DIY Pallet Sign

My husband brought home some wood this past summer from a coworker’s old fence, and its been sitting in our room collecting dust. I saw the pallet signs back on Pinterest a while ago and thought what a fun and cheap craft. I love the level of customization that comes with DIY projects like these. You can literally do anything to the wood, and you’re left with a beautiful piece to accent your home. Getting into the Spring season, I rediscovered the planks of wood and decided to take on the project.

Simple Spring Decor

Spring is finally here! It’s time to kick the winter blues, and there is no better way than decorating for the season!

But where do you start? When I was little and it was time to decorate for the seasons, we went into the storage closet and took out the cardboard box that had ” Spring” written on it in black magic marker.

The craft store seemed like a logical place to start. Luckily, we arrived just as the store was stocking for summer decor, so all the remaining spring items were marked at an insane deal of 60% off. That, plus a trip to the local dollar store, found us with everything we needed to make these simple but eye-catching decorations.

7 Things They Don’t Teach You in School

Test tomorrow on the first fifty elements on the Periodic Table! When am I ever going to need this anyways? That dreaded question that plagues teachers ears on a daily basis. The students do have a point, and I can absolutely attest that that question ran through my mind constantly back in my school years. Growing up as millennials, we’re being shoved into the real world with no common knowledge of how anything works other than how to calculate the angles of a triangle or who won The Hundred Years War (which surprisingly wasn’t 100 years). Here are a few of the things that I would have found helpful when taking the plunge into the big, scary, real world.

How to Have the Perfect Date Night on a Budget

Here are a few cheap date ideas where you can take the focus off of Instagram, and put it into your loved one.
