Sweet Valentine Craft

This combines my love of yarn and my love of crafting (just about anything). Super cute crafty yarn hearts courtesy of Family Chic.

We’re having our grand re-opening at our store this weekend and this is the craft we’ll be offering for our guests. It is the perfect whimsical craft just before Valentine’s Day. […]

Solar Art

As our week of Art Camp progresses we look to the sunshine, and boy do we have plenty of it in July and August.

I suppose you can put most anything on this paper and have fun results. These were my choices…NOT Simon and Gus’s choices.

Art Camp Take I

Cheers….

We decided this summer that we would have an Art Camp. Last summer we rocked a ‘bug camp’ it was supposed to be a few days and ended up being 2+ weeks once the boys got a taste for it. We like to make up […]

Fabric Crayons (in the Rain)

This weather always reminds me of our rainy day beanbags. Today we needed a quick project to entertain us for about an hour, while it poured outside. We were already on a coloring kick so I thought I’d throw in the Fabric Crayons to switch things up a bit.

This wall was screaming for something exciting. We couldn’t let it down. Simon did a lot of […]

I was looking for some simple cotton fabric, and of course I couldn’t resist the cotton robot flannel. I wanted something soft that I could use on the outside of a rice bag. I also got some muslin to use for the insides. I have a kiddo that is prone […]

Garland for Gus

We spent some time making something fun this past weekend. It was a group effort, totally kid friendly…er at least 4 and 6 year old friendly. My big kid especially got into it. I didn’t really let on entirely what we were making so we started off by pulling out […]

Wool Felt Patchwork Valentines

What to do with a pile of Wool Felt this big?

For the past two years I’ve made felt Valentine’s for my sweetest little loveys. I’m constantly impressed by the wide array of stitches my sewing machine is capable of. I wish I could take credit for the […]

Paper Piecing Take II

I didn’t get to go into a ton of detail on paper piecing in my last post, but the main reason I wanted to post another entry on this same subject is so I could show off my pieces. I’m pretty proud of the way they turned out, and honestly the process […]

Paper Piece Quilting

This is a post I’ve been waiting to do for months. I’m breaking my pattern a bit of featuring a crafty friend, but I figured since this project was a great big collaboration it was a safe thing to do. Well, and this is my craft blog after all, so I guess […]
