Kids’ Art Organization Display

My daughter loves pictures. She loves coloring pictures and keeping every, single one of them. She likes finding photos and stuffing them in every purse she owns, and sometimes she even sleeps with them. I find myself picking up her treasured pictures everywhere I go. Sometimes it gets a little out of hand and I have to throw a few away when she isn’t looking. She just is so proud of them, that I started feeling bad for throwing them away. I wanted a place for her to be able to show off her treasures, so I made a fun little board to organize her art and be able to display them for all to see.

This kids’ art organization display is one of the easiest projects I have ever taken on, and I already know it is going to make a serious impact on how organized her room feels. The fun thing about this is it can be totally customized for different kids and where you are going to be displaying their artwork. I was able to find this adorable wooden arrow at Michael’s and I just loved it, but if you had a certain theme in a room you wanted to stick with, you could do any shape you wanted. You could even use a scrap of wood. Here is what I used to create this display…

LDS Missionary Tag Christmas Ornament

I have been waiting a long time to be able to write this post. I have waited for over 2 years. My little brother is FINALLY home after serving an LDS mission in Bogota, Colombia. He has been back for just over a week! I wanted to be able to give him a little gift when he got home, but wanted it to just be a small thing since he is getting Christmas gifts from me so soon too. I decided to make him an LDS missionary tag Christmas ornament!

Puffy Paint Snowman Kid Craft

Sometimes I question why I live in Idaho. That usually happens during the winter when I freeze 90% of the day. Now that my daughter is old enough to understand the fun that can come with snow, she wants to go outside all of the time! The problem is that I don’t always want to get all bundled up and freezing! Instead of feeling like a failure as a parent, I like to come up with fun activities that we can do in the house so we an stay nice and cozy. This puffy paint snowman kid craft has been a major lifesaver! She loves playing with the puffy paint and she feels like she is still building a snowman. Of course she named her girl snowman “Olaf” too. So, what do you say? Do you want to paint an Olaf? Do you want to build a snowman?

Frozen Elsa Inspired Christmas Ornament and Tree

If you have kids, they probably love Frozen. That is definitely the case at my house. I have a full blown, Elsa loving princess who seems to react to any Frozen memorabilia like it is the last Frozen item in the planet. She treasures them. She is obsessed! That’s why I knew I needed to make her holiday dreams come true and make her a Frozen Elsa Christmas Tree for her room!

I am not one who is about to plaster character’s faces all over my house, so I decided to go with more of an “inspired by” theme instead of so literal. I LOOOOVE how this tree turned out! I think it is absolutely stunning! Photos seriously don’t do it justice. It just sparkles! This tree was really easy to whip up and I just know your little Frozen lover will love one too!

Instagram Christmas Ornament UNDER $2!

It is probably no surprise to you that I am a huge fan of Instagram. It quickly became my favorite form of social media and is still my very favorite! I love the gorgeous photos people put on their feed. I also enjoy finding new, interesting people to follow as well. I am also a sucker of hashtags when it comes to Instagram. I use them in their proper form so that my photos will be categorized, but I am also a fan of the “tongue in cheek” hashtags that happen within the Instagram culture. That’s why I knew that I needed an Instagram Christmas ornament for my tree this year!

I am so excited to bring you my first Christmas post of the season! I have several holiday projects coming your way and some pretty amazing holiday giveaways too! It is going to be a pretty epic holiday season, if I do say so myself! When it comes to my holiday decor, I like things to be unique, but relatively simple. There are already so many things that come with Christmas decor, I don’t like to overwhelm myself too much by having really busy decorations everywhere too. That’s why I loved the concept of these snow globe apothecary jars. Forgive me, the pictures aren’t my best, but if you could see them in person, you would flip out over how gorgeous they really are!
