Wall Candy

Am I the only one that has cabin fever and wants to start redecorating? My daughter is almost 5 and is letting me know her design desires each day. My son is almost 3 and needs to move out of baby into full toddler room and these fantastic removable wall stickies are giving me some great ideas.

Nie Nie is coming back!

The wait is almost over! Nie will be back to
blogging tomorrow, Friday 16th. If you do not know
about Nie, read this and more on her blog and
you see why to be excited about her return.

Clearing the Clutter

One of my resolutions from last year that was not successfully accomplished was that of 'Clearing the Clutter'. I am always trying to be organized yet I never feel organized because there is too much clutter (I have too many 'hiding spots'). I have been working on a plan the past few days and look what came in my email box? An email from My Home Ideas about daily tips to clear the clutter. Start now.

Homemade Headbands - a lovely mother daughter craft

My daughter is all into being a girlie-girl (but loves hiking and tools) and looking 'fancy' some days so after we saw this post on Design Mom, we went right to the store and got to crafting. She also had her first slumber party coming and wanted to make one for the birthday girl. Now we are planning another trip to the store and have many design ideas.

In case you were wondering about the sleepover: I made it. barely. little sleep. My baby spent her first night over a friend's house. I missed her so much. So proud of her. Breath deeply Mom.
The headbands were a hit.

Pretty Little Things make me say 'Oh Happy Day'

Have you been to 'Oh Happy Day'? If not, you are a part of only a handful of folks who are not fans-go there right now. At any rate, a few months back, Jordan started the 'Pretty Little Things Club' (PLT). You could either purchase a 6 or 12 month subscription via her Etsy store. Basically, every month, she sends you a pretty little thing. I have had so much fun, bouncing like a little girl on her birthday each time the lovely package comes. Below is the 'PLT' for January.

Valentine's Cards & Crafts

This year I will have my 4 year old make Valentine's cards for her friends. I have been looking for some ideas and found some great ones. The great part of the butterfly is that you are also giving a piece of candy and we love to go visit our downtown candy store. For my son, maybe we will print some and have him 'sign' them.

My kids, as most, love to do crafts and there is nothing like glue sticks and crinkling up paper so this looks like a great option.
I will be giving my children and hubby some vintage inspired cards-I love the vintage feel. Are you making cards/crafts for to give or put up in your home? If so, what are some of your resources/ideas?
