BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! GRAND OPENING ELLABELLA DESIGNS SHOP & NAME CHANGE!

I am so excited to finally announce that I have opened the Ellabella Designs Shop on Etsy!

Ellabella Designs Etsy Shop

It has been my dream to open up Ellabella Designs again (you may remember when I had my scrapbooking studio way back in 2006-2010), but this time as a digital design studio where I love to create an abundance of digital art decor and printables for your home and life!

I have rounded up 12 gift ideas for my tween boy; I hope you can find some ideas for yours!

15 Gift Ideas for 13-year-old Teen Girls

It's always difficult to come up with gift ideas for my daughter, and this year is no different! I came up with 15 gift ideas for my 13-year-old teen girl, and I thought I'd share in case you are having difficulties as well!

She's certainly not into toys and isn't that much into the digital craze, though she has had an iPod for a number of years now. She is still into art in a big way, which I love! She goes through paint and canvases like you wouldn't believe!

What is on your teen's wishlist this year? I'd love to hear! Comment below!

12. Harry Potter - A History of Magic: The Book of the Exhibition she is still into Harry Potter and wanted these new books that just recently came out.

15. Acrylic Paint Set - she can never have enough paints!! Please be sure when purchasing acrylic paint that it is non-toxic, as some paints when mixed together can become toxic.

How I am Decluttering, Minimizing, and Organizing My Entire Life

It's been pretty quiet here on the blog-front lately as I have become obsessed with decluttering, minimizing, and organizing my life!

I am going to be honest here, I had been struggling with things for a while. I had a hard time keeping up with housekeeping as I knew we just had too much stuff; I was spending what little free time I had organizing our stuff and I found I became stressed and angry and was generally unhappy, but I just didn't know where to start!
