How to Make a Lego Table

I've been so concentrated on building the new house that I haven't done a project in a good long while. I finally have one for you today though! Last month Levi (my middle son) turned four. Four. I remember blogging his birth story like it was yesterday, and now he's my four-year-old middle son. Crazy. Anyway, I made him a Lego table … [Read more...]



Cowboy Bedroom REVEAL!

Today's a big day y'all, a big big day. Why? Because I finished the boy's room! This room makeover has been dragging on for many, many years. It's kinda embarrassing how long it has taken, but I have to remember that this isn't a TV show where room makeover take 30 minutes, or some awesome professional blog where things get done in a timely … [Read more...]



How to Make Book Slings

 If this sounds oddly familiar to you, it's because I've already done (and blogged about) this project. I made my first set of book slings a few years ago while pregnant with boy #2, but I'm going to throw it out there again since 98% of my current readers probably haven't seen that post. Plus these slings have been really great... I mean, we're … [Read more...]



Pac-Man Family – Easy Costume Idea

Pac-Man and our family have a long history together. To be more specific, Ms. Pac-Man and Adam have a deep and meaningful relationship that developed long before our own (and that's saying something, cause I nabbed him young). It's an ongoing love affair. When Adam and I stared dating in high school I had heard of and played Pac-Man, but really, … [Read more...]



The Rock Box

 Once upon a time there was a man who built a playset for his children. Upon completion of the playset he and his wife promised the children that they would turn the base of the playset into a sandbox. Many months passed, but the promise was never fulfilled. The boy was very sad. Then one day the boy's mother noticed a slight nip in the air. … [Read more...]



Poured Paint Pots

Today I have a super easy project for y'all....so easy, in fact, that you should round-up your kids and have them help you. They will love it. Not that I let mine help... I waited till they were napping to do this, haha. I'm not crazy after all.  Also, I am giving away a $250 Home Depot gift card! If any of you are at Home Depot half as much as I … [Read more...]



DIY Playset and Staining with Flood Wood

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Flood® Wood Care for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Those of you looking for more progress on our bathroom remodel are going to be disappointed. I'm not that far along yet...  how about a playset reveal instead? As you may or may not know, we had been talking about building/buying … [Read more...]



Kids Step Stool (with Yardstick Steps)

I do projects around here when there is a need. Or a want, wants are project-worthy too. In this particular case I needed Elijah (who's in full potty training mode) to be able to turn on the bathroom light by himself. Enter - the need for a step stool. Or the want, cause I don't want to stop what I'm doing every twenty minutes to turn the lights on … [Read more...]



Yardstick Framed Kid Art

Happy Friday! I had fully intended to post three easy projects this week, but then Friday was here and I hadn't blogged about anything. Ahh, life. It happens. So I'm in the process of decorating my new kitchen shelving and have been doing lots of small projects for them.  This particular project started when I was cleaning out my craft … [Read more...]



Custom Name Growth Charts

I'm back, and I actually finished a project! Did you think I was going to leave you hanging till after Christmas? I thought about it... December has been a hard month so far, it feels like one or both of the kids has been sick the whole month. Just this morning Elijah threw up twice..once in my bed and once all over my lap/the couch. It's just a … [Read more...]



Muffin Tin Advent Calendar (My Original Idea That Wasn’t)

Don't you hate it when you come up with an idea completely organically then later find out it's been done a thousand times? I came up with the idea for an advent calendar made out of a muffin tin and was really excited about it. I thought "Sweet, finally something where I wasn't inspired by anything I saw online! I'm so original...I'm going to be a … [Read more...]



A Robber and A Bag of Money

 We don't do Halloween around here (what a weird creepy holiday) but we do do Harvest Fest, which is really just an alternative to Halloween at our church. There's lots of candy, games, and costumes and no severed body parts. It's a beautiful thing. So while perusing  pinterest for a costume, I found this... Awesome, right? And how adorable is … [Read more...]



Stenciled Toy Box

For a very long time now we have needed a toy box. Our current "tiny toy basket" just wasn't working for us anymore. I could show you a picture of it all stuffed neatly in there, but lets face it ... 90% of the time, this is what our toy situation looks like. The first step to building a toy box was to nag proposition the husband to do all the … [Read more...]



The BEST Homemade Play Dough

I've done it, I've found the perfect play dough recipe. The other times I've tried to make play dough it turned out too gritty, too slimy, or too dry. This one is smooth, moldable, and stores great. Here is what you will need... . 1 cup white flour 1/2 cup salt 2 tablespoons cream of tartar 1 tablespoon oil 1 cup water food … [Read more...]
