The Monster Makeover has begun! I’m redoing my boys room with monsters, and the main attraction will be these fantastic monster paintings/portraits. Love. Them. I bought the Bump in the Night Cricut Lite cartridge specifically for this project, and look at all these great monsters! Boys stuff is getting better everyday, yes? This project is […]

For the first time in my 28 years, I am excited about Halloween and the month of October in general. My change of heart all started with a little prodding from the kids to make our house a bit more festive “like the neighbors”. Since I was just warming up to the whole Halloween thing, […]

I have been really trying to make the most of our quiet mornings with Elliot gone to kindergarten and give Gus some one-on-one time AND some preschool activities. So we are now charting the weather AND learning the days of the week. Making a weather chart is so easy and there are tons of different ways […]

I spied some Fruit of the Loom cotton t-shirts at Walmart the other day for $2 so I snatched a few to liven up for Elliot. You just can’t beat $2, and sometimes I like a plain shirt in need of livening. I get so tired of all the name brands plastered all over everything […]

Almost a year later I am still in love with the wall decor in Linus’ room. I’d like to add a few more frames and icons eventually, but for now it’s perfect. I found frames at a thrift store, spray painted them green, and hung them without the glass framing some white vinyl Cricut images. […]

For Elliot’s birthday last month we got him some more Quadrilla marble run pieces and a new scooter.

Here’s what you’ll need: cardstock envelopes Cricut or […]

2011 was a busy year. Here are some of my favorite projects and tutorials from last year:                                                                             […]

I use my Cricut all the time to cut fabric for applique – mostly onesies and towels but also buntings and I may even do a quilt in the near future. I did this towel for a Christmas present and cut out the flower and name with my Cricut and it was so fast and […]

Pin It Remember my first chore chart from a few weeks ago? I figured out something better. I realized that I needed to somehow separate the chores into daily and weekly and have a few more for them to do each day. My boys have been pretty naughty lately, and I’m hoping a little more […]

Pin It I am not good at chores. Or getting my kids to do chores… But I think these charts will help remind us and make it kind of fun (at least at first…). I’ve seen tons of chore chart ideas on Pinterest (like this one that inspired mine) and almost bought the makings for […]
