Create the perfect tidy and organized bedroom in #DIYTheRoom with Jen.
My daughter recently turned 12 and we have two challenges related to her bedroom: keeping things tidy and organized, and transitioning it from looking like a young kid's room to a preteen's room. I found some amazing, inspiring ideas on Cut Out + Keep that I gathered into a list. Some are a snap to do, and others take a bit more time and skill. I hope this collection helps give you some ideas if you too are looking to update and tidy a preteen girl's room.
Create a sports themed birthday party in #DIYTheParty with Super Madcow.
My sons birthday is coming up this month & he is mad about sports, particularly football, so I have chosen the items on the party list to reflect the things he would like. The items on the list can obviously be changed to suit a theme but the basic idea & instructions are there. I've tried to think of everything from the card & gift wrap, to the food & drinks he would like. I've also looked at the decorations for the room & tables. I was also thinking of a cake for the big day & I chose the football boot cake as it is fun & easy to make & doesn't cost too much in time or money. The only thing missing is the gift. I'm keeping that a secret until the big day.

Create a pirate party in #DIYTheParty with Mistress Nora of Madness.
Pirates had been in story books from my childhood but when Pirates of the Caribbean series came out the Boom from the cannons could be heard around the world. Pirates were everywhere. Halloween and Renaissance fairs were full of them but Now you can go to Bars or just walk downtown and see people enjoying this look. I think a Party based on Pirates should be on every "Speak like a Pirate Day" September 19th. What could be more fun than having Drinks with the skulls of your enemies laying around.
The best thing about Chester besides the history and the shops is that there is always something to do.
