If there’s one thing that doesn’t go old in our house, it’s beads. My daughter loves making jewelry. As do I. And I thought, why not fill some clear plastic eggs with beads and string. It’s colorful. It’s shiny. It’s not as good as candy, […]
Pumpkin season is the best season. Because I can make pumpkin biscuits like these and mini oatmeal pumpkin muffins like these. What a perfect little healthy bite-sized muffin for tots and kids. Instead of butter or oil, I opted to use unsweetened applesauce. Whole wheat flour. […]
It’s that time of year again. My favorite time of year that is!
And all that comes with it.
Including, the crisper air, the cooler nights and of course all of my fall i-n-s-p-i-r-a-t-i-o-n-s. Here’s my list from last year. And here is — to now.
Rich, fine, luxe velvet. Pup included.
Easy to make, kid-friendly pumpkin pie pops.
Beautiful AND delicious apple cranberry stuffing.
Warm, ankle Sorel boots.
Shearling everything. In every color. Every room.
Minimal rosemary wreath table place cards.
And, last but not least —
This delicious looking cranberry Moscow Mule.

There are two things I never buy. One, is Granola. And the other, is Granola bars. I’d much prefer to make my own. Here’s my go-to healthy granola recipe. And here’s a new super healthy granola bite recipe that I just discovered! They look and taste […]
When I was in the hospital last summer, where I underwent unexpected emergency brain surgery, I spent my days recovering ordering only pudding and popsicles from the hospital menu. Little did I know that everything that I was ordering was being tracked and recorded, which […]
Except when it comes to crafts.
I love EVERYTHING about it. And ALL of its colorful clutter.
For every occasion, (Halloween, Christmas, Easter etc…) I binge buy anything holiday related so that my daughter can create anything she desires.
Shiny Beads & String.
Giant Pom Poms. Yarn. Paper. Glitter.
Masks & Fuzzy Stickers…
I mean, this is just some of the stuff.
Usually, to keep all of it somewhat orderly and at bay, I organize everything into bowls and glass jars. I then lay them out on our table for easy access. Subsequently, while trying to find some bowls to hold all of my addictions — I came across this NIFTY little video. (You have to click to watch how cool and easy they make it look.) And decided to try and make similar glitter bowls in Halloween themed colors to hold everything together.

All you need is some Mod Podge, Foam brushes, balloons and glitter.
Mix the mod podge and glitter half and half. Paint thick coats, 3-4 layers, letting them dry couple hours in between. My 5 yr. old was totally able to handle this.
Once dried overnight, pop the balloon, trim the edges and TADA!
You can make them big or small depending on how big you make your balloon.
They are obviously not that sturdy, or at least mine weren’t, but will definitely hold steady for the month of October. And my daughter has an entire month of Halloween to get messy and go crazy creating, crafting and letting her imagination take over – Wild.

Happy month of Halloween!
