Design a One-of-a-kind Wood Cutout Christmas Display

It’s About Time After years of talking about it, I finally decided to design my own unique Christmas display this year!  And by the time I came up with a theme, Christmas was just over a month away, yikes!  Time to get to work! When I was trying to decide on a theme for my holiday display, there were two things that I knew I wanted.  1) It had to bring joy to kids(and as it turns out many adults!)….

Make Your Own Jaquin Costume

Make Your Own Jaquin Costume

This year, for Halloween, my eight-year-old daughter decided that she really wanted to be a jaquin from the new Disney television show Elena of Avalor.  Great!  Under normal circumstances, I would be able to place an online order for the costume and wait for it to arrive on my doorstep.  Well, what I quickly discovered is that this costume does not exist, apparently the show is so new that the Jaquin costume for Skylar is nowhere to be found! Time to…

I started looking at succulent projects and became completely intrigued by living succulent wreaths….so I studied up on how to make one….

I should also mention here, that I’ve read several articles about how dangerous it can be to…

My kid wants a book nook!

Do you remember that post I did a few weeks ago, the one showing off my “Craft Cave”?  Well since then, my 7 year old decided that if I get this great crafting spot, then she should get to put together a fabulous reading space all to herself!  Clearly it was hard for me to say no, I mean the girl just wants a nice place to read! So anyone who lives in an urban area knows, that most of…

Designing a Craft Space

Designing a Craft Space

I couldn’t help but feel a little jealous whenever I saw photos of dreamy looking craft spaces in magazines or on Pinterest.  My crafting materials where located all throughout my house, some in the upstairs closet, others in the downstairs cabinet, a few stuffed in with my daughter’s craft containers.  I just kept thinking, someday I’ll actually get it all together and create one dedicated spot for all of my crafting supplies to live together in complete craft harmony.  Well, I’m…

Paper Flower Garland fit for a Garden Party

When my nearly 5 year old daughter Brynn decided she wanted an outdoor garden party for her birthday, I was thrilled!  This theme allows for so many beautiful design options so my mind immediately started racing with ideas.  One of the first things that came to mind, was this gorgeous paper flower garland I had seen in a magazine, and I knew that I had to figure out how to make one of my own! The only way “I” could cut…
