Chalkboard Art for the Non-Artist

April 21, 2016

Have you ever seen those gorgeous chalkboard art pieces that float around pinterest and wished you could have that kind of talent? ME TOO. 

I am not a traditional artist, at all. Give me a pencil and a piece of paper and anything I come up with is going to look like a 3rd grader drew it. My kindergarten class frequently comes up with drawings far better than mine. 

I am however, pretty good with graphic art on the computer, and so I've found a way around my lack of artistic talent. Here's the process I used to make a piece of chalkboard art for my sons birthday, step-by-step. 

Earth Day Explorers {a year of creative playdates}

April 15, 2016

This post contains affiliate links to some of our craft supplies, but I only promote products I love! 

Hold onto your hats friends, this is my favorite playdate yet! There's no better way to celebrate our Earth than by getting out and exploring it, so we packed our bags and took this playdate to our local State park. The weather was perfect and everyone had a great time! 

Toddler Eats: Meaty Bowties

April 13, 2016

As promised in our round-up of favorite toddler meals, here is the recipe for Meaty Bowties. This was one of our favorite meals long before little man was born because it's so easy to make and so delicious! It was such a relief when he started solids and loved this dish! We continue to make it often as it's cheap, easy, and quick to put together after a long day at work.
