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...

Last Minute Felt Pumpkin Candy Bag

With Halloween less than a week away I realized I still needed a candy bag for Mae. Not that she eats candy, but I definitely do! I remembered seeing a cute one on Pottery Barn Kid's site. However it was a little to late to order one and I did not really feel like paying that much when I knew I could make it for much less.     This is such a fun project you could make anything you like, a cat, ghost, or even Frankenstein. Whatever compliments your child's costume! The total cost was less then $5!  ...

SPOOKY TODDLER WITCH COSTUME

I am so excited for Halloween this year, it is fun every year, but Mae is turning 2 and will actually understand a little bit! Last year I made Mae a black cat costume (which was absolutely adorable!) This year we decided she would be a witch. Of course I couldn't buy one I HAD to make it. I love making costumes because you are able to customize them completely. For instance since we are no longer in Arizona, Halloween will be much cooler (at least for us) so I decided to go with a black velvet material which I...

It turned out so adorable and was a perfect spot for pictures....
