Hair Dos and How Tos

DIY Serpent Scarf

I wanted to make something small I could wear to Annabel’s Halloween events at school. That way I could be in the spirit, but not be distracting. This scarf will work well…although, with the way things are going, I’ll never be able to wear it – it’s going to be 95 degrees here on Friday!

DIY Witch’s Hat Door Hanging

I love the Santa Hat Door Hanging I made last year before Christmas, and I thought it would be fun to make a similar craft for Halloween. Just like the hanging Santa Hat, the hanging Witch’s Hat is really easy to make, and it looks so good.

Spiderweb Mobile

I know. You’re like, “Heather, WTF, you hate spiders.” And you’re right, I hate them so much — stupid spiders, thinking they’re so great with their eight legs. But Annabel isn’t afraid of spiders and I’m trying to keep it that way because someone has to kill them for me when Mike isn’t home! Last year Annabel…

DIY Mummy-Wrapped Halloween Letters

I know, I know, Halloween stuff already. But I thought of this idea back in June and I’ve been so excited to try it. With October only two weeks away (aaaaah!), I thought I’d share how I made these for anyone who’s ready to get a jump on things.

Getting Organized

I’ve been working hard to get our lives more organized. With Annabel now in school and she and James both in different activities, it’s more important than ever to have everything in order. I’ve been wanting to set up a sort of “Command Center” in our house for a while now, and the little nook…

DIY Easy Embellishments

One of the things on Annabel’s school supply list is a sweater/sweatshirt that she needs to keep in her backpack in case she gets cold(I guess sometimes the classrooms get over-air conditioned). I bought her a cheap, simple grey sweatshirt, but when she saw it she said, “It’s not pretty enough.” I honestly should have…

Kid-Made Pom-Pom Necklaces

School starts next week, and Annabel is all over the place with excitement. Because of this, keeping her busy has been extra-challenging. I thought making these necklaces would help her build her sewing skills (we’ve been working on her hand-sewing) while coming with the added bonus of entertaining her for an hour or so. And, the…

Becoming Joy From Inside Out

After putting together Annabel’s Wyldstyle costume for Halloween, she has been begging me to help turn her into other characters. She usually asks for something really hard to pull off, so when she asked if I could turn her into Joy from Inside Out I said yes because it was by far the easiest request she’d made.
