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.

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...]

He gets social interaction from the other babies, it helps sensory development, and helps teach baby new rhythms and sounds.

I've been on "team" Cricut since before I had a blog.

DIY Lavender Milk Bath with Label #imadeit #CricutDesignSpaceStar

Today, I'm going to show you how easy it is to make your own DIY Lavender Milk Bath. I love making sugar scrubs, but find that I can only enjoy them in the shower. I love to take baths.

Last month, my mom gave me a lavender milk bath to try--I loved it and although I know I should have used the entire package in one sitting … [Read more...]
