The 4 Best Ways to Create Personalized Mugs

The 4 Best Ways to Create Personalized Mugs

I am not a coffee drinker. I just don’t like the taste of it. But tea, on the other hand, I adore it. I could drink it all day long. When I was a teenager, my mom and I had this very weird sixth sense that kicked in late at night, around midnight. At the same time, we’d emerge from our bedrooms and meet in the kitchen for potato chips and tea. Those are some of my fondest memories and I always wanted to share this strange sixth sense with my own child. I think I do. Maybe not with tea, but I have been working on it.

Ohio State Star Wars Stormtrooper

My husband is a very loyal, die-hard Ohio State Buckeyes football fan. So much so that I made him a mini Ohio State Buckeyes Christmas tree last year. For another I love you present last year, I made him this Star Wars O-H-I-O sign to hang up in his home office. This sign is one of the few things I like about his home office. It is such an I.T. man cave. The first time my dad ever walked into that room, he shouted, “You could control NASA from in here!” I don’t like going in there, I am always afraid of breaking something.…

Minecraft Story Cubes

I honestly wish I would have thought of this idea when my son was much younger and was really into creative writing and story telling. We probably would have spent hours everyday making up stories. But, as a just turned 14-year-old, he LOVES Minecraft, but isn’t into story telling another. However, he is responsible for coming up with all the themes on the story cubes. I learned A LOT while we were making these. The story cubes will provide hours of entertainment for any Minecraft fan. You can incorporate them into your language arts curriculum and see creative writing and…

Missing Socks

Does your dryer eat your socks? Mine does. Or there is a leprechaun who thinks hiding my socks is funny. It really makes no sense, and I am totally not exaggerating, but when I took that photo above, I had 4 additional socks in my drawer that did not have a match. I am quite an organized person, and while I do have a lot of pairs of socks, it honestly baffles me where they go. I only take off my socks in our bedroom. They go into one of the 3 hampers – darks, lights, and reds – or maybe sometimes on…

Family Movie and BINGO with the Minions Movie

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MinionsAtTarget #CollectiveBias I am a pretty quiet giggler and very few movies make me giggle to the point where any noise actually comes out. My family frequently asks me, “Don’t you think this is funny?” However the new Minions movie literally had me laughing out loud so much that I snorted a few times. Those little minions are such a hoot, especially Bob, with his little teddy bear Tim. To celebrate the release of the movie on DVD, Target has an exclusive movie deal for…
