Teach Your Kids to Sew

My girls are always asking for a craft. This time, my ten-year old really wanted to do a sewing craft. If you ever wanted to sew with your kids, this is the craft for you! Sewing is a good life-skill- it teaches patience, eye-hand coordination, and someday it will come in handy! (trust me!) So I took the girls to Hobby Lobby and bought two inexpensive embroidery hoops, a bit of fabric, needles, and embroidery floss.


Why We Went Back to Cinnamon Shore!

The day that school let out, we packed up our car and drove back down to Cinnamon Shore. Why?? Because it is the best beach in Texas and only 6.5  hours from our house. The property is adorable and the activities are fun.


DIY Fabric Bunting: Sweet Tea Challenge

Want to know a secret? I have always thought it would be fun to be on a reality show. You know, one of those "Craft Challenge" shows where the participants are given certain materials and then have a limited amount of time to create something amazing. I don't even know if such a show exists anymore- but if you hear about a "Project Runway" style show for crafters... let me know! Until then, I have found the next best thing. A Craft Challenge via the blog world. No fancy television cameras, but there are some fierce competitors and voting involved.

This Craft Challenge- named the "Sweet Tea Challenge"is hosted by KariAnne at Thistlewood. The goal of the competition is to create something fun with the fabric charm packs we got at Jemma's recent blog party. And like I said, I am always up for a crafty challenge.


Luau Party - DIY Decorations

My girl and I are heading to cheer camp soon. The camp is three days long and hosted at a local hotel. The girls will work on skills, stunts, team-building and have lots of fun. And I get to go along as a chaperone! One of the 'unofficial jobs' of a cheer camp chaperone is to decorate the room. Which as you know-- is right up my alley! The theme we chose is "Tropical"-- so think of a luau with a tiki hut, palm trees, and lots of pineapples.
