Fun With The Littles @ Lowe’s Build & Grow

As a SAHM, I am always looking for ways to have fun on the cheap.  In this search I discovered a great blog called Indy With Kids. They share so many great free/cheap events that happen in and around Indianapolis.   That’s where I learned about the Lowe’s Build & Grow program.  On some Saturday mornings they offer a free [...]

Unicorns and Rainbows…in CAKE of course!

Every Girl’s Dream   Rainbows, Unicorns, Hearts and Bows, oh my. I recently made a cake for a 5th birthday. The theme was Unicorns. I had creative control on the cake, and was presented with the party decorations, as well as the dress material. I then came up with this cake, from those inspirations.

DIY: On the Go Play-Set

As we sat in a restaurant last night with our almost 3 year old and 16 month old, I was reminded how I could really use something to keep these boys occupied while we wait for food. The youngest is at the stage that he’s throwing everything on the floor when he’s done, so needless to say we made friends with (they may choose different [...]

I’m TOTALLY making this!

This may be the coolest thing I’ve ever seen!

I’m in Puzzle Heaven!

The WHY My 2 year old LOVES to do puzzles.  Most of his are in the 25 piece range and are hard board.  On a normal day I find 5 of these puzzles out and mixed together on the floor of his room.  We’d then spend a lot of time sorting and putting away these puzzles.  Putting away I use lightly, none of them had boxes or containers.  My [...]

Sesame Street Birthday!

My son turned one recently and so we of course had a party.  I chose to go with a Sesame Street theme because I thought that would be fun.  Oh, and I saw someone challenge someone to make a cake of Mr. Hooper’s Store, so I wanted to accept that challenge.   I, being obsessed with crafting and the crack that is Pinterest, had to make [...]

Giant Ruler Growth Chart – DIY

So when we moved into our house in the garage on the wall is where the family before us marked the growth of their children.  When re-painting the garage, it gave me a sad feeling that the history on the wall was about to disappear forever.   It made me hope that they had gotten some good photos of it to save forever. A few months later, our [...]
