I’m a bookworm and love sharing book reviews with you when the chance comes my way, especially when it comes to children’s Christmas books! Today we are chatting about the book Sam’s Christmas Wish by George Durrant. Here’s the synopsis: Sam Edwards isn’t looking forward to Christmas, at least not this year. Since losing his job six months before, he hasn’t had any luck in finding a new one. He isn’t sure how he can give his family a merry Christmas, and the last thing he wants is charity from his neighbors. But when he falls asleep in his living Continue Reading →

How to: Fresh Eggs for Giving (plus a Blendtec giveaway)

bookcase`1

Way back in August I showed you the birthday room reveal we put together for my daughter. It’s been a few months since then and I wanted to do an update on how things are going, specifically how the new furniture we got is holding up. I picked out a few pieces of furniture from the Sauder’s website (this bookcase and this toy chest) and in the middle of the night we took down a baby crib and put together a whole new room for my daughter. We moved her from her old bedroom into her new one while she Continue Reading →

Birthday Room Reveal Update

God_Bless_Us_Everyone

Some time this year I got on a magical email list. What kind of magical list you might ask? Well, it’s one that sends out opportunities to review new books before their official release! I know this is a food blog but I love books. I’ve received two dozen or so emails this year with press releases for books that I could review here, but none of them were books that I thought you all would enjoy so I passed. Then September rolled around and Christmas books started to find their way into my inbox. Not just any Christmas books Continue Reading →

fall art 2

I can’t believe the first day of fall was yesterday! We walked to school and there was a definite chill in early morning air. I’m going to have to dig out some hats and jackets for the baby before I know it. To celebrate I have a really fun and simple craft for kids. I decided to send both Henry and Kimball to preschool this year (two hours, two times a week), and I decided to put them in separate classes. So four afternoons a week one or the other goes to preschool and one stays home with me and Continue Reading →

lunch

Today isn’t just lunch box inspiration, it’s also a giveaway of some really fun lunch box gear and products to get you excited for the coming school year! Keep reading, it’s a long post :) I’m always looking for fun new ways to pack a lunch and I thought I’d share some inspiration with you today. I don’t make crazy intricate lunches often, but once in a while I get overly motivated or Macey needs a little sunshine in her lunch box and I’ll go wild with creativity. Things like this are fun when you want them to be fun, Continue Reading →

land's end11

This is my last post for Lands’ End and I just have to say this whole thing has been so much fun for my kids and I. It’s not every day that that some food loving hobby farmer (and her future little farmers) in the middle of no where get to be included in such fanciness. Thank you so much for enjoying the journey with me. Here’s what’s in it for you. I hope that I’ve given you some knowledge about what Lands’ End in has to offer us mommas of school aged kids (great quality clothes that are a Continue Reading →

Melissa Lands Ends

Sometimes my mother heart is just leaping out of my chest with excitement over the things my kids are doing. You know what I mean! Watching the ball soar on that amazing home run hit, the first time they sing a solo at church, or their tiny little voices at the school play. So rewarding. Well today is one of those days. I never wanted to have my kids be child models, but who doesn’t want their kids to be child models. #braggingrightsforyears Ok, ok, so they aren’t really child models but don’t they look like it? I’ve just been Continue Reading →

My kids are CHILD MODELS! You should come see :)

lands end 2

When we moved to the middle of no where a little over a year ago I knew that I would be sacrificing a few things in exchange for so many positive things. I left behind health food stores, museums, parks, and libraries. I gained land to grow a garden, a community like no other to raise my kids in, and a slower way of life that I am grateful for. I’ve found lots of hikes, sand dunes, and our little town pool to fill our recreational need. The bookmobile (a mobile library of sorts) stops by twice a month to Continue Reading →

birthday surprises1

My daughter turned 7 last week and I had a grand surprise up my sleeve. I’ve been wanting to change around our sleeping setup for sometime to better accommodate the needs of our family. It’s time for Macey to get her own room and for the little boys to share the bunk bed. My thinking when it comes to things like this is, if I’m going to go through the effort, it might as well be a gift or party. I decided to make the affair a birthday surprise that won’t soon be forgotten. Unbeknownst to Macey, I’d been prepping Continue Reading →

Summer is the perfect time to get outside and get active with your kids. The keyword in that sentence is with. Just sending your kids outside isn’t the same. I’m talking about you physically being outside with them. They’ll love doing things with you and the attention that you are giving them. You’ll love that they aren’t idling their day away in front of a screen and you might even like the added exercise for yourself, sunshine on your face, and the decreased mess inside the house. I think that kids want to be outside having adventures and building memories, Continue Reading →

