Toddler Transitions

This is by no means a parenting blog. I am definitely not here to give advice. I just want to share the struggles and moments in our life with a toddler. That is why I want to do a series call Toddler Tuesday for the next few weeks. This one is called Toddler Transitions. I eluded to sleeping issues in a previous post. If you do not have sleep issues with your baby or toddler, you are very fortunate. (more…)

Preschool Art Auction

Graylie’s preschool is in the middle of hosting an art auction. I had seen the flyers on the doors and read the emails. I really didn’t know what it was all about. On Monday afternoon when I went to pick her up, all the art was displayed in the lobby. Each classroom was responsible for creating a piece of artwork that would be bid on throughout the week. I have to say I was very impressed! All of the proceeds are going to the charity, Bright Blessings. I loved this idea so much I wanted to share it with you! Here are some pictures of the artwork that was created.


Sweetheart Strawberry Smoothies

This is a pretty basic strawberry smoothie, but add a cute cup and straw and you have something special! The frozen strawberries and strawberry yogurt make it a nice pink color. I think it makes a great breakfast treat or afternoon snack.


Creating a Reading Nook

I’ve always loved the idea of creating a reading nook for my kids. When we moved last summer, we had to rethink our play area. What would have been the playroom in our old house was now the first room you saw when you walked into the front door. I am still working on this area, but it has come a long way. I wish I had a before picture. One project that went into this room was a reading nook. I found an idea on Pinterest that I really liked. The only problem was I didn’t know how to go about finding what was used. That is why I am going to provide you with details of what went into the creation of our reading nook. (more…)

Valentine Heart Banner

AΒ heart banner is very simple to make. You only need a few basic tools and supplies. If you are already a paper crafter, you probably have everything you need including a stash of paper to choose from. I had picked my paper pack up a few years ago in the Target Dollar Spot. It was after the holiday, so I think it may have cost me fifty cents! (more…)

Graylie’s Owl Nursery

My baby is not a baby anymore. We just recently took the crib down. Right now we are struggling with beds and sleeping….I’ll save that for another day. I love nurseries though so I thought I would share some pictures. (more…)

Why start a blog? What is this all about?

Last summer, the company that I work for announced that we would be going through a transition and that the assets were going to be put on the market. I was concerned about losing my job and started brainstorming on what my next step should be. Later that fall, I got excited about the idea of starting a blog. I made lots of notes on what I could write about and started dreaming about my next adventure. (more…)

Welcome to Glitter on a Dime!

Welcome to my new blog, Glitter on a Dime! My name is Heather and I am a working mom of two, Gavin (7) and Graylie (2). I am an accounting manager for a commercial real estate company. Since accounting can be pretty boring, I am hoping this blog will be a creative outlet for me. My dream is to be able to get out of that desk job world and do something creative to be home more for my family.
