DIY 2020 Christmas ornament

I went to Target early this morning to get a few last minute things for our girls. On my list was to check out the ornaments that they had left. Every year, we all buy an ornament to add to our tree. Needless to say, the Christmas section was pretty much wiped clean and the ornaments that were left were not cute, expensive, and irrelevant to this year. So I decided that I wanted to make a custom ornament that[Read more]

DIY Christmas card

The girls and I wanted to make some quick Christmas cards to give with the cookies we made yesterday. We got some scrap book pages from the library last week for a craft that we had leftover. We found the perfect way to use them! These scrap book page Christmas tree cards were simple to make and very easy for my 4 and 6 year old to help with. My 6 year old was able to do everything on her[Read more]

No bake chocolate dipped Christmas desserts

Today the girls and I were able to make some Christmas “cookies” without doing any baking whatsoever! I’ve recently been into doing chocolate dipped cookies and pretzels for any of my kids parties. They are an easy and cute party favor to hand out to guests. I thought it would be a great idea to do these with Christmas desserts.

Chimney ornament Christmas Craft for kids

The girls and I wanted to do a little something for our neighbors this Christmas. We love our neighbors, they have been so welcoming to us in the past year and a half that we have been here.

The girls wanted to make these[Read more]

3 Reasons Why I love teaching with Gogokid

      I have been teaching with Gogokid for a little over two weeks now and I am absolutely loving it. I have seen companies like Gogokid for a while now and always filed them in the back of my mind for future reference. I have been interested in online jobs since I became a stay at home mom but I have just been so unsure about them or just thought “I would never be hired for a job like[Read more]

5 Activities For Indoor Play

As a stay at home mama to 2 energetic little girls, sometimes my internal battle is: should I just let the kids binge watch Netflix all day? Or should we actually do something productive to stimulate their little minds? I can proudly say that we save those Netflix binge days for sick days or “mental health” recharge days for mama. Haha Sometimes being at home with young kids all day, who need that sensory stimulation, can be exhausting. And sometimes[Read more]

5 essentials for a functional entryway

  When we moved into our home, I knew the one thing that I needed to create in our space was an entryway. I love functionality in a home, and an entryway serves that specific purpose. We have lived in our small home for 4 years now and I just now feel that our entryway is serving its functional purpose. It took me a while to figure it out! Haha but now when we walk into our home, everything doesn’t[Read more]

DIY entryway hook station

We have been doing some home improvement projects in our house over the past couple of months. Well, really this past year! Haha somehow it feels like our house is a never ending project, but that’s okay because that’s just how I like it. We really have been redoing the whole of the living room, so because of that our entryway area was in shambles. Previously, I had a large shelf with hooks in our entryway which I loved. But[Read more]

DIY Halloween Teacher Appreciation Gift

Our oldest started a 2 day a week preschool program this fall, so as you can imagine we are experiencing a full round of firsts this year. It’s her first time being away from me during the day for more than a couple of hours in the care of someone other than family. Her first time eating lunch away from mama. The first time she tries to take a nap somewhere else other than home without mama there. And her[Read more]
