Easter is Coming: The Eggmazing Egg Decorator

With Valentines over, we are ready for all the fun that Easter brings! I love the Easter season, it is filled with hope, purity and the promise of new life. There are so many cute crafts and activities that we can do as a family this time of year. One of our favorite traditions is dying Easter eggs. It's a chance for us all to sit around the table and just enjoy being together. Which is why I was so excited when my friend shared with me a new crafty way to decorate Easter eggs!

iPod Valentine Box & RV Valentine Box

It's that time of year again-- time for for Valentine's Boxes. My oldest has gone to middle school, so no more Valentine exchanges for her. But she still played along and got crafty while my second grader worked to make the 'perfect' box for her Valentine party. We looked around on Pinterest and then heated up the old glue gun and got started!

New Year's Eve Treats

New Year's Eve comes the same day each year, but for some reason I like to wait until the last minute to plan! Luckily our sweet friends invited us along to a party with them. I wanted to bring a fun NYE dessert, but I was short on time. So what did I do? I 'semi-homemade' a few things of course :)

Dollar Tree Christmas Gift

For the holidays, I love to give my girls teachers special treats. For Christmas I had lots of cute things pinned, but then I lucked out and found some 'ready made' ideas at the store!

Pinterest Inspired Holiday Food

We hosted our "Christmas with Friends" party again this year. It's our second year and this one was just as fun as the last. We ate all the yummy things, drank the drinks, played LCR, and laughed a lot.


(Jeff and I cracked ourselves up by dressing in coordinating plaid shirts. We didn't even plan it!)

DIY Ugly Sweater Ornament

My oldest had a friend over for a playdate last week, which of course ended up with us making a craft. It's what we do :) This one was fun and easy enough for all ages. It would be cute on package or to give alone as gift. It's the DIY Ugly Sweater Ornament!

Am I the only one who can't believe Christmas is less than a week away?! We have been enjoying the season and preparing our hearts for the big day.  So today I am sharing some of the fun things I have been doing with my family. Keep reading- you might find some inspiration for your crew!

Post Thanksgiving - Pre Christmas

Happy Last Day of November! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving with you family and friends.  November flew by and the minute we put our turkey dishes away, my youngest daughter changed our letter board to this :) 

Today's post covers all sorts of things-- like how to do a seasonal table scape with lunch sacks, ideas for where to buy a letter board (and what to put on it), how to make a birthday cake topper from pipe cleaners, a recipe for a holiday treat, where to go hiking if you want to see real dino fossils, and the best place to get a kiss under the mistletoe. Sound interesting? Keep reading below!

Crafty Thanksgiving Ideas for Kids

I had so much fun in October making Halloween treats. And you all seemed to like them too- because several of you have reached out and asked for Thanksgiving ideas! I will probably make most of my 'crafty' foods the actual week of Thanksgiving. But I thought I would do a round up today of the ideas I am hoping to create. I think this will give both you and I, a 'head-start' on some Thanksgiving fun.

Fall Crafting Ideas

October has just flown by! I did my best to squeeze in all those fun Fall/Halloween ideas I have been saving on Pinterest. Here are a few of the things I have been making.

My PTA friend, Sheri and I put together a "Trail Mix Bar" for the teachers at the middle school. They loved it! We made little tags for the bags, and the teachers filled them with their choice of trail mix ingredients.
