Last month we traveled to France, but this month we’re staying stateside with the Golden Gate Bridge in sight. Liz Stanley, another one of our fave traveling moms, is the brilliant mind behind the crafty blog Say Yes to Hoboken. This New Yorker enjoyed a few blissful years in Hoboken, N.J., before taking a brave leap to the West Coast with her husband and son by her side. Living in the “fairytale city” of San Francisco, Liz is constantly surrounded by an abundance of inspiration and creativity. My favorite aspect of Say Yes to Hoboken? The marriage of fashion with interior design. Cool DIY and entertaining ideas. Plus her insights into life as a mom. (She makes it look way too easy!) Liz’s blog is the ultimate guide to a budget-friendly stylish life.

Now more than ever, being thrifty while still keeping our wardrobe fresh, our home up to date and our kids happy is important. Smart and easy tutorials from Liz on how to create a gathered, high-waisted skirt, striped tote bag and whimsical mobile will unleash your inner craft skills, while simultaneously saving money. That sounds like a win-win situation to me. And it doesn’t stop at clever craft projects; Liz posts favorite recipes, trendy finds and her daily Babble posts that you’re guaranteed to love.

Say Yes to Hoboken Crafts

I just can’t get enough of Say Yes to Hoboken. It’s the perfect mesh of everything I love, without having an overwhelming amount on a certain topic. And for those of us with limited free time, Liz’s weekly roundups offer the best web finds of the week conveniently compiled in a clickable list. (That’s how I came across this AMAZING chevron-patterned picnic blanket project.)

Say Yes to Hoboken Kids' Crafts

Of course I can’t forget the kiddies. April showers are long gone, but when rainy days do stop by for a visit, keeping the children entertained while cooped up indoors can be tricky. Here comes Liz to the rescue. Her rainy day crafts for kids feature items often found around the house used in easy projects kids can make on their own. They’ll love practicing the alphabet in the form of letter cookies and building sky-high (edible) structures with toothpicks and marshmallows. Can I please be a kid again?

Check out Say Yes to Hoboken on Facebook and Twitter if you just can’t get enough of Liz. We can’t!

    Brands for instance Ralph Lauren, Reckon, Business Republic (nowadays, a split of Opening) and Lacoste managed to
    get big among these clean-cut preppies. Denim arrives in a broad
    selection of shades of black from a midnight black to
    a extremely mild pale gray that is almost white.

    The food processor can’t cook your food, and more time is needed in preparing your food.
    Buy Blenders – There is a bit of truth in that some food
    items may rise to the top of the vortex created by the blades.
    If for example the original developer, Stephen Poplawski were surviving
    today nevertheless most probably enjoy a todays individual blenders and exactly how they have been integrated into everyones lifetime.

  6. A mom who follows healthy pregnancy diet guidelines carefully has better chances of supplying the
    proper nutrition on her child, and is better assured that her child is developing and functioning normally.
    Examples of low impact exercises include, but are not limited to,
    the following; swimming, yoga, meditation and slow walks.
    This means you need to approach your weight loss differently than you would have before you got
    pregnant or if your child were a little older.

  7. Dusty says:

    Subwoofers also have an optimal placement as one might expect (although in my opinion it’s not as critical due
    to the low frequency nature of a subwoofers sound).
    Say you do not feel like going to the movie theatre you get the
    theatre like feeling sitting right there in your living room or
    bedroom without having to waste you money by going there.
    The powerful single speaker system equipped with built-in subwoofer
    will give you a remarkably rich surround sound.

  8. Awesome blog you’ve got here but I was wondering should you knew of any forums that cover exactly the same topics talked about here? I
