Hey Mom Endeavor readers! I’m Samantha and I blog over at Lillian McKay Designs and A Little Simplicity. I am excited to be here while Sara is adjusting to life with two little boys & a new baby. {Aren’t they just super adorable?!}

Plus maybe that savings will help you buy that cute new rug you’ve been eying. With our recent move across country I’ve been doing just that, upcycling “old” items into cute “new” pieces for our walls. Here are three of my favorite projects so far…
