    Our Spring Bucket List

    I’ve always been a big fan of creating seasonal bucket lists. It’s a great way to intentionally celebrate each little holiday and season, and it keeps out family doing fun and creative things. In years’ past, I’ve shared a lot of our yearly bucket lists on my other blog, but I decided to migrate ’em over here from now on. So, at the beginning of each season I’ll be writing a quick post with some ideas for what you can add to your seasonal bucket lists! I’ll also always have a printable version of the list so you can stick it on your fridge and keep track of your fun.…

    2021 Summer Bucket LIst

    It’s summer bucket list time – can you believe it?! Last week was Jackson’s last week of school, so it’s officially summer around here. We kicked off our summer with a quick overnight trip to a local kid-focused hotel (Kalahari, for you locals) and this is our first full week of summer break. I always like to take it relatively easy this time of year, but if you’ve been around for any length of time you’ll know I’m a big advocate for structure during the summer, because it keeps us all sane and happy. I’ve still got to work throughout the summer months, but I also want to be sure…

    DIY Valentine’s Day Cards for Grandparents

    These cute DIY Valentine’s Day cards for grandparents are simple to make with kids of all ages, and are the sweetest homemade Valentine’s cards around! No matter what my children are doing in or around the house, if I announce that it’s time to do a craft, my children will drop everything and run to wherever I am to get creating. I absolutely love that they’re so enthusiastic about making things with their hands, and I always have so much fun crafting with them. So, it’s kind of a shock that this is the first year in my 8 years of parenting that we’ve made homemade Valentine’s Day cards! But,…

    LEGO Organization Ideas

    Did you end up with a lot of new LEGO sets in your home over the Christmas holiday? Me too. I have two boys, and my younger son is just getting to an age where he finds LEGO really appealing. So, LEGO organization is a topic I think about more than I should admit. I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time over the years brainstorming LEGO organization ideas, trying out various ideas, and re-arranging LEGO bricks. We have a general system in place, but I’m always looking for more ideas. So, here are 30 creative and simple ideas for keeping your LEGO bricks organized. This will be for you no…

    7 Days of DIY Ornaments: DIY Yarn Tassel Ornaments

    Welcome back to 7 Days of DIY ornaments! Today’s ornament is a bit of a pivot for me. I had originally planned on some cute yarn-wrapped initials for this ornament. But when I tried to actually make that happen, I quickly realized that it was much more challenging than I expected to make it look good! So, instead, we’re making some really simple (and adorable) DIY yarn tassel ornaments instead! And guess what? They’re easy AND adorable. My favorite combination, as you know by now. These are the type of ornament that are quick enough to make you could make a ton of them back to back – how cute…

    Our Toddler-Friendly Winter Bucket List

    I don’t need to remind you that I’m a huge fan of the bucket list. It’s a well-established fact at this point. And the Christmas bucket list? It’s my favorite one of them all. We’ve done a Christmas bucket list every year since we first moved to Austin, so of course this year is no exception. I’m sure you’re dying to know what’s on the list now that we have a toddler and have to take a whole extra person into consideration (last year he wasn’t quite a year old, so he wasn’t nearly as opinionated as he is now)! I won’t make you wait. I know you’re on the…

    7 Days of DIY Ornaments: Painted Wood Slice Ornaments

    Welcome back, friends! It’s day three of seven straight days of DIY ornament ideas, and today is one my kids loved and I, frankly, felt a little frustrated by – DIY wood slice ornaments! Why did I feel frustrated? Well, because as much as I’d love to be the type of person with beautiful penmanship and a skilled hand when it comes to painting…I’m just not. So, despite my best efforts, a lot of my painting crafts end up looking kind of like a child might have done them. But that’s ok! This is about doing a fun craft with your kids, not about making perfect ornament. So if they…
