DIY Uma from Descendants 2 Costume

This post contains affiliate links.

My family is obsessed with Descendants 2.  We love the movie (including myself, I bought the soundtrack and have it on my phone playing all the time).  On Halloween we love doing family costumes but last year we didn't do anything :(.  Well this year I was excited to suggest doing a semi theme (not everyone was on board, which is fine) and doing Descendants.  It's nice that there are so many COOL characters that are both boy and girls.  We have had issues in the past because my daughter likes certain things, but my boys don't or vice versa.  Descendants is something that everyone likes and there are so many characters that they get to pick their favorite.  Well my 4 year old picked Harry Hook and so he begged me to be Uma with him.  So to make him happy, I made myself an Uma costume :).   You can make this for an adult or a child, that's the joy of making it :).

Harry Hook from Descendants 2 Kids Costume

This post contains affiliate links.

Have you seen the new Descendants 2 movie?  My kids are OBSESSED with it!  Especially my four year old.  He has it on repeat all. the. time.  He loves Harry Hook (he is the son of Captain Hook) and when I asked him what he wanted to be for Halloween, he immediately told me Harry!  Since the movie is still really new (it came out this summer) they don't have all the character costumes yet, like Harry Hook, so I had to improvise.  This costume isn't 100% home made but it's not 100% store bought either.  Either way, he loves it and that is what matters (please it was pretty as far as costumes go!).

Harry Potter Corner Bookmark with Printable

This post contains affiliate links.

Yesterday I made some super fun Halloween corner bookmarksI loved them so much thought that it would be fun to make up some other ones.  I thought what would be perfect for a bookmark?  A book character!  Harry Potter is one of my all time favorite book series, so I thought that I needed to make up a Harry Potter corner bookmark.  I love how these turned!  I made them two different ways, one with a printable and one using card stock and vinyl.  Both are super easy to do and both are super cute!

DIY Reversible Halloween/Christmas Farmhouse Signs

This post contains affiliate links.

We all know that I love making signs for my house, especially around the holidays.  I love being able to make things look and say exactly how I would like them too :).  Well I was at a cute shop one day and say a sign that said EAT with three signs and I liked the idea of having a letter per sign.  I didn't want to make an EAT sign, but I immediately thought that maybe I could make a Christmas sign.  Then my mind started going and I thought to myself, why not make a sign that works for Halloween and Christmas.  One side could say JOY and the other side could say BOO.  They were fun to make and I love how they turned out.  Plus I love when I can use something longer than just a few weeks!

Christmas Neighbor Gift Idea- DIY Small Farmhouse Signs

This post contains affiliate links.

I know it's just October and it's too early to be posting about Christmas (who I am kidding, it's never too early!!) but I was just too excited not to post about it.  Plus it's never to early to start thinking about Christmas before the chaos begins.  Every year I do some kind of neighbor gift for my friends and neighbors.  It seems like every year I am trying really hard to not eat sugar or I am on some kind of diet, so the idea of giving out baked goods and treats for neighbor gifts doesn't sound like a good idea.  I have always liked to give some kind of unique gift that I make that is practical or super cute :).  Well I thought that these little farmhouse signs would be great for neighbor gifts this year.  They are small (about 6x6 inches) so they will easily be able to go on a shelf or a table.  Plus I love these little signs, they are just so much fun so I think other people will like them too!

Fall Porch Decor- DIY Pumpkin Patch Farmhouse Sign

This post contains affiliate links.

Lately I have discovered that I love doing projects (who I am kidding, this isn't a recent discovery, I've always loved doing projects, that's why I blog :D), especially ones that involve wood and building something.  I have discovered power tools and I love them!!  I have done so much on my house lately that I have to control myself and force myself not do stuff on it LOL.  Well since I still want projects I have been on a huge making sign kick and since fall is here, I decided it was time to make a fun fall sign.  I had fun designing this pumpkin patch sign and I especially love how it turned out!

This post contains affiliate links.

Today is the first day of fall, woohoo!!!  I love fall!  I especially love the month of September because you get to enjoy school being in, the cooler weather and not have to worry about the holidays (that's a completely different story come October!).  Last week I made up 6 different farmhouse signs for a boutique and I thought I would show you all the different designs and styles that I did. I designsed all of them differently but made them all the same way :).  If you haven't made one of these signs before, you should, they are super popular and super easy to make!

The Best Banana Bread and Muffins Recipe

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CapturingTraditions #CollectiveBias

The school year is in full swing and we are starting to get the hang of school and all the chaos that goes with it.  I am really enjoying having my kids back on a routine again and they are all enjoying school.  Even though we all are used to school and everything, mornings are still very frantic and crazy!  My kids are NOT morning people at all and sometimes they get up late, like 15 minutes before it's time to leave the house.  Plus this year my oldest is in 7th grade, which means that he started school sports and the past two weeks he has had early morning practices (they start at 6:30am....) and so that has added to our stress in the mornings.  Since I of course want my kids to have breakfast in the mornings, I decided to make up a couple batches of this amazing banana bread/muffins to make our mornings run a little more smoothly.  They are super easy to make, plus my kids LOVE them!

Organized Laundry Room Makeover

This post contains affiliate links.

7 months ago my husband and I started doing a remodel on our house.  It was built in 2010 so it is VERY beige, so we starting updating it and making it more gray and white.  We tiled our master bathroom and kids' bathroom and I loved how it turned out so much that I wanted to tile the laundry room too. I love how this room turned out!  I think that this will make it easier to do laundry :).   I'm excited to show you the process of how we made over our laundry room.

Tips on How to Remove Color STREET Glitter Nail Polish Easily

This post contains affiliate links.

So I am obsessed with Color STREET nails.  They are amazing and I love how they look, feel and how easy they are to put on and take off.  Because they are 100% nail polish, they can easily be removed with nail polish remover.  All of the nail polish strips come off with nail polish remover but I have found that the glitter ones are a little bit harder to get off (just like regular glitter nail polish).  Well I found out a way and a remover that makes it super easy to take it off the glitter polish (this could be used for any of the Color STREET nails!).
