Crafting Versatile Fall Centerpieces

Crafting is something that I used to do for hours but at some point along the way I lost my mojo. Recently, I got inspired to make something just by walking by an object. This particular day, I happened to be in the dollar store as walked by a ring with glittery balls around it. I just had to grab it.

September – A Bittersweet Month


Forgive me for my absence, but September is a bittersweet month for me. Back-to-School is an exciting time for me because I don’t get a break from the kids during the summer.

OOLY – Making Back To School a Little More FUN


Making Back to School a Little More Fun One Supply at a Time

Quirky, Unique and Fun School Supplies


August. Although we still have half of summer left, it also means that half of summer is behind us and the Back to School rush is only a few weeks away. For me, Back to School is pretty much the BEST time of the year (second only to Christmas), but the boys don’t tend to be nearly as excited for September as I am. To help make the transition from summer to school a little less … traumatic … for the boys, I like to add in some fun school supplies to go along with their regular HB pencils, workbooks, and pencil crayons.

I cannot afford to hire people to do all the work so I will be tackling each repair myself.

Homemade Finger Paint

We have had a couple large paint canvases sitting in the basement for a couple years, and the boys found them the other day and decided they wanted to paint their Dad a Father’s Day gift.  We didn’t have any paint, so I quickly whipped up some Homemade Finger Paint and sat back and watched their creative juices flow.
