Entryway Makeover For Just Over $100

I am happy to share this little project that I did in one day.  It is always amazing how such a simple change in my home can bring me so much happiness.  I am going to show you how I did an entryway makeover for less than $60 by "shopping" my house and reusing items in new ways.  

 

 

At the end of the post I will also list all of the items and what I paid for them to give you an idea of how much this look cost me.

 

Print on Fabric Tutorial

Today I am sharing a fun diy crafting technique that can be used for SO many projects.  Once you see how easy it is to print on fabric I bet your mind is going to explode with all the possibilities of what you can do with it.

 

Just in case you like to have a ready made project, I have a very special printable that I am using to show you how to print on fabric.

 

Preschool Rainbow Activities

I'm sharing some really fun, simple and educating preschool rainbow activities just in time for St. Patrick's Day this weekend (though I think a rainbow theme can work LOTS of times throughout the year).  The great thing about teaching kids is that often you can put together activities in 5 minutes or less and you can use items that you have around your house.

 

Rainbow Scratch Paper Tutorial

Have you ever looked at those rainbow scratch papers and wondered how to make them?  If so, you are in the right place today.  I'm sharing this easy peasy rainbow scratch paper tutorial so that you too can make your very own scratch paper any old time that you want.

 

It's a great craft to do with your kids and its easy to cut your paper into different shapes for birthday parties or holidays. A fun and unique craft to add to any activity. 

 

Spring printable

Even though it's not officially spring in my neck of the woods, I can feel that it is coming.  The anticipation has inspired me to make a fun, light hearted spring printable that I wanted to share with you.

 

I love to change up my decor from holiday to holiday and season to season.  As a busy mom I don't like to spend a lot of time or money to do that.

 

Owl Party Birthday for my 7 year old

My daughter decided to have an owl party this year for her birthday.  I went all over town to try and find some cute owl decorations to no avail.  Owl's are simply not a popular party theme this year.  So, I got creative and decided to make my own.

 

I always like to have a theme and a color scheme before I get too far into the planning process.  She picked to have green, purple pink and blue as her colors.  From there I chose party supplies in those colors and then did what I could to make them look like owls. 

 

St. Patrick's Day Preschool Activities

I love holidays and I especially love celebrating them with my kids!  I also love to combine holiday fun with learning.  That is why I am sharing some fun St. Patrick's Day preschool activities and free printables today.

This year I have two preschoolers at home with me and they are 4 and 2.  I like to try and find activities that each of them can enjoy.  With that in mind I have created fun activities that can work for both of them.

Non Alcoholic St. Patrick's Drinks

I love to celebrate everything from the little occasions to the big occasions. I don't like to spend a lot of time or money doing it though.  As a busy mom the last thing I need is to add more to my "to do" list.  So, I like to find easy and inexpensive ways that we can celebrate.  These non alcoholic St. Patrick's drinks add the perfect touch to a family friendly gathering to celebrate all things green.
