Captain America T Shirt and Tutu

Oh, those middle school girls… Last year a bunch of my daughters’ friends were going to trick or treat as girly superheroes with tutus. She chose Captain America. Well, then some sort of drama ensued and the entire plan fell apart. In the end, she decided to keep her original costume plan, so I had to throw it together at the last minute. I measured her waist and cut some one inch non-roll elastic an…

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…

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…

LOVE sign

I painted a sign last fall, but I didn’t like it. Not everything that I make is beautiful and blog-worthy. Some things are kind of a flop, but I am usually stubborn enough to keep on trying. (There is your crafting tip for the day: Be stubborn sometimes.) So, because I felt like it, I painted over the whole thing in red and made a giant LOVE sign for Valentine’s Day. It was actually really…

Create In Me a Clean Heart Floral Canvas

I haven’t fallen off of the face of the earth or anything. We are just in a busy season. This spring, we had girls on 2 softball teams and a soccer team, plus all of our regular work and farming stuff to do. It has been C R A Z Y!!! So, as far as crafting goes, I am on a little bit of a painting kick. I got my sunroom all cleaned out and…
