DIY: Handprint Menorah

I totally wish I could take credit for coming up with the idea for this project, but I didn’t. A woman I interviewed for a story on interfaith families told me her son had made a menorah out of handprints at his preschool, and I thought that was such a cute idea. It was definitely …

DIY: Salt Scrub

I don’t know about you, but I used to spend a good bit of money buying body scrubs off Etsy. Then, I realized that I could make the same thing myself with items I most likely already had on hand, saving myself a good chunk of money. So, I made myself a salt scrub. I …

DIY: Homemade Picture Frame

I am a big fan of homemade gifts. I love making gifts for other people (which is much easier now that we have a munchkin!), and I think they appreciate it more than something I just went to the store and bought. I feel like it shows more thought. One year for my grandmother-in-law’s birthday, …

This is a great fall craft. I’ve been wanting a pumpkin to put by my front door for the fall, but I really hadn’t found any premade pumpkins at craft stores that I really liked. I’m kind of picky when it comes to thinks like that, so I figured I’d be better off making one …

Recipe: Tabbouleh

I haven’t always been a fan of tabbouleh, but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve developed a taste for it, and it’s really something I like to eat. It’s  pretty healthy for you as the wheat that makes up the bulk of the dish only has 50 calories per half cup. So, it’s something I can …

DIY: Necklace Hanger

My jewelry is a mess. Most of it just lays on my husband’s dresser because I have several long necklaces, and I haven’t really been able to find anyway to really organize them short of buy an expensive jewelry armoire. I bought a necklace hanger off Amazon a few weeks ago, but a lot of …

DIY: Taggie

This is a great project for those of you who are expecting or who have newborn babies. When my daughter, Lucy, was an infant, a lot of my friends had taggie blankets for their babies. Taggies are great because babies get a feel for different textures with the tags sewn to the sides of the blankets. I …
