There's a lot to love about this DIY wreath: the wildness of it, the different textures and shades of green, and the fact that making it doesn't require any wire at all. Just fragrant sprigs of evergreens tucked into a grapevine wreath base!
Now that my kids are older, we don't have the problem of drooping heads when they fall asleep in the car. But when they were both in car seats, it presented a troublesome obstacle to napping on long car rides. Often, I would wad up a blanket and shove it next to a child's head, only to find that 3 minutes later his head had fallen completely forward and was bouncing around on his chest. What solutions have you come up with for travel-sleeping?
The words "holiday season" and "holiday stress" can often be seamlessly interchanged right about now. And although there may not be a cure-all for a stress free and relaxing season, there are a few simple things we can do so it doesn't get the best of us.
A table runner is one of my favorite ways to dress up plain tablecloths or bare tables. This is probably the easiest sewing project that you could take on, and the same steps can be used to make napkins, too.
Remember those horrible holiday sweaters that everyone seemed to wear in the 90's? The ones with the jingling bells, 3D snowmen and light-up buttons? Well apparently (and unbeknownst to me until quite recently), they're now a "thing."
It's certainly not a new idea; in fact, I've seen it dubbed "the 21st Century baby book." But perhaps precisely because it has become so popular to take monthly (or even weekly!) photos of your child, there are lots of inspiring ideas out there. I've rounded up some of my favorites.
I don't have a laundry monster at home — I have a tech monster. All of my socks are easily accounted for after a load of laundry, but things like flash drives and USB adapters go missing what seems like every day. Since I can't possibly be the only one who has a hard time hanging on to the knick-knacks that power our daily lives, little extras like cord wraps and phone stands are always appreciated gifts.
A few years back, we mentioned our slight obsession for real dishware. We've never been big on the disposable stuff (even for parties, outdoors or not) and because of it, we have 160 white plates we picked up on Craigslist for a ridiculously low price. Having toted them around for almost 5 years now, we have to say — best decision ever.
