My son is two years old. This is ripe creativity time. I’m always looking for new low cost projects for him to do. And luckily, any project I come up with is still exciting for him.
For Mother’s Day this year, I bought $1 birdhouses from AC Moore and he used watercolors to paint them. We made one for each grandmother. He loved painting them although truth be told, washing the brush in the water was really his favorite part. Altogether, with the birdhouses and paints the project cost less than $10.

They were cardboard so I just let him color on these with crayons. Thank goodness they are sturdy bunnies because they hopped all around our family room before they were gifted!

Once upon a time, I didn’t have to worry about book recommendations. I was an English Literature major, and my class syllabi had plenty of novels to keep me busy throughout the school year. Summers […]
Every year I’m asked what my go-to pieces are for each season. They normally always revolve around staple pieces that I can wear over and over again – maybe it’s a classic tee or a shoe I could […]
