A DIY tank dress and a $50 back-to-school wardrobe from Value Village

Isn’t it fun when your kids develop their own sense of style? I’ve enjoyed watching my oldest daughter, Little C, start to carve out what she likes and doesn’t like.

Let me show you my daughter’s fun and quirky back-to-school wardrobe from Value Village, plus how to make an easy DIY tank dress!

DIY Gift Card Holder Ideas (Video)

I love giving gift cards to teachers at the end of the year, and to friends throughout the year.

The only thing I don’t like about gift cards? They’re not very creative! Enter these fun and cute DIY gift card holder ideas. These are simple to make and they’ll take your gift card gifts to the next level.Continue reading
