DIY Name Sign

As soon as we moved into our new house and I started thinking about how I wanted to decorate the girls' room, I had a vision of having their names above their beds.  I finally got around to getting it done and I'm loving how it has turned out!

My Favorite Free Fonts

When I figured out that you can download fonts for FREE to your computer, I was hooked!  I collect fonts like some people collect rocks or stamps.  I feel like Ariel swimming around singing "I want MORE!"  I'm always on the lookout for cute new fonts to add to my collection!

DIY Heart Banner

I have a fun little craft to share with you today!  I usually don't do any decorating for Valentine's Day but this year I decided to throw together something quick and easy.  It doesn't get any easier than this little banner and it didn't cost me anything! 

How To Do Your Own Baby Photo Shoot

Let me start off by saying I am not a photographer.  I have a nice camera (a Nikon D3200) but I'm really just learning to use it.  I've had no photography classes or training.  I've read one book that I definitely recommend called The Ultimate Photography Book for Bloggers by Anko Levai but other than that I'm just stumbling along and picking things up along the way.  I feel confident enough to share this post with you despite my lack of photography know-how because I'm willing to bet that there are moms out there just like me that want to take a few good looking pictures of their kids without spending a bunch of money on a photographer.  My baby just turned one and I wanted to take pictures of her to frame and put up on the wall, but money is tight and I just didn't have it in me to pay a photographer.   Well, here's how I did my very own baby photo shoot, by myself, in my house, with a three year old running around at the same time.
