Make an adorable, cut & dress-up, unisex doll, that stands on its own (and is sturdy enough to hold actual jewelry), using a pizza box.
Do you remember those dress up dolls we were cutting off of paper and had all sorts of cute outfits? They were pretty and elaborately designed but were not very sturdy and consequently, they didn’t last long. I made a much sturdier and larger version for The Cute – and didn’t cost a thing!
Read on for the tutorial, plus 6 ideas for learning activities using this cute dress up doll.
Made new art for our walls. Literally – tongue in cheek – ART, with a touch of pop. This is my best yet and a good step towards filling what hubby calls my “army of frames”. You might have gotten a glimpse of the 2nd printable in our 15 minute accent wall post.

We are finishing up the new window of the nursery, now that we fixed the missing drip cap. Once a window is installed, the next step is to seal it properly. And the next-next step is to tackle the rest of our non-closing, non-opening, old windows.
Especially the one I caved in with my thumb. Long story but it was so rotten I pushed through the wood, with just my finger…
In this post however, we are sharing how and where to caulk the interior of newly installed windows.
We will also demonstrate a caulking gun (a good caulking gun – mom pay attention!) and how to use it. There is a LOT of information in this post so get the beverage of your choice and read on!
I am at the happy place where I – finally – have plenty of wall frames to fill with photos, art and quotes. How about a happy go lucky message that combines three of this year’s trends? And two free printables with some diamond vectors?
Something sparkly like – say – diamonds, some gold for extra glamour and a decisive touch of yellow.
I often brainstorm – that is I think hard and then get a headache – on how to keep our home as clean as I had kept our old apartment. With any number of young kids, it becomes a challenge to have a bath, let alone to keep a house tidy.
My big plan so far is threefold: training our toddler to pick her stuff (which is – surprisingly – working), persuading hubby to pick his stuff (which is – surprisingly? – not working so well) and adding practical storage. Starting with the main kitchen cabinet (and yes, our kitchen still looks like this – only messier).
We improved said cabinet by adding elevated, removable, half shelves and they made a huge difference in storage, convenience and accessibility!
