I love holiday crafts that are simple, enjoyable, and doable for children. I especially like this Turkey on a Stick Thanksgiving Craft because of the different textures of materials used to create it—felt, wooden craft stick, and foam. Children enjoy hands-on activities with different textures as they learn about the world around them. This craft also teaches some of the basic shapes such as triangles, ovals, and circles.Read More

The idea for these fall pumpkin wreaths developed as I was creating them. I originally purchased multiple colors of burlap ribbon and planned for my project to include three wreath forms—red, brown, and orange—with rosettes attached. When I realized I didn’t have any scrap fabric that would match, the rosettes were out. For some reason, I was in a pumpkin, “orangey” mood, and my plans changed!Read More
I missed writing Currently August 2018, so I definitely wanted to make the post for September!

So, here’s what I’m currently starting, buying, sharing, reading, and recording in September.Read More
One secret key to making great chicken salad is keeping the chicken nice and moist. Using a slow cooker is one of the easiest ways to ensure the chicken doesn’t dry out. I also use boneless frozen chicken breast tenderloins as it’s just much easier to work with boneless meat!Read More

Sometimes it’s difficult to find the perfect centerpiece for a kitchen table or some other focal point that needs a bit of décor. Holidays are always a fun time of year to decorate, but finding décor for the patriotic holidays that is classic, stylish, and on trend can be challenging. Let’s face it, some patriotic décor is super cute, and a lot of it is just plain tacky! Farmhouse style is definitely trendy right now. Go in any home store, and you will find it!Read More
Since July 4th holiday is coming up in less than a month, I recently decided to make a patriotic farmhouse style wreath. Farmhouse style is so trendy and makes a home feel welcoming and inviting, so what’s better than patriotic farmhouse décor to welcome my family as we go to-and-from home during these hot summer months?!!
When it comes to decorating with red, white, and blue for the holidays, I am pretty picky about the style with which I decorate.Read More

There are some things that moms learn in the day-to-day trenches of motherhood. We learn many of these things around the house, from other moms, and while out and about. These tips are learned with experience and sometimes that’s the best way!Read More

I enjoy baking muffins and cookies, so last week I created a new recipe that is a hybrid! It has all the delicious chewiness of a freshly baked cookie but also has the moist texture of a muffin.
I have created a few muffin recipes, and sometimes I use oil and other times I use substitute ingredients. Cookie recipes usually require oil, so in order to develop that perfect cross between a cookie and a muffin, I chose to use Carotino Malaysian Red Palm Oil.Read More
