Hair Dos and How Tos

Simple Poolside Poncho

The kids started summer swim lessons this week. As we were walking in for the first day of classes I noticed a mom slipping beach towels over her kids’ heads. I looked a bit closer and realized they were towel ponchos – perfect! I knew they’d be really easy to make, so easy that I…

Summer Bucket List

Annabel’s last day of school is today, which means I am soon going to have an energetic girl on my hands every single day. I enrolled her in a few classes and activities, but I tried to make sure there was plenty of open time for unstructured play and fun. The other day I said…

DIY Soda Bottle Jet Packs

I like to give the guests at my kids’ parties favors that they can use again and again. Since James is having a space party, I decided on jet packs. I came across several tutorials on how-to make them on Pinterest, but they were all huuuuge and a bit more complicated than I thought was necessary. Instead…

Easy Fabric Rosette Headband

I have piles of leftover material from all the different things I’ve made, so I thought it was a good time to make some fabric rosettes. I’ve used them to make crowns and belts before, but this time I made a quick and easy rosette headband for Annabel!

DIY Confetti Eggs

Last year I had pictures of the kids smashing confetti eggs on Easter, and a lot of you asked about them. Confetti eggs, or cascarones, are big in Hispanic celebrations, and are pretty popular here in the LA area. They are very easy to make and are a good option for anyone who wants to dye eggs but…
