How To Create The Perfect Activity Box For Kids

I love being able to stay at home all day with my kids, but sometimes it is hard to entertain them all day. We play with toys, go on walks, play in the yard, and once we do all those things, they ask to watch TV. Don't get me wrong, I love TV, but once they watch one movie or show, it turns into two more. So I created what we call our "Activity Box." ...more

Wino! DIY Coaster Made From Wine Corks

Having a husband in the wine industry means we have A LOT of corks lying around. No, it's not from all the wine we drink (I promise), but it is pretty cool.

6 Hacks for Gift Wrapping

It doesn't take much time on Pinterest to find works of art when it comes to gift wrap. You'll see beautiful bows, magically coordinated papers, and perfectly folded corners. As much as I love to ogle these gorgeously wrapped presents, gifts look a little different under our tree. Family interests (superheroes, pirates, Tinkerbell) determine our paper choices, not the latest Pinterest trends. Our corners usually aren't perfect. And usually, we don't even have bows! ...more

Revamped and Restyled Retro Christmas Village

My mother recently gave me her old Christmas village. These little snow-capped ceramic homes decorated my parents' house all through my teenage years. My three-year-old son is slightly obsessed with the miniature "winter wonderland" displays at our local craft store, and Mom still had all the pieces of her village boxed up to pass on for Baxter to enjoy. The catch: I was not in love. I'm a Kitschmas kind of gal, and this village was way too traditional for my taste. Lucky for me, there is nothing a can of spray paint and some glitter can't fix. ...more

The Best Coloring Books for Grown-Ups

I remember when I was about 10 or so and I received a very grown-up coloring book and a brand new set of colored pencils. I was thrilled by both as coloring pencils were not something I had very often and the coloring book was extra cool because it only had an image on one side. To me, that was a sign of a grown-up coloring book and it was awesome. If you have a similar memory from your childhood, then this post is for you. Or, if you still love the smell of a brand new box of 64 Crayola Crayons. Or, if you love nothing better than a gorgeous box of brand new colored pencils or markers....more

5 Adorable DIY Ornament Ideas for Untraditional Christmas Trees

As someone with her own private tinsel tree forest, I tend to have a hard time finding Christmas ornaments that not only curl my kitsch-loving toes, but also match my colorful trees. Traditional ornaments just won't work on an eight-foot-tall, hot pink tree. ...more
