DIY Gift Giving Idea – Instagram Scrapbook Kit

Create this Custom Instagram Scrapbook Kit for your crafty tween or teen this Christmas and watch their creativity bloom!

I love buying gifts that people (especially kids) can DO. Something creative, something intellectual – something that engages their brain and develops a skill and a hobby.  That’s why I love buying my daughter crafty things for Christmas – she also loves it!  This year, I decided to put together my own craft kit – a custom made Instagram Scrapbook Kit. Inside this box lies all of the goodies she could want to create her own scrapbook – and I {Read More}

25 Awesome Handmade Gifts for Kids on Etsy

25 Awesome Handmade Gifts to buy your kids this Christmas on Etsy!

If you aren’t familiar with Etsy, it is a handmade and vintage marketplace that connects buyers and sellers all across the world (or at least it was, until mass produced chinese imports started sneaking in somehow – so read the listings before you buy to make sure you are getting what you hope for.)  I have bought my kids hair bows, fabric for a quilt, and even my wedding veil on Etsy.  It’s amazing – and here are my favorites {Read More}

Chicken Fajita Bowls + 50 Easy Weeknight Meals

Chicken Fajita Bowls + 50 easy weeknight meals!

I am so excited for today’s post – it’s a post that has been in the work for almost two months now, pretty much ever since my kiddo’s went back to school.  I was sitting at the table, searching Pinterest for easy weeknight meals, like I seemed to constantly be doing.  Now that school was back in session, and I was back to work (I’m a teacher), I didn’t have time to be in the kitchen for hours, or even {Read More}

Sweet Dreams Vinyl Silhouette Lampshade

Pretty up a lampshade with this vinyl decal lampshade hack! A five minute fix that uses leftover vinyl scraps!

My daughter’s room used to be deep purple and hot pink, which as a five year old, she adored!  Now as a nine year old, we are in process of purging anything pink and redoing her room in shade of purple, orange, and mint green.  (We absolutely fell in love with this Moxie fabric line by Erin McMorris and we ran with it as our inspiration! Isn’t it perfect for a tween girls bedroom?) During this process, we had to {Read More}

I created these printables to decorate the craft space, and decided to share them with you {Read More}

Felt Owl DIY Halloween Treat Bucket

Make this fun and cute owl DIY Halloween Treat Bucket for your little trick or treaters out of a coffee can and felt! Free printable template included!

I saw an adorable felt owl treat basket while shopping the other day, and I knew my oldest daughter would love it because she is so ga-ga for owls right now, but it was $12.  Last year, I paid $4 for a Monster High treat bucket and I thought I was losing my sanity – it’s one night, and one night that was already expensive enough.  I wasn’t spending $12 on a treat bucket.  So, I did what any logical {Read More}

I created these lacing cards for my youngest daughter today, but let me tell you, she had to fight off her older sister for them!  They had so much fun weaving the twine through the holes – so even though it says preschoolers, older kids can have fun with them too!    Want to make your own lacing cards?  This method is easy and durable!  Here’s what you’ll need: thin cardboard (think the back of a notebook – I used the {Read More}
