Easter Goodies

Easter is my MOST favorite holiday. How could you not love the pastel colors, the spring blossoms, the fun activities for kids, and the message of hope? We made this adorable Lamb Cake with the kids, who were able to do much of the decorating, because it was fairly easy. Plus they really wanted to […]

Creative Estates retreat

I spent last weekend in the cute mountain town of Flagstaff, Arizona, with 36 other bloggers and crafters. It was 3 days of crafting, socializing & getting NO sleep (too much activity & too hard of a floor)! Here are a few pics from the weekend! I made the banner, water bottle wraps and cupcake […]

Valentine’s Gift Card Holder

I made one version of this gift card holder for teachers, because that’s how I intend to use it, but I also made one without a named recipient, so it can be used for coworkers, bosses, employees, coaches, friends and more!  Because of the hearts, it works great for Valentine’s Day, but it doesn’t specifically […]

{Tutorial} Valentine’s Day Heart Pockets

My mother, a retired teacher, used to make these with her students every year. She hung them on the bulletin board for February decor, plus during the Valentine’s party, classmates could add valentine cards to the pockets. Here are some examples of the finished product. My mother, the most creative person I know, made all […]

{FREEBIE} Gingerbread Playdough Topper

I decided to make some homemade Gingerbread Playdough for my son’s classmates as soon as I saw the idea on Pinterest. But I knew it would be cost prohibitive to buy 20+ mason jars to package them the way she did. So I made this printable topper that can be printed and stapled to the […]

Let the Holiday Party season begin!