10 Tips to Get Outside with your Kids EVERYDAY this summer. You can do it!

bubble art for preschool kids

The weather is glorious, so let’s get outside and play a little. A few weeks ago we had friends over and created some amazing blown bubble art. The concept is simple – use food coloring to dye a few bottles of store-bought bubbles different colors and then blow bubbles onto card stock. When the bubbles land and pop they leave behind a gorgeous colored bubble print! The kids loved blowing the bubbles and they were even more surprised when it created a masterpiece to take home. Blown Bubble Art What you need: Store bought bubbles (a jar per child is Continue Reading →

pirate

Rrrrrrrrrrr you a pirate loving family?! We sure are. I go on lots of adventures with my little boys during the day. We run away from dinosaurs and cheetahs, we are good ninjas who fight “meanie bad guys”, we jump over hot lava, and we are excellent treasure hunting pirates. Grandma gave all of my kids a little bag of gold chocolate coins for St. Patrick’s Day and I’m pretty sure my kids don’t know that there is chocolate hiding inside! We have been using them as pirate treasure all week instead of eating them. I have the kids stay Continue Reading →

I’ve been dying to shares today’s project and it is finally done! I made an instagram photo display out of an old wooden screen door that I found behind the house. FOUND! And the end result is gorgeous. And I’ll show you how to make one of your own too. No old wooden screen doors hanging around? A big frame from the thrift store would work the same. I adore instagram (do you follow me?!). It’s such a fun way to document the every day. And what I love even more is having all of those memories printed and on Continue Reading →

DIY Instagram Photo Display

backdrops

I’ve been in desperate need of a new photo backdrop for a long long time. I use the same wooden cutting board that I got at IKEA two years ago over and over and over again. I get crazy and bust out a place mat, a cookie sheet, or just use my retro blue counter tops on occasion, but I’m starting to feel like all of my photos look exactly the same. Photo props and backdrops to food bloggers are like shoes to other women. You can never have too many :) Can you see that same board in all Continue Reading →

bird feeder

This is such a fun little project and I’ve been looking forward to sharing it with you. If you haven’t noticed yet, we have a soft spot in our family for little friends, especially the feathered kind. May came home from kindergarten with a whole page of color photos of birds that are native to Southern Utah and was asked to help with some kind of state-wide bird watch/counting. She’s supposed to keep track of what we see and how many and report back in a few months. It’s been such a fun assignment! We made these simple DIY bird Continue Reading →

Did you all know that Hobby Farms (a magazine to most folks) also has an awesome website? They just launched a craft section of their website called The Craft Hub. I’ve been writing posts for them since September but have been terrible about letting you know. Today I posted some really cute Personalized Magnet Clips that are the perfect way to use photos of friends and family that came with Christmas cards. Enjoy those smiles year round!

hot cocoa blessthismess

Christmas is in the air and I know I’m not the only one thinking about what to give all the people that I love. We just moved to the tiny town that my husband grew up in. Tiny town life means two things 1) we know and are friends with nearly everyone or 2) we are related to everyone else. My list for friends and neighbor gifts is huge this year so I’ve been pondering on the perfect thing to give that won’t break the bank. That’s where this adorable hot cocoa gift set comes in. All of the jars, Continue Reading →

I can’t believe that Christmas is almost here! If you are like me you are putting the finishing touches on the house, baking all kinds of treats, and buying the last of your gifts. This year I was lucky enough to snag an American Girl doll on a major sale. I paid less than $60 (including shipping!) for the doll, first book, and an extra set of clothes. I’m beyond excited to give such a wonderful gift to my six-year-old. She is going to be so excited on Christmas morning because she’s been asking for a “big doll” for months Continue Reading →

For years I have wanted to open an Etsy shop and now it’s something I can check off that list! This Christmas my awesome cousin, Kaber, and I are working together to sell some really fun and really gorgeous laser cut wood ornaments. Kaber runs the laser and I run the shop (photographing, managing, mailing, ect…). We talk all of the time about designs and ideas. The shop has been open for about a week and I’m so pleased to say that we’ve already made a handful of sales! I thought I’d do a little advertising here so that you Continue Reading →

Great things are meant to be shared. That’s what this post is… me telling you about something I think is great because I know you are going to love it too. Our family pictures were supposed to be taken today but we got rained out (and it’s way too cold to take a three-week old baby out!). But that isn’t stopping me from thinking about our Christmas cards! I adore sending snail-mail cards, especially at Christmas. Who doesn’t love real mail? And I know my grandparents appreciate getting pictures of the grand-kids to hang on their fridge. Do you take Continue Reading →

mummy bag for ribbon retreat

Last week I did a fun guest post over at The Ribbon Retreat. The Ribbon Retreat is an Idaho-based company that sells all lovely things sewing… not just ribbon! I met them at a blogging conference this spring and finally got around to doing a little work with them. They sent me all the supplies for this awesome project (and more!) and I went to town. I need a sign on my craft room door that says “will sew for pretty fabric” because it is so true! So thanks a million Ribbon Retreat… I can’t wait to work on our Continue Reading →

