My Twins Art Work

My twins really enjoy drawing and doing anything creative. I am sure I have written about this before. Ever since my twins could pick up a pencil, crayon, pen in their hands, they have been drawing. This is some of my twins artwork. The more artwork they do, the better they will become at being little artists.

My Twins Making Homemade Birthday Cards

My twins will be attending a birthday part for one of their friends tomorrow. They attended the same preschool and now attend the same elementary school as well.

Instead of purchasing a $4.99 and higher birthday card, I had my twins make a card each, for their friend. Personally, I always like receiving a homemade card. I like them because they were well thought out and were made with love and care.

Here are some photos I took of my twins making their birthday cards.

All Baby Formula Goes By The Same FDA Regulations

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PBM Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

That is right, in case you did not know. Every baby formula company on the market has to be approved by the same FDA regulations under Infant Formula Act  . With that said, the only reason one would purchase a name brand formula is for the name brand name. If you are looking to save on your weekly or monthly grocery costs, it is time to purchase store brand formula.

Every store brand formula, given a value price, must meet the same exacting FDA nutritional requirements. This means the store brand formula's offer the substantial savings their name brand counterparts, do not. So, when purchasing your next canister or box of baby formula, compare their ingredients and ask yourself, what is the difference. You will see the only difference is their labeling and pricing.

As you can see, the store brand formula's, also known as private-label, are labeled with the names of retail store brands and typically cost up to 50 percent less versus name-brand formulas for a potential savings of $600 a year per baby. This one reason why thousands of parents have switched from name-brand formulas to a store brand.

For more information on switching from name brand to store brand formula, check out the link above. It will surprise you how much money you will be saving weekly, monthly and annually.

Christmas T Shirts for my Twins

When my twins were three years old, I purchased these really cute white, long sleeve shirts reading, "Merry Twinsmas" with crystal rhinestones. Well, I was planning on purchasing them again this year since my twins are growing.

But then I had the idea to make them myself. So, this is what I will be doing, making them myself. I have purchased two white, long sleeve T's and sheets of crystal rhinestones. These T shirts are so cute and my twins love wearing them.

When I get the time to begin cutting the letters out and placing them on the T shirt, I will take photos and upload them here.

My Twins Baking Cinnabon Muffins with Mommy

My twins love baking, cooking and doing laundry with Mommy. On this day, they wanted to help Mommy make Cinnabon Muffins. They are really easy to do. All that needs to be done is roll out the already pre-cut dough, with added cinnamon, roll the dough up into a roll shape and place them on a baking sheet.

So, that is what I let my twins do here. If it were up to them, at this age at least, they would do everything around our home, especially bake.

Here they are in the kitchen helping Mommy bake these Cinnabon Muffins:

The Home Decor Store and So Much More

If your bedroom has been the same for more than five years, it is time to update. When I moved into my current home, I really did nothing to it. Well, my bedroom to be more precise. It was not until last month that I finally purchased some new bedroom accessories and bedding. The bedding set I had was getting old and practically falling apart at the seams. If there is one thing in the bedroom that should be changed out often, it is the bedding set.

Today, with all the many wonderful designs to look at and purchase for your bedroom, there is no need to stay with the old bedding any longer. Right now, you can look at such bedding's sets like the Athena Bed Linen, Crochet Bed Linen, Stitched Bed Linen, Tiana White Bed Linen and so many more. Now, your bedroom can become your own oasis.

Along with updating your bedding, you can never go wrong with adding new home accessories too. Just as your bedding has been undated, so too should your home accessories. The home accessories will be an exciting addition to the new look you are creating. Accessories to add, not only to your bedroom, but any room, might be some bamboo baskets. These baskets are very popular right now and will add the desired look you seek throughout your home. These baskets would go well on the floor in your bedroom, next to your bed, at the entrance to your bedroom or anywhere in your home.

Just as updating bedding and home accessories are important, you can not forget new table wear. You will definitely give your table that added flare it needs with any of these table sets and dining accessories. Now, your home will look complete. When having your family or friends over for a dinner party or celebration, you can now show off your new table and dining accessories. In fact, these new table and dining accessories can be used daily or for special occasions.
The Blue Fish Table wear never goes out of style and can be passed down through your family. These Blue Fish table wear accessories like bowls, cups, plates and vase are sure to start up a nice table conversation. The Blue Fish Table wear is more likely to be used new a body of water, but there is nothing that says they can be used inland as well.
When you have decided to change the style and decor of your bedroom, living room, family room and dining room, you have come to the right place indeed. If you are looking for a one stop shop for everything 'home', there is no need to look any further.

Pillow Pets are Fun

Does your child have a Pillow Pet? My twins do. Even before they were popular, I found two Disney Pillow Pets at the Disney Close-Out store in my Outlet Mall. I think my twins were two or three when I purchased them.

I had no idea they were Pillow Pets, but saw they were Marie from The Aristocats. This is my twins favorite movie. So,when I saw them, I purchased them without hesitation.

Sure, they are made in a factory, but they certainly do look homemade. My twins love them and I am thinking of getting them a new one for their upcoming birthday or Christmas gift.

The one Twin A wants is the Puppy and Twin B wants the Panda. If there was a Lion or Tiger, that would have been Twin As first choice.

Have Fun Making Homemade, Non-Messy, S'mores

The summertime, even though it is passing, brings with it fun in the sun during the day and making those yummy and chocolatey treats, S'mores, at night. The beach, lake, river, campground or your own backyard, are a great place to make those messy S'mores.

But, did you know these S'mores can be made yearround? Well, yes, they can and there is no sand on the beach, dirt from the campground and fire to contend with. In fact, all you need are these ingredients and a yearning for something that reminds you of summertime.

Here is what I use to make my homemade, non-messy-S'mores:

1 Box of Graham Crackers
1 Jar of melted marshmallows
1 Jar of cake/cookie chocolate frosting
1 Bag of Hersey's Chocolate Chips
1 Large Hersey's Chocolate Bar(if you want to add it)
1 Knife for speading
1 Smile
1+ Family and Friends to Share the S'mores with

Decoupage Jewelery Box I Made for a Friend

Making things at home is fun. I have always been a crafty individual. It seems the older I get, the more creative I get as well. When my twins were still babies, I made them one of these boxes as well. The boxes I made my twins was smaller, as the store where I purchased the unfinished boxes did not sell the somewhat larger size then.

With these boxes, I whitewash paint them. I do not sand them down as that takes away from the somewhat natural look. Once I whitewash the boxes, I add a different color like blue, silver or gold. Once the paint drys, I glue on the cut out photos. It does take time to allow the glue, like the paint, to dry. When the glue is finally dried for the photos, I use one of those black foam brushes to apply the decoupage glue to the top of the photos. Along with the photos, I like to stick pretty floral stickers on the box. These stickers give the box a more feminine look. These decoupage glue, once cured, will give the photos an aged look.

Here are the photos from the decoupage jewelery box I made.

My Homemade Chocolate/Vanilla Madelines

These were fun to make. They did take a lot of melted chocolate and vanilla. Just like my other molded candies, they only took five minutes to chill and remove from mold.

As you can see on these Madeline's, I added a crunchy ice cream/coffee topping on the back side. These are fun to share with family, friends or have a treat for yourself.

When I melt the chocolate, I use a small cooking pan filled with water on the bottom. Then, I use a slightly bigger pan that sits on top the bottom pan. Inside this pan I place the chocolates in a Pyrex cooking cup. Then, when the chocolate or vanilla is melted, I take a spoon and add the melted chocolate/vanilla to the mold.
