Marble Painting "Tutorial"

Another fun activity we did over spring break was marble painting! I've seen the idea all over social media and thought we'd try it for ourselves. 

O Planner, My Planner

I have always been a big fan of having a planner. I like being organized and seeing everything in front of me. I also like to make my planners colorful and put things in them that make me happy since I look at it every day. 

Tutorial: Paper Plate Rainbow Ribbon Collage

Froot Loop suddenly loves to do simple crafts with me. FINALLY, all the craft supplies I’ve bought for him are being used, and most of the crafts are so simple that I can do them with Cocoa Puff too. We love our craft time now!

Tutorial: Paper Plate Sunshine Craft

“You are My Sunshine” is the first song I sang to both of my boys, and it is my go-to song whenever one of them needs some extra comfort. It holds special meaning to me because it was the song my dad sang to me when I was little as well. I love this song and I always will.

Tutorial: Fall Painting 3 Ways

It’s always the BEST DAY EVER when I get the paint out around here. Froot Loop has recently REALLY gotten into painting with brushes and instruments, although he still doesn’t like finger painting at all. Sensory issues… I have tried painting with Cocoa Puff a few times and he really seems to enjoy it if he’s in a good mood.

Tutorial: Turkey Can Handprint Craft

Thanksgiving! Some people call it Turkey Day, which sort of gets on my nerves a little, but really, the meal (at least the eating part) is all about the turkey, so I can see why it’s called that. 

This is a super cute turkey craft that can easily be used as centerpieces at your table or as cute gift boxes. This craft features your kiddos, but really, it’s going to have to be assembled by you, or your older kids.

Tutorial: Toilet Paper Roll and Foam Tree Craft

I love autumn. I love the cooler weather and all the fun food and back when I lived out east, I LOVED the leaves changing color. I still love it, but we don’t really have a beautiful foliage down here in South Texas.

A Sneak Peek

Here is a little sneak peek into our lives. Normally Honey Graham is working, but he works from home. He's awesome with helping me around the house and with the boys. I'd be lost without him.
