The Most Wonderful SLIME of the Year

Do you have slime rules in your house? Yes. Rules about slime. I do.

Slime stays in the kitchen or the bathroom. That’s it.

After I found slime mashed into pillows and the mattress…it was time to draw the line. That being said, we still make slime. I have a whole collection of slime supplies in my garage. It’s such an easy activity to do with your kids, and celebrate some of the fun of the holidays. Continue reading “The Most Wonderful SLIME of the Year”

Peppermint Holiday Hand Scrub

It’s been a while since I’ve made any “homemade” holiday gifts. I used to do it much more than I do now. I feel like once Halloween hits the rest of the year end months rush by. I have to schedule days where I actually don’t do anything but work on my to-do list.

Today was a day like that. I came up with a list of three projects I wanted to tackle. This hand scrub being one of them. I had all of the supplies in my cabinet already, besides the glycerin so it kills two birds with one stone. Continue reading “Peppermint Holiday Hand Scrub”

Stand Out Holiday Cards

 

See my WPTV Holiday Card Segment here…

Halloween is over, and poor Thanksgiving. It gets no love these days. It’s almost like the stores and retailers have forgotten all about that one. I always used Thanksgiving as a holiday card finish line. I know that if I don’t have my holiday cards done and sent out by Thanksgiving, there is a 98% chance they won’t get done.

Deep Ocean Swirl Ice Cream

Did you know it’s Shark Week? It’s one of those things that I never really paid attention to until I had little boys scooting around the house. The two groups of people that know the most about sharks, I believe, are marine biologists and 5-year-old boys.

Of course, since it is Shark Week we have been talking a lot about the ocean and its animals. This originally started out as Galaxy Ice Cream since we had been talking about space so much but it easily transitioned into Deep Ocean Ice Cream (the colors were pretty much the same so I went with it).

Strawberry Basil Jam

I can’t grow many things… but basil can survive anything. It sits out in open pots at the grocery store under fluorescent lights… I mean, you really have to try and kill basil. With that being said I have 2 pots of basil that won’t stop growing and can’t deal with making any more pesto. I also hate not using it and wasting all my hard work gardening. Hehe. Continue reading “Strawberry Basil Jam”

Monster Birthday Bash

So how long does it take the normal average person to plan a birthday party? I’m asking because I’ve already started idea boards for parties years down the road. Normal right?

I get excited about planning it out and adding details where I can. My 5-year-old was excited to help me so I made sure to find projects he could help me out with as we were planning the Monster Bash. Continue reading “Monster Birthday Bash”
