My daughter definitely inherited my love for crafting. I mean, she has her own Pinterest account. At 7. So the more crafts we can do together, the better. Here are some super simple Halloween crafts that we did, that you can do with your kids too. (more…)
We’re not getting a kitten, I said. They’re too rambunctious and needy, I said. No way, I said.
Obviously we got a kitten. (more…)
Weathering our first hurricane in Florida was an emotional roller coaster to say the least. And I learned a lot. I learned about hurricane shutters, how to grab cases of water (fast). I learned that evacuating with tens of thousands of other people takes a lot of patience.. and lots of snacks.
And I learned that the compassion and caring of others is the bright spot in any storm.
Some good friends of ours became even better friends, by opening their homes and hearts to us. They gave us a place to lay our head, food in our bellies and smiles on our faces.
So now safely back home, I wanted to send them something to express how much their charity meant to us. (more…)
A photo wall is a huge hit at parties. People love taking pictures.. give them a pretty backdrop and some silly props and they’ll always remember it.

I have to admit I am a procrastinator, but and ambitious procrastinator. Case in point, I found this awesome table at a yard sale for just $10 and had grand plans for a DIY refurbish.

You know I love to make hair bows for my daughter. So I couldn’t let 4th of July go by without a patriotic hair accessory. And this ponytail holder is possibly the easiest thing in the world to make. (more…)
Get your crib (your house, not your baby’s crib) ready for 4th of July with this super simple paper chain craft.
I got the inspiration from something I saw at Michaels for $20! But $20 seemed a bit too steep for me so I made my own for free! (more…)
Get patriotic on a budget this 4th of July! I love making simple and cheap crafts with my kids to celebrate Independence Day. Check out our crafts and get free printables to make your own. (more…)
As school winds down so does the dance season. And I am so thrilled with my daughter’s dance teacher this year. She’s kind and caring, patient and fun.
It’s such a blessing when your kids get a teacher or instructor who doesn’t just teach them, but also connects with them and inspires them.
So I came up with a couple of ways to show dance teachers and our little dancers that we appreciate them. (more…)
