I love holiday crafts that are simple, enjoyable, and doable for children. I especially like this Turkey on a Stick Thanksgiving Craft because of the different textures of materials used to create it—felt, wooden craft stick, and foam. Children enjoy hands-on activities with different textures as they learn about the world around them. This craft also teaches some of the basic shapes such as triangles, ovals, and circles.Read More

Farmhouse style is so trendy and makes a home feel welcoming and inviting, so what’s better than patriotic farmhouse décor to welcome my family as we go to-and-from home during these hot summer months?!!
When it comes to decorating with red, white, and blue for the holidays, I am pretty picky about the style with which I decorate.Read More
For the month of March I decided to participate in a blogging craft challenge along with a group of fabulously creative bloggers. I hope you will visit their sites and maybe even find a couple new people to follow!
Our assignment was to create a craft using items from a dollar store. The first time I went to the store and looked around, I came out empty handed. I was trying to come up with an original craft, and my creative juices just weren’t flowing that day.Read More
