Decorating for Fall

I've been SO excited for Fall this year. I think I love this season more and more every year. My favorite part about Autumn is that the cotton fields bloom white like snow, and here in Alabama it's everywhere. It's seriously got to be the prettiest site in the whole world. It doesn't last very … Continue reading Decorating for Fall

DIY Toddler’s Craft Corner

At eighteen months my daughter is really starting to show her fun side. Don't get me wrong-- she's always been fun, but the past month or so her personality and humor and interest in certain things are really coming through. Some of her interests include playing with play-dough, coloring, sorting out or lining up her toys (or quirky little things she picks up around the house). 

Her attention span for books and certain activities is still pretty short because of her age, but it's getting longer as she gets older, so that makes doing crafts and reading or practicing ABCs and 123s a bit easier and that's something I am really starting to instill in our days now. 

We've had a little table for her in our kitchen/dining area for several months and she really enjoys sitting at it for snacks and playing. So I've set her up a little craft corner at it with a box of fun things for her to do-- and learning new skills as she plays, unbeknownst to her...

How to Clean Your Coffee Pot with Essential Oils

In our house, we drink a LOT of coffee. All day every day, pretty much. Because why not?! But since we drink it so much, our coffee pot is used regularly and so it pretty much only gets rinsed and rarely a proper washing. I took a look at it today and figured it was … Continue reading How to Clean Your Coffee Pot with Essential Oils
