Thanks for visiting my blog! I'm Nicki, a mom to 2 little boys, the surviving wife of an Army Captain, a sometimes DIY-er, a decorator of all holidays, a crafter, and a pinner of many. Above all though, I'm a completley obsessive, over-achieving mom who needs to be in control of just about everything.

Lazy way to iron a hem, cuff, collar, or pillowcase!
If you're anything like me, you dread pulling out the iron and ironing board, finding a place close enough to the outlet to set it up, making sure no kid pulls on the cord, ironing, making sure it's turned off, waiting for it to cool down, then struggling with that little lever thing to shut the darn thing up. I live by the phrase "Work smarter, not harder" so I've come up with another solution to quick little ironing jobs like the hem of your pants, cuffs, collars, or the folds in the pillowcase hem (how do those even get there in the first place?). A straightening iron! Heats up quickly and works perfectly!
