Make This a How-To Holiday – Marquee Sign DIY Project

This post has been sponsored by my buddies over at Home Depot. All awesomeness is a collaboration between us….

So. The holidays are upon us. It seems so crazy – am I the only one who feels like 2014 only just started? I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by!

If you’re ready to get your home holiday-prepped – the Home Depot is you GO-TO spot. Seriously. I can spend all day there. I told ya’all about how we’re in the middle of a major home makeover – new floors, trim, paint, etc. So I love browsing the goodies in their aisles. Which is why I’m super excited about partnering with them to present a super awesome DIH Workshop!

Home Depot DIH Workshop Marquee Light Project

We’ll be showing you how to make a DIY Holiday Marquee sign – how cool is that, right? You can use this in so many ways – to spell out a holiday phrase, or like I’m going to use it – to spell out my 4 year old little girls name to hang up in her playroom. Super fun. And they’ll show you how to use some simple power tools, that you can try out yourself too, so you can have the know-how to conquer DIY projects anytime you want. We made a less fancy version of this very last minute last year, during football season… [Read more…]


Trash to Toys: Make 10 Recycled Educational Toys

Did you celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd? Across the country, Earth Day is a yearly reminder to think about our role in protecting the environment. Parents can totally have a positive impact on this by creating fun, educational toys from everyday items that may initially seem like trash, but can be repurposed into teaching tools. It’s a fun way to set an example for your kids while spending quality time. And honestly – why keep buying new toys when we all know that kids usually prefer the box it came in anyway? {We’ve all seen it.} When Abby was little, and I’d clean her room, I’d catch myself doing a regular room clean-up, and bagging up so many toys to give away. Why? What a waste of my money, and my time to clean ’em all up! So now, we have a few collections we love {Helloooooooo, I’m talking to you, Fisher-Price Little People Toys. Seriously, I think I might like them even more than her.} But in between – we do crafts, play games, or make our toys and entertainment. Which is why I looooove having the chance to share these great ideas with you – get your own environmentally-friendly kids toys idea inspiration too….
