4th of July Sand Art

With the 4th of July coming up I knew I wanted to do a fun little craft to celebrate.

Of course, me being me, I turned to the Dollar Tree for inspiration and came up with this very easy, very cheap but very pretty 4th of July Sand Art vase and centerpiece. The Dollar Tree has been my go-to source for fun holiday decorations for a while now. With everything priced at a dollarRead More →

DIY dollar store spring wreath

I have always loved the wreaths I find in stores. The thought of having such a fun and seasonal decoration to greet visitors when they come to my house was endearing. Unfortunately, the price of these wreaths was not nearly so appealing.

I think I am in love with this project. Not only because it makes my door so fun and colorful but because of the endless options there are in making it. Because ofRead More →

I absolutely love the DollarTree when it comes to seasonal and holiday crafting. Easter crafts are no exception to this! I was so torn this year about what I wanted to make that I probably wandered around the store for an hour. They just have so many great Easter items in stock this year! I know that I will be going back to fill up on Easter Basket supplies once I can sneak away from the kids. I was compensated for this post.

Earlier this month my daughter missed out on a school party due to the flu. In fact, we all got the flu, how fun right? But it wasn’t being sick that bothered her so much as missing out on the party with friends. To try and make up for it I promised that she could create her own party snacks to share with her sister. Because we are trying to be a little bit healthier as a family, snacks like these are rare so this was a suitable pick me up in her eyes. These snacks are not Keto Friendly and so my husband and IRead More →

Earth day is one of my favorite days of the year. A whole day where people are filled with thoughts of nature and the wonder of our world. It is a day that should be repeated several times throughout the year in my opinion.  Even better, taking care of our world should just be commonplace in and of itself. It is certainly a value that I have tried to instill in my own children and today’s Earth Day fun was a great excuse for some family bonding time.

When we first moved into our house the bathroom decor was a bit..bland. Everything was beige, black and white. Thankfully, even with a limited budget, it was not too hard to jazz it up a little bit. The first step was thinking of a theme for the room. With a bit of discussion, we finally settled on a beach/marine theme. We choose this for several reasons. First of all the colors, blue and shell shades can really make a room feel soothing and calm, perfect for a bathroom. Secondly, beach themes are popular when it comes to bathrooms so I knew it would be relativelyRead More →
