30 of the Best St. Patrick’s Day Crafts, Recipes & Activities for Kids

St. Patrick's Day Crafts

We don’t really “celebrate” St. Patick’s Day with the kids in the traditional sense. I feel like we Christmas just ended…and Easter is right around the corner.

Oils

Overwhelmed by ALL the Essential Oils? Start Here!

For the last year or so, I have been telling Charles that I wanted to buy some essential oils. I saw everybody else and their mother sharing their success stories online, and with a child who regularly gets traditional medicine to manage terrible allergies and growing pains, I was curious about alternative treatments. So, after hemming…

Washi Tape

Washi Tape Storage Ideas

Washi tape is one of those things I can’t stop buying. Like scrapbook paper. And buttons. And books. And pens. And stickers. Kind of like all of those things. Unlike books, or stickers, or pens, though…washi can be a little trickier to store. I want it out where I can see it so I know…

Jamberry Nail Wraps Giveaway AND a Fun Jamberry Special (for February only!)

I’ve been wearing Jamberry nail wraps since the summer. I love them, you guys. In November I became a Jamberry consultant after hosting a successful Facebook party, but you know how it goes…life gets crazy and the things you mean to do just kind of get pushed aside.

Let Kids Connect with Out-of-Town Family Through the Love of Play

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Kinskii. The opinions and text are all mine. When we moved to Texas over ten years ago, we left behind a lot of family. This was pre-kids, and pre-Skype (I know, whaaaat?), and we had the flexibility for long chats on the phone and…

DIY Planning Area

DIY Planning Station using Make Market from Michaels

I attended a blogging event celebrating the grand opening of the beautiful new Southlake Michaels. If you’re local to Southlake (or within reasonable driving distance) and love you some Michaels, you’ll want to make sure you visit this store.
