Spring Decluttering Challenge

The early March weather lately has definitely been affecting and reflecting my current mood.   The sun is shining today, but tomorrow there will be rain and snow and yuck. I warned everyone at the beginning of this school year that I would probably be a sappy mess by this spring with so many changes coming. Of course, there are so many extra frustrations and challenges and curve balls I never saw coming. It is…

One Fish Two Fish Busy Bag

I had another cute busy bag idea and it only took 5 minutes to make, so I went with it. I know my daughter needs some work on her numbers so One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish was a pretty obvious choice. I just cut red and blue fish out of card stock, stacking a couple pieces together to cut a bunch at once. The red ones are marked with numerals and the…

Cat in the Hat Name Practice Activity

Kindergarten registration is quickly approaching. I am not ready. My summer baby is not completely prepared academically, either. Oh, I think she will be fine and I don’t expect as much out of her because she is younger than the other kids. Still, I am feeling like a failure for not doing a better job of preparing her. I mean, it is the new standard for preschoolers to be enrolled in music, gymnastics, karate, ballet,…

Free Printable Planner Stickers ~ Arrows

I kind of like being able to create planner stickers based on what I will actually use. These stickers will probably not be particularly useful to most people, but I am sharing them anyway. I have a few kids participating in our school’s archery program. Now, it is not a particularly exciting sport for the spectators (it makes golf seem wild!!!) but they seem to enjoy it. I need to keep track of practices and…

Easy Banana Bread

Did I ever tell you about the time I bought a 40 lb. box of bananas? They were only $4.99 so it was a really good deal! My husband thought it was completely ridiculous. It was. And I think I have learned my lesson. I gave some away, but mostly I just made a crazy amount of banana bread and banana muffins. This recipe is great for banana bread, but I also bake it in…

Matching Girl and Doll Hats

Since I was on a doll hat crocheting kick and my 9yo could use a new hat for playing in the snow, I ended up making a matching girl and doll set! I let her pick the yarn and I think they came out pretty cute! I used Charisma yarn from Michaels and it makes such a soft, fluffy pom pom on top of the hat! I used one skein to make both hats. As…

Easy Crochet Doll Hat Pattern

I am the weirdo who crochets in the waiting room. I have very little patience for situations where I have to just sit there and, well… wait! I need something to pass the time and feel like I am still being productive. It is part of my wiring, I guess. Not that I don’t waste a lot of time on my own, but when I am wasting my time just waiting- that bothers me! I…

Guest Book Quilt

Last fall we had a 70th anniversary party for my grandparents. My Meemaw and Pappy are just so spunky and we are so blessed to have them in our lives and in great health! My Pap makes quite an impression. He says the wildest things and tells the funniest stories. He has a knack for finding amazing deals and making a quick profit. He also makes wooden crosses in his workshop and carries them in…
