Fizzy Cotton Candy Bath Salts

As a mom, getting a few minutes alone in the bathtub truly is a treat. That is why I wanted to make bath salts that felt like I was literally bathing in one of my favorite treats, cotton candy!

Cotton Candy Easter Egg Bath Bomb Recipe

This time of year is a favorite for a lot of people. It is the time of year that stores carry Easter candy! Personally, I don’t discriminate between candy during any time of the year and enjoy Easter candy just as much as I enjoy Valentine’s Day candy, Halloween candy, or Christmas candy. I love candy! That is why I wanted this month’s bath bombs to smell just like that, cotton candy! This cotton candy Easter egg bath bomb recipe is really fun, festive, and will have your bath smelling like you just stepped foot into a candy store.

Forgiving as a Little Child

When I would read scriptures that referred to becoming like a little child, it understood what they were saying, but they took on a whole new meaning as a parent.

Before becoming a mom, I had plans of being the mom who didn’t ever raise her voice and always had a level head when her children were acting out. I think those are probably the ideals that most of us get when we dream of what our future with children will be like.

Unfortunately, those ideals aren’t always a reality. Once I became a mom to a little girl who had opinions of her own, I realized that I am only human and can’t always be the ideal mom that I hoped of being. I make a lot of mistakes as a mom. [Read more…]

Easter Sunday Style: Toddler Edition

Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. I loved growing up with the tradition of having a big Easter egg hunt with my cousins on the Saturday before Easter. I loved waking up on Easter morning to find goodies from the Easter bunny, getting in a fancy dress, and spending time at church that day. It has always held a special place in my heart for many reasons.

It is fun to pass on some of these traditions to my daughter, now that I am a mother. I hope that one day she can look back and have sweet memories of the Easter holiday like I do. [Read more…]

Gold Glitter Wood Slice Spring Sign

I can’t even tell you how excited I am that it is finally Spring! Even though the weather in Idaho isn’t as happy and springlike as I would hope, I still enjoy adding some springtime charm to my house to make it feel bright and fresh. I knew I wanted to create a sign that also had some sort of natural element in it. I absolutely love wood grain so I chose to create a super cute Spring sign on a wood slice. Of course I needed to add some gold glam to it too!

Gold Glitter Wood Slice Spring Sign Tutorial

I am kind of obsessed with how it turned out. It is modern and fun! It was so easy to make too. Here is what you need to make your very own…

Spring Wood Sign Supplies

*Wood slice

*Vinyl (Just a scrap of vinyl will work because you won’t actually be using the vinyl for anything other than a stencil)

*Vinyl cutter

*Gold paint

*Gold glitter

*Glitter glue

Wood Sign Tutorial

First, cut out the word “Spring” out of vinyl and stick it onto the slice of wood.

Wood Slice Sign Tutorial

Paint over the vinyl and fan out slightly around the edges.

Gold Glitter Spring Sign

Spread glue around the edges of the gold paint and dump glitter on top of it. Spread the glitter out to make sure it covers all of the glue. Let the glue dry.

Spring Wooden Sign Tutorial

Peel off vinyl and scrape off excess glitter. You may even want to take a little sand paper to it to give it more of an ombre effect. I also went back and painted the gold paint on top of the glitter and fanned it out to blend it all together a little bit more.

Dollar Store Tulip Doily Garland

Words can’t express how excited I am for Spring! Seeing buds forming on the trees and witnessing the snow slowly melt warms my heart! I can’t wait to be able to see green grass and beautiful spring flowers blooming! Unfortunately, in Idaho, those flowers don’t bloom until May usually. SO, I had to find a way to bring Spring flowers into my house to brighten things up! I made a paper tulip doily garland!
#spring #easter #decor #tutorial
I love how it looks when the light from the window shines through it! This is such an easy way to bring color into your home this season! It is really inexpensive and it only takes about 10 minutes too! Can’t go wrong there. To make one of your own you need…

DIY Spring Geometric Triangle Background

Can I just tell you how much I LOVE my Spring decor?! I love that my house is full of color again now that the temperatures are warming up! By far, my favorite part of my Spring decor is my geometric wall behind my faux mantel vignette! 
#spring #diy #decor #easter
It makes such a big statement and can easily be kept up there all summer long if I wanted to leave it up. It is really easy to make too! You don’t even need a vinyl cutter for it! Here’s what you need…
#vinyl #expressions #polka #dot #glitter
*Vinyl in whatever colors you want (I used the polka dots and the glitter ones)
*Scrapbook paper (I used Dear Lizzy Fifth and Frolic paper from JoAnn’s) 
*scissors
*paper cutter
*tape
#expressions #vinyl #decor #polka #dot #glitter
Cut your vinyl into squares. Mine are 4 inch squares.
#dear #lizzy #scrapbook #paper
Cut your scrapbook paper in squares the same size as your vinyl squares.
#expressions #vinyl #decor #dear #lizzy
Now cut your squares in half from corner to corner to create triangles. You are ready to stick them to your surface!
#expressions #vinyl #dear #lizzy #decor #decoration
Now to apply it, go with the flow of your surface. Start in one corner and work your way over. Not ever inch needs a triangle. Leave some spaces blank and switch the direction of the triangles. Mix up the colors so that they are spread out across your surface. I didn’t put any triangles in the middle of my door because I knew I was hanging a mirror there so I worked around that area. For the vinyl, just peel of the backing and stick it onto your surface. For the paper, use tape and stick it on. This isn’t as easy as peeling and sticking the vinyl so you may just want to stick with vinyl only, but the great thing about this is that you can make yours totally unique to you! 
#easter #decor #diy #tutorial #howto
I love how it looks all put together with my Spring decor! This is something that you could easily do as artwork, on a statement wall, or even furniture! Use your imagination!
