DIY Ornaments: Family Farmhouse Style for Christmas

Christmas is most definitely my favorite time of year. I don’t decorate for every holiday, but I go all out for Christmas. My favorite style is modern farmhouse, even though it is a total cliche since I live in Southern California. So when I saw a set of white ornaments with holiday words on them I fell in love…however, not so much with the price. Then I thought, I can totally DIY those ornaments. So I did, but I added a twist. I put the first name of each of our family members on them instead. Check out these sweet farmhouse style DIY ornaments and make a set for your family tree.

Boredom Buster 101: How to Make a Boredom Box

How many times in your mom hood do you think you’ve heard the phrase “mom, I’m boooored”? My guess is around 2,693 times. It’s right up there with the phrases, “mom, I’m hungry” and “mom, I need money for…..”. I’ve read a few articles that say it’s good for kids to be bored.

3 Piece Easy Quilt Tutorial for Indoors and Outdoors

easy Indoor/Outdoor Quilt

Several years ago I told my husband that I wanted to learn how to sew. So low and behold he bought me a sewing machine for Christmas. This meant two things: a) he actually does listen when I tell him things, and b) I had to follow through and give myself sewing lessons. Sewing can be tricky and all this time later I would still consider myself an amateur seamstress. So when I sew I tend to stick with things that are simple and don’t require perfection. The main reason I wanted to learn to sew was to make quilts, which can be pretty time consuming with all of their pieces. Recently I had to put together a raffle basket for my daughter’s soccer team fundraiser. Since I love the idea of giving handmade items, I decided to make an easy quilt to add to it. This quilt only takes three pieces to put together, can be put to use outside (like on a soccer field), and is practical for families on the go.
