Tiered Planter

Before moving I gave away quite a few of our in door plants.  Since we were moving so far I didn't want to worry about them moving, spilling or dying during the move. So when we got up to Washington I had to start collecting them again. Along with those plants I gave away their containers though! Time to make a few more!!  Last year I posted a diy on making a hanging planter to expand on that planter this year I wanted to share how to make a 3 tiered planter. A great way to show off all of...

DIY Fun Fabric Banner

When we moved up to Washington I decided to change a lot of the decor in Mae's room! Some of it she had outgrown and some just looked better with her old peach walls and not so great on the new white one.  Since we are renting I couldn't do anything permanent to the walls so I made a few  new wall hangings. One of my favorites and a fun little project was the fabric banner. It nice because you can customize it completely, from the size to the saying, to the colors. It can be a completely unique piece...

Play Makeup

I just love when I walk into the bathroom and there is colored powder everywhere, black gunk smeared and a little girl covered in colored dust. Mae has hit the age where she likes to copy everything I do! SO CUTE and so annoying at the same time! She is very curious about what Gabe and I do and she want to do it too. Especially when it comes to mommy and her makeup. You would think I would have learned but if I leave anything out on the sink by accident Mae will find it and will cover herself...

Kids Stroller Upcycle

While unpacking the house they came across Mae’s old stroller and she was obsessed she pushed it all around the house everywhere she could go, but it was very difficult considering how short she is and how tall it was. I decided to check out the local Goodwill the other day and I came across a stroller for two dollars I grabbed it right away. The seat was ripped so I knew I would have to see a new one but that wouldn’t be too hard.  Luckily I already had some fabric and spray paint at home so I just...

DIY Height Ruler

When I was putting together Mae’s Nursery I loved to explore Hobby Lobby to check out there nursery décor. They always had things I want to buy so idea that I could make!
