Well i’m finally sharing my handful of tried and true that I swear make the world of difference!   1 // Eye drops I’ve noticed as I have gotten older [turning 30 has hit me like a ton of bricks!] my eyes are either red in…

    DIY Play Snow

    I don’t know about you guys but here in Maryland we have had some super cold and windy days but very little actual snow! I don’t care what anyone says, if it’s going to be super cold out, at least give me something pretty to look at! AND something for the kids to play with!

    DIY Mason Jar Snow Globes

    This is one of my all time favorite holiday DIYs! I just love how sweet they look! Not to mention they only take a few minutes to put together. My daughter and I made these last Christmas as party favors for my nieces for our Holiday party. Each girl loved them so much and I love that it is keepsake they can keep forever. I used traditional sized mason jars for these to keep them all uniform but I think making some with varying sizes of jars and trees would make an incredible display, too! mason jar (size of your choice) bottle brush tree (that fits your size jar) epsom…

    DIY Cinnamon Ornaments

       Now that my oldest daughter is three, the Holidays have become so magical all over again. It’s like I’m a kid again, seeing everything for the first time, through her eyes. It’s been fun combining me and my husband’s traditions as well and making them our own. Something we have been sure to do the passed few years is make Cinnamon Ornaments. I love making these for a couple reasons. First off, they smell absolutely incredible- like only what I can imagine Christmas dreams are made of. Secondly, there is something so sweet and old fashion about them. I love the idea of making a batch or two of…

    Five Current Favs for Kiddos I came in hot last week bragging about my Five Current Favs featuring all kid/baby-unrealted items.
