Red White and Zour® Necklace Candy Idea

Red White and Zour Candy Necklace #ZourFace

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, all opinions are my own. #CollectiveBias We like to spend July 4th week up at the lake fishing, jet skiing, and playing on the beach. We especially enjoy watching the fireworks set off at Cedar Point from where we are staying.

Our dog’s Purina One 28 Day Challenge

Purina One Smart Blend 28 Day Challenge

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Purina One, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #ONEDifference Right after Christmas in 2006 my husband and I adopted a sweet little white beagle, lab mix puppy and we named her Macy. Macy is a sweet little dog; she's definitely not the kind of dog that will protect our family (she may lick intruders to death, but that's about it), but she's gentle and playful and she's been amazing with each child we've added to our family. One thing we noticed right away with Macy was that she had a very sensitive stomach and would easily get sick if she … [Read more...]

Easy Mod Podge Plates


In case you missed it from a few weeks ago on Design Dazzle, here's my easy mod podge plates tutorial! It's a fun and easy idea for summer! As a kid growing up, my grandma was an avid crafter and one craft I ALWAYS associate with summer is the easy mod podge plates craft! My grandma would bring tons of fabric, mod podge, and clear plates and let us make my mom mod podge plates to decorate her kitchen with. As an adult, it's a fairly simple project, but as a kid I was always so proud to share my creation with my mom!! So when I thought SUMMER I thought this would be perfect!! Here's what you need: Clear plastic plates OR if you … [Read more...]

Ideas for Kids for When the Lights Go Out with Duracell

Ideas for Kids for When the Lights Go Out #PrepWithPower #shop

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #PrepWithPower #CollectiveBias Living in Central Ohio, we have had our fair share of bad storms over the years. It seems that at least once a year for the past few years we have experienced very bad windstorms that take down houses, power lines, trees, and more. Last year we had such a bad storm that it took a matter of days for the electric company to get the power back on. We had a neighbors trampoline from nearly 10 houses down land in our backyard!! After our experiences with several bad storms and a young child (now childREN) I … [Read more...]

Safe&Sound® VTech Baby Monitor Review

VTech Baby Monitor

Disclosure: I was provided compensation and a VTech Baby Monitor to review as part of a campaign with Mom It Forward; however, all word and opinions are my own and I'm really pleased with this product! When we had our baby in February we started talking about how we needed a new baby monitor. When we had our son, we had a very basic baby monitor that constantly made noise all night long and, long story short, drove me bonkers. Our daughter is almost five months old now and we're finally to the point that we feel she can move from her pack n play in our bedroom and start sleeping in her own room. Like any mom, that first transition to your … [Read more...]

Skirted Onesie Tutorial

Skirted Onesie Tutorial from The Cards We Drew

Hey guys! So most of you can tell, I'm not much of a seamstress. I don't do a lot of sewing projects on my blog, BUT I happen to have a mother who is a decent seamstress! I was in a little boutique a few weeks back and saw these cute basic onesies with little skirts sewn onto them. When I picked one up they had a $32 price tag!!!! The owner of the boutique started telling me how they just cut the onesie in half, sewed fabric into the onesie, and then reattached it!! So I called my mom and asked her if she could possibly do something like that. She ended up making two really cute onesie dresses!! After she did the first one I asked her to make … [Read more...]
