Everyday Stainless Steel Cleaning Tips #MeisterCleaners

This post brought to you by Meister Cleaners. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Sew Woodsy. If there is one thing I hate to do it's cleaning. I dread it like the plague.

While I was pregnant we hired a cleaning service to clean our home once a month. It was a glorious thing! I knew after I gave birth we would not be able to afford the … [Read more...]

IKEA Soft Toys for Education

Soft Toy IMage 2015_4

Being a first-generation college graduate and a new mom, education is a big priority to me (and Jon too). Every week, I take Ryder to a music class.
