Halloween Treats

I don't post often on this blog, but when I do, its because there's something I just HAVE to share!

Saw these on Pinterest (of course) and had to make them for the kids' classes!

Fun Tacks

Part of making the wall display, I also made fun tacks for the kids to use to hang their work.

I used Shells, pom-poms and Beans. The kids love them.

Display Wall

I'm doing a lot of projects with my kiddos this summer, and I wanted a place to display all their art work and such. We're actually going to be in this house for a few years, so I wanted something more "permanent" that will make it through those 3 years.

Tape off the area you want
Paint it
Remove tape
Use molding to border around it
Ta-da! I love how this just blends in with the "accent" wall we have right across from it. Makes your eye take in the whole room.

Baseball Bracelets

This is a really fun project to do. It can be personalized in so many ways! I've seen these many times before, but not until this year my kids got into softball and t-ball and I got an itch to make them. They are a bit time-consuming and can be a bit tedious with all the detail, but its so worth it. I made them for all the mom's on my kids' teams (with a $5 supply fee--LOL). Well, at least a few of them. =)


Does anyone think I should make a few of these and sell them on an Etsy shop? Would they sell? What do ya'll think?

Baby Shower: Diaper Baby Carriage

A few of my friends are having a combined baby shower this weekend. I'm running shy of money to spend because of all the birthday parties and such going on now that its summer time. I saw this idea and decided to try it myself.


Toule is great--it really hides all the imperfections. I used it everywhere to keep pieces together. I love the final results! I even found some scrapbook cut outs in my things and just pinned them to the sides. I think the girls will really like this!

Teacher's Gifts


Its the end of the school year, and I wanted something cute and creative for my kids' teachers. This year, my son had 3 (preschool) and my daughter had 1. So I needed a total of 4. I found so many great ideas, and ended up making all of them in 1. hehe

My husband cut 1-foot by 1-food by 1-inch pieces of wood for me.

Sand down the edges and get rid of any splinters. Take a damp cloth and wipe it clean of any sawdust.

Spray paint the front with chalk-board paint. Dry. Spray, Dry. Spray. Dry. [at least 3 layers for wood, it soaks in a lot]

When the final layer is dry, tear pieces of paper, and using tacky-glue mixture [part tacky glue, part water] start gluing, covering the edges and making a nice border. Let that dry.

This is when I added butterfly punch-outs--be creative!

Twist in 2 eyelets on the top and thread in ribbon and tie a pretty bow.

The back is a great place to write the teacher a note of appreciation and who its from ect.

I hope the teacher like it!
