Burlap Spring Wreath

I LOVE spring. So to celebrate I created this Burlap Spring Wreath. First, start with a wreath frame, burlap, a nest, eggs (found at Walmart), and vintage Easter grass (found at DollarTree). Next, wrap the wreath frame with the burlap. I left a bit of it out on both sides to resemble a bow. Then, secure

Peter Rabbit Candy-Free Easter Basket

In our family, all of the kids (and sometimes the adults) go Easter egg hunting. Everyone usually ends up with quite a bit of candy. To try to make things a little more healthy, a few of my blogging friends and I each created a no-candy Easter basket. (I’ve included photos and links to all of

5 Family Fun Easter Traditions

Easter is one of my favorite holidays. We always get together as a family and celebrate. Here are 5 Family Fun Easter traditions that I adore! 1- Buying Easter dresses/outfits. While growing up, before Easter my mom would take us to the mall and we would get to pick out an Easter outfit. It was

Peter Rabbit Baby Shower

I just adore Peter Rabbit and his siblings Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton Tail. Beatrix Potter (the author) was an amazing woman who had a fairly difficult life. Ever since reading the book as a little girl I’ve liked it, but it wasn’t until Amazon (here) and has 4.75 stars out of 710 reviews! Its a

Burlap Easter Bunny Banner

Recently, I made this burlap Easter bunny banner. And I just love it. Although I wanted to hold off, I couldn’t wait until closer to Easter to share it with you. It was very easy to make (little to no craft experience needed) and took me about 30 minutes. And it was super inexpensive! First

Pot o’ Gold Treasure Hunt for Kids

   I come from a long line of Irish ancestors. There is common Irish saying that goes like this: ‘A Pound of Pluck is Worth a Ton of Luck’. Pluck means courage, bravery, and determination. I was thinking of a fun activity to do for kids based on this saying and came up with this

Words of Affirmation Valentine’s Jars

I read the book The 5 Love Languages. In the book you learn that everyone appreciates being reminded of why they are loved (no matter what love language they have). Some value it more than others but everyone likes knowing why they are loved. So these jars will make just about anyone happy. But is especially a

Valentine’s Door Decor

You can make this Valentines door hanging by using any frame (no glass or back) and hanging an object in it. It takes 5-10 minutes to put together. I found the frame and heart wreath at a thrift store for $1.50 each. I examined how the wreath was made and took photos of the back

How To Make a Mr. Fredricksen Costume from the Movie ‘UP’.

My son, the baby Russell and Mason, the Mr. Frederickson met on Halloween through a family friends’ coworker. We had a blast doing a photo shoot with both of them. I wanted to know how he made his costume so I asked him and he made a description of How To make a Mr. Fredricksen costume

How to Make a Badge for Kids

 This tutorial will work for just about any badge. Birthday’s, Dress-up, Super Hero Logos, Halloween costumes, or any other reason you have to make a badge. They are very EASY, quick, and inexpensive. They stick on really well and also peel right off so you can wash the outfit when needed.  In addition, I was surprised and

Top Photo of 2013 on Major TV/Radio/Weather Station

Earlier this year, our babysitter Candice told us that our son Denali looked just like Russell from the movie UP. And because he really did, the name stuck. Since then, we often call him ‘Baby Russell’. So for Halloween we wanted to dress him up like Russell. I started gathering his costume from different places

D.I.Y. Flower Centerpiece

Being the frugal gal I am, it is rare for me to have a centerpiece full of fresh flowers and real cranberries. Yet, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity when I realized this arrangement would cost me $2.50. ($4.50 if I had to buy the vase and dish, which I didn’t) and it only took me

3 Simple Ways to Keep Christ in Christmas
