When my daughter first told me that she wanted a unicorn birthday party to celebrate her 4th birthday, images of rainbows and glitter unicorns immediately danced in my head. Even pushing thirty, I think I was more excited than she was. Then I came back to reality. We are moving to another state in a few short weeks and I had neither the time nor the funds to plan the extravaganza I had envisioned. However, I was determined to give my daughter a magical unicorn party, but with a firm budget and simple decor in mind. Not only did I stay under budget and keep my sanity, but everything turned out beautifully. Most importantly, my daughter had a blast celebrating her special day.
Halloween is almost here! Up here in Alaska, that means snow is coming (scary)! But I’m not about to let that ruin one of my favorite holidays. With the colder weather and upcoming festivities, this is the perfect excuse to grab that PSL and get crafting. Halloween is the only time I will even entertain the idea of spiders but this Halloween spiderweb is just cute enough to earn a place in my home.
This DIY hook rack is so cute and can be easily customized to fit your decor and needs. This one is now proudly displayed in my daughter’s room as a coat hanger, but the possibilities here are endless. It is so simple to make, my three-year-old joined in the process! All in all, this DIY hook rack took a few hours and cost less than $30 to make.
Rory Neil is six weeks old and I have finally finished his aviation nursery. (Better late than never, right?) When I found out that we were having a boy, I was clueless as to how I wanted to decorate. My daughter’s nursery, with all things pink and girly, came much easier of course! After scouring Pinterest for ideas, I stumbled upon Jennifer’s nursery at MommyBeta. I fell in love with the airplane wall she had designed above her son’s crib. With my husband’s career in the Air Force, aviation was a perfect theme for my Rory. I re-created her look and then let my imagination go from there.
This DIY chalkboard was so simple to make and looks beautiful hanging on our wall where we had nothing but a big white space before. My daughter absolutely loves it and it is something that we can enjoy doing together. Most of all, this tutorial is that it was designed to come off of the wall so that taking it down for moving is fast and easy! As a military family who is moving around every 2 – 3 years, this was a big deal for us!
