Mother’s Day Gift Idea – Handprint Tote Bags

April 29, 2014 4 Comments

In less than two weeks is Mother’s Day and I am trying to get ahead of the game by getting everything made now. Even though I think all moms should be celebrated daily, I enjoy giving a little extra on Mother’s Day. The most popular gifts have always been those that are homemade, one-of-a-kind, and are made with the help of my little ones.

A little fun fact you probably don’t know about me: My husband and I first met playing poker. We use to play weekly at the same tournaments, often founding ourselves going head-to-head in games. It was always a good time and I guess I can credit poker for helping us cross paths.

DIY Summer Road Trip Kits & Memory Box for the Whole Family

February 28, 2014 17 Comments

These DIY summer road trip kits & memory boxes are part of a sponsored campaign for #CollectiveBias. All opinions expressed are my own.

I have always loved road trips. Almost immediately after I started driving, my friends and I would plan a handful of road trips each summer. Last summer was the first time I went on one in years, but we didn’t take the kids. I have always thought about where we can go as a family, but how would I, or we, survive?

I personally love small gifts that can be given as a simple ‘Thank You’ or a reward to my little ones. This is a sweet and simple idea that can be put together with little time.

Battling Cough, Cold, & Flu Season with 3 Kids + a DIY Kleenex Box Train Craft

When someone gets sick on our house, a one-day virus can easily turn into a few week ordeal. It doesn’t take much for my 2, 3, and 4 year old to pass around the sickness like a ping pong ball. No matter how much I try to prevent it, every year it happens. We have to find ways to stay busy indoors during these times, and crafts are always a hit.
