Washi tape, have you seen this cute decorative tape? It is sold in most craft stores and is in many different sizes, colors and patterns. I love it, but it can also be pricey for a small roll. About a month or two ago I found some in a clearance bin for really cheap and ended up bringing four rolls home for a dollar! I have been using it on tiny projects and am in love with this pretty little tape. Read the rest of this entry
My oldest loves horses. Horses make her beyond happy and she talks about them, draws them, watches shows about them, plays with toy horses, wants to learn all about horses, pretends to be a horse, looks at pictures of them, and says she wants to work with horses when she grows up.

Happy Mother’s Day! Today we all honor our mothers. Some who are near and will spend time with them today. Some far away to whom cards/gifts are sent to and phone calls made. Some that have already left us and are deeply cherished in memory because of the love and legacy they left. Some who are adopted moms giving love to others as if they were their own children.

We are in a bit of a cold snap this week in our area of Oklahoma. The first of the week was in the 80s and then yesterday we dropped to the 30s and even snow flurries! I don’t mind the changing weather, it is one of my favorite things about living where we do. Yet it does not feel very springy here right now. So I made a new spring wreath for the front door, then I made one for a friend also
We are enjoying our Florida vacation, mostly on the beach. I wanted to have the kids help me make something special to thank their Grandma for all she has done for us to make our trip special. So on our trip to the beach yesterday we made some footprint stones for her backyard, so she can remember the kids running through her yard. Read the rest of this entry

Today was a rainy day, and on top of that I’ve been feeling sick lately. This equals stir crazy kids in our house! I was trying to come up with something for them to do so I could just rest while watching them yet give them a fun project to enjoy. So I threw together two things as an experiment in sensory play and found… Cloud Dough! The softest sensory dough I’ve ever made with quirky properties that made it really fun to play with Read the rest of this entry
