Easy Mother’s Day Craft Even Your 3-Year-Old Can Do

Tweet I saw a beautiful beaded necklace in a catalog and wanted to get it. Until I saw the price. It was over a hundred dollars! Taking a second look I realized I might be able to do it and possibly even get my son […]

The Toddler Craft Project That Keeps On Giving

Craftie Quickie: Party ‘Stache for a 1-Year-Old

Craftie Quickie: Party ‘Stache for a 1-Year-Old

I’m working on a covert project. {Well sort of.}

SShhhh…The secret celebration’s for my 1-year-old’s first birthday. It’s secret cause I don’t want any of our guests to see what’s to come before the big day. But I thought I’d give you a sneak peek at some of the decorative crafts I’ve been working on thus far.

Like:

Pennants and bunting oh my!
Pennants and bunting oh my!

I thought it’d be a pain in my neck and cramp in my hands to cut out pennants. But it wasn’t that bad. With this pennant template, scissors, and coordinated scrapbook paper, it was one of those crafts I could do while watching TV (anyone else riveted with OWN docu-series Lindsay?)

I also spent a few hours at our local craft store. Thank you die-cut machine for making foam mustache cut-outs surprisingly pain-free.

Target was also running a sale on the party brand that’s decking out our venue and our guest’s cups. Striped straws, come to momma!

There’s still many more creative tasks on my to-do list. But I’m having fun doing this one. A baby only turns 1 once. =) I’m planning on enjoying every imperfect, messy, DIY project.

What are you folks working on?

A Craftie Quickie: Marvelously Magnetic

A Craftie Quickie: Marvelously Magnetic

Tweet Every week my husband and I “forget” to tackle a shopping list of weekly goals. Initially I tried writing them down on scratch paper and tacking them up with a magnet. It worked okay until they got lost in a sea of notes, photos […]

Tweet The last thing I thought I would ever do is show you a picture of my underwear drawer. Not just because I’m one of those people who believe private things should be kept that way, but also because it was one of the messiest […]

Crafty Friday: Sir Mix a Lot

Crafty Friday: Sir Mix a Lot

Since we’re still in the process of packing and unpacking, I haven’t had much of a chance to craft. But I have moved things around for a little fun. Exhibit A: The coffee table

I nabbed the napkins at a local Kailua store Kai Boutique, the flowers were from my husband. Everything else I already had except the photo in the frame. It was an iPhone picture taken of my own homemade art ala oranges and printed on our printer. The framed looked was created courtesy of my iPhone cover. In other words, completely by accident.

Forgive me, if you find that amusing at most. I really need to get back to real crafting. In the meantime, here’s an old post I did when I had more time. It’s just me putting paintbrush to canvas scared out of my wits whether it’d turn out or not. It sort of turned out like tulips. What do you think?

Floral Acrylic Painting

It was painted after another week of beautiful blooms bought for me by my husband. It’s part of my weekly splurge, a little happy pick me up and something to inspire me for the week. This week I got hydrangeas. Not sure if I can tackle them yet. But we’ll see…
