at-an-angle-685x1024[1]

I think Mod Podge might be the reason that I started blogging – LOL. I was on a mod podge kick and needed a place to keep my ideas. Over the years, I think I have tried decoupaging just about everything from frames and magnet boards to tables and trays to bar stools. I just can’t get enough of the stuff! In honor of one of my favorite crafting mediums, I came up with a little project — my … [Read more...]

The other day I had my friend Sarah from Alpine Poppy and her daughter over for a Girl's Subway Art Day. We had a wonderful time chatting and making some Subway Art projects!

A Girls Craft Day is a great way to get projects done while having … [Read more...]

Easter Craft: what to do with those plastic eggs

I got out my Easter bins a few days ago. Why is it that I always think I have way more cute holiday decorations than I actually do - lol? What I discovered is that I have approximately 5 million of those cheap, plastic Easter eggs. So I decided to do something with some of them. I took my leftover fabric scraps and decoupaged the eggs. So if you're like me with a million of those eggs, take some … [Read more...]

Ruffled Burlap Easter Wreath tutorial

I finally made an Easter project. I don't know what my problem has been lately. I didn't make anything for St. Patrick's Day, but I've finally got my Easter groove on. I also got my Easter boxes out today and decorated - yay! This was a really quick and easy wreath to make. I think the total time was around 1 hour -- including decoupaging the eggs (but not drying time). If you want to make one, … [Read more...]

Cute Easter Tree to make with your kids!

Sometimes we do a little craft with the girls. This is the "craft" that Ella came home with last week -- an Easter Egg Tree! My friend had the girls decorate their eggs. Then she tied a ribbon and attached the ribbon to the egg with a glue … [Read more...]

Something that my kids love is making and receiving Valentine coupons.  This year I'm giving my little family Valentine Coupon books made out of a deck of playing cards. I bought the playing cards at the grocery store. They were a double … [Read more...]

button2

 I saw this craft in the Martha Stewart Magazine last year and knew I needed to make it.   How funny would it be for the kids to open a lump of coal in their stockings this year?   You can put a keychain, a pair of earrings, a tie, a pair of socks or any other small object in these little sparkly lumps of cheer. I followed the directions found here, except for a couple of key … [Read more...]
