No-Sew DIY Superhero Costume

p>It's almost Halloween, and although the stores are running low on kids' costumes, don't worry -- you're in luck. This no-sew DIY superhero costume is the easiest thing in the world to make, I promise you that much! I love DIY projects, but I'll have to be honest with you, I am not that comfortable with a sewing machine. I'd call myself a novice at the very least.

Realizations During Mom's Night Out: Who I Am as a Mom

Last week I set out to plan an evening with my mommy-friends. One of them emailed the rest of us suggesting a night out of town with dinner, drinks, and if we were feeling a little crazy, maybe even some dancing!

How to Throw an Owl Themed Birthday Party

If it weren’t for his love for owls, our Camp Mommawatchi “Momma Owl” might be something entirely different today. His passion for owls made me become a fan, too!INVITATION – I designed this on the computer, printed it out and adhered it to brown cardstock. It says, “Who-hoo’s turning 3?” Then I list all the details and end with, “Come for dinner, cake and some owly fun!”...more
