A fun gallery wall idea that disguises light switches, a bubble baby blanket diy and a helpful resource to keep your papers organized!

Light switches can present a challenge when it comes to decorating a wall — that’s why we love this gallery wall created by Jennifer of The Little Things. Using all white frames, she created a dynamic picture wall that practically makes the thermostat and light switch disappear!

We’ve seen lots of baby blanket diys over the years — but never one as unique as this one! New mom Skyler made this “bubble” blanket for her daughter Ada — and shared all the details on her blog Awaiting Ada.

Organizing papers is not something I’m got at. I have papers strewn about all over the house! Luckily, Steph of Modern Parents Messy Kids is sharing her top 15 resources for organizing your paper life. You’ve got to check it out! There are lots of useful links that you won’t want to miss!
