ON THE SET: SAVING MR. BANKS

On the Set: Saving Mr. Banks / 7thhouseontheleft.com

These days, it’s rare that a movie has you in a happy-go-lucky mood when you walk out of the movie theater. (And, if you’re like me, you’ll end up Googling for behind-the-scenes and making-of info as soon as you get home.) Saving Mr. Banks was that kind of movie for me. I laughed. I cried. I sang along. I “aww”ed and “oh no”ed. Simply put… it easily earned a spot in my list of favorite movies. As I’ve probably mentioned several times, I…

Happy Weekend

Happy Weekend: Peter Cottontail + Easter Eggs

I love this time of year because it’s not too hot or cold outside (perfect for grilling) and all of these bright and fun colors pop up in pretty much every store you go into. Since we’ve had so much snow this year and it’s actually started to warm up a bit, I feel like this Easter weekend is actually the “real” beginning of Spring. So, I’m welcoming Peter, Peter Cottontail that is, with open arms. While I so wish we were spending our…

So, this is totally one of those, “Hey, Mom! Look!” moments. When rolling around ideas on…

File Organization 101

Home File Organization 101 // 7thhouseontheleft.com

In honor of Tax Day, I’m going to delve into the most exciting thing ever… filing! I don’t know if you caught that, but that was supposed to come across as sarcastic. Though, I do actually think it’s kind of fun. I’m weird like that. My first “job” when I was about 14 was filing at my grandpa’s office. I say “job” because I’m pretty sure it only lasted a month or so and then I was off to summer…

Not Your Grandma’s Easter Eggs

Not Your Grandma's Easter Eggs // 7 Easter Egg Decorating Ideas // 7thhouseontheleft.com

Thanks to a quick Pinterest search, I have come to realize that anything and everything has been done to an Easter egg. They’ve been gilded, washi-taped, decoupaged, glittered, studded, chalk-boarded and even painted with nail polish. While I still have a major soft spot for the classic PAAS Coloring Kit (the smell of the dye still brings me back to my Grandma’s kitchen island), it’s official to say that we’ve gone way beyond the traditional dying technique from the days of yore…
