Summer is done and my kids are back to school! During our lovely summer I put my kids in swim lessons. They had an absolute blast and we will definitely be back next year.
We had three amazing instructors and at the end of two weeks I wanted to give them a little something just […]
I had these four ugly brown picture frames sitting around that I was dying to do something with. My daughter’s room was desperately in need of stuff on the walls so I thought this would be a good project for her room. The only problem was these pictures frames are brown and her furniture is […]
My daughter will be turning 7 in 25 days! Wow! There is no way she can be 7 already, but the calendar does not lie. Starting around my birthday which was at the end of April, my daughter asked me everyday, “How many days until my birthday?” Everyday I would quickly do the math in my […]
School-wise this year has been an absolute blast! This year flew by and that means we must have been having fun. Teacher gifts are one of my favorite gifts to give each year. It doesn’t have to be big or expensive, just something that says thanks for putting up with my kids all year. Haha! […]
It was just a matter of time before we got invited to a Frozen themed birthday party. Ironically my 3 year old son was the first and not my six year old daughter, but I am pretty sure he knows the words to all the songs anyways because that is all we listened to in […]
Lately I am all about easy entertaining. I love having people over and I am totally the person who wants to hand make the invitations and create unique labels for all the food. Crafting is my passion. It’s my time to tune out the rest of the world and my time to just enjoy creating. […]
The only thing I like better than picking out gifts for people is wrapping gifts. I love turning something plain and simple into something unique and fabulous.
For instance I needed wrapping for my niece’s birthday gift and she is turning 7 years old. I found a pink bag in my stash of bags.
This past Saturday I had a booth at the 20th Annual Taste of Oviedo. I have to admit I had high hopes for this day. We have been attending The Taste of Oviedo for probably at least 10 years now and it’s a fantastic family event. They have tons of food, business booths, a car […]
For a school project my daughter needed to make a cardboard box car. We decided to construct a Strawberry Shortcake car. I knew immediately I wanted to make strawberry scented paint. I just kept thinking how cool would it be if the car smelled like strawberries.
After we constructed our car out of an old […]
Happy Belated Valentine’s Day to all my lovely peeps!! How was this day for you? Did your significant other go above and beyond or did they totally flop? My hubby certainly knows the way to my heart…..Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Hearts and flowers from the grocery store. To some this may seem kind of weak […]
