Styrofoam Sequin Easter Eggs

Making seasonal projects is such a joy filled process. I enjoy making things, no matter how simple, with my own two hands. In a time where it’s easy to get buried behind our phones or computers; taking time to create is just necessary for the soul. Over the weekend I made a few sequin Easter…

Spring Pasta Salad

Today the weather is beautiful and I’m so thankful after all the grey days lately. I made this pasta salad for lunch last week and it’s a wonderful addition to a BBQ or cookout. It’s light, but filling and is a terrific way to add a few more vegetables into your diet. This dish would…

Casual Easter Tablescape

I love an excuse to decorate and I absolutely love the spring season. Pastel everything, awesome candy and baby animals- what’s not to like? It’s a fresh start or a rebirth if you will, after the long winter. I “shopped” my house to create this casual and inviting table setting. I don’t have a formal…

Easter Basket Ideas {Toddler Girl Edition}

I always get excited to celebrate the holidays with my kids. It’s fun to break out old traditions and create new ones. Easter will be here in less than a month so I have started brainstorming Easter basket filler ideas. Toddlers are full of energy and curiosity and I want to build a basket that…

Infused H2O

A goal I am always working toward, is to drink more water. If I’m being honest, I have no trouble sipping iced coffee or wine. Ha! I like water, but I can never consume enough. I know water is vital to help our body stay hydrated and to function at its best. I am committed…

DIY Twine Napkin Rings

  Spring arrives today and I just can’t wait for warmer temperatures and spending more time outdoors. I ┬áhave been thinking about planting flowers, herbs and vegetables in my flower beds and containers and that immediately sends my mind to dining alfresco. I don’t have a deck or porch, but I have a lovely outdoor…

Oreo Dirt Cups

My son saw this box of Jello-O Creations during our weekly shopping trip and asked if we could buy it. Normally I make a lot of food from scratch, but sometimes convenience wins. I’m a busy mom and occasionally I don’t mind spoiling my kiddos with a special treat. This prepackaged dessert makes 6 5oz…

Bunny Ear Headbands

My daughter is one, soon to be two and I enjoy making hair accessories for her (even though she doesn’t have much of it). Since Easter is coming up in a few weeks, I’ve started to brainstorm basket filler ideas and thought it would be fun to make some cute bunny ears for her to…

Sweet & Salty Snack Mix

The other week I was grocery shopping and came across a snack mix made by Cheez-It crackers. It was a sweet and salty combination of snack foods and my son and I reduced it to nothing with a quickness. It wasn’t a very big box and it was almost $3.00, so I started thinking it…

Lucky Charms Treats

We love cereal in this house- it’s an easy breakfast or snack and super kid friendly. We all really love Chocolate Chex and of course many of the kid classics; Fruit Loops, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Lucky Charms. When I saw the limited edition box with only clover marshmallows I knew I had to pick…
