Handmade Checkerboard

My kids love Melissa & Doug Wooden Toys.  They are such high quality toys and we always seem to ask for them for gifts.  Each of the sets come with a wood crate that stores the set.  While I love the crates they really could use a top on them in order to make it into our playroom (I am not a fan of pieces everywhere). So what has happened over the years of receiving Melissa & Doug toys is we have amassed a collection of these wood crates.

How to Make Feather Earrings

lI have a thing for earrings…big earrings actually.  It is an inherent degenerative gene passed down from my mother.  All those times I heard my mom say “Where are your earrings?” before I left the house, has made me a believer that earrings are a must accessory.  Last year I got these really pretty purple feather earrings from Jewel Mint.

DIY Tissue Paper Wreath

Birthdays can be expensive.  Finding cheap birthday decorations that are cute can often be challenging.  I created a wreath made out of the dollar store streamers and a STYROFOAM™ Brand Wreath.  The perfect part about this wreath is that you can remove the steamers after the party and use your wreath form again. Can you guess the theme of my daughter’s party by the colors of the wreath?  Bonus points for the those that are right.
