Thursday Holiday Craft Day

Okay, so last week I said that I would be posting every Thursday about frugal and fun Holiday craft and decorating ideas. If you follow me you know that I am super excited for the Holidays, and it's all I can do not to get my Christmas tree out!! But I am going to start with Thanksgiving...

So my sister and I are going to make Thanksgiving t-shirts this year for our kids (Aubrey, 5, Malachi, 4, Payton, 2, Caitlyn, 9 months). I found brown short sleeved t-shirts for the girls for $3 at Wal-Mart and I like them better than other t-shirts because they are frilly on the sleeves. We are just going to wear long-sleeved t-shirts underneath. I will post pictures of the shirt making process and final product when they are done, which will hopefully be with in the week.

One website that I have found is Enchanted Learning. I am going to be using this site frequently through the coming months. They have many different crafts of many different levels for children. Payton loves to do crafts, and I enjoy bonding with her this way! This picture below is just one of the projects that we'll be doing, and there are so many more!!
If you have an awesome website or you have a post related to this topic please link up and share ideas!!


I have been wanting to sit down and compose my thoughts since my Grandpa passed away last Friday and this is the first chance that I've had to do so.

Death, unfortunately, gets me thinking. About life. I just want to make sure that I don't take any moment for granted.

With my kids I have been finding myself getting really short on patience lately. Payton (my 2-year-old) is starting to test the waters with me and I have not been as loving or full of grace as I need to be. And I know these years are going to fly by. They already have! I can't believe that Payton is 2, going on 20! So I am resolving to continue down the path of training up my children to behave, but to do so with with grace for them. I want to make sure I have enough playing and laughing time too.

I have also thought about all the things that I would like to say to people that I haven't said. My dad wanted to talk with my Grandpa one last time and he wasn't able to. So I started thinking about what I would want to say to my dad if he passed away unexpectedly. I want to make sure he hears these things before it's too late.

I know that many of us have had moments like this. Where we sit and really reflect on life. I want to make sure that I take these reflections and really apply them to my life. I want to live each moment to it's fullest, enjoying everything that Papa has for me and my family! I want to make sure that I share Papa's love with everyone, and not be afraid to speak the truth out. I want everyone I love to know how much I love them, and I want them to know how much God loves them.

So I am going to live the life that Papa has for me! I am going to love for Him and live for Him.

Thursday Project: Getting Excited for the Holidays!

As I am sure you all know a lot of stores are starting to get Christmas stuff out already. And you know what?? I am excited for it! I don't know if it is because I will have another child to share it with this year but I am so super excited for both Thanksgiving and Christmas!

I truly want to create a magical experience for my children, but I want to make sure it doesn't revolve around materials things. I want to bring our family more into focus, and treasure our memories of the holidays for years to come.

That being said I am trying to think about fun and frugal decorating and craft ideas. So, if you have any ideas leave me a comment, and you can link back to your own blog if you have a post on fun and frugal ideas. I will be posting every Thursday from now until Christmas a project, idea, or website that I have found.

Product Review: Graco Duo Glider Deluxe Double Stroller

Okay, so I really want to start reviewing products for companies. I have been doing some research and I found an article that said that I should start by reviewing the products I already have. So I am starting with my double stroller!
I have found this stroller very easy to use, and I like it a lot. The maneuverability on it is unexpected. It's no feat to push a stroller through narrow clothes racks and rows while shopping, but I have found this stroller corners very well. It also is a very smooth ride, and is not to heavy to push.

The only thing that I would classify as a fault with this stroller is how bulky it is for storing. I have to take the front tray and canopy off in order to fit it into my car. But I think the ease of use makes up for this. And I have a small car so I would probably run into this problem with any stroller that I had.

So if you are out there looking for a double stroller I highly recommend this one!

I did not receive payment for reviewing this product. If you would like me to review a product please contact me at
