For several months now, despite the Enchanted Forest Fairytale Room I did for my 4 year old daughter, which has a nice big queen bed since it doubles as our guest room, she and my 5 ½ year old son have chosen to share the twin bed in my son’s room. So we started looking at bunk beds…to get decent ones, it’s not cheap! Then
I’m planning to show you my son’s DIY bunk beds and Boy Bedroom tomorrow but I thought I’d share a quick, simple tutorial for this comic book pillow I whipped up during nap time. It’s crazy easy. All You Need: Plain light colored fabric pillow Fabric Markers I pulled up some images online for ideas and then simply sketched the idea by hand with a
If you follow me on social media, you probably saw a post or two about us celebrating my now 4-year-old’s birthday over Superbowl weekend.

I had been buying an organic coconut oil salt scrub but it’s a little pricey, so I have been meaning to create a DIY version and finally got around to it. It’s so much cheaper and I LOVE it. My mom gave me this dried lavender from her local
Our “cleaner” living lifestyle started back in the 2008 when we watched Food, Inc. It started with food, but we’ve also been working on reducing the chemical-laden products in our whole household. I’m planning to start sharing these “better for you” posts every now and then to share products I find and love. I do a lot of research and review reading when I try
