DIY Glitter “Love” Canvas

Love Canvas

It's been awhile since I've been crafty around here, so I decided to do a quick Michael's drive-by yesterday with Shane in tow.  This means I had all of 10 minutes to fly through the store with him kicking and screaming.  That, paired with having no idea what I was even there for, lead to a rather unproductive and stressful trip to the craft store (do you see why I have taken a break from ...

DIY Glitter Deer Head

DIY Glitter Deer Head

So in typical holiday-obsessed fashion, I completely decked the halls all day Sunday.  It may have been 80 degrees outside but our house is twinkling, glittery, and smells like "Sparkling Snow" 24-7.  I love it!  I don't really think I have any corners or wall space left for more Christmas DIYs, but I just had to find a spot for this one.  I've been wanting to make this glitter deer head canvas ...

DIY Behavior Chart {to help keep Mommy in check too}

Behavior Chart

While looking through Pinterest last night I came across this behavior chart.  It really stood out to me as something that I thought could work well with Nathan.  Lately I have been trying to come up with a solution for his constant request for things....Mommy, after school can we go to the mall and get a Lego Police Station?  Mommy, after we go to your store we can go to my store and I'll get ice ...

DIY Mother’s Day Tote


DISCLAIMER: IF YOU ARE MIMA OR NANA STOP READING NOW  :) Yesterday the boys and I worked on part of the gifts we are going to send out for Mother's Day in a few weeks.  My mom and Greg's mom live across the country from us so we know they love anything tangible that is a reminder of the boys.  What's better than seeing their little hand prints on something they made and knowing they can carry ...

Happy St. Patty’s Day!

fruit rainbow

We celebrated yesterday with friends, family and neighbors!  I think I tried every version of corned beef and cabbage known to man, and had my first Irish Car-bomb since college!  This mama still has it (not really, not really at all!). I made this easy, fairly healthy, and festive rainbow fruit platter!  Within minutes it was attacked by all the kids, and I was happy to see they went for the ... [ Read More ]

DIY Moss Spring Wreath

If there is anything you will come to learn about me it's that I am wreath obsessed.  I have them hanging all over our house, and I will change up our front door with each passing holiday and season.  While I could go crazy and transition my Valentine's Day wreath into a St. Patty's Day one and then an Easter wreath...I've decided to keep things simple and make one I can have up for all of Spring. ...

Toddler Chevron Art

There is nothing that makes Nathan more proud than showing off his artwork, especially pieces that we hang on the fridge or the walls.  The only problem is he comes home with piles of art every week from preschool and I can't possible find a place to hang it all.  I have been using the app called Artkive via my iPhone, and I totally love it.  You can take photos of their art, save it to the app ...

Cupid’s Been Here


Holidays are my favorite excuse for getting crafty and adding some festive DIY projects to our home decor.  With February a day away, I thought it would be fun to share some of the Valentine's Day crafts I have completed.  I think I have hit my quota for all things pink and glittery this past month, but that's what makes this one of my favorite holidays to get festive with!  Moving forward I will ...
