    DIY Washi Tape Gallery Wall

    DIY Washi Tape Gallery Wall on Oh Lovely Day

    I shared part of Charlie’s big boy room, and a super easy and kid-friendly room DIY over on Momtastic: a washi tape gallery wall. It is so easy with no heavy frames to buy or hang, and no worries of frames falling or glass breaking. Plus it is the perfect solution to our “no heavy items hung above the bed” since we live in earthquake territory. Head on over to see the full DIY, and leave some love if you like it will ya? I’ll be sharing another DIY I did for Charlie’s room next week too.

    DIY Mason Jar Snow Globe Tutorial (Revisited)

    mason jar snow globes DIY tutorial by oh lovely day

    My DIY mason jar snow globe tutorial was a popular post last year, but I’ve had lots of people asking me on social media how I made the snow globe I instagramed yesterday, so I thought I would revisit my tutorial for this holiday season for those who missed it last year. You can find the entire tutorial here.

    I’ve given them as hostess gifts, gifts for family and friends, and this year I’m making one for all of Charlie’s teachers. Who would you gift a DIY snow globe to?

    •  My mom came to town to help for a week (YAY! ) and I got to leave the house alone for the first time in ages today. And I got my hair did. I feel a bit like a normal person again. Thanks to my mom and husby for holding down the fort while I was gone.
       It's like a showdown of breastfeeding pillows over here these days. I was so sore and uncomfortable from breastfeeding the first week that I felt I needed a different pillow. My boppy, while it has the cutest cover made for me by @littleslumber, was the least comfortable. I've been using the My Brest Friend (yes, that's really what it is called) for the last two days and it is a huge improvement! Also pictured is the Dr. Brown's Gia (their bottles are my fave!) but I haven't tried it yet. Which is your favorite bf pillow? And any tips for keeping baby latched to try positions like side bf or laying down? I have a great nurser with a good latch but as soon as I try anything besides cross body while hand expressing he comes off. My back and hands need a little break!
