I am going to be honest I really don’t like Valentine’s Day but the Princess has been bugging me to make some Valentine’s Day stuff for out house.  I decided I wanted to make a wreath which is also funny because I am not the biggest wreath fan unless it is for Christmas.  I also … Continue reading

Angry “Whirly” Bird

My children like most children are a tad obsessed with Angry Birds, Booga especially if he could have an Angry Bird drive a Train it would be the greatest thing ever.  I have been really trying to do more projects with Booga but he has the attention of a 3 year old boy (imagine that) … Continue reading

Scout Key Chains – Teaching the Law

The project was originally a SWAP Project that I modified for a cute keepsake and reminder of the Girl Scout Law. My girls are 5-7 year olds since this was our first project I was unsure of their skill level.  I wanted to make it as pain free and easy as possible for both them … Continue reading
