Make Your Own Lava Lamp

Did everyone enjoy Mother’s Day weekend? I sure did! Our weekend was filled with long days in the sun, four-wheeler rides, family meals, bike-riding and bubbles.

Now that spring has finally arrived, the entire family is eager to spend every possible second. . . outside. Today I’m going to show you how to make your own Lava Lamp! This is a great outside project and {Read More}

DIY Soy Lip Balm

This post may include affiliate links. Please see my disclosure.  With the nicer weather just around the corner, who doesn’t want to have their sun-kissed lips shine? Today I’m sharing a quick and easy recipe for making your own lip balm. A lot of the recipes out there use beeswax, but this one uses soy. Years ago I used to make a lot of soy candles. Then, I had children and the candle-making stopped, however, I had a huge bag of soy pastilles left {Read More}

Target Gift Card Printable – Teacher Appreciation

Teacher Appreciation is right around the corner and sometimes it’s difficult to express the depth of gratitude and respect I have for my children’s teachers. Even on my kids’ worst days I see the care and concern their teachers have for them and it literally brings tears to my eyes. Maybe I’m more emotional than others out there, but when holidays and special occasions like Teacher Appreciation roll around, I want to do my part in thanking them and letting {Read More}

“Moon” Dough

The “we need some color” saga continues at our house. These days we’ve been forced to stay around home due to the beautiful weather (sarcasm). And when I say “around,” I mean “in” the house. I decided to whip up some homemade “moon” dough. It’s really a cross between Moon Dough and Play-Doh. I like it because it’s made with only three ingredients: 3-in-1 wash, corn starch and food coloring. I decided on the 3-in-1 wash because I love how {Read More}

Garbage Disposal Tablets

This post may include affiliate links. Please see my disclosure.  I adore my garbage disposal. Until about three years ago, I was putting raw garbage into old shopping bags, tying the handles and taking it out to the garage to put in our large waste bin. I couldn’t stand having it in the garbage in the kitchen. Raw garbage stinks within hours (sometimes minutes), causing you to have to change garbage bags over and over. When we got our disposal, everything changed. {Read More}
