21 Things You Can Do At Home

I wanted to start the weekend with something positive and helpful. Since I am such a homebody and always coming up with ways to spend time at home, I wanted to share some things that you can do at home as well as a few links.

Create a photo book online

Every year I make a photo book of images from that year. It is such a nice way to reflect on the highlights of the year. I love Mixbook and have used them for 6 years now!

Plan a room refresh

My favourite way to do this is in PowerPoint or Google Slides. Make a text box that is the colour of your walls and make it fill the entire slide. Take photos of items you already have and want to reuse and use the background removing tool (only on PowerPoint) to seamless add it to your "room." Online shop for items and pull them into the slides and remove the background. Slowly build a little "room" and you can easily see what works in the space and what doesn't! I always always do this when planning a space.

Have a movie night

Check out what is trending on Netflix, Prime, Disney+ and watch something new!

Binge a TV series
