How we do Halloween


Dear October, Clearly you haven't received the memo that you are my favorite month because so far you have disguised yourself as your Summer buddies July, August and September.  I'm doing my best to give you the benefit of the doubt, but our weekly forecast is showing no break from the heat, and I am not a fan.  My spicy candles have been burning all day long, my boots are lined up, and my ...

Easter Bunny Canvas Art

Must Have Monday, Treat Yourself Tuesday, What I'm Eating Wednesday....all posts I had ready in my head but life had other plans for me this past week.  Fevers, colds, coughs, ear infections, pink eye, no sleep, doctor's appointments, e-mails, phone calls....I keep telling my friends that I think I am being punked.  What.A.Week!!! Amidst all this chaos I have completely spaced that Nathan started ... [ Read More ]

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 ...

Homemade Play Dough recipe


Nathan has been a broken record the last week asking me to make our own play dough.  I think this was an activity they did at school last week and obviously he thought it was so cool that he became OBSESSED over it.  He knows I look up how to do things on YouTube so he's been constantly shoving the iPad in my face asking me to look up instructions on how to make it.  Yesterday was his lucky ...

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...
