Our Happily Ever After Printables

Our Happily Ever After

I saw a photo similar to this on Pinterest (the link has since been broken – boo!) about six months ago. The moment I saw it I immediately started planning to have one taken of our family. I can not wait to have it printed on a giant canvas for our living room! I love…

Dr. Seuss Teacher Appreciation Week

Dr. Seuss Themed Teacher Appreciation Week

This year I volunteered to chair the Hospitality Committee at Zoë’s school. Honestly, I jumped at the opportunity. I have no desire whatsoever to be on the PTSA board, but I want to contribute in a meaningful way at her school. It was a win-win. The main event of the year for the Hospitality Committee…

Homemade Household Cleaners

Earth Day is celebrated in a big way at our house. In years past we have planted our garden, taken our batteries to the library for recycling, taken large electronics to be recycled, pretty much everything except unplugging from the digital world. That is crazy talk! You should have seen the look on Zoë’s face…

Living with Your Photos - Favorite Slideshows

Favorite Photo Slideshows

I mentioned yesterday that I have never printed my favorite family photos. I can hear the gasps of horror as the scrapbooking community reads this. Before you make me turn in my scrapbooker card (the cooler version of a man card, ha!) let me explain. We live in a wonderful world filled with technology. My…

Pixie Hollow Playroom

Last year, I began transforming the cubby under the stairs into Pixie Hollow. I spent hours in there painting landscapes and attaching artificial flowers and vines to create a magical place for Zoë and Eden to play. They loved it, but I really should have known better than to attach large sunflowers and strawberries to…

Creating a Photo Storybook for your Children

Some of the greatest gifts I have ever given my girls are their photo storybooks. They are not just photo books, oh no! (OK, they kind of are.) They are photo books written to be read like an age appropriate storybook. I started this tradition almost five years ago with Zoë, and now Eden is…

Creating an Art Book for Your Child

I live with two crafty little ladies. They love to color, paint, and draw pictures. They color and home. They color at school. I have PILES of artwork in drawers, stacked on bookshelves, in my office, displayed on the wall. It is everywhere and it drives me crazy. Don’t get me wrong. I love to…

What To Do With Christmas Cards

I love receiving Christmas cards. Love it! I love hearing from our family and friends and seeing photos of their children. The holiday season is the one time of year  I regularly check our mailbox. I kid you not. I usually head out to the box only after our grumpy mail man knocks on the…

Baby Life

Baby Life was the first sub-category of Life in Photos I created. The most frequent comment I heard about my School of Life collection was, “I wish you had something like this for my baby!” and I completely agreed. I wished I had something like that for my baby. When Zoë was an only child…
