DIY with Me and My Hubs - Pretend Shop for Kiddos!

Happy Monday! Today we are excited to start a new series on the blog. The series, “DIY with Me and My Hubs”, will be our way of sharing projects Mike and I have taken on (whether they are projects we have created or projects we have read + learned about that became inspiration for our own household needs|wants). Since Mike and I are DIYers and love to create, there have a been a lot thus far. Some live permanently in our old home, others are movable and some now live in our “new” renovated (by us!) farmhouse. Today’s project share - a mini pretend play retail shop (lemonade stand, puppet show stage, etc) for kiddos….

Gardening With The Littles

It’s not a secret that I have a brown thumb. Truthfully anything I attempt to plant, if I’m successful to even get it in the dirt properly, usually ends up dying. However, in our new home I have made a firm commitment to embrace it, make our new yard our own and enjoy it while doing it! Enter my girls…

S.T.E.A.M.

Five words you want your child/ren to grasp, learn, understand, but mostly have fun while engaging. Bitsy came across an innovative children’s STEM-focused company that is going to blow your mind. We’re sharing KiwiCo. with you today to motivate you and your little ones into learning, fun projects and keeping busy (did we say while learning?!)! Kiwi Co. was created by educators, makers and engineers to bring today’s child an exciting approach to science, technology, engineering, art and math. They neatly and passionately create amazing experiences in all of these categories for children of ages 0-16(+!). Experiences like making and assembling your own light up wire art and a “fun with flight” experience where they are able to create their own funny-face paper kites that really fly! One of the projects that that Bitsy has its eye on and really WOWS us is the one that allows you to build and fire a real, functioning trebuchet that launches a ping-pong ball up to 10 feet. Yup. Mind blown!

Finger Puppets

Lucy’s birthday is coming up (soon 😁) and we’ve started the planning. So, as we think through our favorite gifts, we decided to motivate you today with another great birthday gift idea. Lu’s birthday wish list is more detailed this year, as she will be turning 8, so the pressure is kind of off to get super creative. However, we always like to surprise our girls with something a little more personal, more special from Mike and myself. We know you know at this point how much Bitsy loves Pinhole Press so bare with us as we share yet another great (inexpensive) gift option for kiddos that will really show you love them. And, best of all, this gift creates imaginative play for hours. Our girls adore them and frequently I will find them on their own playing with them, creating stories and characters and scenarios that would spark an interest in play in even the crankiest kid! Introducing…

New Baby

When a family member or friend have a new baby it is sometimes tricky to come up with the right care package to bring them to let them know how excited you are! Food + nourishment, something for the little one to wear or use and a hug. When that meal-train email comes through you can hop on it without stress. Through the years, I have honed in on my go-to care package - what peeps need (+ want!), a package that is not too expensive that is also easy to put together. Let’s face it - when I make others dinner normally my own family suffers and eats eggs that night! Today Im sharing my “new baby care package” jam with you. My gig is tried and true and easy…

Bitsy x The Realistic Organizer

Motivation Monday at its finest….
Oh boy do we have something FUN to motivate you on this SNOW DAY Monday! We recently paired up with Stefanie Jones of The Realistic Organizer for some home organization projects. Today, we’re sharing all about Stefanie and her amazing company as well as how she transformed a tricky space in our new Living Room built-ins into a tip-top establishment. Before and afters that will leave you saying HALLELUJAH!

It is a known thing that I like to organize. I get such a high off of sorting, purging and re-organizing. Lately, however, we have been so overwhelmed with our renovations that those fun, little projects have become a burden. Enter Stefanie, THE Realistic Organizer.

Namaste + Little Yogis

We recently came across a show on the Amazon Prime app called Cosmic Kids Yoga. Our girls are obsessed with it. Like, ask to do yoga before breakfast obsessed. So since they’ve been consistent with this show and really enjoy doing yoga together along with Jaime, the host, we decided to gift them their own yoga mats. Lucy is obsessed with owls and Greer loves anything with birds, so we chose these mats for them…

1st Birthday Paintings

We struggle with finding the right, cool art for our home that not only goes with our aesthetic/decor, but has meaning and isn’t $1M! Finding something we actually WANT to look at all the time that makes us happy for any particular reason. In our old house we were building our collection as we started to build our family so naturally we had a lot of walls to fill.

Art Cart Organization!

Things were getting out of hand. Every time my girls wanted to color (not even take on a big art project) I was getting stressed. There was no system. And the clean up would be too much for us all. I already had the great coloring mat idea (you can find that here), but I needed a place for that to live along with all of their markers and other mediums. I was stressed, they were stressed and the worst part was that my kids didn’t have their creative outlet when they were home.

Bitsy's Favorite Gifts from Christmas!

We were really picky with what we gave the girls this year for Christmas. After a year of purging, cleaning and renovating we felt that less really does mean more so we stuck to our guns and paired down their lists. Here is what Lucy + Greer told us are their favorite gifts from Christmas:

Santa Writes Back Kit

‘Tis the Season! What we love most about the holiday season is the little sprinklings throughout - baking gingerbread cookies and houses, decorating the tree, Elf on the Shelf shannagins, our girls decorating their mini trees for their rooms. We have a soft spot for a hand-written, snail-mailed letter as we shared in our Snail Mail post last March. So it is only fitting that we share this great little “Santa Writes Back Kit” creation by none other than Mr. Boddington’s Studio. There is still time (up until Dec. 15th!) to participate in this sweet idea. Something that can become a new tradition while keeping the old traditions alive.
