A simple and fun way to add a touch of spooky festivity to any halloween basket or treats for teachers, friends or family. I’ve seen a huge craze the last couple of years where people are making fun and creative Boo! Baskets to “boo” their friends, neighbors and more. I’ve seen this done a couple […]

I wanted to make a cute felt garland. So, what better holiday to do one for than St. Patrick’s Day? I made a template to cut out all the shapes I wanted and printed it out on semi thick paper. Regular copy paper works too, but I prefered something with a little bit more weight. […]

Where did the time go? The last 2.5 years, with the pandemic, 3 kids in school and sports, have all hit me harder than expected. I’ve taken the last year to reflect. I’ve been working on a fun side project, while mostly focusing on being a mom and my full-time career. However, it dawned on […]

diy Cruella DeVil birthday party

October 13, 2021

The perfectly cruel DIY theme for only the most marvelous fashionista. My daughters and I watched the new Disney’s Cruella movie on Disney+. We were floored at the incredible music, fashion and performances by both Emma Stone and Emma Thompson. Every single character, line, set detail, song choice, were impecible. I wouldn’t expect anything else […]

After the craziness that was 2020 (anyone else glad to say that year is behind us?), I really realized how much I wasn’t taking care of myself in that year. It was easy to forget about what I NEEDED, and what would make me a happier and better mom, wife, and friend…

Ok – this year has been crazy. My oldest started Kindergarten this year, and I’d be lying if I said that I was a little bummed that she wouldn’t be getting to experience any type of “end of the year” celebration of finishing Kinder and moving onto 1st grade. This entire last 3.5 months of […]

We are in a strange time. Everything seems so surreal. I don’t even know what to think, or how to emotionally deal with what is happening in our world right now. I’m sure many of you are all feeling the same way. With my kiddos home from school, and my family and I all being […]

Have you seen the resuable beeswax food wrappers? They have super cute designs on them, and come in various sizes to cover leftovers. The only problem…they cost an arm and a leg! For 3 individual wrappers it can be about $20 or more! And right now with the COVID-19 pandemic and grocery stores limited in […]

One of my favorite things to do with my kids, is to find fun crafts they can do with me, especially when the crafts are something they can give to others and feel proud of. This year, for Valentines day, because I’m about ready to have our 3rd little (and final), I wanted to do […]

Over the last 10 years, I’ve had several small businesses, a couple blogs, and a couple Etsy shops. All mostly while working […]
