Customize a Storybook With Your Child’s Art

Customize a Storybook With Your Child’s Art

Does your child love to create art? When kids art projects start piling up, it can be challenging to know what to do with them all. I was intrigued to learn about a customized kid’s storybook that showcases your child’s art within a fun storyline. Piccuzoo is a new kind of personalized book for kids! Upload a handful of photos or scans of your child’s art and the book designers will create a custom story for your child.

Meet American Girl Nanea Mitchell

Meet American Girl Nanea Mitchell

One my favorite things about having girls is seeing them enjoy the toys and activities that I loved as a child. American Girl is one of my all-time favorite brands. I loved collecting the American Girl dolls and accessories, making my dolls custom clothing and choosing new outfit sets from the AG catalog. I gave my oldest daughter my Truly Me American Girl doll as soon as she was old enough to take care of her and we’ve grown our collection with several new BeForever Dolls and the WellieWishers Camille and Ashlyn. My girls also enjoy dressing up American Girl’s latest BeForever doll Nanea Mitchell, a Hawaiian girl from 1941.

Save Family Memories with Picture Keeper Connect

Save Family Memories with Picture Keeper Connect

The holidays are a great time for making family memories and capturing precious moments. I love using my Nikon DSLR Camera and my Android smartphone to take photos and create videos of my family. My camera allows me to capture higher quality photos and my phone is great for spontaneous snapshots especially on the go. I take lots of photos of my kids so it’s equally as important to me to have a way to protect my photos from accidental deletion. Picture Keeper Connect offers a simple way of backing up family photos from a phone and transferring photo files to a tablet or computer!

Mommy Wish List & Holiday Gift Ideas

Mommy Wish List & Holiday Gift Ideas

In my family, I’m most blessed when I see my kids enjoy something I did for them or with them. I love doing crafts with my girls and hanging out in the evenings with my husband, watching Netflix. I honestly don’t feel like I need many gifts because I’m already so blessed by my babies’ smiles and giggles and warmth of my home. I enjoy cooking and cleaning (when I feel especially motivated) and I love decorating in ways that are kid-friendly, easy, and pretty. My favorite colors are dusty aqua and lavender and I love dressing up my girls in cute little outfits. I have 3 healthy kids under the age of 5 (and I wouldn’t mind having another) and I’m a stay at home, work from home mom who enjoys drinking lots of coffee — God has blessed our family much more than we deserve. What more could I wish for? So I when I say, “here’s my Mommy Wish List for the holidays!”, I just mean these mommy gift ideas are fun extras for stylish home decorating, luxurious products for making a mommy feel pampered, and fun toys that enhance a mom’s hobbies of photography and coffee drinking. (yes, I’m my family’s resident barista!) I’m sure you’ll find something you love on my gift list for moms!
