Remember the post I did on our 3 Sprouts storage bin last week? Not only is this storage bin adorable but it’s big enough to actually store my son’s toys in, it’s durable and it’s eco-friendly. The best part? 3 Sprouts is giving away a storage bin to one of you!
Welcome to our DIY Crafts series! DIY Crafts is focused on crafts that we have done, crafts that we will do and crafts that others have done that I feel deserve the “Craft Spotlight“.

“But Mom… WHAT DOES IT DO?!”
My kids love toys that DO something. If you hand them anything, their first question is “what does it do?!” So unfortunately, a lot of really great toys are dead in the water unless they’re equipped with computer chips, flashing lights and sounds. Until one day, I came across Sprig Toys.
When I first learned that our vacation to the Caribbean was a “go” I immediately bust out into the happy dance. Then reality hit me and I realized that traveling from Hawaii to Tortola in the British Virgin Islands would take us a total of 8 flights (roundtrip), over 10,000 miles, two full days of traveling and through five different time zones… all with a 6 month old infant. Considering we live on an island and have never traveled more than 30 miles in any direction with our son, this travel marathon posed some obvious obstacles.
Ergo, Boba, Beco… the list goes on and on. If you are like me, you have seen about a dozen different baby carriers, and have read or heard many reasons why moms using that particular carrier think it’s THE one to have. Or if not, you at least have felt overwhelmed as to how to make a decision on which one works best for you, your baby or toddler, and your family. As moms, we are all different shapes and sizes, and our babies are all of different temperaments, so these carriers really aren’t “one size fits all”. And if you’ve seen the prices on these things, they don’t exactly lend to being careless about your decision.
“Mom, I slept so good last night…” are never really words I thought I would hear come out of my preschooler’s mouth. They did and she was right.
These light cheesecake brownies get their rich taste from reduced-fat cream cheese, reduced-fat sour cream, and unsweetened cocoa powder. To make the cookie crust, after grinding the chocolate wafers in a food processor, spread them evenly in a baking pan lined with two crisscrossed sheets of parchment paper.
My family loves Snapfish.

A while ago, I wrote about how my daughters love the Nintendo DS. They’ve each got one and they bring them everywhere they go. With a wide collection of games, we thought it couldn’t get any better. Then we added this shiny new member to the family.

An American-born beauty, the cheesecake gets upgraded with a triple dose of chocolate. It’s in the crust, in the filling, and over the top. To help prevent cracks, turn off the oven and let the cheesecake sit inside for an hour. To cut the cleanest slices, use a knife dipped in warm water.
Traveling with kids can be stressful. I recently took a 2000 mile round trip with my husband and 3 children. They are 10 years old, 3 years old and 10 months old. I was afraid that it would be one meltdown after another.
For clarification, I’d like to state that I am a fully grown adult and I am not a wuss.
Ok, now that that’s out of the way, let’s get started. I LOVE GUMMY VITAMINS! Yes, its true. I take gummy vitamins every morning and they are delicious. This does not in any way make me any less of a serious business adult. (Maybe it does a little…)
