Patchwork Pumpkin Craft

  A couple of days ago, I headed to NYC for a fun time at the HotToys13 party sponsored by The Big Toy Book. Lucky for me, my parents live right across the bridge from the Trenton train station (which is a super easy route into the city) AND, they always love watching the kids. So, we packed … [Read more...]

Organizing Your Craft Room

Phew, I can't even look at my craft room without quickly running away. Well, actually, it is a combined office/craftroom but at this point one wouldn't be able to tell it was anything but storage for a bunch of boxes and randomness. But it is my randomness. Actually, organizing it is on our list of … [Read more...]

DIY Paint Your Own Throw Pillow

So you all know by now that I love a good DIY project. Of course, they are never ending here at this house! The first thing that we did when we moved into our home in MA was paint our bedroom. I needed a nice clean space to call my own. Now that it (and the 5 million coats on the teal trim) have … [Read more...]

Painted Snowman Ornament Tutorial

There's just something about a snowman that makes me smile. The thought of C, G, and H making them on a snowy day, the simplicity of three balls of snow, a corn cob pipe and a button nose, or memories of Frosty songs long sung. These memories all bring joy and because of that, snowmen have become … [Read more...]

DIY Barn Figures With Wooden Pegs

Just last month H turned 3. I don't know how it happened. Suddenly my last born can talk in full sentences, laugh at jokes, run around and play, catch a football better than me, and is like a real grown little boy. Crazy! One thing he loves is figures and cars and trains. He likes talking with them, … [Read more...]

DIY Yarn Ball Snowman Craft

I am a knitter and so clearly I am addicted to all things yarn. I love the look, I love the feel, I love using it for everything I can. I've got a yarn stash that can feed my knitting for years to come. It started when I was in my early 20's as I took classes at The Lamb's Wool in Lansdale and has … [Read more...]

7 Inviting DIY Christmas Wreaths

I love a good holiday wreath. I really LOVE a good holiday wreath! Every year as we head out to get our tree, I make sure that when we cut it down (yes, we totally cut our own), Ben saves tons of those bottom branches for wreath making. I usually have enough to make two full wreaths. Depending on … [Read more...]

The Little Old Couple – A DIY Embroidery Project

Last year marked our 10 year anniversary. On a gorgeous 70 degree clear day without a cloud in the sky, Ben and I got married. We were surrounded by everyone special to us. Since that day, our life has been filled with ups and downs (mostly ups) and through every single one of them we have found … [Read more...]

Kids Getting Creative – Champions For Kids

My C was born creative. There is not a boring bone in her body. As she has grown older, this creativity of hers has allowed us to bond. It has allowed me to get to know her better. And it has served as a form of self expression for her. The simple act of coloring, cutting paper, drawing has so … [Read more...]

Before and After School Organization With Mason Jars

School is coming. Whether you like it or not (some days I do, some I don't), get ready AND get organized. This year I am all about streamlining things, both before and after school. I must say, I tend to be a little "last minute". I don't want to do that this year and so I have made it my goal to … [Read more...]
