I am also a bit obsessed with making wreaths for all the holidays and seasons of the year. Most recently I purchased some St. Patrick’s Day rubber ducks from Amazon so that I could create a wreath to display in my home from the middle of February through the middle of March. If you too love rubber ducks, here are my simple instructions for making a St. Patrick’s Day duck-oration wreath.

I am a bit obsessed with making soup for my family at the moment. One pot of soup can last two or three or even four meals. Plus, with the cold weather of winter, soup is simply warmly. I also love the gnocchi that I pick up from Dollar Tree. For only a few dollars, I can make a hearty and delicious soup that lasts for days. My daughter loves the gnocchi soup from Olive Garden, so I have been experimenting with my own gnocchi soups lately. This week I made a delicious and hearty white bean and gnocchi soup.

Overall I am quite impressed with The Art of Stone Painting: 30 Designs to Spark Your Creativity by F. Sehnaz Bac from Dover Publications. With full-color photographs and accompanying step-by-step directions, the book allows you to transform ordinary stones into colorful works with projects that range in complexity from simple to advanced. My kids and I love flipping through the pages of the book to look at all the beautiful stone paintings. With the full-color pictures that accompany the directions, I could definitely paint any of the designs outlined in the book on my own. If you are a painter or a fan of painted rocks, I highly recommend checking out The Art of Stone Painting!

I am always looking for an excuse to decorate my house, and Mardi Gras seems like such a fun holiday! After Valentine’s Day this year, I added some green and gold lights to my white winter lights in preparation for St. Patrick’s Day and for Mardi Gras. I am also completely obsessed with making wreaths to display around my home throughout the year. This year I made a Mardi Gras wreath for my mom and a second one for myself.

St. Patrick’s Day is less than a month away. My kids and I love decorating for each holiday of the year, and I love making wreaths to display on the doors of my home. While putting away my holiday decorations, I came across a long strand of gold beads that I never used. Inspired by my recent winter snowflake wreath in which I used a long strand of clear beads, I decided to use the gold beads on a sparkly St. Patrick’s Day wreath. I also adorned the festive wreath with foam shamrocks, plastic gold coins, and St. Patrick’s Day stickers that I picked up at the Dollar Tree.

Personalized gifts always feel a little more special than something straight off the shelf. I especially love personalizing books for my kids. Wise Words for Kids — from the creators of The Book of Everyone — comes right at the intersection of heartfelt and goofy. Creating the book was super simple, and my copy arrived within only a few days of my placing the order. I love that I was able to go through the pages while creating the book to add my own wise words for my son to read. My son already likes looking at his copy, and he is sure to enjoy the quotes for years to come as he grows older. Wise Words for Kids is the perfect personalized gift to give a special child in your life.
