The Party Where It’s Totally Okay to Play with Your Food

Christmas Brunch with Personalized Plates

When we spotted Jenny Keller’s (aka Jenny Cookies) latest party, we just knew we had to share it with you. It is beyond cute, and, as usual, Jenny is at the top of her game. Now I may be biased since I have been known to watch gingerbread house decorating contests on the Food Network, but there is nothing that says holiday time like adding sweets to an adorable little house. Start the whole thing off with a brunch that encourages your kids to play with their food? We’re sold. (more…)

A Holiday Printable Placemat Ready for Your Kids to Decorate

Airheads Printable Holiday Placemat

This post has been sponsored by Airheads. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The holidays are approaching quickly, and we love coming up with festive activities and crafts for hands-on projects with our littles. Our kids love to craft, and instead of our typical cookie decorating, we decided to change things up a bit. We love to design printables, so we came up with a printable paper placemat and thought it would be super fun to decorate them with one of our favorite go-to candy selections—Airheads. (more…)

Making Hats and Scarves Harder to Lose

Personalized Hat and Scarf

Do you send your kids off to school in the cold weather with your fingers crossed that their hats, mittens and scarves will return home with them? It’s gotten to the point where I have home gloves (toasty and waterproof) and school gloves (cheap as I can find them) for my kids because, even with the most responsible kids, cold weather gear is just easy to lose.

How to Make Thanksgiving Fun for Kids

Make Thanksgiving Fun for Kids

Let’s face it, Thanksgiving can be a tough sell for little kids. Wait, no presents? No candy? Not even a song to sing? Add in a picky eater, and Thanksgiving can make some kids the furthest from thankful. Now we know Thanksgiving is all about being grateful, and we think with a little bit of effort, you can get your kids on board too. (more…)

Giveaway: Sweet and Whimsical Pillows for Your Child’s Room

Green Buds Pillow

Have you spotted the super sweet giveaway we have running on our sister site, Project Nursery, right now? It’s from the company Green buds who may be best known for their organic crib mattresses and bedding essentials, but the company recently launched an adorable new pillow collection.

Kristin recently updated her daughter’s room with a few of their pillows and had nothing but nice things to say. Read what she had to say below, and check out the giveaway at the end of the post.


Design Reveal: Stella’s New Abode

Girl's Room Gallery Wall - Project Junior

My nine-year-old daughter Stella just spent her second summer at overnight camp, and she left with one request: “Please redo my room!” Just like the story of the shoemaker’s child, since I’m in the children’s design business, my kids’ rooms are not always the projects I feel like tackling in my downtime. But with her tenth birthday around the corner and a little bit of mom guilt, I suddenly felt compelled to create a tween room for my baby girl. (more…)

Ahh…to be a Teenager Again…

Beaded Letters

No, I’m kidding. I definitely don’t want to be a teenager again, but I do wish I had RH TEEN available to me when I was decorating my room as a teen! It’s fun to see companies branching out into these niche markets. While the collection is trying to catch the eye of teens and tweens, many of these pieces would work as great accents in any space.

Make Your Scooter-Loving Kid the Happiest One on Three Wheels

Globber 3 Wheel Scooter

My daughter turned into a scooting machine this summer. Every time I asked her if she wanted to go outside to play, her first question would be, “Can I please do my scooter?” Needless to say, she has become the fastest three-year-old in the neighborhood on three wheels, and I think it’s about time to trade in her very well-loved hand-me-down Minnie Mouse scooter for a newer model.

If you’re looking for an awesome new scooter too, or if you’re just getting ready to introduce your little one to the wonderful world of scooting, we’ve teamed up with Globber Kids Scooters for an amazing giveaway. Eight Project Junior readers will each win a Globber 3 Wheel Scooter from Globber (a $60 value each).


Stylish Kicks You Have to See!

Rack Room Shoes

The shoe struggle in the Saulsbury home is real! Unfortunately, I have blessed both my children with the curse of extra wide feet. It’s something I’ve struggled with my whole life, and now the battle continues with my kids.  Not to mention, Addison is a toe walker, so all shoes that aren’t tied down to her feet slip off and are mysteriously destroyed.  (more…)

Scooting with the Big Kids


This summer was epic. It was the first time in a long time that we slowed down as a family and took in every moment with the kids. Over the course of the last three months, I’ve watched Blake turn from a baby to a toddler.  As a small piece of my heart breaks because  the baby years are behind us, the other part is overflowing with joy as I watch him become his own little man. One thing that stands out as he develops is that the struggle of being the youngest is REAL! He is fearless and doesn’t allow his age, or size, prevent him from hanging with his sister and the neighborhood gang. (more…)
