DIY Scalloped Christmas Ornaments 

DIY Gold Scalloped Christmas Ornaments

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... the trees are up (yes trees, yay!), the lights are sparkling and everything feels so cozy. All the decorating has me wanting to create and craft. ALL. THE. TIME. Is there such thing as too many decorations & ornaments? I think not. The W Network (which would be the equivalent to the Hallmark Channel) has been airing a steady stream of sappy, feel good movies and I am lapping it up. I don't care that they all end the same or generally have an unrealistic storyline, the leading men in each story is a gift from Sa[...]

Super Simple Sharpie Doodle Easter Eggs

Sharpie. Doodle. Sounds simple right? I'm all about simple. And mess free. Let's get real though, I have 3 kids. There's hardly such a thing as simple and mess free, it's either one or the other.

8 Free Valentines Cards Printables for your boy

...or girl who is into army men, Minecraft & whoopee cushions. I have two boys - 8 & 4. All I know is Lego, Minecraft, nerf guns, wrestling....want me to keep going? Boys make noise and not pretty noise, they are loud and if our temperature didn't dip down to -30C they would live outside so that I could block out the loud. Every February we find ourselves in WalMart - it's a given. And every February we walk by the seasonal section that showcases an over abundance of generic valentines. Sigh. Not fun for this crafty mom. But they're boys right? They don'[...]
