Summertime Stargazing with Kids

One of my favorite things about summer as a kid was staying up late and stargazing, especially during a meteor shower. There’s something spectacular about looking up into the dark skies and seeing glittering stars and planets, some brighter than others, and some you don’t see until you stare long enough and a little faint twinkling dot appears. Do you have a little Galileo at home? This easy-peasy project will surely excite those curious minds and make stargazing a fun family activity this summer! Supplies Needed: Silhouette CAMEO® or Portrait® Cutting Mat 12in x 12in. Printer 8.5in x 11in light-colored…

Baby is Sleeping Window Cling Project

Putting a newborn to sleep is hard, but keeping them asleep is even harder! These days, I try to be as quiet as I can be when my newborn is snoozing away, but when you are addicted to online shopping this can be difficult. I get a new package about every other day, (sometimes even multiple times a day). Every time a package arrives, I hear the doorbell ring loudly. I am a new mom and I realized just how important it is for the carriers to not ring the doorbell! Nothing is worse than waking up a sleeping baby!…
