Time to start boo'ing

I flipped my calendar to October a day early, because I am SO EXCITED. Yes, it’s still over 100 degrees here, but we made pumpkin cream cheese at my daughter’s preschool today and I felt a breeze. So there. I’m in the fall spirit, and I’m ready to pass it on. I plan to package […]

Smart & Silky Foaming Hand Sanitizer

I think I found a hand sanitizer I don’t hate. I bought this Smart & Silky hand sanitizer at Target, and here’s why I like it. It foams, so no slimy gel rolling off the kids’ hands. It’s alcohol-free, so it doesn’t burn my cracked dry hands – or any scrapes the kids might have […]

Flap Happy Hats

Yes, I realize that much of the country is moving on from summer fashions, but here in Arizona, we’ve got plenty of sunshine, and a year-round need for sun hats. You may know of my love for Sunday Afternoon sunhats, but if you’re looking for something a wee bit more fashionable, you should take a […]

Cute hats at Target

I went to Target by myself today (a rare morning of “me” time), found some very cute hats and bought one. No, not that one, matey (no idea what’s up with the pirate hat). This one… Even though I’m not normally a hat person, I’ve been wanting a hat like this — especially since it’s […]

All Natural Play Clay

I’m a big fan of homemade playdough. But if you don’t have cream of tartar on hand, or don’t feel like cooking your dough, this “playclay” is a pretty good substitute. And since there’s no cooking involved, the kids can help make it. I tore out the recipe from this month’s Family Fun magazine, and […]

Hip & Affordable Throw Pillow Covers

I have had the same throw pillows on our couch FOREVER. I’d love to give them a makeover with a set of cushion covers from Maries Cosy Cushions. There are so many hip fabrics, and they’re all organized by color! The ones shown above are just a few of the choices in the Duck Egg […]

My New Shoes

I was admiring my mom’s new shoes the other day, and she told me she had gotten them from the Overstocks section of the Lands End website. So off I went and ordered myself a pair of these “Mary Jane Trekker” shoes. They arrived a few days ago, and I am loving them. I needed […]

Sorry to say, Sigg bottles contain BPA

Sorry to say, Sigg bottles contain BPA

Oh how I hate that this is true, but Sigg’s CEO posted a letter on their web site stating that the epoxy liners in their bottles produced before August 2008 contain trace amounts of BPA. Yes, these are the same bottles my kids have been drinking out of for years, and that I have given […]

Make a mini garland from paint chips

The last time I was in Pottery Barn Kids, I picked up a little paint swatch book. It was in a big basket and it was free. I wasn’t looking for a paint color, but I thought I could find a use for a book full of pretty little papers. After making garlands for the […]
