Are you are familiar with the sting of hot glue?   Is there glitter in the cracks of your hardwood?  Do you have a jar of buttons?  If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these, congratulations, you are in the right place!

We have oodles of Do-It-Yourself  projects under our belts and love sharing them with our Mom’s.  We love inspiring you to become DIY diva’s, just like us!  Over the years, not only have we fell in love with the smell of Modge Podge, but we have upped our DIY game with each party we have thrown.   We have planned and hosted numerous bridal showers , baby showers and now tons of kid’s parties! We are avid pinners over at Pinterest and love tackling the toughest of pins. We enjoy putting our own spin on any craft project that catches our eye. Sure, sometimes our bedazzling and stenciling don’t always come out as planned but the challenge (and laughter) that accompany any DIY project is what makes it so addicting!

I (Heather) have learned quickly that being a Mom and being crafty go hand and hand.  I love to roll up my sleeves, and paper machet with the kiddos!  Sure, it takes longer to wipe the paint off the floor and wash the Elmer’s glue out of our hair than it does to actually make Grandma’s picture frame but nothing beats the pride in my little one’s eyes once the project is complete.

So, take a look around Momma.  There is plenty of DIY inspiration here.  Whether you want to make yourself some fabulous DIY jewelry, you need a homemade card idea, or are just looking for some kid crafts, there is sure to be a project here to satisfy your crafty itch!
