Easter Basket Ideas for 1-Year Old Girls

After having kids, something happened that made me absolutely love being the Easter bunny.  It’s like Santa Clause, only with not nearly as much stress, not nearly as much stuff, and instead of a pending winter once it’s over, SUMMER is right around the corner.

How to Make a DIY Train Ornament with Your Kids

Easy Train Ornaments to Make with Your Kids

Last year was the first time that my son was really, really into Christmas.  He was so excited for Santa, Christmas music, snow, setting up our Christmas tree, and of course all of the gifts associated with the holiday.  And if you know us at all, then you probably know that also means incorporating trains into EVERYTHING.  The polar express, train cookies, trains as gifts, and the most fun of all – DIY train ornaments!

I will admit, I initially went searching to find an easy train ornament tutorial somewhere, but to my surprise I found nothing.  So I had to come up with this on my own and luckily it turned out great!  It was simple, my son was able to take part in every single step, and we were able to make enough for the whole family to receive at least one.

How to Turn Old Christmas Cards into Forever Keepsakes

How to Turn Old Christmas Cards into Keepsake Magnets

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is opening up Christmas cards from family and friends…especially the photo ones!

So each and every year I am twisted apart trying to figure out what to do with them when the holiday season ends.  Throwing them away seems awful, saving them seems pointless.

So I end up making a choice – some stay on the fridge permanently, some sadly head to the trash.

Until this year.

Finally, I came up with a way to not only save them, but actually give them a practical purpose!

Ready for it???
