One of my Christmas gifts this year was a Garmin Vivofit 2 Activity Tracker. I was excited to use the tracker, but I was turned off by the silicone wristband that came with it. I wore it for a few days, but it clashed with everything – especially my work clothes. After searching online for alternative […]

I am super excited to be a part of this year’s Happy Harry Potter series with my wizard-loving, book-nut friend Marissa of Rae Gun Ramblings. We are a Harry Potter loving family, and I’ve even gone all-out with a Harry Potter themed birthday party, starting with invitations delivered by owl and wands with special cores […]
This is a quick and easy necklace I made to wear to Alt Summit. Awhile back, I found a huge bag of sequins from my Mom’s stash. So far, I embellished a graphic tee and made sequins bangles with them, and I still have hundreds (thousands??) of sequins left. Read the full tutorial after the jump.

In our former home, I had bubble printed paintings made by our sons hanging up in our bedroom. For this project, […]

I know it is still September, but I am always on the lookout for “grown-up” gifts that kids can make for the […]
I’m so excited about today’s tutorial from Kelley. I have a nephew who has been fascinated with reptiles since he was a toddler. In fact, one of the very first projects I shared on this blog (back when it was just pictures documenting my projects and no blah blah blah from me!) was a snake […]
This post contains affiliate links. Milo’s Harry Potter birthday party was this past weekend and it was a whole lot of fun. Most of the stuff I did was inspired by all of the amazing Harry Potter parties that came before ours. You can see my inspiration board on Pinterest if you want to see a […]
I wanted to share one of my all time favorite tips on painting with kids. I can’t remember where I read it, and I wish I could give credit, because it has transformed our paintings from muddy messes to modern masterpieces. And it’s an easy one. Ridiculously easy, and totally common sense, actually. When I saw it, […]
