Mermaid Pumpkin DIY

I’ve seen pretty sparkly pumpkins in recent years that look so fun for Halloween. I wish when I was a kid we had Pinterest to find blogs with super cool ideas for holidays. Luckily raising my daughter I can find fun inspiration and lots of supplies at the craft store. Oh what a time to be alive! There might be craziness in the world but the crafting has never been better. I was wanting sparkle without using glitter so I used glitter spray paint and it was so fun to use! I may have gotten a little extra sparkle on our patio, whoopsie, I hope my fiancĂ© likes the glitter porch. I’ve been on a mermaid kick since the summer and I wanted to bring it into the fall. Mermaids don’t need to stay in the summer and since we live near the ocean why not have a mermaid themed pumpkin. I love how pretty and sparkly this diy mermaid pumpkin is, I think it looked even better in person. It’s hard to capture in pictures just how sparkly it looks. read more

DIY Trolls Easy Costume

I absolutely love the Trolls movie! It’s adorable and my daughter loves it. I made her this cute little trolls costume to wear for fun but it would be perfect for Halloween. I made this easy no sew tulle skirt and organza ribbon headband. One year I ordered my daughter a costume on Etsy, it was adorable but I realized the tulle skirt is something so easy to just make myself for the next time. Just put the skirt over a solid blue dress or blue shirt and pink or blue shorts. This diy trolls costume is so easy really anyone can make it. If I can make it anyone can. read more

DIY Rainbow Poop Emoji Costume

| DIY, Halloween

My daughter has been obsessed with the poop emoji since she discovered it! She is only 6 but she loves texting family with emojis on my phone. She has an emoji backpack and loves all the emojis. She loves the rainbow poop emoji even more than the poop emoji. I thought it would make a cute costume. I don’t know how to sew so I am not making any fancy costumes for her. I also don’t want to put a ton of effort into something she will wear a couple times. This costume is prefect for an emoji lover and incredibly easy to put together. read more

Easy Ocean Rocks

| Crafts, DIY

Sometimes you can get to the beach and other times you need the beach to come to you! I made these easy ocean rocks to bring a little calm into my life and have some fun painting. I love how they turned out. We also live about ten minutes from the beach and I thought spreading them around by the beach would be fun! I couldn’t find big rocks when I first looked so I decided to practice on some smaller ones. With larger rocks you can paint sayings on them as well. Spread them by the beach or around town with some kindness messages. I love the trend to spread kindness and kind messages to strangers. These were so easy for anyone to make and the end result is super pretty! read more

Easy Galaxy Rocks

| Crafts, DIY

Lately I have seen all kinds of pretty rocks people are decorating and spreading around town for others to find. It is also a relaxing activity to paint rocks. I used to paint and draw a lot but I haven’t had as much time to paint lately. I wanted to try out the whole fun rock painting craze and it was so fun! I didn’t find the best rocks at first for painting and these were my practice ones but I love love how they turned out. The best thing about these easy galaxy rocks is they look pretty and really anyone can make them. You can add messages on top as well with white or light blue paint. The key to making the galaxy is to have a variety of colors to add depth to the look of the rocks. They don’t have to look perfect and you can really make them your own way! read more

Easy DIY Paper Palm Fronds

| Uncategorized

This is my end of summer blog celebration with some tropical fun! I made some easy diy paper palm fronds for my daughters party and I wanted to show just how easy they are to make. You can’t have a tropical party without some palm fronds. You could decorate a whole party with a bunch of these on banners, table decor, and with balloons. Add some pineapples too and you are good to go. They can be in any colors to matching party colors. I only made one size but make them in a variety of sizes to give it more dimension as well. I know fall is coming but who doesn’t want to stay warm and tropical with some tropical celebrations. They are probably needed more in winter. I live by the beach so tropical parties are always an option! read more

10 Games to Entertain Kids Waiting In Line At Disney

| Games, kids

I love trips to Disney they are absolutely the best time and kind of trip to take with kids. Kids will always remember the fun times they had at Disney Land or Disney World. Luckily they probably won’t remember the time spent waiting in line. The crowds and lines can kind of put a damper on an otherwise fun trip. While waiting in line for a few of the rides at Disney World last month I thought why didn’t I plan better for this? I know there will be wait times and I was completely unprepared with ways to entertain my six year old. While spending the time wait I did come up with some fun little games to play in line and around the park. Nothing difficult to do just easy fun for the family and maybe get a few extra laughs. These can come in handy when you are losing energy and waiting in line. read more
