Then once you have your idea you can pack that gift basket full of goodies!

Easy DIY Halloween Tutu

Hello my fellow Halloween lovers! Tomorrow is officially fall, who else is excited!? I am so glad that I have a kid that loves fall holidays as much as I do. Every year at my daughters school they are not allowed to dress up in full Halloween costumes, but they are allowed to dress in Halloween clothing. So I thought it would be fun to make a DIY Halloween Tutu for my daughter to wear! Something that has always amazed me is the price of tutu’s either in store or online. They can get super expensive. This project cost me $5 total, and turned out pretty cute in my oh-so-humble opinion. Would you like to learn how to make one for yourself? Let’s check it out! [Read more…]

I thought wouldn’t it be fun to give that amount in a cool way, to make graduation personalized gifts. I mean who would forget a necklace made of money? Who wouldn’t want to receive this gift.

Where are my cat lovers at? We are a home filled with furry friends (4 to be exact!) and we think it’s purrrfect! I love having a cat to home home to and love in the evenings, even if they do require a ton of attention, ha! We recently added a kitten to our household and he is adorable and full of energy! He was a rescue kitty that came from the outside, so we wanted to help him adjust to being on the inside, as all of our other cats are indoor cats. So how can we bring some of the outside indoor for our cat? We thought making an indoor cat garden would be perfect! After all he is #MyPetStar and we want to make sure he is treated like one!  [Read more…]