Summer is upon us and I feel like there are a million reasons to make t-shirts. I”m sure you have some of the same reasons to craft up a t-shirt as I do. You probably have summer camps, VBS, Cub Scout camp, family reunions, vacations, and sports to attend on top of all of the fun holidays like the Fourth of July and your towns annual Strawberry Days. Why not let your kids make some of the t-shirts on their own this year? I posted a freezer paper stencil tutorial last year and I’m used the same method again this Continue Reading →

If you’ve been reading the blog for very long you know that I quite like my mom, who I call Momma (really). She’s a wonderfully genuine woman who taught me how to appreciate what I’ve been given, make do or do without, and if you don’t know how to do it – figure it out. She’s thrifty, smart, and a true ninja when it comes to the sewing machine. She’s been working on a big project for a few months now and asked if I would share it here with you all. She was so sincere when she asked. She Continue Reading →

Easter Scavenger hunt

I did a shout-out yesterday on my FB page for a little Easter scavenger hunt help. My mother-in-law had an idea but we were having a terrible time finding what we were looking for on the internet. We gave up on our search and decided to work on one of our own. It turned out great and I thought I’d share! We took the kids down into a canyon for a wienie roast and they did the scavenger hunt while we got things set up. Before they started we talked about Easter, how exciting and fun it was, and then Continue Reading →

Spring Paper Rabbits

There are two things that you all know I love: my hutch and spring. Yesterday the two met in happy merriment as I decorated my hutch with spring in mind. I just have to share the pictures with you because they make me happy. That’s not the only thing making me happy today either. My good friend from Becca Marie Designs is helping me with a giveaway today! I’ve been so in love with her rabbit paper dolls that she sells in her Etsy shop lately. And lucky for us, she’s been kind enough to agree to give away some bunnies Continue Reading →

20 Valentine's Day ideas worth sharing

I confessed my love of Valentine’s Day and some of my favorite (and funny) Valentine’s Day memories last week, and I thought it would be fun to bring you a collection of ideas for Valentine’s Day to get you as excited as I am. I asked some of the other ladies who are contributing at I Heart Nap Time to send me the links to their favorite Valentine’s Day posts, and boy did they deliver. Here are some of my favorite and their favorite Valentine projects. Enjoy! Valentines to Give: Felt Valentine Fortune Cookies from Love, Pomegranate House Bubbles Valentine from Bloom Continue Reading →

Remember when I showed you my cute hutch decorated for Valentines? Well I mentioned that my kids did the art work at the top. I thought I’d show you how in case you wanted to make something similar.

Hello! Man, once again, it’s been such a busy week on the blog and I didn’t even post every day. Manually inputting all my recipes is a beast. I’ve been doing that along with reformatting each post from the last year. I took the cheap-skate route for switching to WordPress and that means I’ve needed to put in a lot of my own hours to make things look ok. Phew, it’ll be done by Valentine’s Day I hope. Speaking of Valentine’s Day, do you decorate? The kids and I normally make a few things to hang up, but I’ve never Continue Reading →

My kids love to craft; I’ve trained them well. I wanted them to make some fun things for a friend we visit at the care center in town, for grandma, to send my mom in the mail, and to hang on our fridge. We ended up with a couple of different fun projects that I wanted to share. I also like to have a few fun crafts ready for all of the cousins to work on while dinner is coming together on Thanksgiving Day, so some of these were our trial run for Turkey Day. A few weeks ago I Continue Reading →

I made a mini-bucket list at the beginning of the year of 12 things that I wanted to do in 2012. Here is one of the twelve: 7. Send my sister a super fun and unique package. She is serving a mission for our church in Argentina. I miss that girl and she needs to know it! I wonder what fun things a Sister in Argentina might need. She is pretty random, so I’ve been wanting to send something really odd. I just haven’t decided what it is yet. My dream is to send her a chicken foot or a dehydrated lizard; Continue Reading →

DIY No-Sew Pumpkin Backpack

We’ve been crafting up a storm lately and I thought I’d clump a bunch of the kid projects into one great post.    I’ve definitely trained my kids well when it comes to crafting, and even my three-year-old boy can spend hours cutting, gluing, and drawing at the table next to me. Who needs TV shows when you have glue?! 1. Rainbow Pumpkins We adore magazines and one of our favorites is Oriental Trading. We can spend hours looking at all the fun things for sale. Oriental Trading had these nifty black pumpkins that you can scratch off the black to make a face Continue Reading →

