Baker’s twine and push pins

And a whole lot of wishes for good health. I think Neil might like our new family room decoration when he gets out of the hospital.  It’s simply a length of baker’s twine with a slip knot at each end, held up with thumb tacks. Easy but effective! The kidney stone is still hanging in […]

A banner day

I may have gone just a little bit banner crazy.  I was in the middle of making letter tags to attach to my fabric bunting (because that’s what everyone does the day before a party when half of the house is still in need of a good cleaning, right?) when it occurred to me that […]

The year in review(ish)

Another year, another Project 365.  This was my third one, and I so enjoyed it!  These are a few of my favorite images.  You can see the rest on flickr or picasa (your choice – I’m in both places at the moment, waffling between which I prefer more). This time around I gave myself a […]

Snow day!

It may surprise you to hear that I don’t have a history of doing crafty projects with my kids all of the time.  My kids are plenty creative, but they’ve always preferred to do their making on their own terms.  They’re not much for planned projects.  That’s why, when I said, “hey, do you guys […]

Calendar fun

Let me share what I’ve been playing with today, because I think it’s really nifty.  Paige Balcer of Shutter Sisters shared this set of Photoshop templates that can be used to make a small photo calendar.  The resulting pages are the perfect size to fit inside a CD jewel case for display.  Alternately, a colorful […]

Morning Coffee with Penny Richards

It’s been a long time since we last sat around together for a cup of Morning Coffee and a chat, hasn’t it?  I thought it was high time we rejuvenated this little idea, and so I am happy today to introduce Penny and her blog, Pennamite. Pennamite I think I find it easier to write […]

Seasonal Inspiration Overload Disorder

I don’t know for sure if it happens to me every year, but I do very clearly remember the first time it happened.  It was Spring 2007.  I had just discovered the indie craft movement, and was starting to feel the urge to expand my creative horizons.  I was exploring new blogs, flipping through new […]
