Hello my fellow crafters! I hope this week has been kind to you and that you are getting some project completion! I love seeing finished work in my hands! I was working on helping a friend plan a party for her son, and one of the things that we kept lacking was confetti for the […]

I enjoy travel-sized games that can be tossed in the car and taken to a friend’s house. Easy carry, easy clean up! I found a handful of them at our local dollar store and realized that they are perfect for backyard shenanigans, too. We carry them outside for picnics, playtime in the sun, and play dates […]

I try to make the holidays as fun and magical for my kiddos as I can so I tend to go all out in terms of decorations. I won’t lie, my Christmas tree goes up the day after Halloween, I have flashing red lights for the windows for Valentine’s, I have leprechaun seat covers for […]

This warmer weather brings lots of fun in the sun! The kids are itchin’ to play outside… farmer’s tans are beginning and wind-whipped chapped lips are starting to appear. Riding bikes, scooters and roller skating is exhausting though and I often have a handful of neighborhood kids resting inside my house any given weekend afternoon. […]

Spring has officially begun as of March 20! Here in Georgia I’ve got my flowers planted, my bird feeders are full, and we spend our afternoons outside in the warm southern sunshine. I’ve never been happier to see winter go! My jackets and boots are put away, I’ve got all of my spring decor out, and […]

I love the look of using newspaper in projects. In fact, I keep newspapers from different countries that we visit and glue them to canvas and paint on top of them… it creates modern mementos that I can hang and enjoy. For us military families, this would also be a great idea to do with […]

My four year old was “sharing” a bottle of water with me (and by sharing I mean she took it from me, began drinking it, and wouldn’t give it back) when she said, “This bottle could be used for a face!” (Translated: vase.) I replied that yes, I suppose you could stick a flower with […]

If you’ve been following my crafts for the past year, you know that I love love LOVE little hand prints! My girls are older now so they don’t send home cutesie hand print stuff from school anymore so it’s my duty to document such things at home! I saw a photo of this craft and immediately […]

Did you know that Valentine’s Day is the second most popular card-sending holiday? Christmas being the first. There are approximately 151 million Valentine’s cards exchanged per year, according to CNN. Just a little piece of random information for ya… we learn something new every day, huh? Because it’s a celebration of love, my kids like to […]

My mama taught me that you always write a thank-you letter when someone gives you a gift, particularly if it is someone that you do not see very often. This wasn’t my favorite task as a child as I’d rather be playing with my new toys than practicing penmanship but I grew to enjoy it […]
