You probably know at least one children that has a food allergy of some sort. All three of my kids are allergic to milk and it’s often difficult to find meals for them when we are away from home. Fortunately they are not as severely allergic as they could be and do not require any medication.
When I was told that my daughter’s school was “nut free” I wasn’t shocked. In fact, the entire district and most of the schools in…

After viewing Beth's cute Father's Day gift, I wanted to share mine too! This year we made a very simple and easy project. I bought a blank art canvas and some scrapbook letters then let the kids use their Crayola Kid' Paint to make their dad a picture. Once the paint was dry I added the letters to spell out Happy Father's Day and also added…Continue

With each child I was given a ton of baby products as gifts. I still have some that I received from my first baby shower over 5 years ago! Here are a few suggestions on how to re-purpose these items.…Continue

This weekend my daughter and I wanted to try something new. I've made a few tutu for her in the past but the outcome is always the same....she's excited at first, puts it on immediately and then ten minutes later she takes it off because it's scratchy. I tried to find another fun playtime dress up option that I could make and have seen the skirts made from fabric scraps. However, I hesitated to make one because I kept imagining with…Continue

I had seen a article about making your own laundry detergent and it got me thinking, Can I really do that? It sounded like a dream when it came to how much money I could save.

But after some research I found that there were several people who switched to homemade detergent because of their skin allergies. I decided to give it a try and so far, I am very happy with the results! Together…Continue

When I came across this ornament on the FamilyFun website and I just had to share it. I thought it was such a great idea for the kids (or the whole family) to do each year as a keepsake instead of purchasing a yearly ornament. If you have multiple kids you can make each one unqiue by assigning a color for the spool or ribbon.…

When I was putting together a post about DIY beauty I started looking around on the web and found so many ideas and recipes that I…
