Whatever Floats Your Boat

No matter how many times it happens, I am always amazed what a group of young children can come up with when left to their own devices. Yesterday afternoon, we made boats. Other than providing materials, and the direction to make a boat that floats (of course!) I left them to discover on their own.…

Sweet Little Fairy

Another little miss had her birthday last week.  This young lady loves fairies, so when I saw a tutorial for fairy bendy dolls, I knew what to do! Isn’t she cute? The birthday girl aslo enjoys making things, so I also included all the materials so that she can make a family of fairies on…

Sock Snowmen

Is anyone else out there just a little addicted to Pinterest?  I have only been on the site for the last two weeks, but have found it to be an amazing resource for creative ideas, as well as a way to finally get my overloaded “Favourites” file under control!   And for someone who likes to…

Make Your Own Evergreen Christmas Wreath

Make Your Own Evergreen Christmas Wreath

Last year I shared with you how my mother-in-law taught me how to make an evergreen wreath.  This year we gathered with the whole family (my brother-in-law and sister-in-law, too!) to make them again.  We started our outing at our land to gather the evergreen boughs, and after a long (and somewhat wet!) hike we…

Starting the Year with Giving

UFOs – Stopping the Invasion

Just about anyone with a crafty hobby knows what UFOs are (and no, I am not referring to an extraterrestrial invasion!).  They are the unfinished objects that were started and then abandoned in favour of newer, more exciting, more pressing, or easier (!) projects.  They lurk in hidden corners of the sewing or craft room,…

A Handmade Holiday

I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas holiday!  Hubby and I packed up the car on Christmas Eve (and boy was it packed!) and headed over the river and through the woods (literally) to his parent’s house where we spent the holidays with all of his family.  It was a wonderful Christmas full…
