Do you ever look at your kid and think, why are you so obsessed with me? Our little ones love to copy all that we do, especially when it comes to our… unbecoming habits. *sigh* If only we could get them to model our love of broccoli like they do our (accidental) use of colorful language.
One of my favorite parts about the holidays is that you get cards in the mail, instead of just bills and promotional catalogs. There’s nothing quite like seeing messages from friends and family, near and far. But what do you do with all those cards after the holidays are over?
I’m not sure about you guys, but I love crafting at Christmas time! However, things can get hectic, so I’m always on the lookout for fun and easy projects that also serve a purpose.

With just a little bit of paint and some creativity, you’ll have a unique set of gift pouches for friends and family. You can even get the kids involved- they’re THAT easy!
Move over, boring bubble baths. Bath bombs have been on the scene for a couple of years and have single-handedly revolutionized the way we unwind and de-stress. Not only do they smell like a bouquet of fresh flowers, but their water-activated explosion of vivacious color is nothing short of a spectacle. The best news? You don’t have to venture into a hectic shopping mall to experience this kaleidoscope of color.
Thanksgiving is coming up soon, so that means setting the table with your favorite plates and décor, gathering up friends and family, and feasting on an amazing meal.

And we don’t want a drop of wine wasted, right? How about creating these easy and affordable personalized drink markers for everyone in the group? They’re perfect for Thanksgiving, and everyone can take them home after. They’ll match any Thanksgiving table setting with their traditional colors, plus teal for a fun pop of color! But, the best part is that you can make them in any color palette you wish.
As a mom, Halloween is serious business. Between finding the last Moana costume for your daughter to making a DIY pirate’s hat, there is little time to make your own costume plans for Halloween before it is 3:30 pm on October 31st.
Happy Fall! While everyone else is getting their house spooky for Halloween, I figured it would be fun to create something a little more sophisticated that matched my décor a bit better.
Let’s make today the most colorful day of the year.
