beef on toast my mom use to fix this when I was growing up. A very cheap and filling meal. :)

This makes me so nostelgic. I remember my Grandmother's kitchen looking so much like this when I was growing up. The kitchen table is very similar to the one she had.
Favourite Places and Spaces
Under bed boxes. I used to store my clothes, joint braces and stabilizers, slippers, shoes, you name it under my bed when my youngest and I lived in a one bedroom apt., and I slept in the living room sans dresser. I used laundry baskets, suitcases, wicker basketd (does not slide well on carpet, so better to use those beside your recliner or chair you use the most.
Give each student colored index cards/post-its for their work space. During independent work time or group work, the students use the cards. A teacher I used to work with put red cards on popsicle sticks at the student work centers & prompted them to hold it up when they needed help, rather than calling out. Her classroom was always so quiet!
Tapas... This is my kinda food!! This is what I miss about going to see my family when I was growing up!! Eating together as one big family for every meal ☺
My mom asked me for a “formal picture” of my one month old baby, I sent her this one I laughed so hard I cried at this one!
I Love....and then some
I would love to paint this on my living room wall or stair case & then hang family pictures on top of it...Family Tree
This is literally my nightmares coming to life. As a kid, when our house creaked, I was convinced that skeletons were coming to kill me. I was imaginative, okay?!

I believe in displaying family photos all over your home to help your children feel that they are growing up in a loving environment simply because they can actually SEE it all around them. In this post I also show you how easy it is to hang a wall gallery like this. #family #gallery #canvas #harvardhomemaker
When I was a kid my dad built shelves like this in our dining room. My mom and I would go thrifting to find the perfect knickknacks to go on them.
For The Home.
"I give them [Kendall and Kylie] a lot of stuff. Khloe and I used to live together for three years, and our garage was her closet. I had it made into a closet, the whole thing. So every time I'd leave the house, on my way out I would grab a bag. I'd steal everything of hers at the time. She had sweaters in her bedroom, so I'd always take her tops and sweaters. She's just always had the best stuff.”
Missing my mom more lately. She didn't have the things in the world to give me but she gave me all her Love, just hope one day my kids will appreciate me as much as I did my mom.
Pipe Cleaner Birthday Crown! This might be our family's new birthday tradition! My 2 yr old helped me make this 6 crown out of pipe cleaners to celebrate her baby sister's six month milestone. Basically free, since we had pipe cleaners on hand, and we can just unwind them when we're done with the hat. I used 4 pipe cleaners here. Two for the crown, one for the number, and another to attach the number to the crown.
Coloring pages for adults I love the pages from coloring pages for mom. I use them when my grand kids and nieces want to color with me.
Mystery Walker. This one has saved me so many headaches! Once we are all lined up and ready to leave the classroom, I choose a name from the bucket and put it in my pocket. This is our "mystery walker'. I keep my eyes on this child while we are walking in the hall. If this child has been on his/her best behavior, he/she gets to pick a prize from my treasure box when we get back to class.
these are the kinds of ornaments my sister and I used to make when we were growing up
Baked Pumpkin Donuts. My mom made these for me when I was home. I don't have a donut cutter, so I think I'm going to make them square and
Craft room humorThis is so me....:-)You mean I am not the only one who has this happen to them?When I start to "Clean up" I find all the stuff I have been hiding from hubby
OK so i showed my mom this and when i said i wanted to do this she flipped!! i love the idea this way the family and friends are one!!! Love the non traditional way!!
I wish I had something like this for my room when I was growing up. I love my sisters. They're my world.
HomemadeTortillas - when I was a kid, a friend's mom use to make these and she'd bring them to school on Thursdays. They are so good!
I think I might have to put this in my hallway with all the family photos..or the living room!!
Heart of the Home
Want this as my mother daughter tattoo I'm getting with my mom because me and my mother always say it! I think it would be extra special if we got it tattooed in our handwriting. So my handwriting on her & her handwriting on me!
