Bake Your Own Minecraft Cake

Bake Your Own Minecraft Cake

When I was putting ideas together for Luca’s Minecraft birthday party, I showed him my Pinterest board to ask what his opinion on an appropriate cake would be.  There were sheet cakes decorated to look like a Creeper face.  There were massive cake cubes tiled with various pixels of brown and green to look like […]

How to Create an Epic Minecraft Birthday Party, the Multicraftual Way

How to Create an Epic Minecraft Birthday Party, the Multicraftual Way

My kid is obsessed with Minecraft.  Maybe you can relate?  He asks to play Minecraft frequently.  He wants to watch YouTube videos about how to craft new things in Minecraft.  He wants to play Minecraft Story Mode on our tablet, he wants to constantly talk about Minecraft…he even LARPS Minecraft when we send him outside […]

Craft a Creeper

Craft a Creeper

For Luca’s Minecraft-themed 6th Birthday Party, we were looking for something that could double as an activity and a decoration.  I wasn’t finding a lot of simple ideas on Pinterest that didn’t require lots of supplies or prep time, so when this idea for creating a Creeper struck me, I knew it was exactly what […]

DIY Pretend Play Kitchen Update

DIY Pretend Play Kitchen Update

A couple of months ago I posted about how the pretend play kitchen in our house sees a lot of action.  Isla (15 months old now) LOVES to pretend she owns a tea shop!  She dunks the ‘tea bags’ in the cups, she adds the sugar cubes, she stirs and stirs and then delivers the […]

The Great Bedroom Makeover Pt 3–My Recipe for Chalk Paint

The Great Bedroom Makeover Pt 3–My Recipe for Chalk Paint

 I’m pretty new to the chalk painting revolution, but I’ve mixed up my fair share of recipes and have developed a blend that I think gives a great finish and is easy to apply. Before taking March off from blogging, I had shared my plans for redecorating the kiddo’s bedrooms.  I’ve been plugging along and […]

The Great Bedroom Makeover Part 2–Bedside Tables and Decor

I introduced my big project for the year a couple of weeks ago in this post.  In a nutshell, I’m updating both of the kiddo’s bedrooms and my deadline is whenever Isla starts crawling out of her crib. I’m starting early, so I can work a little bit at a time on these projects and […]

Creative Corner–DIY Frog Funny Valentines

Creative Corner–DIY Frog Funny Valentines

This year I wanted to do something a little extra special for Luca’s Valentines to share at school.  His class only has 6 students, so it was the perfect year to go a little overboard. At a recent trip to Ikea, I found these adorable finger puppets for 99 cents each.  I thought the Frog […]

Greeting Card Organization Tutorial, Or How to Never Buy a Belated Birthday Card Again!

Greeting Card Organization Tutorial, Or How to Never Buy a Belated Birthday Card Again!

I have a confession to make…sending out greeting cards hasn’t always been my favorite thing.  While I’m typically a very organized person, this one task used to always get the best of me.  I’d forget to buy the cards…if I bought them, I’d forget I’d done so and didn’t get them mailed out in time.  […]

Creative Corner–DIY Terrarium

Creative Corner–DIY Terrarium

Luca received a really fun DIY Terrarium kit for Christmas from our cousin Salina’s shop Fresh Digs.  The kit included a plastic screw top jar with everything he’d need to create his own dinosaur terrarium.  There was a link to a great instructional video too. It was pretty straight forward–we layered all of the contents […]

DIY–Sachets…A Tutorial

I’m always looking for small hand made gifts to make around the holidays.  Just something sweet to tuck in to a gift for family and friends or something to strike just the right holiday note for an acquaintance or teacher–not too much and not too little. This year, the project that struck me as just […]
