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.
And guess what I did this weekend, NINE MONTHS after I found it?! Hey, better late than never, right? (more…)
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.

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.

I love Valentine’s Day. I’m a girly girl at heart and so is my daughter. We love all things pink and glittery, so it’s a perfect holiday for us.
