Follow Your Art with Gymboree

There is so much new to see at Gymboree! Gymboree is getting ready for spring with hundreds of bright, new styles. Spring is a season full of possibilities, and Gymboree is inspired by all the ways kids get creative, from their one-of-a-kind spin on an outfit to telling a funny story to painting their own masterpiece or singing their own song. Gymboree wants to know what inspires you and your family. What do your kids want to create this spring? Because it's the perfect time to #followyourart.

I have two children, and I recently browsed through the new spring looks at Gymboree, and here are a few of my favorites:

My three year old son love Spiderman, so he'd love this SuperSoft Amazing Tee. And it would be comfortable for him to wear and play in at preschool.

I think these two outfits would also look so cute on my little boy. I love the Text Pals Tee and the Bomber Windbreaker featured in the Play It Cool outfit. And the Frenchie Tee in the Frenchie Fan outfit is just too cute!

I also like these two looks for my daughter. I love the blue Moto Jacket with the Fresh Moto outfit. And the stripe leggings with the Just Your Stripe outift look cute, comfy, and stylish with the denim jacket.

And here are a few other outfits that I love. I wish the Ladybug Cardigan (Flower Power) was available in adult sizes. It is too cute! And I love the chambray Ladybug Top (Ladybug Garden). When my daughter was a baby, I often dressed her in ladybug outfits. And the entire Flight Pattern outfit is beyond adorable, but I especially love the Ace Flyer Hoodie and the red Pull-On Cargo Shorts.

So if you like these outfits (and I know you do), check them out and the other amazing spring outfits available at Gymboree. Also remember to share your favorite Gymboree looks on Instagram #followyourart.

    Chocolate Cupcake Scarf

    Happy Valentine's Day! 💘 When I think of Valentine's Day, I think of chocolate and the colors pink and red. So I decided that my scarf would have chocolate cupcakes with pink and white frosting and pink and white pompom sprinkles. To make this scarf, I followed a pattern in the book Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies. I did make a modification to make the cupcake frosting appear to sit on tops of the chocolate instead of being flush with it.

  • Folding Heart Envelope Mug Rug

    I recently stumbled upon Ella and Nesta's Little Room's Folding Envelope Heart Mug Rug Tutorial, and I loved it! I love that it's a heart-shaped mug rug, and I really love how it folds into an envelope! So cool and nifty! So I knew I had to make one of my own.

    For this heart shaped mug rug, I used a couple Valentine's Day fabrics. One fabric features hearts and a crossword puzzle with Valentine's Day themed words like cupid, kisses, valentine, candy, xoxo, roses, hugs, hearts, and more. The other fabric is black with pink and red sparkly hearts. I used the crossword puzzle fabric as my main fabric and the black hearts fabric for the top flap of the envelope.

    Dollar Tree Snowman Valentine Wreath (Tutorial)

    **This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.
    Every year I make the same resolutions... First, I want to spend less and save more. Secondly, I'm not allowed to buy yarn until maybe my birthday, which is at the end of May. So with those resolutions in mind, the Dollar Tree is a great place to purchase craft supplies. All the supplies I used to make this snowman wreath were purchased from the Dollar Tree (except the spray paint). Yes, even the yarn was purchased at the Dollar Tree. Yes, they have yarn! The yarns I used to crochet the snowman's hat and scarf are Red Heart Boutique Sashay Sparkle in Red Hot and Midas. I believe I found them there around Christmas time. But, I've also seen the Fun Fur yarns, Bernat holiday yarn, and Caron Simply Soft at the Dollar Tree for ONE DOLLAR!

    Valentine's Day Mini Tree Skirt

    I think having a Christmas tree up all year and decorating for different holidays is such a fun idea, so I'm giving it a try! After Christmas, I decided to keep the small Christmas tree up on the buffet in our dining room, so now I've got it decorated for Valentine's Day. And that meant, it needed a new tree skirt to match the Valentine's Day theme, so I crocheted one.

    Crochet Pancake Scarf

    As I've said before, I am a huge fan of the crochet designer Twinkie Chan. I adore her food themed scarves, and I've made many of them. I own both her books (Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for the Fashion Foodie and Twinkie Chan's Crochet Abode a la Mode), and I admire her creativity. I really enjoy her breakfast themed scarves. I've made her Buttered Toast Scarf (I even made matching gloves) and the Bacon and Eggs Scarf. There was one scarf I really wanted to make, but the pattern wasn't available. So I had to figure it out on my own, which wasn't too hard...