If homemade Halloween costumes were on the application for Mother of the Year Award then I think I might win. I adore homemade Halloween costumes and have made them with love each year. I thought I’d share costumes of Halloween past to help get your juices flowing and to show you that they don’t have to be super complicated. We’ve already had many dinner discussions about this years’ costumes because things this cute sure don’t make themselves. One hard thing about the kids getting bigger is that they have opinions of their own, which means they want to be something different every Continue Reading →

Hey all. Yesterday I posted a truly great Pineapple Zucchini Bread recipe and used washi tape to make it look great. There’s a great giveaway going on too in which you could win 10 free rolls of washi tape from Downtown Tape. Just visit yesterday’s post (HERE) to enter. Now, if the nummy zucchini bread didn’t convince you of your need for washi tape in your life, then this post surely will. Here is a great way to spruce up some of those homemade canned foods.

I’m so excited to share this little project with you! Did you know that you can make a super easy painted shirt using freezer paper as a stencil? The beauty of the freezer paper is when ironed on to the shirt, it sticks. The stencil lines comes out nice and crisp. My favorite part is that once I get the stencil on, I can let my kids paint it. They love to help and this controls the chaos well. How to: Painted Shirt with a Freezer Paper Stencil What you’ll need: Freezer paper (sold near the plastic wrap and foil) Continue Reading →

I hope summer is treating you right and you are as excited for the 4th of July as I am. One of my favorite parts of the summer season is all of the parades.

I’ve been working super hard this week getting ready for Girls Camp which is next week. Girls camp is a yearly outing of all the young women from church who are 12-18 years old. There are about 20 girls from my congregation (or ward in Mormon-speak) who meet up with other young women in the area, totaling around 200 girls for the camp. We are making an hour an a half drive into the mountains to find a little serenity and to hide all of our hootenannies.I grew up attending camp and loved it, so I am more than happy to help out now that Continue Reading →

More Scrap Fabric Baskets

My baby sister turned 15 last month. I’m still in shock over that number; I remember the day she was born. I sent her a cute owl purse that I made for Christmas and I wanted to make a little insert of types to go with it for her birthday. The thinking behind this was that you can attach it to the handle of the purse and then have quick access to the things that are most important: phone, key, chapstick. The owl insert is actually made to fit a smart phone, because my sister is fancy like that, but Continue Reading →

It’s done! It’s finally done! I now own the kitchen hutch of my dreams. I’ve been wanting, craving, a hutch for years, and now I own it. I’m beyond pleased with how it turned out. I bought this beauty at a garage sale last Saturday for $50. It’s large. Very, very large. It’s just shy of five feet wide and almost seven feet tall. The whole thing is wood except for the back panel which is a laminate panel. Before: After: I did some serious research in preparation to paint this hutch. The most useful site that I found was Centsational Girl. Continue Reading →

How to Paint Furniture without sanding

Happy Friday! I hope the weekend is full of productivity and some tasty treats for you. It’s been almost 6 weeks since we’ve worked on the house. That’s over a month! Tomorrow will be our first day back at it and I couldn’t be more excited. We plan to finish sanding the drywall and hope to texture all of the walls and ceilings tomorrow. If that gets done, we can paint; painting is something I can help with so it might actually get done in a timely manner. :) Anyone else planning on being productive this weekend? What do you have planned? Continue Reading →

Happy Tuesday! Things are so cheerful at my house today. The sun is shining, the babies are happy, and we made my favorite chocolate chips cookies last night for Family Night so they’ve been around to snack on today. A day with chocolate chips cookies just can’t be a bad day, can it?! I am totally consumed by my first major project to sell in an Etsy shop. I am creating a PDF pattern for some adorable stuffed animal baby toys I created. I know that I can do this, but the learning curve is still so steep. Doing things the first time Continue Reading →

Fabric Easter Bunny2

Easter is just a few days away but you still have time to make some thoughtful gifts. My mother-in-law is making the little granddaughters Easter dresses and I made them each a bunny to match the dress. They turned out well and I know the girlies will love them. The idea comes from Ginger Cake. This is the same blog that I got the idea for my owl purses from. She’s a genius. You can buy a PDF pattern for the bunnies (or owls). The pattern is emailed to you after you purchase it, so you can buy it now and still Continue Reading →

Easter Bunny Inspiration

Preschool was great today. My theme for the week is bugs and my letter is B. We made bugs blowing in the breeze and the kids loved it. Too cute not to share… I started out by having some die-cuts of the letter B made. I had a friend do it for me at the eementary school. I know there are scrapbook stores and libraries that have die-cut machines that you can pay-per-punch to use. Just ask around. I’m sure there are all kinds of fancy cutting machines that would do this too. I cut the bodies for the bugs, Continue Reading →
