Summer Adventures – Host the Ultimate Water War

Summer Adventures: Host a Water War in your own backyard with these fun and simple tips... like don't forget the sunscreen!

Every so often in the summer, we have a day where I really don’t want to leave the comfort of my air conditioned house.  A trip to the beach, or even the park, is just not happening on these kinds of days.  (Please jump in at any time and let me know I’m not alone here!) However, my desire to stay inside doesn’t seem to temper the childrens desire for adventure, and if anything, only seems to spark it more. {Read More}

Summer Adventures – Our Ready for the Beach Box

Be ready for any summer sun adventure, especially a beachy one, with this prepacked Beach Day box - it will make prepping to go to the beach a breeze!  Just add sunscreen and you're out the door!

Although many of you have been out of school for weeks, our kids just finished school this past Thursday, which means summer is now full speed ahead. We still have soccer two nights a week for both girls and wrestling one night a week for Cecelia, so we like to play it low key and spontaneous during the day – which often means last minute trips to the beach. One of the things I hated was packing the beach bag {Read More}

Cheetah Printed Frozen Party for a Fifth Birthday

An Elsa / Cheetah Mash-Up Party at!

After Christmas, I usually start thinking about my daughters birthdays and planning out their theme.  This allows me to spread out the cost, and also have time to buy things at the best price.  I hardly ever spend over $100 by doing it this way.  However, this year, my oldest told me she didn’t want a birthday party, she just wanted to go to the movies with a few friends. And my youngest?  Well… my youngest decided to challenge my {Read More}

Ikea Rast Hack for a Kids Room

This Ikea Rast hack is perfect for a kids bedside table - a cute design with some extra storage!

I’m pretty sure that the Ikea Rast has to be the most made over piece of furniture in the history of time. A simple pinterest search of “Ikea Rast Hack” will prove my point!  There have been some amazing designs created with this humble $40, 3 drawer chest, and I knew it would be perfect for my daughter’s bedside table.  She doesn’t have much space in her room, but she needed a little bit more clothing storage.  Another dresser was {Read More}

Kids Room Wall Art using Cork and Chipboard Stickers

This adorable kids room wall art was created using an old frame, cork roll, and chipboard scrapbooking stickers!

When I came across a sheet of chipboard stickers from My Mind’s Eye on clearance that were the exact same colors as the quilt I made my daughter, I knew I had to grab them.  I wasn’t sure what I would do with them, but I knew they had to end up in her room somehow.  That’s where this simple project came from, and the best part is I had everything else I needed on hand, so the total cost was $2! {Read More}

Frozen Easter Baskets – Tutu Style!

Surprise your little Elsa fan this Easter with the fabulous and fancy Frozen Easter Basket!

So even though Spring has apparently abandoned us, Easter is apparently still coming – snow or not.  And since we have to face the likely fact that there will still be snow on the ground two weeks from now, I figured why not go with – hence this Frozen Easter Basket, perfect for all of the little Elsa fans in your house. Can we just do a check – is Frozen still huge in your house?  Because it sure is {Read More}

How to Easily Paint Pillows

How to Easily Paint Pillows with fabric paint and a stencil!

As I mentioned yesterday in the Monday Funday post, I think Spring has forgotten all about us this year.  Not only has it been a miserably long and terribly cold winter, but Spring is just nowhere in sight. Sure, she peeks out just long enough to taunt us, but then runs away and leaves us with more snow and forecasted temperatures of -27. Wherever Spring is, she isn’t here, and she is certainly ticking me off. Which made me all {Read More}
