I had a feeling that there was some lint trapped in the dryer hose but after investigating a little bit we discovered…Continue

‘Tis the Season for everything peppermint. This is a quick and easy three ingredient sugar scrub. I would recommend using it twice a week to exfoliate and moisturize your skin in the shower. I used it right away yesterday and followed it with my coconut oil lotion (yes, the scents are completely conflicting), and am crazy soft.

So, I have been inspired to create an art studio for my girls. They have watched me work over the years and all my “creativity” has rubbed off on them. So, being the awesome mother I am, I am going to give them their own space. OK, I’ll admit, it is more for me than them because, I WANT MY OFFICE/SPACE BACK! I said it! Call me selfish if you want, but my babies have taken over.
Here are a few ideas, I have gathered from #Pinterest. Let me know which one is your favorite.…Continue

It’s the thought behind the gift that counts, but when that gift arrives in a beautifully hand wrapped package it’s a bit more special. Receiving a fabulously wrapped gift doesn’t just build up anticipation for the gift inside, it adds to the gift as a whole. You can do something simple, like wrapping your gift in kraft paper and decorating it with washi tape, or get your hands dirty and make some yarn pom-poms. However you decide to decorate your gift, you can always find something lying…Continue

Maybe it was sheer bravado, maybe it was the fact that I collaborated with a fellow blogger last week whose blog is all about DIY and Pinterest inspiration, but when 36 Year Old had to go away for one day on the weekend I was about to blow 3 Year Old’s mind with a series of well-intentioned yet poorly executed crafts, a house specialty.
I am not a crafty person. In fact, I think I am magnificently bad at crafts. It probably…Continue
