For each holiday I enjoy making something a little different. This year the Ribbon Retreat asked me to join in and make something from a secret box of goodies. I decided to use ribbon in a not so traditional way. The great thing about this project is you can make it for any holiday using whatever silhouette figure you wish. So here you have a Ribbon Holiday Hoop Decor.
My kids love a good Muffin now and then. Usually they like Blueberry, but today I had leftover bananas and decided to make healthier muffins using coconut oil. My kids devoured them. I made a few variation muffins to give them a try and all of them were delicious! Next time you have some brown spotted bananas whip up a batch for your family. They are awesome in lunched for breakfast or snack time after school.
Keeping your kids healthy is always a chore especially if they attend public school. You dread the day they go back to school after school breaks like summer and holidays. With 4 in school I feel like we are always sick. When I hear of someone in the neighborhood throwing up, high fever or coughing I immediately start giving my kids vitamin C. But today I am going to share some great ways to keep the cold and flu bug out of you house. Now that doesn’t mean you kids won’t get sick, but doing what you can in simple ways never hurts!

Making a fashion statement in my workout journey, cute clothes, hats, beanies, head phones, had never been a thing for me. I see my friends post their cute outfits ans accessories before the y go to the gym. I am not one of those gym girls who gets ready for the day before she heads to the gym at 5:30 in the morning. I like to roll out of bed, put my hair in a ponytail, slip on the first gym clothes I see and go with it. I go to the gym for various reasons most importantly to stay healthy for myself and my family and for no other reason. In the winter its just to cold to run outside or even drive to the gym with out a hat. So I decided to set out and find a fun hat that was ponytail friendly. Something beside a ball cap. I found something similar on an international website but didn’t like the price. So I found some double knit scrap and made one of my own. This tutorial is super easy to follow and you will have a new beanie in 45 minutes or less!

Nail polish and lip gloss. I mean what teen age girl doesn’t love nail polish and lip gloss. With a new nail polish and lips gloss you can’t help but feel fabulous. So I whipped up this fun but simple printable to remind the girls it’s their day to Sparkle! Scroll to the bottom to print yours today.
Since Star wars is all the rage this year. I think it was time for a few Star wars classroom Valentines. Especially since my 6th grader requested them. It is his last year of elementary school so I just had to! I hope you enjoy them! Add your favorite valentine treat or toy. These prints are made by me. Please use only for personal use.
Thanks to my daughter, we made up Disney Descendants Valentines for her class at school. You can add any treat that sounds good! I was thinking chocolate hearts or mini candy bar. So print them out and add a treat. Your little Miss will love handing out these fun prints for Valentines this year!
My little girl loves her Friends and loves to do sweet things for them. So after finding these pearler bead valentine packs at Joanns I knew I just had to make a sweet print for a few of her friends. You could also use marshmallows, chocolate hearts or heart suckers. They make a perfect valentine for classrooms, a friend, or for your own children. Just click on the link below and print yours for Valentine’s this year.
This little girl has my whole heart. She loves ruffles, crafting, sewing, playing with bugs and digging inthe dirt. SO when she said she wanted to be Mal from Disney’s Decendants for Halloween I rolled my eyes. Up until now she has let me pick her costumes. Some of my favorites are Rainbow Brite, Astrid from How to train your Dragon and Little Bo peep. But this year was a little different.
The 2016 theme for the youth of the LDS Church is 2 Nephi 31:20.
“Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope,
and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ,
and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life”
For my girls I love to have a little something to help them memorize the theme and keep it in their scriptures or on the wall.
