New Year Stitch Fix Review + Giveaway!

I’m back with my latest Stitch Fix Review and…a GIVEAWAY!

This Stitch Fix box was a fun one. It’s been super cold and grey here in the Northwest so I was looking for layers and comfy pieces, with pops of color. I also requested a pair of sneakers and some black distressed jeans. While I had some fit issues, I loved these selections my stylist made for me.

How to Make a Solar Night Light

Today I’m sharing the easiest little DIY project that you can do with your kids. I came up with this solar night light idea because my four-year old daughter is scared of the dark and we’ve tried so many things to help her sleep at night, but she still sleeps with her bedside light on. I don’t think this is good for her so we worked together to make a little solar night light that she could put on her nightstand instead. She had so much fun putting it together and of course my boys wanted one too.

DIY Art Caddy

I am constantly inspired by all the great organization tips I see on blogs and Pinterest, and I am so happy to share with you my solution to organizing all my kids art supplies with this DIY Art Caddy. I love it because it is functional, but it also looks great when it is out on our dining room table (which is pretty much every day!)

I got the idea over at Clean Mama. If you don’t already follow her, run over and check her out right now. She’s amazing.

Anyway, she had a homework caddy she made using mason jars and a utensil bin, and I loved the idea. Such a pretty, but simple way to keep all that stuff together.

Thank You Cards for Kids

One thing mama always said, was how important sending thank you cards is. Every year, after Christmas or a birthday, we sat down to write thank you cards for each of our gifts received and for celebrating the special days with us.

I’m trying to pass this on to my kids, as later on if they have an important job interview, receive a special gift or help, or have a big life event like a graduation or wedding, I want them to feel comfortable writing out their thanks and appreciation.

Right now, my kids are little and so I have created these special thank you cards for kids, with fill-in the blank spaces that are simple but sweet. It teaches them the importance of not just saying thank you, but being specific about why they appreciate what they received.
