Hair Dos and How Tos

Easy Princess Leia Headband

The countdown is on to James’ Star Wars birthday party! I was walking through Joann’s Fabric getting supplies for some of the other things I’m putting together for the party when I came across Jumbo Chenille Stem. I thought it looked like hair, and then an idea was born. I was thinking I would make a…

Easy Necklace Headbands

It’s been awhile since I’ve put together a DIY. I’m really trying to get myself back into the swing of things, so I decided to start with something easy – and something I’m surprised I haven’t already shared! Turning a long necklace into a headband is a simple and beautiful way to fancy up any…

Tooth Fairy Letters

  After I posted about the letter I left Annabel from the Tooth Fairy, a bunch of you emailed me to ask about the letterhead. I wanted to put it here in case any of you wanted to use it!

“Hoppy” Valentine’s Day Printable

Annabel and I have been searching through the Dollar Spot at Target ever since the Valentine’s Day stuff was put out (you know, the day after Christmas). She found some little toy frogs and went crazy for them, “Mom, we HAVE to give these to my friends!” I bought enough for her class, and then…

DIY 5-Minute Moisture-Wicking Headband

I love moisture-wicking headbands (headbands made of special material that pulls the moisture away from your body). They’re great for exercise, bad hair days, or for keeping cool in the summer. However, I have two BIG problems with them. The first is that they’re ridiculously expensive – at least $10, but usually much more. The second…
