Easter Basket Filler Ideas for Baby and Toddler

Easter is just a few short weeks away. It’s a time for celebration, and I am excited to curate an Easter basket for my toddler and baby. I love to plan out gifts rather than hitting up the pharmacy late on Saturday night before Easter grabbing whatever candy they might have left. Mostly, this is due to the fact that my toddler has become a candy monster and I am doing my best to direct her attention to other things. Baby Easter Basket Ideas My little guy will soon be turning 1! At this point, he likes putting everything in

Cuter Version of an 80s Trend: Baby Leg Warmers

bumGenius Baby Leg Warmers

The 1980’s are known for many style trends. Mostly, we want to forget them, but there are a few that have made comebacks. Leg warmers are definitely one of those trends. Luckily, baby leg warmers have become popular and they’re much cuter than acid wash jeans. One of the fun things about cloth diapers is that you can find some really cute cloth diaper prints and colors, like the Genius Series or prints available in the Cloth Diaper Collectors Club. Many parents fall in love with the prints and want to collect them all or have special diapers for special occasions. The prints

Super Easy Salt Dough Ornaments

Inspiration for Super Easy Salt Dough Ornaments Some of the most memorable ornaments on our family Christmas Tree from when I was growing up are the salt dough ornaments my mom made with one of her friends before I was born. She always said they were super easy to make. I’ve always thought about making them myself and this year I decided to go for it. After all, hers have certainly lasted the test of time… 38ish years later (pictured here on white Christmas tree). I was slightly intimidated about making these myself. My sugar cookie attempts have never seemed

Shop Small Business Saturday

Shopping for a newborn or infant can be fun — whether you’re shopping for your own little one or another beloved baby in your life. But, it can also be a bit tricky! They’re not old enough to have specific interests like sports, characters, or even colors. And, if they have older siblings, they will inherit lots of hand-me-down toys, clothes, and more. You want to get them something fun or practical that they’ll use throughout their childhood, so here is a list of ideas to get you started! Start baby’s book collection. Baby will do little more than chew

Make your list and check it twice! There’s nothing worse than realizing you forgot to pick up a gift for someone. Don’t let this happen to you! Make a holiday shopping list now.

Gifts can quickly get out of control, so feel free to

 
Environmentally-Friendly Alternatives to Gift Wrap
November 30, 2017 3:10 pm | by

A designer by trade, I’ve always appreciated things presented in a stylish and unique way. Wrapping presents at Christmas is my favorite because there are so many ways to get creative, but at the end of the day, it’s shocking how much garbage the holiday produces. Paper Grocery Bag for Chic Gift Wrap A few years ago, as an effort to produce less paper waste (and save some coin), I started using brown paper grocery bags to do all my wrapping. I’ll use some upcycled yarn, twine, ribbon, or washi tape to brighten it up so it doesn’t just look

Boon Bento

Quick check in. The kids have been back to school for a few months now. Are you still packing their lunch with the enthusiasm you felt on their first day? I’m guessing the answer is probably no. My little guy has just started eating solid foods, and I am looking for ways to step up packing his lunch. That’s why I’m checking out the Boon Bento Lunch Box. Boon has been one of my favorite brands for a few years now. My kitchen couldn’t function without the Boon Lawn. I had the Boon Grass with my first, but decided to
