Under the Sea Birthday Party

Hiiii! Here I am almost 3 months post-birthday, FINALLY sharing details from our Under the Sea party, haha. Better late than never? We were  so  unsure  what we wanted the theme of Gio & Gabi’s joint birthday party to be this year. (And by we, I mean me. Haha.) We considered a few different themes, but I fell […]

DIY Baby Gate

You guys. I got a chop saw! It was my Valentine’s Day present (ha!), & I LOVE IT. I used to saw my wood by hand (not fun) or go to Lowe’s with my meticulous cut list, hoping I wouldn’t need to make any adjustments along the way. Now that I have my own way to cut […]

How to Paint Kitchen Cabinets

Hi guys! I posted a before/after picture of our newly painted kitchen cabinets on Facebook & had some questions on how we did it, how long it took, etc. so here’s the post with all the details! I’ve done plenty of painting jobs before but considering this was in our kitchen & not a beat […]

DIY PHOTO CANVAS

I wanted to make a gallery wall of photo canvases, but for the sizes I wanted it would cost close to $200… per canvas. Yikes! I did a little research & saw how easy it was to create your own with almost the same effect. I spent about $50 on these, between the canvases (1/2 off […]

DIY RAINBOW PASTA

This was such an easy DIY & Giovanni LOVED it! It was so fun to watch him explore the pasta in our sensory bin & it was actually a lot less messy than I thought it would be. I’ll jump right into how we made it :) What I used: Pasta noodles ( 2 boxes) […]

OUR DIY HOLIDAY PHOTO SET UP + TIPS FOR BETTER PHOTOS!

Usually I love taking photos in natural settings. Outdoors, simple, unposed… you know, like you aren’t “trying so hard.” But for a holiday photo, I decided to have some fun with it! I had it in my head that Gio could be playing in a “snow scene” in his jammies. I figured I had most of the elements […]

DIY ORNAMENT WREATH

I’ve been experimenting with mixed metals in Christmas decor this year & what better way than with a DIY ornament wreath? All you need for this project is: A wreath frame- $2.99 for the 12″ size Fabric (if you get a metal frame like I did) Hot glue/gun Different sized/colored ornaments. I got 1 box […]

DIY PLAY GRILL!

All of my DIY posts begin the same. “I was on Pinterest…” haha, & I came across a play grill that I knew Giovanni would LOVE! It was repurposed from an old table & I immediately began looking for a DIY tutorial online. I looked & looked & found NOTHING where people built theirs from scratch. I had […]

DIY FELT BOARD & FELT FARM ANIMALS!

How cute is this felt farm?! Giovanni LOVES animals, so I figured he would love this activity. Turns out he just loves making each animal sound as he pulls it off the board & throws it onto the floor… haha. He does love the tractor but he’s not quite in that “imaginative stage” yet where he’s […]

RAINBOW RICE WITHOUT VINEGAR!

I’ve been wanting to make this with Gio for a few weeks now & I kept putting it off because we’ve been doing other projects. This morning I saw the bag of rice & said, “Ok, we’re doing it!” Look how cool it looks!!! \ I made our DIY rainbow rice with no vinegar. Not quite sure why people even use vinegar in […]
