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.

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!
