A Hot Glue Gun Mess — from fashion to hair to home decor ideas, Mr. Kate offers fun and quirky DIY’s for the girl who likes to craft but needs a little help. Mixed in with her personal stories and anecdotes, it’s like a little piece of Kate in book form.

This parenting guide mixed with an interiors book adddresses her own personal interiors style advice with how she and her family make use of the rooms in their house. And also snippets from her life with six kids gives me advice on topics I haven’t even dealt with yet.
