faux pallet art and a roundup of awesome pallet art….

i dug this out of my draft box. i never posted it cause i hated how the hand lettering turned out! if you are going to repeat this..i would totally recommend using a  stencil or vinyl …just saying. you buy some wood (i spent $8 for these 5 boards) then you have your husband run […]

personalized tote bags….and a kid craft monday….

stuffed animal from kids drawing –with a new stuffed animal

here’s a guest post i did over at the sewing rabbit– the theme was K.I.D.S. which i can’t remember what it stands for. but the jist is your kids design something and you make it. and i love this series. i recently added a NEW one–so even if you have seen this you really haven’t […]

a secret message…with invisible ..lemon juice? {kid craft} spies only!

my son was super excited to try this invisible ink with lemon juice recipe out ! we love to act like “spies” around these parts. you take lemon juice and a q-tip for writing…and paper of course. mix lemon juice with a little water

it’s starting to get warm…(i might have just jinxed us though) (pants-to short)

(i have to start putting what the post is ACTUALLY about in my title…cause with the move to wordpress i’ve been trying to find some things..and i can’t. cause i choose humor over practicality. and everything is labeled HORRIBLY.)   it’s summer. no. it’s spring. but with the start of 50 degree weather my kids start dreaming […]
