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 [...]

Chocolate Covered Cheerios? Yes. Please!

Do you love chocolate?   If you answered no, just stop reading now and go away.  You are not welcome here. I love chocolate, I love treats and quick snacks, and so does my little one, so we experiment from time to time.  He LOVES to wear his apron and ‘help mommy’…tell me you could say no to that face… So, one day we [...]

Yee Haw…Look Who’s One!

I was recently hired to do a cowboy themed 1st birthday cake.  I sent several ideas with quotes to the customer and she picked a cow print with a cowboy hat on top.  The had turned out a little bigger than I had planned, but other than that, I think it turned out pretty good.  I put his name and a 1 from gumpaste.  The cake is covered in [...]

Toddler Sized Thank-You!

Now that I’m a stay at home mom I’ve found that I actually have time to send those thank-you notes that I always want to send but somehow usually put off until it’s so late the person probably wouldn’t even remember why I was thanking them in the first place.   So with this new-found time, I thought Jackson was old enough to make his own [...]

Kid Sized Chores

So I have a little one who is 2.5 years old and I figured it was time to get him introduced to chores; that IS why I had him.  I wanted to make him a kid friendly chore chart to make his daily chores more fun.  I originally thought I’d start from scratch, since I am a graphic designer and all, but decided why waste the time when certainly [...]

Hello Indianapolis!! I’m So Glad to Be Here Tonight!!

So with news of Hayden due to arrive in 9 months, it was time to start on Jackson’s new, big boy room.  At 18 months he was moving out of his crib and into his new room to make way for his little brother. 18 months is a tough age to decide what to make his room when going for a whole theme.  Looking back now that he’s 28 months, I think I [...]

Welcome to the Jungle Baby

Baby:  Jungle Nursery This room was created 2.5 years ago before my first son, Jackson, was born.  We bought our first house in May of 2010 and Jackson was born in August.  It was the first room we painted in our all white home.  I wanted to have it done in time for the baby of course.  We didn’t find out the gender so we wanted a neutral [...]

It’s my room!

{DIY} or {BUY} – make your own, or buy one from me… We recently painted and re-decorated our entryway and stairway.  One of my craft projects for this change was to make name plates for the boys doors.  Below you will see photos of what I created as well as links to purchase any supplies you would need to create this craft [...]
