Glass Pebble Magnets

I’m sure I’m not the first to post about making magnets. There are gorgeous versions of these on etsy and lots of other places in blogland. But my husband and I teach a primary class (10-12 year-olds) at church and this idea fit in really well with our lesson. So we made them for the […]

Peeking at Christmas–Can you guess my theme?

Here’s a peek at a project I’ve started for Christmas. Remember in this post, how I said that I choose themes for all kinds of holidays each year? Well this project, is all about the theme I have chosen for this year. Any guesses?

Counting Down Christmas–An Advent Calendar


    ***UPDATE, I have just posted my advent inserts, here!*** I had been wanting to make an advent calendar of some kind, for a long time. I was hoping to do something in the shape of a Christmas tree because that is what we had growing up, but I was hoping for a version […]

Homemade Christmas Gifts–for kids!

I’m a little late coming to the party, but at least I’m here, right?  Chris over at Just a Girl (which is a fabulous creative blog, btw) is having a party where we share all of our wonderful ideas for homemade gifts this holiday season.  I haven’t had time to do much partying yet, but […]

Homemade Gifts…that you can buy! :-)

I know a lot of us are trying to make homemade gifts this year, but there is a good chance that at least one project won’t go as planned or we will do what I always do, and overestimate what we can get done in the amount of time available. So what’s plan B? There […]

Halloween Project–What? There are still a few days left!

Trick or treat blocks craft

So, I know I’m a little late in posting idea for Halloween decor. That’s because I’m a little late in decorating for Halloween. Between the big birthday party, miracle worker week projects, and getting Halloween costumes together. This kind of stuff has gotten pushed way down on my list. In fact, the only reason these […]

Welcome Autumn

A year ago this time, I was anxiously awaiting the birth of my baby girl and needed some small projects to take my mind off of the guessing game of when she might make her debut. I had seen others writing messages on pumpkins and decided that the most appropriate message for us would be, […]

Blast off–The Rocket Launch!

birthday rocket launch

The main event of the birthday party was the rocket launch–and it was a big hit! (Or should we say, “a blast!”?) My husband and I used empty 2 liter pop bottles, glued on fins and nose cones and spray painted it all to make the rockets. This post has the link where we got […]

Girls Night Out!


For a change, here is a party I just got to attend, and didn’t have to lift one crazy finger for. This party was a surprise for my friend, Kim’s birthday. Her husband gets BIG kudos for coming up with this and for providing us with a LIMOUSINE for the night (my first ride ever!), […]

Loving This!

So my little sister is about ready to pop with baby #2 (a boy), and I was looking for ideas because I really should (read: might get to it before Christmas) do something to welcome her bundle of joy. Martha has this slide show of homemade baby gifts. That is where I found this, which […]
