Our personalized wall art is printed on acid free, archival quality paper and is suitable for framing. (Frame not included.) Each design is 11′ x 14″ and made from 100% recycled material.

Like many families can attest, when you have a baby, you are so thankful for the people around you who help to ensure the safety of the birth experience. After a lot of research and discussion, my husband and I opted for a homebirth, which means our reliance and trust in our midwife had to be strong. Erika Urban of the River Valley Birth Center was amazing – she arrived at our house at 1am and little Justin Morgan Bottner was born at 6am.
I don’t know how she does it, helping moms birth babies at all hours of the day and night, running her own midwifery business, raising four children with her wonderful husband…AND building a birth center!
Yes, this woman is truly amazing and such an inspiration. She purchased a very old home on auction and began renovations. They had to tear out walls, floors, bathrooms, everything. Yet clearly the house-turned-birth-center was coming along beautifully.
After Justin was born, we wanted to do something for her that would be meaningful, something she’d treasure for many years to come. But that’s a tough gift to buy! There are tons of thank you gift ideas out there for friends, sisters, moms, husbands, but what about midwives?! That’s when it dawned on us that the best thing would be something that reminded her of how far she’d come.
Teacher Appreciation Day is May 6th, and it’s the perfect opportunity to recognize your child’s teacher for the inspiring work he or she does. Challenging, encouraging and shaping young lives, teachers pass on many amazing gifts to their students, and May 6th is your day to give back.
A simple thank you is all teachers want in return. But how to say it? Here are a few gift ideas for Teacher Appreciation Day that any teacher would love to receive.
Write a thank you note. A simple, sincere note means the most, and is easy for a teacher to keep. Decorate it with a colorful drawing for a special touch. Continue reading →

For the holidays, I like a well set table, a tree decorated with care, and above all, I take gift wrapping very seriously.
This year, when I was thinking of new gift wrapping ideas, I used my holiday card for inspiration. A chalkboard background with red/white stripes with hand script in white. To make it work I used black craft paper (that resembled a chalkboard), some striped paper straws, red jute and a white chalk pen.
Follow along for an easy to do Christmas gift wrapping idea:
DIY Paper Straw Bow
4 paper straws
Jute or yarn
Step 1: Start with 4 straws, cut them each in half. Take 4 pieces from those and cut in half again. Next take the 4 largest pieces and cut a small piece off of each. The goal (see pictures) is to have 3 different length straws. 4 large, 8 medium and 4 small which is a total of 16 cut straws pieces. Then cut 6 pieces of string about 2 inches. These don’t need to be exact.
J & I have the sweetest neighbors. They are always bringing over toys for the boys to play with & sneaking them Squeez-It’s on hot days. Sometimes they bring their cat out to let the boys pet her & they always stop to listen to their stories.
Isn’t this just the sweetest little thing? Anything that is miniature is automatically 10x cuter. Besides, homemade apple butter. I went ahead & brushed off both my mom win & awesome neighbor shoulders for this one.
‘Tis the season for gifting, remembering those who touch our lives on a daily basis with a token of our appreciation. Our children’s teachers top the list, of course, but it can be hard to find meaningful teacher gifts that won’t just get tossed or put on a shelf.
Teachers love gifts they can use. And since they put a lot of their own money into classroom supplies, anything you can do to help is appreciated. Some teacher gift ideas we love are:
