There is just something about Fall that gets me excited about crafts and activities! This time of year I love taking walks and soaking in the crisp air and beautiful sights. My daughter found it hard to wait for Halloween though. Watch my video for some easy inspiration for Fall activities for your little one!

Making Your Own Autumn Candles

I want to show you two of the candles I made in celebration of these colder days! One turned out just as I wanted and the other not so much... Even though I didn't get the color just right I still want to share the process with you so you can hopefully avoid the same mistake.

Staying Cool In The Heat

Here in the Pacific Northwest we are experiencing an unusually hot summer. Temperatures around 115 degrees Fahrenheit have never before been seen in Oregon and Washington until now. Those lucky enough to have central AC were desperately trying to keep their units going while most didn't have cooling systems at all. The summer heat can be uncomfortable but also very dangerous. It's important to do anything you can to stay cool during these sweltering days. You have come to the right place!

Quick DIY Garden Boxes

We decided to build our own garden boxes on our back patio! It's beautiful, conveniently located outside the door of my kitchen and took only a few hours to build.

Family Garden Reimagined

We decided we wanted to redesign the garden we created last year. We learned a lot of lessons from last years setup and wanted to be more thoughtful this time around. These improvements will help any home garden be more successful!
