DIY Reading Nook: how to turn your wagon into a reading corner

Remember that awesome Touring Wagon we got from Step2 (as a Test Drive Blogger)? It has been wonderful all summer for walks around the neighborhood, to the park, and even this fall at the apple orchard. Well, in the Midwest, fall brings cold weather and winter brings lots of snow. Wagons and other outdoor ride-on toys are stored away in the garage or basement until the season is over.

But not our Step2 wagon! We love it too much and I thought

Back-to-school with the Fellowes Saturn2 95 Laminator! (giveaway)

When I was a kid, I remember my mom had a little laminator for mini-sized projects. She was a teacher and I think maybe she used it for name tags. I used to draw pictures and laminate them… I used a lot as bookmarks! Now that I have two little ones of my own, I’m thrilled to have a laminator–and one that takes full-sized sheets of paper for more projects. I used to print or write so many things for Ryan and they could only be used once… we are having a blast with

DIY Letter Wreath Tutorial

I mentioned awhile ago that my girlfriends and I started a monthly Pinterest craft night… but OKAY, let’s all be honest here, we refer to it as our “Wine Club.” This month we didn’t even get around to the craft part of the night 😉 But when we DO make crafts, they’re pretty awesome… like this Letter Wreath!

There really isn’t a science to it… the four of us all showed up with different sized letters, twine of different thicknesses, and a variety of ribbon and

did someone say wine & crafts?

Let me just say I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo happy to be back home, near all our friends and family. It has helped so much, there’s so much more to do, and we get to spend more time with the people we love.

My girlfriends and I (a few that I have known since elementary school) have created a monthly wine & craft night. There are 6 of us and 4 of us have kids… ideally we get to leave the kids behind and we meet up to gossip chat, chug sip some wine, and make

Christmas Memories: 2012

I love the holiday season and getting the house all decorated and festive. I love the magic of Santa and counting down to Christmas with Ryan. I love hanging the stockings and filling them with goodies. I love reading The Night Before Christmas and leaving out homemade cookies and milk. I love creating memories with the family.

I want to share some of those memories with you… crafts we have made during the holiday season, Christmas decor and gift ideas involving the kids, and a way to document it all. (Some of these I

DIY kids ghost shirt for Halloween

Last year we made spider shirts for Halloween with Ryan’s handprints. He was so proud of that shirt and wanted to wear it all the time… it’s a little too small now so I wanted to make new ones. And now that we have child #2, I wanted her to make a shirt, too!

I couldn’t find plain orange shirts this year so I went with the black ones. Luckily they had Rebecca’s size, too (in the boys section). Hmm… what to put
