About Ellen

I help fellow mamas craft a cozy home while embracing life with littles. Join me for crafts, DIYs, tips & tutorials. I decorate my home on a budget–so that means lots of sewing, chalk paint, and DIY. Whether raising babies, toddlers, or older kids, I promise you too can find time to craft a cozy home!

Raising kiddos is BUSY! I realized I was doing a ton of work hunting down great books to share with the little ones in my life, so I’ve started to share those literary finds here as well. I hope you enjoy my collections of book reviews and booklists–curated by a Christian mama who loves finding kids’ books that speak truth and encouragement.

Thanks for visiting!
