Corn-Bean Salsa Recipe for Summer!

I was going to share a DIY art project with you this week, but after making my family’s corn-bean salsa for 3 days in a row over the 4th of July holiday weekend, for 3 different barbeques, I knew that I had to sneak the recipe in here, especially while we are in the prime season for it! I guess I shouldn’t really say that this is my family’s corn-bean salsa, but we make it A LOT. We all bring it to A LOT of barbeques, and we give out the recipe A LOT, so for the sake of sharing...

A Tour of our New House…in all its “before photo” glory!

Hi guys! I am finally back on the blog with a new post! I had always planned on taking some time off to get settled in the new house, but I think getting settled just turned into procrastinating. Procrastinating on the blog AND procrastinating on the getting settled. The lazy days of summer came on hard and fast for me and I haven’t been getting a whole lot done, but WE ARE LOVING OUR NEW HOUSE! I am working on getting my butt back in gear because there is SO much work to be done, and I have SO much...

A Tour of our First House…while it’s still our house!

We are moving in 2 DAYS. TWO!!! I can’t believe it! The moving truck is in our driveway, and a few of our awesome friends and family helped us get it filled to the brim over the weekend. We hand over our keys on Thursday and we won’t be getting the keys to our new place until Thursday as well, which means that until then we will be living with a section of our sectional, a tv, and some mattresses on the floor. What more could you want? I won’t even ask who packed the folding card table that was...

A Handprint Bouquet for Mother’s Day

This post may contain affiliate links Okay, I’m pretty much down to the wire with this post, as Mother’s Day is in two days, but that is pretty much what I specialize in. For anybody else who is struggling to come up with a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift, that you can throw together in less than an hour, but will still earn the total “Awwwww” factor on Sunday, well I am here for ya! A few years ago, we made these adorable “Mother’s Day Bouquets” with handprints! I love handprint crafts and artwork, because they kind of “freeze time” for...

Celebrating our 6 month blogiversary and accepting the Liebster Award!!! | HappilyFrazzled.com 0

6 Month Blogiversary….and an Award!!!

I can’t believe that this past week marked 6 months of blogging here on Happily Frazzled!!! I have had so much fun during these past 6 months and I have learned so much! I have learned a lot about blogging, and social media, but I have also learned so much about myself and where I want to take this blog in the future, which if you remember my very first post, that was kind of my whole point in starting this blog. I was looking to find myself again, and come into my own through writing, crafting, learning, and teaching....

5 Indoor Toddler Activities

Things have been pretty busy over here, to say the least. For those of you that follow on Facebook, you may have seen that we bought a new house! And more recently, something equally exciting happened, we sold our current house!!! We go to settlement on BOTH houses May 19th, so to say that this mama has been a little distracted, is an understatement. I will be sharing so much more about our upcoming move in the weeks/months to come, but today I wanted to share a few of my favorite indoor toddler activities that help me keep my little...

5 Ways to Decorate with Glitter

This post contains affiliate links Glitter sometimes gets a bad rap. I’ve heard it referred to as “craft herpes,” because once you get it you can’t get rid of it. There is an actual website where you can ship your enemies glitter. And Ellen Degeneres has mentioned many times on her show all the reasons that she is anti-glitter and how she has just about banned it from her set. To all of which I say pshhh. I love glitter. It’s fun, and girly, and glittery and if I spend the rest of my life with a speck of glitter...

Perfectly portioned cheddar treats for your little bunnies on Easter | HappilyFrazzled.com 2

Cheddar Treats for Little Bunnies

Easter is just a few days away, so I am trying to sneak in one more Easter treat before those baskets need to be filled. This one is a perfectly portioned snack for the little bunnies in your life, or the bigger bunnies because seriously, who doesn’t love bunny/goldfish crackers? Our little ones are five and two, and every single year we have the sugar filled Easter baskets and jelly bean filled eggs, and our kids are so hopped up on sweets by 7:30 am, that the meltdowns are kicking in just in time to head out for the Easter...

Super Sweet Easter Treats

I will start this post by admitting that Easter has never been my favorite holiday. Maybe it’s because growing up we followed the tradition of hunting for our hidden Easter baskets on Easter morning, and I was never able to find mine (DON’T hide my candy!!!). Maybe it’s because when I was 14, I got my wisdom teeth out right before Easter, my face blew up like a chipmunk and I was forbidden from skipping out on Easter mass (seriously). Whatever the reason, in my younger years, Easter was not my favorite. Over time though, my grumpy mood has shifted...

5 Ways to Decorate with Tulle

This post contains affiliate links Does anybody know what my kids are playing with? If you guessed a bazillion empty rolls of tulle, you win! These are the empty spools that built up in the process of DIY’ing the heck out of Ellie’s Tutu themed 2nd birthday party. I got a little obsessed with the tulle. For about $2.50 per 10-25 yards, it’s not hard to do, and you can do SO much with it. I already showed you last week how you can DIY a No-Sew tutu with tulle, but now I am going to show you 5 more...
