Pre-baby days, I used to enjoy the occasional DIY project. Now I enjoy the idea of them, and certainly love to torture myself by scrolling through Pinterest images of amazing repurposing of old items, toys and costumes for kids, parties, etc. Sheesh! Who has the time for all of that?!?! I'm lucky if I sweep up the dust bunnies before they outgrow my son! #MotherOfTheYear!!
But, sometimes you just need a few simple ideas to make it seem a little less overwhelming. So I'm happy to bring you the great blog of a new mommy friend of mine - Life is Made with Katie Miles. Check out her Five Fun Projects to Do With Your Kids this Winter, featuring things like making a prince or princess crown or kitty/puppy ears, and painting gingerbread men. How fun!
Katie's blog is sure to give you great ideas for anything from throwing a movie night party to cooking a fabulous dinner, and she even teaches classes in NYC and upstate NY on embroidering, crafts, etc! This stay-at-home-mom and "domestic artist" has a BFA in Painting and Fibers (is that a thing!? wow!). "Life is Made is the result of love for the outdoors, recycling, creating beautiful things, and being committed to the philosophy that life is only as good as the things that you make. " Well, I made a stinking cute baby, so my life is pretty good at the moment ;) But hopefully I'll find the chance to try some of Katie's projects soon!!
