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.

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

DIY Pumpkin Garland

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).

Easter basket ideas for infants and toddlers

I love Easter for many reasons. First, being that the weather is usually starting to warm up. I also love all the activities that come along with Easter; like going to church, visiting the Easter Bunny, coloring Easter eggs, parades and egg hunts! I also really love candy. But what I love most of all… Continue reading Easter basket ideas for infants and toddlers

The not-so-new twin mom’s Christmas list

Last week I posted a well thought out, product-centric list of all the baby products that every new twin mom, or twin-mom-to-be, should not be without during their first year with twins. This week, I am shifting gears and posting my wish list as a twin mom (and mom, in general) who has been around… Continue reading The not-so-new twin mom’s Christmas list
