July 4th Home Decor

I do seasonal decorating around here. I am sort of undecided about home decor ideas- most things I really want to do require major renovations and a large budget. Instead, I do some smaller things to try to brighten things up around here. Seasonal decor fits in well with my “undecided look.” I leave my patriotic decor up from late May to early September; it covers Memorial Day to July 4th. Then comes fall, which seems too…

Washi Tape Organization

My daughter has decided that she hates blogging today, so I am going to finish the post for her. It is all about getting organized with washi tape. Washi tape can help to get things organized in a fun, cute way. My mom made her own tabs in journals to create sections by folding a little washi tape on the edge of the page. My mom also uses washi tape in her planner, and I use…

Washi Tape Cards

Hi! I’m Halley, and I’m here for Washi Week. Since I know many people have absolutely no idea what washi tape is, let me explain: washi tape is decorative paper tape that comes in SO many different sizes and prints, and you can do just about anything with it. I am basically the expert of washi tape in the family. I can’t tell you how much I love this stuff. I may or may not…

Altoid Tin Magnetic Playset Tutorial

This was a craft project that I had been wanting to do for a long time. It took awhile to empty one of those Altoid tins because it was well hidden in my purse and they are so curiously strong that the kids won’t steal and eat them all in one sitting even if they do find them. My mom also donated a few to the cause, so we were finally able to craft with…

Scrapbook Paper Picture Frame Tutorial

April is generally the craft month for our MOPS group. We wanted to come up with something that every mom could use… picture frames! At the March meeting we set up a photo booth with two background choices: an aqua sheet thumbtacked to the divider with THIS pink and yellow bunting or a navy sheet thumbtacked to the divider with some yellow stars that are part of our “Starry Eyed” meeting decor. They were simple,…

Egg Letter Matching Activity

I like to make sure that my children are able to occupy themselves. It is how I get things done around here and a good life skill for them. With only one at home this year, it has been challenging. She can get really clingy. “Mommy, take a nap with me!” really means come lay with me while I talk your ear off and keep annoyingly touching your face. She is such a tease because…
