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…

Hair Tie Lollipops

I was shopping at a cute kids’ boutique last week when I came across something for sale called a “Hair Tie Lollipop.” It was really cute and also really expensive – it was selling for $16! I knew it didn’t have even close to $16 worth of hair bands on it, so I decided to…

Easy Easter Wreath

I really wanted to make a nice Easter wreath for my front door, but I wasn’t sure exactly what to make it with. For a while I toyed with the idea of gluing that plastic Easter Basket grass all over a wreath form…clearly there was something wrong with me, because that stuff is the worst!! I thought…

Easy Birthday Favor Printable

Making A Rainbow Room

For the last two months, I’ve been working on my plan to redecorate Annabel’s room for her birthday. I involved Annabel in a few things, but I tried to be casual about it because I really wanted to surprise her by redoing her room while she was away at school. The big redecorating day was this…

No Candy Valentine: I Like You This Much

Whenever Valentine’s Day is approaching I start checking the dollar aisle at my local Target. Annabel’s school requests the parents not bring in candy treats, so I always try to find the cute little toys before they all get snatched up. This year I found these cute stretchy hearts with arms that came six to a package….
