Happy Easter

 

This is my favorite day of the year!

I hope that you spend the day cherishing the many blessings in your life, both large and small.

Beneath the cross of Jesus I fain would take my stand,
The shadow of a mighty rock within a weary land;
A home within the wilderness, a rest upon the way,
From the burning of the noontide heat, and the burden of the day.

Upon that cross of Jesus mine eye at times can see
The very dying form of One Who suffered there for me;
And from my stricken heart with tears two wonders I confess;
The wonders of redeeming love and my unworthiness.

I take, O cross, thy shadow for my abiding place;
I ask no other sunshine than the sunshine of His face;
Content to let the world go by to know no gain or loss,
My sinful self my only shame, my glory all the cross.

Beneath the Cross of Jesus by Elizabeth Clephane

becoming

Have you registered for Becoming Conference yet?  Well, if not then time is running out!!  This is my favorite weekend of the year with some of my favorite bloggers all teaching sessions on crafting, DIY, cooking and more!

This is a conference that I co-host every year with Jen from Balancing Beauty & Bedlam.  We invite some of the top DIY Decor, Food, and Lifestlye bloggers to come and give you hands on tips and encouragement.  You can learn everything from refinishing furniture to cake decorating, photography, budgeting, couponing, to being more purposeful in your parenting or marriage.

You get to pick what sessions you want to attend, so you can hear a little bit of everything or just be one amazing painter!

Becoming is August 8th & 9th this year.

One of the best things is that you can spend a weekend away at a conference including food for only $100 if you share a room!

coupon workshops

There are a ton of upcoming couponing workshops in NC, SC and GA.   If you are wanting to learn more about couponing, then get registered and join me when I’m in your area.  Workshops are 2.5 hours long (unless I get a little carried away…) and we cover everything from saving on meat and produce to getting deals at the drugstore. I also go in depth on all the new eCoupons and mobile apps that are out there and how to keep your coupons organized.

A few of these classes are super special and very small. Blue Cross Blue Shield of SC is sponsoring 3 workshops that will only hold 40 people, but all the spots are FREE. It’s pretty rare that a workshop is free, so if you are in one of these cities I would grab a spot before they are full.

These other workshops aren’t free, but they are only $10 per person/couple. I can pretty much guarantee you’ll save that on your first trip to the store after the class! Keep in mind for some cities I don’t make it back for a long time…

A look alike for Restoration Hardware's linen curtains at a fraction of the price.

Have you been doing any spring cleaning and decorating?  Linen curtains are a great window treatment option for filtered light.

Frugal:

Home Decorators:  Luxe Linen Curtain Panel ($62 ea. shipped)

This curtain doesn’t have the rings like the Restoration Hardware ones, but you could easily buy the rings and attach them cheaply.

Expensive:

Restoration Hardware:  Belgian Opaque Linen Drapery ($176 ea. shipped)

There are definitely a lot more color choices at Restoration Hardware, but I simply don’t see the need to spend so much more for a simple curtain.
