The Log Book–(or paper bag album) A Girls Camp Craft

Have you ever written an entire post to lose the whole thing just before hitting the publish button? Yea…that’s me tonight (I was using LiveWriter instead of Blogger). Kind of takes the wind out of my sails, but I will try and be as witty and informative as I was the first time. (No promises, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Calling all Crafty People

I need some input.  Ideas.  I know, I’m the idea lady, right?  But there are so many brilliant, creative people out there, that I know you can make my life easier right now!   I am the Craft Director for our church’s girls’ camp (teenage girls) this summer.  Our theme is “Go Navy” which stands […]

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

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 […]
