I love making Sharpie Mugs! They’re simple, oh so cute, and completely customizable. Handlettering isn’t a skill everyone has or enjoys, but I love it. I find new fonts to try and add to a new painting or a Sharpie mug when I’m bored. Usually, I avoid drawing on mugs. Mistakes are much easier to […]
Whether it’s Christmas, Birthday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or Grandparent’s Day, there isn’t a care-giver in the world that wouldn’t love a hand-made gift from your child. What would make it twice as nice? A kid-made gift, personalized with a name or initials!
I’ve found a few ideas for personalized kid-made gifts and divided it by age.
Nature walks with Roo have been one of our favorite activities together. She calls it “esploring.” It’s amazing how a little exercise and fresh air lifts both of our moods.

It was time for pacifier weaning. The Paci had to go. We were all dreading it. Me most of all. But I set the cut off to 3 years old and I was determined to stick with it…The important thing to remember is this did not happen all of a sudden. I spent at least three months preparing my daughter for the separation…
Each item is color coded with tabs so I can flip to them easily. The post it notes and banners have been used for information that changes. For example, my cleaning schedule includes when I last did things like bathed the dog or changed the sheets. The post it banner holds that date and can be replaced when I do it next.
I’m having a blast staying organized with all aspects of my life in one little bundle! Back to school was a perfect time for me to begin this.
Have you heard of Story Stones? They’ve been popping up in my Pinterest for a while now. I love that it promotes imaginative play and early literacy! So, during our quick trip to visit family, I insisted we make a stop at a river. Roo and Daddy played in the water, and I collected stones; […]
