    Whether it be used for homework or for coloring the next great masterpiece, every kid needs a spot where they can get creative! Of course the kitchen table will do in a pinch, but I've found that having a designated space available certainly helps foster a bit more focus, so why not have some fun with it?

    I've put together some rather delightful inspirations (like that spiffy little nook above, a renovated closet if I'm not mistaken). Click through to see 5 more below!

    The beauty of being away from my family for any amount of time is definitely the homecoming. I never feel as grateful for my daily routine than when I am removed from it for awhile. Each mundane task feels a little more special from the perspective of deep gratitude. Photographer and mom Karen Walrond’s photo series captures that homecoming magic beautifully -- that moment when every color feels more vibrant, each moment heightened, each connection more tender. It almost makes me want to leave just to come back home again.

    I don't know about you, but I am starting to get some serious spring fever. We may have several weeks of winter left, but that hasn't stopped me from scouting out ways to welcome the sunshine. Here are five easy things you can do to encourage an early spring at your house.

    Spring fever tip #1: Now is a lovely time to force some flowering bulbs like pristine paperwhites. These flowers bloom quickly and will last long enough to give you that extra boost until things start blossoming again outside. Buy a kit, or try this tutorial.

    It's shocking to me how ugly my house is.

    It shouldn't be, I mean, I work from home (I use the term "work" loosely here), which means I'm firmly ensconced in my fugly house most hours of the day. But somehow, I started accepting the fug as normal, and that's when the wheels came a-flyin' off the train.

    For years, YEARS, I've worked in an office (read: my dining room) that was painted such an atrocious shade of green that it made me actually angry to look at the walls. I hear green is supposed to be soothing, but let me tell you, this sort of "cat pee on plasterboard look" is what they probably paint prisons with if they want the inmates to start brawling. It's that bad.

    Or it was.

    This weekend, because I have a party in which people may actually show up and see the fug in person, I realized it was time for a change.

    And now.

Now talented artists and designers are creating calendars that are mini masterpieces worthy of framing. Here are six that I've been dazzled by this year starting with this colorful illustrated one from Erin Jang. I love how much character it adds to the wall.

    So enjoy a little breather and admire these beautiful built-in bookshelves I've rounded up for your viewing pleasure.
