Since I have 3 kids now, lately I've been trying to be overly organized and prepared.  Thinking + prepping ahead of time is my M.O.  With back to school around the corner, Lowe's put the Creative Team to the … [Read more...]

I'm a big believer … [Read more...]

I'm Carrie from Making Lemonade and I have a confession: I'll admit there was a time when I wished my entire home was decorated like the contents of a Crate & Barrel catalog.
