It has been far too long since I have posted, but I am very excited today to be sharing a different design project of sorts. I have decided to try my hand at creating my own Lego IDEAS based off their popular BrickHeadz product line. I love these quirky block shaped characters and knew the ever iconic Garden Gnome would lend themselves perfectly to being re-created in this brick format.

My son has never been good about doing class Valentine’s. As my 6 year old daughter sat at the kitchen table happily writing hers out this weekend, I remembered back to all the whining and complaining that came with doing his at that age. I think it took us the good part of a week to actually made it through his entire class list.
It has been quite a few years since I made my original Mickey Ball Ornaments and the post is still wildly popular at this time of year. I still love them mine and am always excited to put them on our Christmas tree year after year.

My daughter has begun collecting Our Generation doll’s and I love the wide variety of accessories and playsets available for them. Everything is just that much cuter in doll size! Continue reading “Christmas Holiday DIY Playset for 18 Inch Dolls”
Today I have a bit of a holiday mash-up with my DIY Christmas Lights Advent Calendar made from plastic Easter eggs! With only a few extra craft supplies, you’ll be able to create this fun countdown for the holiday season.
My daughter turned 6 at the end of May and we celebrated at home with an Equestria Girls themed dance party. Keira had a My Little Pony themed party for her 4th birthday, so I will admit I was a bit disappointed when she asked me to plan another Pony themed party. Luckily I am not good at getting rid of things so I still had all the decorations from that party and was able to re-vamp a lot of the same ideas to make things feel new and exciting.
Keira loves singing and dancing, and a big part of why she loves the Equestria Girls is the music. I have downloaded a couple of the soundtracks and even find myself singing along to the catchy tunes when I am alone in the car. It only seemed natural to give the party theme and decorations a music themed spin.
Summer is fast upon us and one thing I want to work on during the break from school is the kids reading. They both love the routine we have gotten into of us reading to them each night, but I also want to help encourage their own reading progress. I have ordered some beginning levelled readers for my daughter and a few new chapter books that I thought would interest my son, then came up with a fun reward system that has them excited to read daily.
In January I posted about the calendar sticker system we have implemented to reward our kids for good behaviour and help them save money for our November trip to Walt Disney World. I have begun paying the kids out monthly and wanted a cute place for them to start saving their money. I am proud to share these Mickey and Minnie savings jars I came up with!
Somewhere between having 2 kids and becoming a stay at home mom, I became a coffee drinker. I managed to make it through 4 years of university without touching a cup of coffee, but the sleepless nights with newborns and long days with toddlers quickly turned it into my preferred form of caffeine.
