Easily Create A Custom Canvas Print with Canvas Champ | #Giveaway

Something that makes a house more like a home for me is wall decor. If you walk through my house, you will see that. I have family photos and canvas prints throughout my home, and also some pretty amazing geek decor in my office. When I was offered a custom Canvas Champ canvas print to write about, I just knew I was going to have it made of the Avengers: Infinity War poster. Not only am I a huge Marvel fan – the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) means a lot to me. I have been invested in this universe for nearly my entire life between the comics and the movies.

DIY Archery Target To Help You Shoot Arrows Like Hawkeye! | #InfinityWar #Archery #DIY

We may not be seeing much of Hawkeye lately, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a major part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In fact, not seeing him in the Avengers: Infinity War trailers and posters could mean he is more important than we could even imagine. I have my own theories for him, and in less than two weeks we will know for sure. Sometimes I channel Hawkeye because I love archery. Where I live, there are not many places to shoot around, so I created my own target out of a few things I found in the basement. It was really easy, and did not take long at all.

DIY: Four Easy Steps To Create Your Own Coffee Bar! | #Coffee #DIY

Just the other day my husband and I purchased a new coffee pot. Ours was getting old and we had read about one that featured a burr grinder so we decided to upgrade. When we got it home, it was just a tad too tall for our counter. At first, we were totally bummed, but then, we thought a coffee bar might work well in our kitchen. We started pricing them out and – long story short – we ended up building one. In about 24 hours. And it came out amazing. Surprisingly, it was a lot easier than we expected it to be. Here is how you can create your very own coffee bar – in just 4 easy steps!

Why My Mother/Daughter Bond Is So Strong With Both My Girls

There is no bond quite like the one between mother and child. The moment I birthed my children, I knew that. But did I know that the whole time I was pregnant? Nope. I was terrified – I mean, TERRIFIED – that I would not love my children the way so many mothers do. I was afraid that I would not know how to take care of them, and I was afraid that I would be a bad mom.

5 Tips To Get Back On Track When You Are Feeling Overwhelmed

Let me start this off by saying this post is not sponsored in any way. Recently I have been feeling extremely overwhelmed. A variety things have been happening in my life which have put a lot on my plate at once. It got to the point where I was so stressed out about my to-do list that I didn’t even know where to start.
