The 12 Days of Christmas: Parenting Edition

When I was a kid I always thought that having 12 days of Christmas would be pretty magical. I never wanted turtle doves of partridges in pear trees, but the sheer idea of twelve days of gifts? Sign me up! I still think it would be a pretty cool idea, but how that I’m a parent my list of wishes for a 12 days of Christmas wish list would be a little different and most of them don’t even cost a dime! Are there any you would add to your list?

Easy DIY for Busy Moms: Living Evergreen Holiday Wreath

Being the mom of two toddlers equates to not having very much time for all of the crafty projects I wish I could sink my hands into. What I do manage to tackle, for the pure enjoyment that my crafty soul yearns for – usually happens when they are sleeping. Unless it is an activity that we can do together.

Last weekend I whipped up this gorgeous evergreen wreath and I was so pleased at how little time it took to make…

Basq for the Holidays (A Sale!)

In the past, my own holiday wish list has seen many requests: new sweaters, warm boots, updated decor — everyday indulgences that I’d never commit to splurging for, always finding an excuse to spend our hard-earned money elsewhere.

Now, as a mother, the tables have turned as my wish list carries just one theme: Rest. Products to pamper, pillows to fluff, slippers to don. It seems my sleep-deprived subconscious is begging for a holiday season that requires nothing more than fresh sheets and a long nap. Surely I’m not alone? The good news is this:

Easy DIY: Celtic Knot Wool Headbands for Mom & Baby!

Head-wraps and headbands. The saving grace of many a busy mama come early morning school drop-offs and/or strolls to the park. As a mother with long, finicky hair, there just isn’t enough time everyday to primp and preen in the mirror. I’m all about quick, good-looking accessories that help draw attention away from the fact that maybe I didn’t have time to wash my hair that day.

Now that the cold weather is upon us (where I live anyway), warmth is also important. So I hacked this Celtic knot head-warmer that I’ve been seeing a lot of (and adore) thinking ahead to some of the gifts I’d like to make for family and friends. I especially love that these headbands look adorable on babies and toddlers too, making this a wonderful gift to make for new moms and their little gals!
