About the Author:

I'm a former sweet-tooth turned health-nut. After a difficult loss of a first pregnancy and having a second child with a heart condition, I became obsessed with health and wellness. I revamped our entire family's lifestyle, dropped seven pant sizes, and created a website where I could share our story and help support people wanting to make small changes day by day in order to live well. I also support my family by the work that I do here through advertising content, affiliates, and partnership/consultant links within content. When you click and/or order, it puts food on our table. Thanks for all your support, and may you live well and thrive!

    I made this right away this morning while I was doing some last minute packing before starting to load the uhaul… it kept my 3 year old occupied for an hour! She made birthday cakes with silicon muffin cups, towers, houses, walls, and tons of other things. It was wonderful. She can’t wait to do it again tomorrow. 🙂 THANK YOU! I totally subscribed to the TinkerLab emails!
