Kieran’s Laid-Back Polka Dot Party

Kieran’s Laid-Back Polka Dot Party

I have a special place in my heart for Mary Ellen’s little guy, Kieran, because he was born the same week as my own little man. It’s so cool being able to watch a baby grow from a tiny little newborn into an active, happy toddler! Mary Ellen had a fantastic, stress-free celebration for little [...]

DIY Fabric Prints

DIY Fabric Prints

I had a set of four 11×14, blank canvases sitting in my closet from a DIY project I gave up on last year. I wanted to create some artwork for my soon-to-be-born son’s nursery. I remembered these canvases and went about coming up with some ideas on what to put on them. Given my background [...]

DIY Home Calendar and a FREE Download!

DIY Home Calendar and a FREE Download!

I need to have a calendar within sight while I’m working and planning my family’s life. I’m a very visual person and need to physically see the days ahead of me. If I don’t write down appointments, trips and events, they will disappear into the vast, empty space that is my pregnancy and mommy brain. [...]

DIY Nursing Tanks

DIY Nursing Tanks

When moms-to-be ask me what items I can’t live without, I usually mention my collection of nursing tank tops. A nursing-friendly wardrobe can get expensive in a hurry, but these tank tops were an inexpensive and easy solution. They attach to any regular nursing bra, providing an extra layer of comfort and midsection coverage. I [...]

What girl doesn’t love Rainbows? This two-year-old had an amazing birthday party filled with the red-orange-yellows, right down to the middle of the cake. What’s even more impressive is her awesome mama made the cake herself! Jealous! Take a look at all the cute details and you’ll realize you don’t have to spend a fortune [...]

Homemade Pedialyte

Homemade Pedialyte

When the stomach bug hit our house, we were not prepared. My younger son threw up one night without warning… he was happy, giggling, drinking milk, playing, and then all of the sudden it was like a scene from The Exorcist. The next morning, I went to our local drug store and purchased two quarts [...]

Christmas is right around the corner, but this easy DIY ornament is super quick and will be treasured for years to come! I do it every year with the kiddos in my Kindergarten class and I’ve been told by many parents how much they treasure it and enjoy hanging it on their tree long after [...]

DIY Mini Mei Tai Doll Carrier

DIY Mini Mei Tai Doll Carrier

I have talked about my love for babywearing more than once on MSW. A while back, I was surfing the web and came across a child-sized baby carrier meant for a child’s stuffed animal or doll. My son saw what I was looking at and was mesmerized, “Mommy, can I have one of those?!” Then [...]

C’s Butterfly Garden

C’s Butterfly Garden

My two-year-old loves butterflies. We’ve done lots of butterfly crafts, (check out this one we’ve already shared) but our favorite has to be the toilet paper roll butterflies we made this summer. A few months ago, we made a bunch of these adorable butterflies, decorated them all, and then hung them in her room to [...]

DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte

DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte

What defines Autumn? All things pumpkin, of course! If you live in America, chances are you’ve at least heard of Starbucks’ seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte. Chances are greater that you’ve had two or three or four already this season. Living in Germany, I unfortunately don’t have access to the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte. When fall [...]
