Here is an easy and inexpensive way to display your Instagram photos as wall art! I created this display for our playroom.
It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged, but I thought I would share some pics from the train-themed birthday party we just had for my son. (Second birthday)
The party was at the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park in Scottsdale — a perfect venue for any train-loving child! Continue reading
This sensory play box is an easy way to introduce your toddler to sensory play! Sensory play is an important way that babies and toddlers learn by experiencing the world through their senses.
Sensory play includes any activity that stimulates your young child’s senses: touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing. Sensory activities and sensory tables facilitate exploration and naturally encourage children to use scientific processes while they play, create, investigate and explore. Spending time stimulating their senses helps children develop cognitively, linguistically, socially and emotionally, physically and creatively.

I just received the set of 6 Ball heritage mason jars that I recently ordered on Amazon! What a deal… when I ordered they were on sale for $7.99. The same jars are around $15 at Michaels right now!
I am using this particular jar to hold baking soda in my laundry room. I was wishing that there was a way to make this lid into a pour spout… and then an idea popped into my head! I envisioned the top of a salt container and wondered if I could make it fit on top of the mason jar. And voila, this is the tutorial that I came up with for making your very own mason jar pour spout lids! Enjoy.
Hi, friends! Check out my newest project: fabric bunting that doesn’t require sewing. (I don’t even own a sewing machine… maybe I will take the time to learn to sew sometime in the future!)
Remember to pin this page to Pinterest if you like the tutorial, so you can access it later when you’re ready to make your own fabric bunting.
The supplies I used are pictured above. (Not pictured: iron and ironing board.) You can score some great deals on fabric scraps at your local fabric or crafting store. I bought these patterns in a pack I found at Tuesday Morning (fat quarters).
I am so excited to share with you a photo tour of our son’s first birthday party! We chose a “little man” theme, with mustaches and bowties, which was so fun! Enjoy the tour of our party and check out the tutorials and party ideas I have included below 🙂 I will also share where I found all kinds of great bargains on party supplies and decorations 🙂
How cute is this relatively simple DIY craft project? The best part . . . it is very inexpensive with these fun products found in The One Spot at Target (the shelves of bins near the entrance). If you haven’t discovered these cute little products yet, run to your nearest Target and check them out!
Today’s fun project was this distressed photo frame. In fact, I made two of them.
I found the picture frames on clearance for $3.60 (!) at Hobby Lobby. The before pic doesn’t show it very well, but the frames had an ugly greenish tint. So I bought them for a steal, with the intention of painting them.
CONFESSION: This was my first time painting anything for the home. So, if I can do it, you definitely can. It was easier than I thought it would be!
This one is so easy it doesn’t require much explanation.
The container is upcycled – it was a large plastic jar of almonds that we bought from Costco.
Check out this gorgeous rustic wine rack that just arrived in the mail! (Isn’t it like a mini-Christmas when online orders arrive?) See below for ideas of how to make one yourself, or buy a similar style online.
