DIY doll sized diner menu printable for American Girl dolls {Maryellen doll giveaway}

By Tyler, Mr. DoerAll American Diner Menu with foods pinnableMy first introduction to American Girl Dolls came along with my first trip to New York City. I had never heard of them before, but one of the two things my wife insisted we do was go by the American Girl store while we were there.

DIY Easter terrarium kit centerpiece

By Leanne, AKA Mrs. Doer

The picket fence, the bike, the reindeer moss – I loved it all and couldn't wait to put my own spin on it. I began to collect fun spring-themed goodies to make myself a scene that would be perfect as an Easter centerpiece.

By Leanne, AKA Mrs. Doer

I think I had 5 clips the entire time I was growing up. My older daughter has dozens. While they are admittedly adorable, they also drive me crazy when I can’t find the one I’m looking for or when one lands on the floor and gets stepped on. And, her collection has only grown now that we've got another little girl who is helping add to the pile. 

We've tried single ribbon bow holders, but we filled it up in no time and soon we needed another. So, we got a second holder, which we then we filled up within months. So, what's a mom to do?

That’s why the DIY Embroidery Hoop Hair Clip Holder was born. They say necessity is the mother of all inventions, and in this case that is definitely true. Embroidery Hoop Hair Clip Holder Tutorial
