DIY Pom Pom Rug

 How to Make: Pom Pom Rug 

We are back to school! I don’t know about your kids, but mine LOVE doing crafts together.

I had some yarn left over from when I was trying to learn to crochet. The girls had this great idea to make a rug out of yarn Pom Poms {How fun!!}

I said – Let’s do this! It was super easy and fun for the whole family!! You can pick whatever colors you want to use too

Share with a friend someone who needs to make this!

Snowman Essential Oil Air Freshener

Christmas is the perfect time to get the whole family together and make really fun crafts to give. I found this Snowman Essential Oil Air Freshener from Designs by Miss Mandee and I just knew it would be a big hit!

This time of year is a great time to teach our kids about giving and not just getting what is on their own Christmas list – plus if your kids are anything like mine… they LOVE craft time! My girls love it when they can make something and give it to someone they love.

One reason this idea stuck out to me is because we love using essential oils to freshen our whole house naturally. About 10 years ago, we started making steps to live a more natural life… and that started with eating whole foods and quickly moved to using essential oils to remove some chemicals and toxins from our home (for cleaning and freshening).  Plus, Essential Oils also can make really great DIY gifts just in time for Christmas and these Snowman Air Fresheners were really fun to make (plus the girls got to practice their cutting skills). read more

5 Best Gifts: Craft Kits for Toddlers

Christmas gifts, crafts, toddlers

Christmas is almost here

and everyone is making lists for toys and gifts to get their kids. Here is a list of my pick of Craft Kits that I know would be so much fun for the little toddler in your family. 

These Craft kits are also good for learning and creativity. So instead of a new toy, think about getting your toddler some art supplies or one of these all in one craft kits. I know Aidalyn loves working on crafts on a rainy day or when we are having a slow morning.

Ribbon Bows for a Rainy Day

It was a very cold, rainy day here in Virginia… Time for either cooking or crafting!

Aidalyn also took a great nap, so I caught up on The Biggest Loser and made some hair bows. I made one black polka dot one and one green polka dot one. I need to go get some more alligator clips and ribbon to make more!

This is the tutorial I used: Bow Tutorial
