    There’s been quite the call for a tutorial on how to make these little pushpop hats seen in the “ bright future” graduation party! I’m happy to be able to show you how they were made. It wasn’t an extremely scientific process to creating these little hats, so as with all tutorials, I am sure you will find a  more precise way to accomplish the look as you go along.

    Aren’t they adorable?? I couldn’t resist playing with them myself! In mind were these fun animals by matsutake. I cut the paper towel roll into different sized segments for Emily to paint. I love the bright colors she chose! While the rolls were drying, we got to work on the scenery. I did the drawings, and she colored an inexpensive file folder (pack of 10 – $1) to make the scenery for the owls. We even did a day time scene and

This is my garden planning book.     A few years ago my Mom introduced me to this amazing book she made at a scrapbooking class.  I fell in love.  It takes the plain old inter-office envelope, and makes it a thing of bee-a-uuu-tee! I have since made 4, I kid you not.  One for recipes.  One for gardening planning.  One for holding baby memories.  One for holding life dreams.  Click here if you are interested in

    Paper crafts for kids: Fun Fall Activity Tree  We just wrapped up our Summer Activity Checklist with a really fun "ice cream for supper" party.  It was a really great way to end the Summer. Now school has started again, and the weather is getting cooler, so I decided we needed a Fall Activity Checklist.  I thought it would be fun to put each activity on a "leaf", and hang it on a cardboard cut out of a tree.  It isn't fancy... my

    Paper Halloween Banner I am still on a banner kick! But this time I created a Halloween banner out of scrapbook paper and cupcake liners. I really love the simple traditional black and orange together, you can't go wrong. I trimmed my cupcake liners to a small, medium, large layout and distressed them on the edges, just a little, with black ink. I also distressed the edges of the white circle that I cut from cardstock. I cut 1" strips from coordinating scrapbook paper
