Tuesday Time to Tackle: Laundry Room Decor

I value function.  If a room works, I'm happy.  The laundry room in my house is a good-sized room.  When we remodeled our kitchen, we saved the old cabinets.  Some of these sit in our laundry room now, and provide a counter on which to fold clothes.  Still, after years of staring at a blank wall, I thought, "Why can't this room be cute as well as functional?"  




I looked around my house, gathered up items that weren't currently being used, and gave them a home in my laundry room.  I used fabric I had on hand to make a skirt for the sink, and curtains for the window and the shelf.  I did buy a clock at the thrift store, velcro to attach the skirt and one of the curtains, and a tension rod for the window. 

My laundry room now makes me smile. 




I love the fact that such a big impact could occur with minimal cost, time, and effort.  

What little changes have made big impacts in  your home?

Thanks for form and function.

  5. The room looks great! And to think, you had all of that around the house already. Unfortunately, it would take a lot more than that to make my dungeon/laundry room pleasant to be in.

  7. Great going! You should have it looking nice since you're in there often enough. I wish I could say the same but ours is just a corner in the unfinished basement. I do have a window though and that's nice.

It's #RootsTech Giveaway Time!

In February of 2018, not knowing exactly what to expect, I attended RootsTech for the first time. What I learned is that RootsTech has something for everyone, from the most beginner of beginners to professional DNA genealogists. If you are interested in your own family story, come to RootsTech! RootsTech offers over 300 classes, amazing keynote speakers, an Expo Hall packed with all sorts of vendors, and evening cultural events. 

After an enjoyable experience in 2018, I returned in 2019, and even got my husband, John, to come one of the days to hear Saroo Brierley give a keynote address. 

Speaking of keynote addresses, this week RootsTech just announced that one of the speakers for 2020 will be David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer. I can't wait to hear his story!

RootsTech 2020 will celebrate its 10th anniversary, and is bound to be the best one yet! I have been delighted to be accepted as an official RootsTech ambassador. One of the perks is that I received a c…

Ten Things of Thankful: Nearly Christmas Edition

This is a busy time of year, and though it isn't as busy for me as it has been in past years, my to-do list still seems longer than the hours in the days. However, I find that when I spend time to focus on the reason for the season, I can feel the joy of Christmas and the tasks-at-hand fall back into their proper place. This week I had the opportunity to attend some wonderful events, and I'd love to take you along for a virtual tour:

Let's start at the Conference Center on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, last Friday night. The Tabernacle Choir joined with the Orchestra at Temple Square and the Bells on Temple Square, along with dancers and guest artists Kelli O'Hara and Richard Thomas, to present a spectacular Christmas concert. Although I couldn't record any of the performance, the following 2-minute video from the church provides an overview:




The last time John and I had attended a Christmas concert by the Tabernacle Choir, they were still holding those conc…

Ten Things of Thankful: Dad's Influence Edition

Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement. 
I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me.
My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis.
When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a parent of one of my dad's students. 
Hello, Mrs. _______. How can I help you? . . . (an irate woman's voice is h…
