I was trying to update the original post of these cards with the new version, but I thought it would be easier just to start a new post, so here it is. I have created two new designs to the 90’s fortune teller valentine’s day cards for free download. I made a boy’s version, Dusty Blue, because my girls were telling me when they handed them out on Valentine’s Day, they saw the boys playing with them the most, which was unexpected, but inspiring. Here is the Dusty Blue Fortune Teller and the Dusty Blue Valentine’s Day Card.
It’s almost that time of year…..the time where all I do is talk/think and pin about Halloween, where everyone around me either finds my enthusiasm about the holiday really annoying & weird or adorable & fun. I just can’t help being excited for the holiday!! Who doesn’t love bringing out their dark side to create creepy and wicked things…..so it’s just me then? Lol Anyways, for all you weirdos (like myself) who are looking for a kid-friendly/less disgusting apothecary jar option, you’ve come to the right place!
Have you ever thought those apothecary jars look amazingly creepy and just really cool to incorporate for your Halloween decor? Have you ever read up on what kinds of things go into them?! Have you ever thought, “Gross, what if my crazy toddler touches one of those and breaks it onto the floor – what kinda mess would I be cleaning up and what kind of smell would go with it?” Continue reading “Food Free & Kid Friendly Apothecary Halloween Jars”→
I remember when I was in grade school and my friends and I would make these paper crafts that would tell us if we were going to get married, how many kids we were going to have or what kind of house we were going to live in. Remember MASH!? haha Anyways, these paper fortune tellers would give us girls hours of fun during school and after! Continue reading “Fortune Teller Valentine’s Day Cards”→
I love everything about decorating a Christmas tree and have always enjoyed spending the time to perfect where everything goes. Some people (my sister and husband) might say I’m a little bit of a control freak with where my decorations go. I can get a little crazy when you start to clutter the same ornaments together or the “spend more time on the back that nobody’s going to see” instead of concentrating on the (more important) front of the tree. I didn’t always have nice ornaments growing up and in my younger years, I had a lot of hand-me downs and dollar store decoration, but even then I always took pride in the way my tree turned out. Maybe you have no clue on how to decorate a tree or every time you do, it just doesn’t look quite as nice as all those Pinterest ones? Well, hopefully these few suggestions will help you improve your Christmas tree decorating. Remember, I AM NOT an expert nor do I have any skills in a decor/design background…..these are just my opinions only. Continue reading “Decorate A Stunning Christmas Tree On A BUDGET!”→
Anyone else think the Halloween animatronics are overrated? Yeah neither do I, but who can really afford them at $300 a piece? Ok, so I am not going to show you how to make one of these but I’ll show you a scaled back version…ok WAYYY scaled back. First you need supplies….

It’s just about time for my favorite season…Halloween! I love everything and anything about this holiday, especially making craft projects for around the house. I have children and live in a neighborhood where lots of kids trick-or-treat, so I try and keep all my projects age appropriate but still kinda spooky. Remember: you can always add fake blood or red paint to your projects to make them a little more gory.
This project is a skeleton wreath for the door – a perfect welcoming for those trick-or-treaters!
I never grew up with a lot of family traditions, especially around Easter, as we were not a religious family and didn’t celebrate this holiday each and every year. In school, we were asked to list a family tradition, that we partaked in on the holidays and I really couldn’t think of too many. When I heard some of the other kids traditions, I thought to myself “I wish we did that!” Now that I have my own family, we’ve started many traditions together!
For this holiday, we do the Easter Egg Challenge!We are a pretty competitive bunch but we feel it’s also important to teach our kids how to have fun (while trying to win)! In real life, there are losers and to avoid being one, it starts by having a good attitude if and when you lose.
