Made for Mermaids’ “All Dolled Up” Week

My Bee LOVES all of her baby dolls. I have such fun memories of playing dolls and Barbies with my friends when I was little, and I love sharing that with my girl. I have never pushed dolls on her, but if you’ve met her, you know it’s in her top three favorite things (withContinue reading “Made for Mermaids’ “All Dolled Up” Week”

DIY Spring Mini WardrobeĀ

After sharing E’s Halloween costumes from the last few years, it seemed natural to share the kids’ costumes for this year. I finished them about 3 minutes before they needed to wear them to a costume birthday party. Hands down, these were the easiest costumes I’ve made. Not the cheapest, but most of the piecesContinue reading “DIY Batman and Robin Costumes”

DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween costumes have become a pretty big deal around here. E has always loved dressing up, and I’d be lying if I said I had nothing to do with that. For example, for his first Halloween, I dressed him up as a pirate during his nap. I don’t know what happened to my mom-motivation theContinue reading “DIY Halloween Costumes”
