If you’re as big a fan of Pinterest as I am, you probably know that the beautiful crafts and recipes that you see on the site don’t always turn out as planned. Based on Heather Mann’s blog, CraftFail.com, CraftFail: When Homemade Goes Horribly Wrongcelebrates the creativity of Pinterest and other craft/recipe blogs, but from the other side. (more…)

Hi everybody, as you may or may not know, I’m getting ready to have a baby in about a week. (Eeeek, it makes me so nervous just writing that.) As a first time mother, I’m very concerned about the products I use on my baby, including baby wipes. (more…)
Would you take a look at this dapper little guy? I just adore owls, and I don’t think an owl can get any cuter than this dude wearing a suit. (more…)

I’ve always kind of had a thing for peacock feathers. I don’t know why, I just think they look really cool. So when Tulip® Body Art® sent me some face and body paint to play with, I automatically knew that I wanted to do some cool peacock feather makeup. (more…)
Okay, so I know we’ve all had a craft fail or two, right? You know how it goes, it seems like it’s going to be an easy craft, nothing can go wrong, and then it turns out looking…y’know…meh. Well, have you ever had the opposite happen? You’re not sure about a DIY project or craft, and then it turns out SO MUCH BETTER than you were expecting. That’s exactly what happened to me with these DIY Halloween lanterns. (more…)
I have a big problem…I’m addicted to Instagram! Whenever I have a free minute I’m opening it up on my phone, browsing through pictures, posting selfies, hashtagging, etc. It might not seem like such a big problem, but I’m on Instagram ALL. THE.

This is just a quick DIY post on how you can paint really fancy letters to make a custom family sign for your home. I know I probably say this on every post, but it was really easy! And this is coming from a person who has the handwriting of a third grader. (more…)
I’m on a pumpkin recipe roll right now! I seriously can’t get enough of yummy pumpkin desserts. Call it being 9 months pregnant, or maybe I just have the autumn bug – either way, I must. eat. pumpkin. This week I made a pecan and pumpkin dump cake!
I have to admit, in the past my husband and I haven’t been the most fiscally responsible people. We’re more “fly by the seat of our pants” types of people than the type to sit down and discuss financial planning. BUT when we found out we were expecting a baby, all that changed. We began to think of health insurance premiums as a monthly budget essential – more like rent, less like a discretionary expense (such as entertainment). This year we started to educate ourselves about how your insurance deductible works (definitely essential when you’re going to the OB 1-4 times a month). (more…)
