Ribbon Bow Mini Hair Clips Tutorial

Several years ago I was very ambitious and made hair clips for my girls. I got a bunch of supplies to get started. Then, over the years, I collected more. And more. And more. And made less. And less. And less. They are so cute! You can make them for holidays, stocking stuffers, and Easter egg fillers. At one point I wanted to have headbands or hair clips to match all of my girls’ outfits!…

Red Tractor Dish Towels

Most people do not understand, but there is a lot of disagreement within the farming community. Red vs. Green There are other tractors, but the main rivalry exists between John Deere and International Harvester users. I married into the red side. (My dad was just happy for a working tractor- color did not matter.) Snarky t-shirts are often seen at family picnics. My youngest daughter refuses to wear green or yellow. The kids argue at…

Free Printable Planner Stickers ~ Welcome Spring

I don’t think I have ever looked forward to spring quite so much. I have come to realize that, despite my best attempts at authenticity, I am still keeping up a front on social media. In the past I have been critical of social media because it shows everyone’s highlight reels instead of the full picture.  Now I see that there may be very good reasons for that… Maybe their problems are none of your business.…

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…
