Turn Your Instagram Prints into a Heart-Shaped Collage

I've long been wanting to make a collage with some of my Instagram prints. Besides having some empty photo frames around the house (I know, as a photographer, that's bad!) and having many blank walls in this rental house to fill, I have so many DIY ideas floating around my head and in pages of my to-do list notebooks.

5 Tips for Healthier, Happier Kids

I'm most definitely not an expert, and I will never claim to be… but right now, I'm just your friend. Sitting across a cafe table, a couple of steaming cups of our favorite drinks between us like they belong there as the woodgrain of the table top weaves it's way around the base of our mugs. We're sharing stories, exchanging knowing nods and smiles because we've all been there… we still are. We're in the throes of this parenting thing. In the trenches of diapers, picky eaters, potty training. and homework (sometimes, lots and lots of homework)....more
