Zack's collections used to take up every square inch of flat surface in his room. He earned the nickname Magpie for a reason. 

But now, we've come to an agreement on how he will take care of his collections so I can still dust his room. Here's our solution: http://bit.ly/1I5qKUM

I have a recent obsession with beautiful heat embossing powders, but I thought I would never get to use them since I'm not a paper crafter. I looked to Google to point me into another direction besides paper, but that was a failure. I took that as a challenge.

Come on over to the blog to see how I figured out how to heat emboss on fabric. The results are fabulous! Click here: http://bit.ly/1Blw2HF

"Instead of trying to resurrect some of my admittedly ‘meh’ projects from this year to round out a top 10 list, I thought I would share with you some of my favorite projects from other bloggers. And since I am a HomeRight ambassador and LOVE all of their products, I’m doing a round up of my top 10 favorite projects from other bloggers who used HomeRight tools. That’s not a super catchy title, so I’m just calling it My Favorite HomeRight Projects of 2014."

Come check out these awesome projects, including this gorgeous embossed state art by +Kristin Cadwallader!  See them here: http://bit.ly/1xsVRIi

I made a DIY plaque for my office to celebrate a project that I never thought I'd finish. I love to recognize small, personal victories, and this is a great reminder to me that I can turn big ideas into reality. Come over to the #blog to see more! How do you celebrate yourself? http://bit.ly/13ZdfH5

I used my favorite +HomeRightTV  tool and made a big mess. But really, it's for a good cause that is near and dear to my own little peanut allergy-ed heart. http://makelyhome.com/teal-pumpkin-project/ #TealPumpkinProject

Are you a Mini Martha Stewart, a Mother of the Year or a Home Maintenance Diva?  Come take Makely's Fall Quiz to find out. #HealthierHome #ad
Can you believe that Fall has already arrived? It seems like just yesterday we were splashing around in the pool and eating popsicles in the back yard. Now, my days are filled with homework, football and slow cooker recipes. Even though you may be ready for Fall, your home may not be.
