No matter where you live, you know it’s winter when you reach the season of perpetual runny noses. Preschool is a petri dish. My three year old, Blake is always patient zero- the epicenter of all things germy. Therefore, winter is the season of surprise sick days at home with mom. But there is something about using a bath as a temporary fix to make everything a little bit better.

Kayla has a new room! A bedroom makeover for Kayla has been at the top of my to do list for quite some time. At 9, she’s on her way to the tween Iife, so I wanted to give her something slightly sophisticated and filled with fun.
It goes without saying, that nearly all of my home projects have been on hold this past year. With time to reflect on what my priorities are for myself and our family, I kept coming back to the same two things.

Make my I’d Pick You nose valentine printable. These nose pencil sharpener valentines are food free and perfect for grade school valentine exchanges.
Sometimes you need a good laugh! With most schools banning food related valentines, we parents have to get a little creative. And if we’re skipping the sweet treats, we might as well up the fun factor, right? My I’d Pick You Again and Again printable valentines are pretty much guaranteed to produce giggles and loud declarations of EWWWW!
It is no secret that I love making food free valentines for kids. These days, most schools don’t allow candy or other food valentines. But my You Are Better Than Chocolate valentines are about as close as you can come to the real thing!
Cancer is tough, but you are tougher. Thanks to Walgreens and SheKnows Media for sponsoring this post.
One of the biggest things cancer has taught me is that you’re not alone. Even in the moments that feel like it. Even if you’re in isolation, separated from the ones you love the most there is an army of both familiar faces and perfect strangers there ready to help. It takes a village, they say. I’m here to tell you that your village is larger than you think.
Make my holiday surprise bags for a special meal or party! They’re like custom party crackers except you have far more freedom as to what you can put in. The best part? These holiday surprise bags are the perfect project to do with your kids and they open with a POP!
For me, the holidays are all about being hands on. They’re a chance to get more quality time with my kids and of course to do a craft project or two…or five. At the ripe old age of three, Blake has already embraced my love of scissors and twine. Meanwhile, Kayla at eight loves wrapping gifts and making holiday magic for others.
