Shortly After I found out I was pregnant Quarantine started. So I instantly began planning out my nursery to keep my mind busy. I started a pinterest board, and my phone was stocked with screen shots of ideas. It wasn’t until I came across Livette’s Wallpaper That I had a solid plan Of what I wanted the room to look like. We’re big fans of removable wallpaper. It’s super easy, affordable and adds the biggest statement piece to any room. From there I pieced together the room from browsing Marketplace and some small shops we are so fond of! How do you think It turned out?

If you are like me, it can sometimes be hard to keep up with the hype or activities surrounding holidays. But, this cinnamon ornament heart garland is a simple, homemade Valentine’s craft you can do with your kids that is made from things you probably already have in your pantry at home. Plus it makes your house smell AMAZING!
tip- it is cheaper if you buy your cinnamon in the bulk section of your grocery store.
What you’ll need:
- 2 cups apple sauce
- 2 cups cinnamon
- 1/4 cup flour
- twine or ribbon
- heart shaped cookie cutters
- straw for punching holes in your dough
- parchment paper
- cookie sheet
- Mix the apple sauce, cinnamon and flour together until you form a moldable dough. If dough is too sticky, add more flour.
- Roll out dough 1/4 inch thick between 2 pieces of parchment paper. The dough is somewhat sticky so this helps make a smooth surface for cutting out your heart shapes.
- Cut out your shapes and place on baking sheet.
- Punch holes for threading ribbon or twine, using a straw.
- Bake at 200deg F for 2 hours.
- Allow shapes to cool overnight and dry completely.
- Thread hearts together with twine or ribbon!
Thats it! Have fun with different colored ribbon or doing different heart shapes!
Who else is excited about Valentine’s day coming up? I was stuck at home for a week with a sick kiddo and I crafted up a sweet Love day tree your whole family will enjoy! Super easy and a perfect activity to do every night. At dinner, we each write something we love on a heart and hang it on the tree. It’s sorta like a thankful tree, but for love day!
What you’ll need:
- Spray Paint
- A vessel for the branches. I used a mason jar with moss
- Sharpie to write on the ornaments with
- Salt dough ornaments or any heart you can write on. ( you can cut out hearts from paper if you don’t want to make salt dough)
If you do want to make salt dough hearts here is the DIY link I followed that was super simple and took no time at all!
This DIY is super easy. Go find some Branches. I used dead basil Branches in our garden. Spray paint them white. Or don’t. It’s up to you. Stick them in a Vase or jar. And hang up the Salt dough hearts on it! Super duper cute centerpiece for the Kitchen Table. Lovely way to connect with the fam over dinner and its darling to look at. Thanks for stopping in and I hope you make your very own love day tree.
We recently organized and shot the sweetest commercial Shoot with some of the brightest models, and some of our most favorite Brands. When Small shop owner and friend Kerynn from Tenth and Pine asked us to create a brand shoot for her We were so excited to take it on and create some magic! We collaborated with some of our all time favorite shops such as Fin And Vince, Haven Kids Clothing, Sweet As April, and Adelisa & Co. It was not only a shoot it was also a reunion of sorts! Our kids we’re all able to meet after many years of following each other on Social media. It was More So a crazy Party! Except at this party all the parents were trying to get their kids to stop and take photos. LOL. So with all this sweetness there were most definitely some meltdowns but nothing some fruit snacks couldn’t help! Here are some Highlights from the shoot! We hope they add a little sparkle to your day and leave you smiling.
Thank you to all the shops involved!
