While the kids were on spring break, I arranged several Easter crafts for them to help pass the time. But I’m a sucker for starting a project – especially a holiday one, so I crafted right along side them. My husband would argue that I should just finish one of the three projects I already have started, but what fun would that be?! Besides...

  Every year I say I'm going to do a better job at decorating for spring time. It seems like every year I get too busy and decorating gets pushed to my mental low priority list.

Finding inexpensive indoor family activities can sometimes be difficult, and often leads to the same old "movie and popcorn night". While we enjoy a movie and popcorn as much as the next family, I am always looking for something else. When I saw this brilliant idea from my sister, I knew I had to try it out. She bought a large piece of...

I love having reasons to celebrate and today, I'm happy to share some fun items that YOU (yes, you!) can easily make for your own little leprechauns.  These goodies can be enjoyed at St. Patrick's Day celebrations or any kind of "Good Luck" theme party.

Spring is in the air, so what do my kids want to do?? Fly A Kite! It is definitely kite season.  Just yesterday at Costco they were selling the cutest kites.  My girls wanted to buy one so bad, but they didn't have enough money. So we did the next best thing--I told them we could make our own for cheaper and take them to the park and get some...

Sunburst frames and mirrors are popping up all over home decor lately. It gives a bit of a mid century, classic feel with a touch of modern thrown in. Recently, I saw one made from thin metal pipes, but it was heavy and rather pricey. After some study and consideration, I decided I could make my own using the humble drinking straw, and this is...

In my never-ending quest to slowly, but surely, convert our family to non-processed organic foods, I quickly realized a problem. And it's a big one since I have small children. I never thought about this until I started packing our own healthy snacks to take with us to play dates, preschool, and sporting events, but it's a big deal (at least in...

If you're a girlie girl like me, you probably have a ton of earrings. My current system of digging through a box that contained all my earrings, entwined together just wasn't cutting it anymore. Plus, I found myself not wearing earrings nearly as much because I couldn't see what I owned and my ears went naked for months! I decided to change...
