Vintage-Style Cork and 3D Flower Frame {15-Minute Craft!}

3D-Flower-Frame-Main

You guys! How cute did this come out?! I love it. And the best part? So easy and so inexpensive! This would make such a pretty Mother’s Day gift. I was inspired by a frame I saw at Target with cork board on it. Then I saw these cute paper flowers in the cheap bins […]

Spring Porch & Burlap Deco Mesh Wreath

Spring Burlap Deco Mesh Wreath

I have to admit the big, ornate deco mesh wreaths, although impressive and pretty, aren’t usually my taste. But when they came out with the burlap deco mesh, they grew on me. This was the first one I’ve made and it was surprisingly easy and the metal wreath forms are so inexpensive! I wasn’t prepared […]

The Incredible Hulk (My Kids’ Favorite Green Smoothie)

The Incredible Hulk (My Kids' Favorite Green Smoothie)

If your kids are anything like mine, they turn their nose up at all things green at first. Thankfully, after many tries, they love a few green veggies: broccoli, peas, and  kale chips. Green smoothies weren’t a big hit until this recipe (even when I’d try to hide the color in an opaque cup). But […]

Meal Plan Monday, No. 57

Meal Plan Mondays

Note: Many of you know this by now, but for any one new…We focus on a clean-eating, real food diet. I buy organic whenever I can (especially for the produce dirty dozen and dairy/meats) and prepare the cleanest version possible of any recipes I use or link to in the meal plan. We also try […]

Thank Goodness It’s Spring $1100 Cash Giveaway!

T.G.I.S. Thank Goodness It's Spring $1100 Cash Giveaway!

If you won $1100 what would you do with it? Pretend you’re bill-free (ha!), your kids don’t need anything, your significant other doesn’t want anything, and all that’s left is you and the money to do spend how ever you wish. What would you do and/or buy? The biggie on my wish list is a Canon Rebel […]

D.I.Y. Almond Coffee Syrup {Hello, Almond Lattes!}

DIY Almond Coffee Syrup {Hello, Almond Lattes!}

A friend and I were discussing our love of the Almond Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap over Instagram the other day. I said it makes me crave Almond Croissants (one of my favorite treats ever!) and she said it makes her crave Almond Lattes. How have I never heard of an Almond Latte? Thanks to my […]

Antique Hutch Makeover {with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint}

Antique Hutch Makeover with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

My husband loves browsing Craigslist, and lately it has been to my benefit! First, he found this old Tea Cart I made over and earlier this week he found this Antique Hutch for $100 (the former owner’s paid almost $300). We’ve been wanting to give the kid’s playroom (which is technically the dining room) a […]

Lemon-Raspberry Cheesecake Bars {with Oatmeal Crust}

LemonRaspberryBarsMain

Cheesecake is one of my very favorite desserts! And my husband loves raspberries (and pretty much any kind of dessert!). We happened to get a gorgeous organic pint of them in our food co-op basket this past Friday along with oats, lemons, and cream cheese…all organic! So it seemed like destiny to make these bars. […]

Tea Cart Makeover {with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®}

Tea Cart Makeover with ASCP

My husband is always looking on Craigslist and he stumbled upon this adorable tea cart not too long ago and I immediately fell in love with it. We snagged it for $55 from a sweet couple looking to make more room for their grandchildren. This is what it looked like before: There’s a little handle […]
