Today was Crazy Hat and Hair Day for Mini Mug at school. I knew I wanted to make her something fun and different, and thought that a Roblox hat would be that perfect something. Mini Mug is a huge fan. Here was my inspiration…

I have been trying to be more conscience about the amount of trash we produce as a family, and I realized one of the big contributors was paper towels. I purchased these cloths from Trader Joe’s and had been keeping one on the counter behind our sink.
Reaching for that, instead of a paper towel was definitely reducing our waste, but I was not a fan of the rag just laying there next to our faucet. Keep on reading!
^^ That’s a 6 year old Mr. Mug. Isn’t he adorable?
Inspired by the mini calendar stand I made at the beginning of the month, I wanted to make a small stand to use for photos, or small artwork and notes the Mini Mug makes. She’s been mastering her writing and leaves post-it notes around the house. Some of them are too adorable not to save and display. Keep on reading!
Mini Mug wanted to “craft something like the wrapping paper thing you made”. So I pulled out a box of cardboard scraps I had been saving and let her at it. Keep on reading…
If you purchase your wine like the Mugs, it comes 12 bottles at a time and those bottles are in a box with a molded protector that holds them safe from breaking.
These are the PERFECT way to store your Christmas tree ornaments. The trays stack nicely and the box holds them neatly. Each box will hold at least 36, smaller non-breakable ornaments can go 2 to 3 in a section. Keep on reading…
What better a way to start the new year then with a new calendar. Using my new favorite supply, the craft stick, I created a small calendar stand and designed a month-at-a-glance calendar printable that is ready to download below.
Each year, when the holidays wind down, I am inspired to organize and refresh. I make a mental list of the items I want to tackle and more often than not, I don’t get around to them. Well not this year! Mug is going to make organization easy.
First on my list – I realized I was in need of a better storage solution for the rolls of wrap I had left.
The Mugs are hosting Christmas dinner and we will be having 9 people at our table. I thought it would be a festive touch to add place cards to our setting. The design is a modern interpretation of a tree – with accents of silver and wood.

My mother-in-law introduced me to this project. I saw them a few years ago while visiting for the holidays and was immediately draw to their modern style. I loved their simplicity and how you could create a whole forrest if you wanted to. She had hers coated in sparky glitter. I chose to keep mine naked because I like the graphic quality of the pages. Plus, having to not vacuum up glitter sounded nice.
Fun, festive and fast. These ornaments really couldn’t be simpler to make and add a pop of holiday color to your tree.
I used the hot glue for the pom-pom ornament and the white glue for the yarn one. My favorite glue for this type of project, where you want it to stick quick, is Alene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue. It’s thick, so I applied it with a brush.
First, pom-poms.… Keep reading…
