I am so in love with this project. It was inspired by a trip to Walmart where I discovered chalk Easter eggs among the Easter display. As soon as I saw them I thought, “Hey, I could make those.” I have seen people make their own sidewalk chalk using toilet paper rolls to form the […]
I have been known to make overly complicated decorations for parties. But sometimes, it is the easy decorations that are the most striking. As is the case with these hanging jellyfish decorations from my daughter’s The Little Mermaid Party (also to be used for my daughter’s Octonauts party later this month). So pretty, right?

Yesterday was the last day of winter break for my Kindergartener, so to celebrate we decided to get crafty for Valentine’s Day. I love the way our sun catchers turned out so much, they may stay up long after Valentine’s Day. After all, what’s a playroom without a few handmade hearts? This is a super […]

As much as I love the annual pumpkin carving (and I really do love it), I am also a fan of no-carve pumpkin decor. Creating no-carve pumpkins give me the ability to be creative and enjoy my results all month. For that reason, I have an ever-growing collection of faux pumpkins that I have decorated. Each year I make something new, and this year I decided to create my pumpkin with Duck Tape®.
