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…

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…

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,…

I put a lot of thought into it and spent a lot of time on Pinterest. 😉 I ended up deciding on these composition book journals. It was a very economical craft project and there are some materials left over for some future projects, too. I…

Sneak Peek of Doll Dresses and Some Valentine Stuff

I have been doing a lot of craft projects for the kids/with the kids lately on these cold, snowy days. I made a few new things for their dolls a few weeks ago and ended up designing some new patterns. This one is a reversible doll dress. It was surprisingly easy and I hope to release a pattern to go with it soon. It only requires two fat quarters of fabric and some bias tape.…

Scrapbook Paper Collage Canvas Art ~ Zebra & Elephant

My daughter and I made more collage canvas art pieces featuring jungle animals. (You can see the hippo and tiger that we made before HERE.) First, we did a purple elephant on an aqua background. Then, she changed her mind and did a zebra on a pink background. The ribbon on the edges has polka dots. One thing we learned is that using larger pieces for the background reduces the bubbles.  All it takes is…

Valentine’s Day Home Decor

Please don’t think I am actually early for something. These are actually pics of my Valentine’s Day decor from last year. We did some renovating last year shortly after I took these pictures and I haven’t found a new spot to decorate yet. I love my old barn window frame and I always have it decorated with some of my favorite black and white photographs of each of the kids. They have been hanging around…
