I love to read and I love fashion so when the two worlds collide it makes me happy. Recently I was introduced to several great books all based on fashion some for me and some for my girls. IN our family you always get a book on your birthday and at Christmas, it’s a thing my mom always did and we do it too. I love books and I want to foster a love of books in my girls so finding books on subjects they love is something I try to do.

During my latest closet purge I had ended up with a pile of barely worn shirts with great prints. Most of the time I donate these items but this time I had visions of cute infinity scarves and headbands. My girls and I spent an afternoon cutting up my old shirt making upcycled headbands and upcycled infinity scarves. These DIY fashion accessories not only look cute but are fun to make and easy on the budget (FREE). Best of all we were able to use almost all of the shirt to make several items. Out of a size medium women’s v-neck shirt we made 3 infinity scarves ( 2 of which easily convert to a headband and 2 preschool age headband. My girls immediately claimed the scarves and headbands but they worked on me just as easily.

How to turn your old shirt into a head band and infinity scarf with a fun upcycle fashion project!

If you are a swim team mom, whether competitive or developmental, then you know all about the ribbons. Swimming comes with lots and lots of ribbons. Every meet, both individual events and relays, mean you can amass quite a collection of swim team ribbons.

So what do you do with all these ribbons? I confess the ribbons were making me crazy. I was finding them all over the house and then the stickers with the name, event and time were coming off. So I needed a simple way to store all these ribbons that would not take up a lot of room. The solution is so simple and my girls love it. They can even hang all the ribbons off their pool bag if they want!

DIY Sunglasses Holder

Are your kids constantly loosing their sunglasses, or maybe it is you.  I have stepped on several pairs of sunglasses and my kids have lost more pairs than I care to admit.

I tried having them keep them in a special spot but it just hasn’t worked well for us so I decided to make a sunglasses holder to keep by the door. That way they can grab them as we go out the door and put them back when we come in. Continue Reading
