I couldn’t go into any grocery store without seeing how cheap watermelons are right now. Or should I say how affordable watermelons are right now. This size watermelon was only a few dollars. The larger watermelons would work too, but you would just need a whole bunch more material.
What you will need: Baking Soda, Vinegar, Dish Soap and food coloring (that is optional).

I headed to The Dollar Tree to see what summer goodies they had, knowing that I wanted to make some sort of 4th of July wreaths. When I saw the display of flip flops, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Continue reading “Dollar Tree 4th of July Flip Flop Wreaths”
Anytime I hear “Farmhouse” I get nervous I’m about to spend too much money on something that looks old. Most of the time it’s a reproduction of something I’m fairly certain my grandparents had.

So if you were to ask me last month about any Easter crafts I was working on, I could have shown you a list of things I had planned. Honestly there were a few more things on that list that I just didn’t get to do.
Earlier this week we received the call we had been dreading for Billiam’s mom… and just like that we were on our way to Pittsburgh.
All of the crafts I have sitting in my office and plans for spring will be there when we get back. I’m actually sitting in a hotel room somewhere in South Carolina right now, trying to get back to my to do list before I fall too far behind.

I’m not sure when it happened, but sometime in the last year… I see Hidden Mickey’s everywhere. If you aren’t familiar with what a Hidden Mickey is, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Finding the outline of Mickey in unusual places. Continue reading “Hidden Mickey Easter Nests”
So usually this time of year Pinterest is filled with pages and pages of beautifully dyed Easter eggs that seem a bit too good to be true. Each year I tell myself I’m not going to wait till the last minute to see if any of them actually work. Like in real life.
The Silk Dyed egg tutorials seemed easy enough, and I made sure to read through 2 or 3 different postings. They were all the same. Except one had an extra step. I’ll note that as I go through how my trial with six eggs went.

I didn’t realize how popular these grapes would be as I was making them. It seemed that as fast as I could make them my boys were walking by and grabbing them.
They are a super simple and quick snack to make for a bunch of different occasions. The great thing about these is that you can customize the colors that you use.

One of the things I honestly never thought about before becoming a parent was where my kids were going to go on non-school days. It’s not on any parenting list, they just show up. I loved those random days as a kid… something fun and different, but now as a parent I’m like … OK… another day that I need to plan.
It can be a bit stressful. Where are they going to go? How are they going to get there? How will it change our schedule? AND… how do I keep them away from screens (which is a problem I’m encountering more and more).
