It doesn’t seem to matter how old my kids get, there is something alluring about sidewalk chalk.We found a way to make it even more exciting, and you can whip it up yourself from items you probably already have in the pantry. If not, they can be found at almost any grocery or dollar store. […]
Accent mirrors are such a pretty, modern touch to any room. They bring in more light, give the illusion of a bigger space, and add interest to a blank wall. I love the look of several mirrors of different shapes and sizes clustered together or mixed in among framed photos or artwork. The only problem […]
While browsing one of my favorite websites-Anthropologie-I came across these darling polka dotted glasses. I LOVE all things polka dot, and anytime I can incorporate them into my decor, I do. But nearly $60 for four glasses? I don’t think so. I have kids. And marble floors. That’s a really bad combo that means certain […]
Happy Earth Day, mommas! Today we celebrate Mother Earth and what better way to show mad respect for our planet, than a recycled craft for the garden. Mother’s Day is right around the corner, which in Colorado means the all-clear to plant flowers and veggies outdoors. But how to mark those little baby sprouts so […]

I’ve been knitting again. It’s super therapeutic for me. Watch some cheesy chick flick while knitting. Makes my stress melt away. My best friend Kate and I went to Fort Collins recently to visit The Loopy Ewe and My Sister Knits. The first is yarn heaven as it has aisles and aisles of super yummy, soft, gorgeous […]

These are free patterns and all you have to do is sign up for their […]
Brady’s room has been all about dinosaurs since he was born. We have a jumbo dino rocking chair, a huge animatronic triceratops, pillows, stuffed animals, wall stickers and more. He had an adorable quilt from Pottery Barn Kids in his crib, but he’s outgrown that. It was a little too “newborn” and I wanted a quilt that could last him through to a twin bed. What’s a crafty mom to do? Well, make a quilt I guess.
