Tiny Home Tour - Handcrafted Movement


As a lifelong traveler, I'm committed to keeping a simple lifestyle, but that gets tricky when you live in a large space.

Here are 15 (no, wait, actually 16!) gorgeous, FREE printables I've rounded up:

And unfortunately no parades are planned, nor is the President (at least, the U.S. President) making a speech. But regardless, this chica will be celebrating her inner latina tonight with a special concoction.
