DIY Shoulder Rice Pack

Last week I wrote about making basic aromatherapy rice packs. These packs are essential winter (as well as year round) survival tools in our house.

And while it’s starting to turn spring most places around here, all the spring cleaning can still leave you with plenty of aches and pains.

Not to mention that when that fickle spring weather turns back to winter in a flash, it somehow seems colder and more miserable!

DIY Door Latch Covers

Our girls are 2 and almost 4 now, and slamming doors is already a thing in our house.

I though we had about 8 more years before that!

The biggest issue with this is that neither of them are proficient at opening the doors once they are slammed shut. So lots of little people and puppies get shut into rooms accidentally.

Or maybe not so accidentally.

I’ve seen these door latch covers floating around online since before Evelyn was born.

Easy and beautiful DIY plant watering guides

We have a wide variety of houseplants in our home, with varying levels of water and care needs.

I have a bit of a problem.

I have a hard time passing a selection of plants, without buying any.

And then I have an even harder time keeping up with their needs consistently.

Not to mention individually.

I tend to assume they all need watered at the same time.

What can I say, I’m not perfect!

Crazy Easy Smock from a T-Shirt

This crazy easy toddler smock has become a staple in our house. We use them for eating, crafting, and cooking with our two little girls. And because they are so quick and easy to make, we are never without protection for our girls’ sweet wardrobes.

Last Minute Valentine’s Day Sign

Last week I said wreaths were one of my favorite DIY decor items. And I wasn’t lying. But another equally favorite item is a simple painted sign.

You can paint just about anything you can think of on a wooden sign, and I never get tired of incorporating them into holiday and every day decor.

DIY Floral Valentine's Day Wreath

I’ve never been big on decorating for the smaller holidays, but growing up my mom always did.

She made sure to make every holiday we celebrated special for us with decor, treats, and small gifts.

Those memories are some of my favorites and I remember how excited and special I felt on each of those days.

I really want that for our girls, so I’m making more of an effort to use every excuse to celebrate.

DIY HELLO fence sign

Living in a state that only has true summer weather for about 3-4 months out of the year, we love to soak it up as much as possible.

Our favorite way is through outdoor living at home. 

With two littles running around though (well, one running and one rolling) it's harder for us to spend long stretches of time out in the heat and sun. 

We try not to let that stop us in preparing both our front porch, and our back yard for future summers spent out there. 

I've almost got the front porch all decorated and set up just as I'd like, although it could still use a few small details.

While this project isn't necessarily "small" I still thought it'd be a fun one to make, and would help brighten up our front porch.

DIY Toddler Coat Rack

I'm just doing a quick post today to show off Evelyn's new toddler coat rack.

This girl knows that when the weather is chilly, she can't go outside without a jacket.

And the girl loves to go outside!

So, I thought it'd be fun to make a cute little coat rack to hang her seasonal jackets and sweaters on.

DIY Headband and Hair Bow Holder

Ok ladies, raise your hand if you have a bit of a hair accessories problem. 

*raises both hands*

Having two small girls at home, I'd say a "bit" of a problem is an understatement.

So, rather than reigning that shopping habit in, why not beautifully organize and display all those goodies in one go?

DIY String Art Tutorial

I'm sure that if you have ever been on Pinterest, you've seen some version of string art. So with Father's Day coming up, what better reason to make another one, and feature it here to show you all how I did it (and for me to make all the mistakes, so you don't have to!).
