homemade mini funnel cakes! 17 Aug 2017

Funfetti-funnel-cake-5-Blog

Whenever I return home from vacation, there's always something from the trip that I wish I could recreate at home to make it feel like summer all year round. I’m always inspired by the foods that I enjoy while at certain destinations! So today, inspired by a beach vacation, we partnered with Homewood Suites by Hilton to create a favorite boardwalk snack—funnel cake—and show you how to make your own mini version at home with a festive spin!

A Rainy Day Puppet Kit

Summer vacations are planned to be packed with adventures, but sometimes something unexpected happens… like a rainy day! Weather can certainly get in the way of all the fun you’ve planned with your family. Rather than doting on unexpected weather, though, we partnered with Embassy Suites by Hilton to show you how to make a Puppet Craft Kit to have on hand to save that stormy day. It’s small enough to take with you wherever your destination may be! Watch our video below to see how...

reversible apron diy

The new kitchen in our Oh Joy office is finally finished (will share all of those before and after photos soon)! So with a real, working kitchen we've been making more recipes and fun treats for content for the blog. With the need for an easy apron to have on hand, we created this reversible waist apron that works great when you're cooking and don't need the coverage of a full apron but the functionality to hold some items and keep your hands clean. All you need is some fabric and a sewing machine. Here's how...

double-sided pillow cases! 26 Jul 2017

Spoonflower-30-blog

One of the easiest (and least expensive) ways to dress up your bed is by changing up your pillow cases every so often. Since we usually need a few pairs on hand for when laundry time comes, I love the idea of maximizing your pillow case options by making your own double-sided pillow cases!. That way, one set of pillow cases is really like two and you can change it up as your heart desires. Today, we've partnered with Spoonflower using their Fill-A-Yard fabric, to create a bunch of mix-and-match double-sided pillow cases. Here's how!

A "Clean Teeth" Kit! 13 Jul 2017

A "Clean Teeth" Kit!

As adults, we are the worst with oral health. Work, life, kids, and schedules get in the way and our own once good habits fall by the wayside. We often get lazy and forget to floss, fall behind on scheduling our dentist appointments, or fall asleep by accident on the couch by 8pm consumed by exhaustion and miss a tooth brushing before bed. 

When I was pregnant (both times), I remember how much I was told to keep up good oral hygiene because it can affect your baby, too. Believe it or not, up to 70% of pregnant women get gingivitis from changes in hormone levels during pregnancy. If you’re thinking about starting a family, pregnant or recently had a baby, a daily oral health routine is an important way to ensure healthy teeth and gums during pregnancy.

So today, we've teamed up with Crest and Oral-B, in partnership with the March of Dimes, to create this Clean Teeth Kit which gives you a fun and easy place to keep all of your oral hygiene items so you can see them and be reminded to use them. For me, if something isn't out right in front of my face, I will forget about it (i.e. when you keep floss in your bathroom drawer instead of on the bathroom counter you are less likely to floss!). Here's how to make it...
