Quick and Easy Privacy Window DIY

Plaid Privacy Window-One Little Minute Blog-1 In our new house, the master bathroom has the most wonderful window that lets in natural light all day long. I love the brightness, and wanted to come up with a creative window covering that preserved the light while still offering some privacy.

I’ve hung curtains, been quoted for custom plantation shutters, and even considered learning to weld stained glass so I could make a cool, modern window insert. Then, a couple months ago at an antique fair, I spotted some really amazing antique etched glass windows where most of the window was opaque but still let in the light. I thought that would be a perfect solution, but wasn’t ready to commit to permanently etching my window, so I settled on beginning with a simple privacy window DIY using this inexpensive, everyday product.

Energy is Everything // Video Presentation

Energy is Everything Presentation-Miranda Anderson I had such an incredible experience speaking at Alt Summit a couple weeks ago. I thought about and worked on my presentation for weeks leading up to the conference, even telling myself on several occasions “You’re spending way to much energy on this thing!” Ha! I felt great about how it went, and asked my sister to sit on the front row and record it, so I could share it with more than the fifty people in the room. We sat down to watch as a family, and the boys thought it was super cool for about thirty seconds, then went on to play while Dave and I finished it out. The video presentation is now available to watch here on YouTube (also embedded below). It is about a half-hour long, so not a quick watch-in-line-at-the-grocery-store type of video. If you do watch it, I’d love to hear what you think!

I also want to share some of the resources that I’ve used to explore the ideas that I talk about in my Energy is Everything series. Read More »

Five Minute Focus for Happy House Cleaning

Five Minute Quick Clean-One Little Minute Blog-6

Growing up, having kids, and creating a home is such a different adventure than I expected. I’m truly enjoying the regular experiences I have that call into question all of my preconceived notions of what this would all be like! For example, I remember telling my older sister about how my kids would definitely eat carrot sticks as easily as fruit snacks if I offered them consistently…obviously that was before I actually had kids.

Easy DIY Dish Towel Aprons for Kids

This DIY Dish Towel Apron is a long time coming! I love to bake and cook with my kids. I joke that the first gift that I give my future daughter-in-laws will be a husband who can hold his own in the kitchen! Starting a couple years ago, I asked the boys to help me with some simple parts of baking, like pouring in the vanilla, or turning the mixer on to the right speed. They immediately noticed that I would always don an apron before beginning, and wanted one too. So, I would tie on a huge, adult-sized apron, fold it in half at their middle, and wrap the ties several times around their waists. Almost every time we do this I say to them “I need to make you some aprons in your own size!” And then we finish baking and I forget until the next time.
