FREE Valentine’s Day Printable

Happy Almost Valentine’s Day! We’ve had a crazy start to our year so I haven’t blogged at ALL but I’m hoping that will change soon– things are fiiiiinally starting to settle down. Sort of. Haha. (Does life ever really slow down?) With Valentine’s Day right around the corner I wanted to create a free printable […]

MASON JAR GIFT IDEAS

I can’t believe it’s that time of year again! It snowed for the first time here in North Chicago & it’s officially feeling like Christmas time. It inspired me to put together a post with some holiday gift ideas– this time it’s in the form of Mason Jar Gifts. How CUTE are these?!? Seriously, you guys. […]

NO COOK PLAY DOUGH

Giovanni loves sensory play. I built him a sensory table last year that we use almost every single day! Out of nowhere he asked if we could play with some “pay dough.” He loves cooking/baking with me so I knew he would love making the play dough, too. I used my tried & true “No Cook […]

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 […]

NURSE GIFTS FOR LABOR & DELIVERY

Last week I shared What’s in My Hospital Bag for Baby #2…. (Btdubs I can’t believe it’s almost baby time! What!?!?) I put together some gifts for the nurses & staff during our stay at the hospital. It’s a small way to say thanks & it doesn’t hurt to butter them up a bit either […]

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 […]

DIY OWL COSTUME

Happy Owl-o-ween! Haha. We thought we had our Halloween costume planned out months ago, but since Florida thinks it’s still summer we had to be a little creative & not do something that was a full body outfit. The hood & cape are both detachable by snaps so the onesie can be easily worn without […]
