Hair Dos and How Tos

DIY Pumpkin Mason Jars

Annabel’s Pre-K teachers are really amazing. Their personalities are so perfect for a chatty kid like Annabel – they’re great at encouragement and discipline without making the kids feel like they’re being singled out. They also went above and beyond this month, taking care of an unexpected problem in a way that made me so…

DIY Anna’s Coronation Day Hair

When we went to Disneyland a few weeks ago, Annie got a fancy Anna-from-Frozen-style up-do that she was in love with. As I took it down the next day, I promised her I’d figure out how to do it again for her. I wanted to come up with a simple way to do the style that…

Making A Wyldstyle Costume

Not long after Annabel saw The Lego Movie she declared she wanted to be Wyldstyle for Halloween. Since the movie came out in February, I didn’t think that would actually happen. But here we are, a few weeks before Halloween, and she’s still firmly insisting on Wyldstyle. I started looking for costumes from The Lego Movie…

DIY Pumpkin Candlesticks

One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to look at all of the fun Halloween decorations at different stores. Last week I was checking out an especially elaborate haunted table display when I spotted something pretty – a pair of glittery pumpkins on candlesticks. Unfortunately, when I asked about them,…

Play & Store Lego Tote

Annie has several Lego sets but nowhere baby-brother safe to build with them. She’ll often ask about taking her bricks to my parents’ house, but all of those small pieces are a pain to transfer. I was at my craft store shopping for something else when I came face-to-face with art/scrapbook totes. I realized they were the…

Quick Trip

I’ve been in New York City from Saturday early morning until late tonight (close to midnight) for the Social Good Summit. I’m here because I participated in the “comments/shares” for vaccines drive last month on behalf of Shot@Life. The summit has been incredibly eye-opening – I’ll have more about it and this trip tomorrow once I’m…

Quick And Easy Silverware Pockets

My cousin’s shower had a rustic burlap vibe and I wanted to tie it all together on the tables. I had a lot of leftover burlap from her door wreath, so I thought using it to make some silverware pockets would be cute and easy. I made two versions – one no-sew (the one above) and…

DIY Multi-Strand Burlap Wreath

I wanted to have something pretty and festive on my front door for my cousin’s shower this weekend, but couldn’t find anything pre-made that I loved. I thought I’d try to make something with a standard styrofoam wreath base, but then I came across this square wire wreath frame and I thought that would be more…
