Mother of Dragons Costume

Daenerys Targaryen is the coolest character on The Game of Thrones. To start with she has a ton of cool nicknames, including: The Mother of Dragons; Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen; The Unburnt; Daene; Khaleesi; and Queen of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. She is a rich character both in the books and on the show Game of Thrones. She frees slaves, bathes in fire, and gave “birth” to dragons. As a new mom, I wanted to wear a costume for mother and child. The first costume that came to mind was Daenerys and her dragons. Since she is such a strong female figure, I thought this would be a great start for dressing up with my daughter for many Halloweens to come.

DIY Nursery Letters

DIY Nursery Letters created by April Erhard of April Golightly

We received a sample of Lullaby Paint for review purposes only. All opinions are our own.

I wanted my daughter’s bedroom to have a customized feel, but did not want to spend a fortune buying letters. I have seen them cost from $10 to $60 a piece. Making them custom from the craft store is much cheaper. Since Camilla’s name is so long, there was no way I was going to spend even $10 a piece. I spent less than $2 per letter for this DIY project, and I have craft supplies left over to do other projects.

Pet Scarf DIY

Every time my puppy, Harrison Ford goes to the groomer her comes back with a cute scarf. Since I have been doing his grooming lately, I decided to make a pet scarf DIY. For my baby shower, I bought a pink polka dot fabric quarter from Joann Fabric. I know he is boy puppy, but boys can wear pink too! He looks very manly in his pink polka dot scarf! We made him a camo printed one that he has been wearing non-stop as well. I cannot wait to match the babies outfits to Harrison’s bandanas. The ability to buy fabric in quarters makes it really easy to make a ton of these pet bandanas.

The Carrie Diaries Inspired DIY

I have been watching the Carrie Diaries since it came out.  It has filled the hole in my teen drama TV schedule  that the end of Gossip Girl created.  Naturally, it’s also spurred me on to re-watch Sex and the City.  I had forgotten how much I loved those 4 girls! The Carrie Diaries is not much like SATC, but it has lust-worthy fashion of the 80s that I miss. I could never imagine missing the 80s, but as with all fashion, there will always be a recycle of trends. Of course, there have been modifications of the 80s look. Carrie wears updated 80s clothing, but her co-stars wardrobe is straight out of the decade of indulgence.
