Recycled Plant Cozy Tutorial

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tom’s of Maine. All opinions are 100% mine. There is a long list of reasons why I love the month of April. Near the top of that list is the start of growing season and Earth Day, which go hand in hand quite perfectly. Kind of like the components of today’s project. I’ve teamed up with an appropriately Earth friendly brand,

Getaway to Holden Beach

We had the most fabulous little stay at Holden Beach, NC recently, and I thought I would share a few snapshots. I’m so sad I didn’t take more pictures, but we really did just disconnect from the world and connect with our friends. So maybe I’m not so sad after all 😉 It was our […]

Sponsor Feature: Rustic Gem Jewelry

At each and every bra workshop, details count. Details, details, details. The fabric and trims, the food, the decor – I try as much as I can to have it all “go”. Included in that are the goody bags. No party – and my workshops ARE a party – would be complete without a goody bag. Amirite or amirite?

Easter in Pictures

I hope you had a wonderful Easter! I look forward to this weekend every year, and the joy and hope that it brings. It’s funny how having a baby makes you look at things, like holidays, a lot differently. I found myself super conflicted over the easter bunny this year, and we ended up not […]

What Every New Mom Really Needs

I’ve teamed up with my friends over at Terminix today to talk about motherhood, specifically those days and weeks right after baby is born. It’s something that I don’t think gets talked about enough, which in turn can leave many moms feeling down, lonely, and overwhelmed. Fortunately, I had a really lovely postpartum recovery period with Piper […]

LBB: Little Black Bra

While the fun in fashion comes from taking style risks, I’m the type of person who always goes back to black. Have you ever noticed that most of my me-made lingerie is black, white or cream? I’ve thrown in a burnt orange bodysuit here and a blush pink set there to add some flavor to my lingerie

MOUTH WATERING MIRO

Piper at 15 Months

It’s amazing how much Piper has grown and changed in just the last few months. Her vocabulary has expanded tremendously, and she is communicating more and more. She signs milk, all done, please, dog, and more. She says mama, dada, thank you, papa, naenae (aka “grandma”), ball, baby, night night, hi, bye, dog, uh-oh and […]

Choosing A School For My Food Allergy Child

I was a nineties kid. Most of my schooling years transpired during the time of Lisa Frank lunch boxes, pogs, Pokémon, and No Fear shirts, when food allergies were almost unheard of and homeschooling was largely stigmatized. Fast forward about twenty years. Kids are dabbing, snapping, and Pokémon is a thing (again?!). I also have three kids; one in middle school, one in elementary school, and one in preschool. For National School

No-Sew T-Shirt Produce Bag

Got some old T-shirts lying around? Make a produce bag! You’re reducing your carbon footprint and recycling all in one step. This is a really simple project that only takes three things: a T-shirt, sharp scissors, and some Liquid Stitch fabric glue. Easy! I originally shared this project as a sewing project.

Framed Family Home Evening Board

One thing we have resolved to be better at as a family this year is planned family nights. In our church, strengthening families is paramount, so we are asked to have one night a week dedicated to our families called Family Home Evening. So far, we’ve mostly been reteaching a lesson we had in church on Sunday, and playing a board game while we munch on mini marshmallows because we

Piper’s First Birthday

One thing I do not think I will ever master is baking cakes. I can’t tell you how many cakes I have tried to make, and how many of them have turned out bad. Okay I can… all of them! The taste of this was wasn’t terrible, but of course I underestimated the amount of […]

Christmas Around Our Home

I seem to decorate a little more for Christmas every year. Our first year of marriage consisted of a tiny little Christmas tree in a tiny studio apartment. We used balls of yarn as ornaments, an old suitcase as our tree stand, and wrapped our gifts in brown paper. It was simple, much like our […]

STAYING WARM DURING MY WORKOUTS!

HI DARLINGS! I know I tend to get a little lazier with my workouts during the holidays so this year I was determined to stay on track. I have lost a healthy 14lbs in the last three months, and I certainly don’t want to fall back into my old habits. I will admit that going […]
