As promised from the Wild Lounge Before & After reveal, here is the tutorial for DIY marquee lights. I have never invited anyone else to provide content on Teal & Lime, but Lindsey did such a fabulous job with the write-up and pictures of her [...]
I rarely decorate for holidays other than Christmas, but this year I feel compelled to do more. My kids are aware and excited for upcoming holidays now. They decorate at school, and I decided it was time to start decorating at home, too. Nothing wrong with a little festivity! I just have one rule…it has [...]
While brainstorming ideas for preschool Valentines, my boys were sipping on Apple Strawberry Crushers from Trader Joe’s. A lightbulb went off. They would make super cute “I’ve Got a Crush on You” Valentines.
I love the idea of giving a healthy treat to preschoolers, instead of candy. The Apple Strawberry Crushers are perfect for [...]
Holiday treats for the boys classmates generally become a bigger production than I would like. I just can’t help it…I always have the urge to make something crafty. With 30 students in my son’s kindergarten class, I wanted to make something crafty, but easy and quick.
In assembly line fashion with [...]
My boys are exchanging the cutest gifts this year! I was inspired to make these after watching Kimbo on My Craft Channel. Side note: I watch My Craft Channel episodes when I am running on the treadmill…I am telling you, I live and breathe DIY…even when I am running.
Double-sided tape and glitter = magic!
This is possibly the easiest and quickest DIY project I have ever done. These glittered card holders are perfect for displaying holiday cards, as place card holders for setting the table, or to hold food labels at your New Year’s party.
I know we are at the height of [...]
My son was anxious to help wrap the presents we found for his cousins, but I hadn’t bought wrapping paper yet. I love and encourage him to help, so I wanted to make his gift wrapping wishes come true. I came up with an easy solution that we both loved.
For his birthday he received [...]
Ever since putting our former media armoire in the dining room niche, I have had big plans to use it for storage. But, at first I was not sure what to store. After two years in our home, I finally figured out exactly what I needed. Then, it took [...]
My favorite gifts to give are personal and handmade. It truly is the thought that counts. Nothing shows more thoughtfulness than a DIY gift. Handmade gifts are also perfect for the “person who has everything”.
I am always collecting handmade gift ideas. I have a Pinterest board I recently [...]
My baby is 5! Unlike all of his other birthdays, I did not plan a birthday party this year. We were visiting family in Dallas over his birthday. With the late summer vacation and the pending start of kindergarten, I decided against adding any stress to this time of year with party [...]
I have a jar of happiness to share with you today. With my crazy busy life, I still try to delight in the simple things. This past weekend I found happiness in a jar, some wooden spools, and pretty twine.
I ordered this sample pack of baker’s twine from The Twinery. There [...]
Babies get all the great gifts and the new mother sometimes gets overlooked. Our nanny recently had her first baby and we already gave plenty of cute gifts for baby and hand-me down baby gear. So, when we got the chance to go meet baby for the first time, I was determined to bring the [...]
With loads of cute washi tapes and paper tapes, it is easy to amass a collection quickly. I found a bunch of cute, inexpensive paper tapes at Target to kickstart my collection. I even found some tape for the kids from the Kid Made Modern Collection. These tapes are a lot more paper-like and don’t [...]
My son, almost 5 years old, declared one weekend that we were going to make a bird feeder. He takes after his mommy and always has a project brewing. I was onboard, but quickly had visions of cutting wood and nailing pieces together with a 4 year old. It sounded a bit frustrating, for both [...]
The She’s Going to Pop baby shower decor and food helped set the party mood, but the true fun lies in the games and the memories created during the shower.
We did three simple, but fun party games. The round ottoman in [...]
