My daughter's preschool Valentine's Day party is tomorrow and I needed to come up with some cute teacher gifts in a pinch. I happened to have a whole stack of Chapstick here at the house along with a stack of blank cards that I had picked up at Target awhile ago so I decided to put together some easy DIY Valentine's Chapstick Cards.
There are many reasons why you may be looking for a new home. Maybe you are downsizing, looking for a new family home or just wanting to get on the property ladder. Viewing houses are the best way to visualize yourself living there. But in all the excitement, it can be easy to miss potential problems during your viewing session. These issues can cost a fortune to rectify which is not ideal when you’ve only just moved in. So take a look at these three common problems which you can keep an eye out of during your next viewing.

My little Kendall is finally at the age where she's really needing shoes. She's so mobile and socks can't protect her feet like shoes can. I try to put her in shoes that aren't too heavy like these adorable Robeez cozy pink leather moccs.
More and more of us are making the most of the days out with the family. There was a time when it was considered too difficult to travel around with children too young for school. And there wasn’t much to do with them either. Older kids were the ones having all the fun while the little ones could only stand and watch. How many preschoolers do you know who would put up with that for long?
Fortunately, nowadays, it’s easier and safer than ever to travel around with all your kids. Child seats in the car make it much safer for the tiniest tots. And thanks to advances in technology, you can now take all your favorite entertainment with you. The kids can watch their favorite TV shows, or even play video games in the car. This means you can drive safely without bored kids distracting you on the road.
Theme parks are definitely one of the best places to take your kids. More and more cater for even the tiniest tots. You can find clean, hygienic baby changing rooms. Gone are the days you had one foot on the toilet and a wriggly baby on your knee as you change the diaper. Restaurants are certainly more child-friendly too, offering fresh fruit and vegetables. You can even get your bottle warmed for the baby.

Plus, what makes them unique is that they deliver simple yet chic single-variety bunches of flowers rather than a mixed bunch like most companies send.
Choosing the right kitchen appliances for your home can be daunting, especially if you’ve never done it before. With modern technology spreading into the kitchens all over the world, there’s more choice than ever before. It can be difficult to know exactly which items you need when most brands claim to have the best products. This can sometimes lead to you ending up with overpriced products that are not fit for purpose. Ideally, you want to buy appliances that will make your everyday task simpler and easier to complete. To make sure you buy the right products, ask yourself the following questions.
What do I need this appliance for?
Buying an appliance that you won’t use or that is difficult to operate will be a waste of your time and money. Appliances can be expensive to buy and to run, so you need to make sure you’re buying it for the right reasons. While style is important, you should never buy an appliance just because you like the way it looks. Ask yourself what appliances you need to make your life easier and to enhance your cooking process further. Maybe you need a dishwasher in your kitchen so you can spend more time with your children or a microwave for stress-free meals before work. It needs to have a purpose to make your investment worthwhile. Also, consider energy efficient products that can save you money on your gas and electric bills. You don’t want to pay a fortune to run an appliance you barely use.

I'm always looking for ways to repurpose our toilet paper rolls. I did some searching on Pinterest and found a million ways to use them for toddler and preschooler crafts. The easiest one, by far, was this DIY Valentine's Card which only required a bent toilet paper roll and some rubber bands (or tape). We dipped the roll into paint and stamped away.
Check out my Pinterest Craft page to see more ideas.
