DIY Dr. Seuss Temporary Tattoos

Craft Lighting is when a group of bloggers share crafts that take 15 minutes or less to make. I am excited about participating in my first session of Craft Lightning. This month’s theme is Dr. Seuss. My kids are still in elementary school so Dr. Seuss’s birthday is a big event at school. I created these Dr. Seuss temporary tattoos of the Cat in the Hat’s hat, the Lorax’s mustache and green eggs and ham to bring to the class parties! They are super easy to make and [continue reading]

DIY Love You A Latte Mug

I have mentioned before that I love chai tea lattes. They warm me up and relax me at the same time. Just typing the previous sentence made me daydream a little! I also love puns and have wanted to make a “love you a latte” (I know you chuckled) mug for quite a while. When I found a ceramic mason jar mug on clearance for 70% off (only $1.80!) after Christmas I knew that it was time to make my mug idea a reality. I suffer from crafting [continue reading]

Stamped With Love Digital Scrapbook Templates

My new Stamped With Love Templates are inspired by postage stamps. They are perfect to scrapbook the people or things that you love. My husband and I are celebrating a wedding anniversary soon. We don’t have many pictures of the two of us, but this selfie was one I took of us recently. My daughter loves LEGO Friends and we are fortunate to live within driving distance of LEGOLAND Florida. She was thrilled to have met three of the five main LEGO Friends. We hope to meet the [continue reading]

DIY Butterfly Labels For IKEA BRANÄS Rattan Basket

I have had my IKEA Expedit shelves for a year and a half. The bottom row of my Expedit contains five IKEA BRANÄS rattan baskets. The baskets hold my craft supplies. I’ve wanted to make labels for them for a long time and this month’s Silhouette Challenge of “organization” gave me the nudge I needed. I wanted labels with personality. When I saw butterfly wood shapes at Dollar Tree, I knew I wanted to use them as the base for my labels. Supplies for 5 labels: 5 wooden [continue reading]

Frequently Asked Questions About Project 365

I have been doing Project 365 since January 1, 2009. A few days ago I had breakfast with a friend. We talked about photos and I mentioned Project 365.

All the questions she asked me were questions that I have been asked many times so I decided to write it all down in a frequently asked questions format. If [continue reading]

Love Notes for Preschool or Kindergarten Teachers

For teacher gifts on Christmas, birthdays or teacher appreciation, I usually combine a gift card with a handmade gift. My son in in kindergarten and the students in his class are super sweet! I thought I would harness some of their sweetness into “love notes.” This project is made super simple by the use of Project Life journaling cards. There were 20 journaling cards in the Happy Edition which was perfect because there are 19 students in my son’s class. That leaves one card leftover for the cover. [continue reading]
