My front door area was pretty gross… and I had ignored it for months. I FINALLY did a serious deep clean, and the difference is staggering!
Life can get in the way of decorating sometimes, but decorating with family photos can be a simple and achievable way to add some warmth and enjoyability!
This is the easiest ever balloon party garland! Make strands of balloons & easy balloon bunches for decorating birthday parties, baby showers, and more.
It can be tough to move into a rental home – a blank slate – and not be able to change much. But here’s how to make a rental feel like HOME.
I let the water beads grow to their full potential over about 6 hours, then stirred in a few drops of lemon essential oil and eucalyptus essential oil. In no time, the kids were breathing clearly and feeling much better. Plus, they were having lots of fun, of course!
And each of my kids got a little costume starter too. Joseph’s crocodile hat is so adorable… I’m not a huge fan of masks because they make you breathe in all their nasty fumes, get damp from the condensation of your breath, and limit your visibility… so this hat was perfect. All I would need to do to complete the costume is dress him in green from head to toe, and make him a simple crocodile tail.
Even though I pinned tutorials for this before, I didn’t reference them, because how hard could it be? That’s why this isn’t a tutorial. You don’t need one.

Since I live WAYYYYY over in California, while most of my family is in South Carolina, my relatives don’t see my house much. Now and then, I like to share some pictures that just show how our house is arranged and decorated, so that my family and friends far away can have a better picture
I’ve had the Montessori baby room tour linked in the sidebar of the blog for…forever. But we haven’t even been living in that house for the last year and a half! And lots of things have changed with Anneliese’s room. Plus, she’s a toddler now, not a tiny baby. This weekend, my husband and his
