DIY Snowman Bell Jar

DIY Snowman Bell Jar

Last month, I was browsing the isles at Michael's when I stumbled across bell jars for 75% off. I instantly grabbed one, and contemplated grabbing two. But decided to just grab the one in hopes I would have time to make something out of it. I also grabbed some filler, a cute little snowman ornament and a beautiful miniature tree. I knew I could make something with all those contents. I waited way too long to get to this easy nap-time craft. I actually did this right before Sarah from While They … [Read more...]

Gifting Christmas

Gifting Christmas

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Living. As always all opinions are our own.  Last month we were contacted by Martha Stewart living to trim a tree. We've participated in past years. Since we already own 2 trees we weren't going to participate. That's when it dawned on me that it would be cool to "gift" Christmas to a family member. My mother inlaw has talked about wanting a new artificial tree ever since I spent the first Christmas with Jon and his family 12 years ago. … [Read more...]

Everyday Stainless Steel Cleaning Tips

Everyday Stainless Steel Cleaning Tips #MeisterCleaners

This post brought to you by Meister Cleaners. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Sew Woodsy. If there is one thing I hate to do it's cleaning. I dread it like the plague.

While I was pregnant we hired a cleaning service to clean our home once a month. It was a glorious thing! I knew after I gave birth we would not be able to afford the … [Read more...]

IKEA Soft Toys for Education

Soft Toy IMage 2015_4

Being a first-generation college graduate and a new mom, education is a big priority to me (and Jon too). Every week, I take Ryder to a music class. He gets social interaction from the other babies, it helps sensory development, and helps teach baby new rhythms and sounds. According to BabyCenter.com "Some experts claim that learning to play an instrument makes kids smarter in math, but that conclusion is based on research that focused on older children, not babies and young toddlers. However, … [Read more...]

8 Tips For Surviving Baby’s First Santa Photos

8 Tips For Surviving Baby's First Santa Photos

A few weeks ago before thanksgiving I brought Ryder to the mall to take photos with Santa. I was a little concerned that he would not do well with Santa, but really what I was concerned about was entertaining him in a very long line! I choose to go the week before thanksgiving on a Wednesday in the middle of the day. Now I realize most people don't have that luxury but that's ok. I have other suggestions on beating the crowds. I'm excited to say that the photo above was our very last photo of … [Read more...]
