However, my parents are vacationing in Hawaii (lucky them) so I actually had no choice last night but to fix my toilet! It has been slowly leaking and refilling for a while but it did it so rarely I wasn't very worried about it. That is until the night before last when it started doing it every minute or so. It was driving me crazy (it's the bathroom in my bedroom) so I shut off the water supply to it and when I got a chance yesterday I replaced the flapper. Yup. It took about 2 seconds. I was pretty proud of myself. Especially since I think I'm certainly a fixer now :) I was going to take pictures, but I mean, who really wants to look at a toilet?!

Now tonight while he's sleeping, the leprechauns will come and leave their treasure in his treasure box. They also leave little green footprints where ever they walk, and unfortunately they drag toys out and don't put them up!!! (no pics of the mess yet incase he wakes up through the night UPDATE-- Pictures are below)

I made these cute little magnets last week. I saw them somewhere, but I honestly do not remember where. Here is how I did it.
I took a bag of these wooden nickles from Hobby Lobby:
Apply ModPodge. I used the Matte finish, but there are several options.

I made one for my cousin's birthday yesterday but I tweeked this one a little.
Here are the supplies you'll need if you want to make one: 2 coordinating matierials, some thin cardboard (like from a cereal box or frozen pizza), fusible fleece, and a file folder (for the little folders inside)
I cut the fabric the size of a normal printer paper- cut one of the main fabric, one of the lining and one of fusible fleece.
Then cut 4 triangles that will be used for the sides of the organizer.
Apply the fusible fleece to the wrong side of the main fabric.
Put the fabrics together to see where the velcro should go, and mark both sides.
Cut a piece of cardboard a little smaller than the paper since it will be inside the sewed pieces.
Sew the velcro on the main fabric and the lining material where you marked earlier.
Fold the top edge in and sew closed.
Turn right side out and fold the top in and sew closed
Placing the tip of the triangle in the corner of the bottom of the organizer, sew up the side (that is a little hard to explain but hopefully the photo helps)
Here is the finished side:
I made a template with printer paper for cards to put inside to organize the coupons then I traced them onto a file folder I had and cut them out (I only made 6 dividers since that was what fit onto the folder)
Here is the finished organizer!
With the dividers:
