DIY Crafts: DIY Lampshade Cover

This lampshade cover is a wonderful idea. You see, it's attached to the lampshade via velcro. Easy to remove and clean if you have little kids who like to use their cheesy covered fingers to turn on the lamps, while grabbing the lampshade in the process. Oh wait, reliving that one, back to the craft.

Easy Edible DIY Pudding Paint

I was trying to come up with a gift to give my husband. The very first thing that popped in my head was a painting!!!! This was a fabulous idea… there was only one issue. My child puts EVERYTHING in her mouth! I wasn’t about to let her paint with store bought paints. I remembered making pudding paint when I was little and how much fun it was, so I am going to share with you what we did.

Getting Started Potty Training 101. Just Kidding! Send Help!

The signs of readiness are here – the hiding to pee, the waking up from a nap dry, the interest in the potty. We are getting pretty close now. One of the first real milestones that I feel is super important for toddlers but also takes a bit of work is potty training. With my first daughter, it was easy, but I am quickly learning that every child is different so it’s a little more challenging with my second little girl.

Sun Dried Cherry Tomatoes

Easy-peasy do it yourself, homemade sun dried tomatoes. Honestly, I usually pass up cherry tomatoes way to many times in the grocery store. Not knowing what I’d make with them… Well today that has changed. Sun dried tomatoes are just that extra kind of “special.” They add that special “oomph” to any dish, hummus, eggs, salad, pizza, pasta, or tacos. The list goes on. The best part about making homemade sun dried tomatoes is you can add a lot or a little bit of seasonings, it all really depends on your taste buds.
