DIY Easter Egg Wreath

To appease my yarn craft obsession, I scoured Pinterest for DIY yarn pom-pom Easter decorations. I was rather surprised at how few I actually found! They had your average pom-pom garland, but none of those really screamed EASTER! to me. I ended up creating my own garland with wooden beads and pastel-colored yarn. I used… Continue reading DIY Easter Egg Wreath

St. Patrick’s Day Fun

St. Patrick’s Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. Perhaps it stems from my Irish roots, my love for gold or my mild (or not) obsession with holidays in general. Whatever the answer may be, I tend to be a bit extra when it comes to March 17. So, if you are looking… Continue reading St. Patrick’s Day Fun

LUCKY St. Patrick’s Day Mantle Decor

When we were looking for our recent home, one of my very few requirements was that it have a fireplace with a mantel; otherwise, where was I going to hang our stockings?? I now treat my mantel as the focal point of my family room and redecorate it every chance I get! I love a… Continue reading LUCKY St. Patrick’s Day Mantle Decor

Leprechaun Trap DIY

On St. Patrick's Day eve, a leprechaun visits our household to hid his pot of gold, leave treats for the kids and make mischief for mom and dad to clean up.

One of my goals for 2020 is to post more recipes and to share a bit more about what we eat as a busy family of five. I am definitely not a master baker but I have yet to find a sugar cookie recipe that is easier or more delicious than my mom’s! And it… Continue reading Valentine Cut Out Cookies

Valentine’s Day Heart Garland

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, so obviously, I had to gather up some yarn and make some garland! My mantle is my favorite thing to decorate and a good garland seems to pull it all together; no matter the theme. For this particular garland, I combined some of my previously acquired yarn tassel… Continue reading Valentine’s Day Heart Garland

Snow Paint

Snow days are fun, right?! Even as adults we understand how magical that first snow day is. Until we are cooped up with our kids for hours on end.   Sure, we can build snowmen and make snow angels until the cows come home; but how would you like to switch it up a bit?… Continue reading Snow Paint

Snowman in a Jar

"Do you wanna build a snowman?” We all know that line from Frozen, and if your kids are anything like mine, they probably say it while knocking on a random door in the middle of July. However, now that winter is upon us the phrase has become a regular in our household; as the twins… Continue reading Snowman in a Jar

As promised, here is my blog post on creating yarn pumpkin garland! Not only is this perfect for October/Halloween, but I plan to leave my pumpkins up through Thanksgiving (assuming I can hold off from putting up my Christmas decorations that long). I used a variety of colors because I think that helped make them… Continue reading DIY Pumpkin Garland

Now that it is officially October I have started to mix in some spooky Halloween decor with my fall decorations. That means ghosts, witches, skulls, bats and more. This is the first year my twin daughters seem to really understand Halloween and are excited, so decorating has been extra fun. I love Halloween but my… Continue reading DIY Yarn Ghost Garland
