FRUGAL DIY: Quick & Easy Dollar Tree Easter Candle Holder

If you're anything like me you have a love for DIY and a love of holiday also hate the price tags on the store bought stuff. When I went to the Dollar Tree a few weeks ago I wasn't looking for Easter Decorations, I just needed a cheap birthday card. As I walked around the store I was hit in the face with inspiration. They have so many packages of these little glittery eggs (I've used them on bows before) and I was trying to figure out what I could do with them. I mean, they are glittery and I love glitter. So, this is what I came up with to use those silly little Easter eggs.

Three Kids. One Bedroom.

I guess it was about 2 months ago that my kids asked if we could move them all into one room. You see, previously the boys had one room and November had the other. November slept on a toddler mattress in their floor almost every night because she wanted to sleep in the room with her brothers.

My Kids Are Wild And That’s OK

I am the parent who has 3 strong willed, wild ass kids. The parent who feels your stare and hears your whispers. I am the parent who feels like they need an extra set of hands and eyes in the back of their heads in order to keep up with the kids. The parent who gets tired of breaking up stupid pointless fights. I am the parent who is trying to get their kid to play the quiet game just to get 30 seconds of chill in a day full of crazy. I am the parent who raises their voice to reiterate how important it is to not stand up in the shopping cart. I am the parent who is slowly learning that my kids are who they are and a book of nitpicking rules and punishments aren’t going to calm them down. The parent who needs a break and isn’t afraid to ask for help. I am the parent doing the best they can to raise happy kids who aren’t afraid of being themselves. And, I am the parent who doesn’t give one shit what you think about it.
