DIY Spring Moss Wreath Tutorial

It is not too often that I actually make something for myself. I actually do not have a great place to display this wreath, but I made it anyway and I really love it! I had some foam wreath forms a friend had given to me a long time ago and I just hadn’t found a use for them. Recently, I was browsing Pinterest and saw some cute moss wreaths I thought I could make.…

MOPS Spa Crafts

I am getting ready to graduate from MOPS 🙁 but I decided that I would share our last craft project for the year. I thought it would be nice for the moms to be able to make some spa themed goodies to take home with them and, hopefully, relax a little bit later. I presented several options to our steering team and they wanted do to them all. So, we made rice socks, sugar scrubs,…

Ribbon Bow Mini Hair Clips Tutorial

Several years ago I was very ambitious and made hair clips for my girls. I got a bunch of supplies to get started. Then, over the years, I collected more. And more. And more. And made less. And less. And less. They are so cute! You can make them for holidays, stocking stuffers, and Easter egg fillers. At one point I wanted to have headbands or hair clips to match all of my girls’ outfits!…

DIY Handwriting Copy Sign Tutorial

A new trend I have noticed is displaying portions of handwritten notes enlarged as a sign. I think it is a lovely way to remember special words. I was recently asked to create a sign with a portion of Clarence’s note from It’s a Wonderful Life so I thought I would snap a few pictures of the process to share a tutorial on the blog.   I happened to have the perfect size board already…

Paint Chip Jack-O-Lanterns

I am a big fan of activities for my kids that take very little preparation and can occupy them for a very long time! I usually enjoy spending time with my kids, but sometimes I have to get stuff done! On a recent trip to Lowe’s (where I actually did buy some paint) we grabbed some paint samples. I had a plan in mind, but my 4yo thought that these paint chip samples were some…

Rustic Chicken Wire Photo Display

I think my 17yo son inherited some of my crafty genes. When I took him school shopping he asked to go to craft stores to get inspiration for his girlfriend’s birthday gift. I didn’t mind. 😉 They are renovating her bedroom, so he wanted to make something for her new room. He combined inspiration from a few different pieces that we saw, made a small tray for a practice run, then built the final product.…

Painted Bug Rocks

How is your summer vacation going? Ours is going OK. Some days are better than others. Some days we have a lot of fun, but some days I am at my wits end because they are fighting and making messes all of the time. Some days I can’t believe how productive I have been around here, but most days the house seems completely trashed. Some days we do fun things and some days they binge…

Mod Podge Toy Doghouse

My parents have a great tradition with the grandchildren. When they reach a certain age, they are treated to a birthday dinner out/shopping spree/sleepover. My kids really enjoy it. They love having some one on one time with them and getting a break from their siblings! Last year, my dad helped my 9yo build a toy doghouse for some stuffed animals she chose on her shopping spree. She brought it home to have me help…
