DIY: Chicken Costume

Hi friends! I made my daughter’s Halloween costume this year as we are kinda into the whole chicken theme right now, lol. My daughter is still at the age where she can be what I want her to be- so it’s fun for me! {parenting win- amiright?}

This was a labor of love for sure as I survived a legit 3rd degree burn from this one- but it turned out so well. I got asked several times if I made it, so I decided to share this video with you as I couldn’t find any great tutorials or even where to buy a cute chicken costume online. I hope you find my video helpful, let me know if you have any questions. Here are some pics of my sweet little chick!

DIY- No Sew, Kids Teepee Tutorial

Hi! I have a fun tutorial for you today- on how I built my own kid’s tee-pee! I had been looking around online and in stores for quite awhile and the least expensive teepee I could find was around $80ish which was not really what I was hoping for. So, I set out {without any actual building plans} just a vision in my head and created what turned out to be a perfect little tee-pee! I hope you enjoy it!

I had a blog once. I wrote about mundane topics that allowed me to write about things that were on my mind…which if you can visualize a web browser with at least 7 open tabs, then you can see what my brain feels like? I think many of us are a lot alike in that sense – constantly thinking about things, googling, scrolling, planning, talking. But how many times do I remind myself to just be. Just stop googling. Stop comparing. Stop scrolling. To 

Over the past several years, no matter where my train in my mind travels to it always comes back to blogging and YouTube. Hasn’t someone said “If you can’t stop thinking about it, just do it” or something along those lines? Hang on- let me find it.


Well I certainly didn’t know Michael Jordan keyed it- but it’s still a good one nonetheless. I have wanted to get started SO many times, but have remained my own worst enemy. Why do we do that to ourselves? Why are we constantly comparing ourselves to other successful people thinking, there are already so many bloggers, so many YouTubers…WHY START NOW??

I always come back to- WHY NOT? If not now, when? I don’t want to be here in September of 2018 cursing myself for not just jumping in a doing it. So I’m here… and giving myself a year. One year- and if I don’t have more that 10 people who want to read what I write or watch the videos I create, at least I’ll know I gave it a fair shot. And then maybe I can move on to a different pasture. With a bigger barn- or a barn, rather. Further away from people. Okay- that’s another post for another day.
