Halloween Treat Bag Printable with a Spooky Brew of Cackles

My husband has been telling me to get rid of this large container of Laffy Taffy candy we’ve had in the house. He says he can’t stop himself from eating it. We never really buy candy for this very reason. If we do, I have to hide it and ration the kids and him. More often than… Continue reading Halloween Treat Bag Printable with a Spooky Brew of Cackles

Spice Up Your Chili Sauce Jar Lids

There is nothing quite like a big bowl of chili to warm you up on a bitterly cold winter day, and in Nebraska we have our fair share of frigid days. Believe me—we eat our fair share of chili.

“Shhh! Baby Sleeping” Sign

One of my friends is expecting her first baby soon, and she isn’t going to find out the sex of the baby. I hate to buy yet another 0-3 or 3-6 month sized outfit in neutral colors.

Advent Calendar Made from Toilet Paper Rolls

A couple years ago, I made this advent calendar with my four-year-old daughter. At the time, she was all about toilet paper roll projects. She never felt frustrated or inconvenienced when she ran out of toilet paper in the bathroom. Rather, I’d hear her shout with excitement, “Mom, we have another toilet paper project to… Continue reading Advent Calendar Made from Toilet Paper Rolls
