Inspired Butterfly Wall Decor

While at Target recently I saw these really adorable white butterflies that were meant to be put on the wall in a cluster and I really liked them but, as always, I wanted to figure out how to make it myself. Tonight I came up with something I am even happier with- and I still […]

mmmmm Chocolate!!!

I broke down and made brownies tonight. I don’t know why I think that they are healthier because they are vegan but I think that is how my brain is justifying it. They are not. They are far from healthy, but they are the lesser of two evils. That is until I added the dollop […]

This project came out very cute and didn’t take a lot to complete either. Each child drew a picture of themselves or their face in the middle of the paper and then went outside to collect leaves from the ground outside. Then they glued the leaves all around their face/body as if they were in […]
