Easy DIY Reading Nook for any corner of your home| #HomeDecor #Reading @KESSInHouse

My idea of a perfect reading nook revolves around comfort. I wanted big pillows, soft blankets, and of course, really good books. I don't exactly have a location in my home that's free. So I decided to build my reading nook in a corner of a bed and a wall in our guest room. It's in a location that doesn't have much traffic, but can be removed quickly when we need the space.

FREE DIY Voltron Cootie Catcher Printable #Voltron #DreamWorks

I had the honor of attending the DreamWorks Voltron press event a few weeks ago and the event was incredible. I think that kids all over are going to go crazy about this show. One of the most fun things about Voltron Legendary Defender is getting to know each of the characters. Who do you relate to? Which color would you be? What personality traits do you have? I've created an old school cootie catcher that you can introduce to your children. Let's drop the technology for a little bit and have some fun with the easiest form of origami.

Craft Corner Vol. 1: DIY BFG Dream Jars Tutorial – colorful and whimsical #TheBFG #DIY

So, when I pictured the Big Friendly Giant hunting for dreams and stuffing them into bottles, I actually imagined the bottles as jars. At first, I pictured fireflies in jars with their beautiful green glow. Then, as the story progressed and the description deepened, a clearer picture appeared in my mind. I imagined jars that were full of pretty colors and lots of shimmer. If my favorite dreams were put into a jar, I'm sure that they'd be just as bright and colorful! That's when the idea of these jars developed!

DIY wind chime inspired by Nicholas Sparks’ The Choice #TheChoice #DIY

Have you watched The Choice? It's one of the most romantic movies that I've watched in quite awhile. It's no surprise, though. I mean, it was written by Nicholas Sparks, the biggest hopeless romantic in the world. The movie takes place in the country, by a big beautiful lake. The homes in the movie have a very country feel to them. You'll notice a beautiful wind chime in the movie. It's made of sea shells and compliments the home well. As inspired by the film, I have a super fun wind chime tutorial for you. This one is made with sea glass, as you may have seen Travis fiddling with at some point in the film. I hope that you enjoy making your windchime just as much as I did.

Be Our Guest DIY WiFi sign & Teaser Trailer: Beauty and The Beast – Live Action! #BeOurGuest #DIY

I made a sign for my guests to log into my WiFi with a simple scan of the customized QR Code. Since I’m a huge Disney lover I had to incorporate Disney into the room somehow. My all-time favorite Disney movie is Beauty and the Beast, so I thought “Be Our Guest” would be perfect for the guest room and an awesome way to celebrate the live-action rendition of the movie coming in 2017.

Add some DIY Bohemian Flare to your home! #Bohemian #Boho

I've decided to completely redo my guest room. I want our guests to feel comfortable and excited when they stay at our house. I also want the experience to be memorable. If they don't walk away thinking, "Wow! That room was like no other," then we aren't doing something right. I've always loved bright colors, but I've always settled for neutrals in my home. With my guest room, I decided to experiment with colors and I love how it turned out. Hopefully, I can give you some ideas!

Our Idea of a Lazy Date at Home

How We Do A Lazy Date At Home – Without Spending a Ton of Money

Let me set the scene. It's date night. Every week or month you have a specific night dedicated to keeping the romance alive with your partner/spouse. Most of you would look at me funny if I said that you should go on a weekly date with your significant other. You would say that you can't afford it. You would say that you don't have time. You have to pay for dinner and the activity. You have to pay for gas and a babysitter. That's if you can find one. The expenses rack up and sometimes, while important, the idea of a date night just seems out farfetched. There are ways to have cute lazy dates in your home without spending a ton of money. Now does that sound like something that's within your reach?

5 Quirky Ways To Fight Work Desk Boredom

Tracking PixelThere's definitely a stigma of desk jobs being incredibly boring. This isn't always true. It really depends on the work you do. I worked at a hotel for many years and most of my hours were spent sitting at the front desk waiting... and waiting... and waiting. My job was to wait for someone to arrive or wait for someone to call. Since we had to remain at the desk at all times, my options were limited with what I could do to fight the boredom. I had to think of unique and creative ways that weren't against the rules. Now, I am working at a desk again. I love my job, but it still gets really boring sometimes.

This snack stadium will be really unique because it's going to include sweet and salty snacks.
