Leopard Print Sneakers

I love my Spicoli black and white checkered Vans. Love them. I get that they are in no way a grown up shoe, but I am very much not a grown up so we get along well together. They are as classic as a pair of Chuck’s, but not quite as common. Apparently not every […]

Crochet Hair Bow

This is our last Fumbling Friday Crochet post! (I tried to get artsy with the photo. That is what that is all about.) After a month of the most basic crochet projects I can officially say I am a fan. I always stayed away from crochet and favored knitting because…I’m not sure why. I guess […]

Play Dough Stampers

Bubba and I used to attend a parent-child class that was quite amazing. It was a parent education class where the kids got to play in an jaw dropping play area while half of the parents learned about a topic. The next week the parents all switched places and the other half of the class […]

DIY Triple Strand Bracelet Remix

Since we are all about the triple bracelet today, I wanted to share my remix version. I made this one for my mom. She is a bit more of a print and wild color lady than I am. So she got a print and wild color. The process is the exact same as the original, […]

Triple Strand Bracelet Giveaway

I am hosting my first giveaway! After a year of crafting, finished projects are starting to pile up at the old homestead. Every once in a while I am going to run a little contest to giveaway a completed project I have made. I am starting with the Triple Strand Bracelet from last week. This […]

Crochet Heart Chain Ornament

It took me a long time to come up with a name for this craft. I am still not sure I know what a Crochet Heart Chain Ornament is, but I do know that I made one. This Fumbling Friday craft is one step up from last week. It involves actual crocheting. Imagine that! I […]

Caramel Apple Pie Ice Cream Sandwiches

I’d like to clarify something right from the start in this post: Caramel Apple Pie Ice Cream Sandwiches are mother-loving amazing. Like, “Am I weeping with joy as I chew?” kind of amazing. I’m not going to write a bunch of fluff about these bad boys. That wastes valuable eating time. Ingredients For the Filling […]

DIY Family Phrase Poster

I have days where I feel like I’m doing it all wrong. I am clearly failing as a mother to these children and it has caused us to end our days with screaming and frustration and tears. I start off in the morning  with the best intentions and all the wisdom from 1,000 parenting books […]

Chain Stitch Ribbon

  Our first crochet project is SO crazy simple I almost don’t even want to call it crocheting. The chain stitch is the first step in crocheting any project. This chain stitch ribbon is pretty much a genius idea for the beginning crocheter because 1) it allows you to practice the most basic step over and […]

Rubber Footed Kid Table

Sis and Bubba spent a majority of our summer at home hours playing on our front porch. You might wonder why they choose the front porch over the grass/plant/water table filled back yard. It is because that same back yard is also frequently home to dog poop land mines that they are not fond of […]
