Category: Mom Buzz (Page 2 of 7)




Thomas is my big creator, and he loves making key chains, bracelets, necklaces, and all sorts of different things for himself, his friends, his family, and even his plush critters. This year, he’s going to be REALLY excited to receive the Beados Teeneez collection under the tree this year so he can explore his creative side over the Christmas break from school.

EXPO and Sharpie

EXPO Dry Erase Markers and all things Sharpie have been a staple in our home for many years. Some are used for fun while others have more of a function to perform.

Centerpieces for Fall, Thanksgiving & Halloween

Crafting Versatile Fall Centerpieces

Crafting is something that I used to do for hours but at some point along the way I lost my mojo. Recently, I got inspired to make something just by walking by an object.

Forgive me for my absence, but September is a bittersweet month for me. Back-to-School is an exciting time for me because I don’t get a break from the kids during the summer. I look forward to simple things, like being able to have a bath uninterrupted, grocery shopping on my own, and vacuuming without my youngest two fighting over who gets to help me first.
