Life Preserver Picture Frame (Camp Craft #2)

View Full Album In thinking about the kinds of crafts I wanted to do for camp, I really wanted to come up with crafts that would serve a function, other than just looking cute. Remember our theme was “GO NAVY” (Gospel Oriented Noble and Valiant Youth), nautical/military. When I first conceived the idea of a […]

Door Dilemma Solved—and other painting projects

…we interrupt the Girls Camp Craft report to make a special announcement….The front door has been painted!… When we bought our house, more than a year ago, we knew something would have to be done about the door. When it was painted the first time, the hardware must have already been in place. When it […]

Patriotic Thank you Gifts (Girls Camp)

If you have been reading my blog, you might mistakenly think that I don’t celebrate the 4th of July. That isn’t the case at all. It just crept up right after Girls’ Camp and in the middle of helping my SIL to get ready to move into her new house (a mile away from me, […]

Like A Lighthouse Girls Camp Craft

First I’d like to thank everyone that answered my call on this post for ideas. I really did use your comments to help determine the final design of this project. Our theme was navy/nautical this year, so the lighthouse was a recurring symbol through out camp. My goal was to make crafts with a function, […]

Back From Camp…

…physically, at least. I am still in a bit of a fog, but will post our craft projects soon! I didn’t sleep at all the night before camp (long story involving technical difficulties), so on the first day when they brought around these ships for us to name and hang up on our cabins (NAVY-themed […]

More Wedding Fun-Carnival Style

If you liked the unconventional circus wedding I just blogged about, you have to check out this Carnival wedding.  It’s just a touch more traditional, but screams fun with the fish toss, photo booth, and—did I mention—ferris wheel???  Lots of candy and eye candy in this post!

Creative Circus Wedding

I haven’t blogged about weddings too much, but that is mainly because I am getting old and most of my friends and family are already married, so I’m not as involved in weddings lately. There was a time a few years ago, when I was pretty much a full-time wedding planner. Only…I didn’t get paid. […]

Girls Camp Crafting Craziness

This is just a portion of the insanity that has taken over my house in preparation for Girls Camp this weekend. I am the camp craft director and had to come up with 3 meaningful crafts for 100 girls (12-16yrs. old, mostly). I have a budget of roughly $0.83 per craft. It’s all coming together, […]

Final Father’s Day Post…(for now)–Dad’s Favs

While we are doing some of the tie cuteness I posted about here, for my husband for Father’s Day, what he really wanted was a golf lesson. His lesson was this morning, so I can go ahead and blog about how I presented his gift to him, and share some other dad/guy ideas. I probably […]

Kira’s Insanity

I left my 8-year-old alone for a few minutes in the kitchen, where I had some craft supplies I had neglected to put away and this is what she proudly showed me when I came back:I don’t even have to explain it to you since she labeled everything clearly. I’m not sure what we call […]
