Fall Decorating with Kids- How it Backfired

The girls did a few fall crafts this year in a failed attempt to keep them busy and out of trouble. It was a nice thought. 😉 So, in an effort to keep it real around here, I thought we would do a little exhibit of “Craft & Consequence” Craft: First up, the girls made this lovely glittered fall leaf garland decorating their playhouse. All I did was hot glue the ribbons to the backs…

This is probably my favorite home decorating project ever!…

I have always wanted to do a pink lemonade theme and these silly kids keep going and getting their own opinions about things. This was probably my last chance. We don’t usually go “all out” for birthdays. Just our family…

Fall Printable Subway Art

These free fall subway art printables are floating all over Pinterest. I know. BUT, I wanted one that was special for me. That listed all the things I like about fall. A more personal one.  And, I had a whole day of holding and feeding a needy baby in which to make one.  I printed it on some white cardstock and threw it in a dollar store frame that I sanded up a little to…
