    Few things are quite so handy as a drawstring bag. Small ones can be used to hold wee treasures like necklaces and lost teeth. Large ones can be used to wrap odd shaped presents like Teddy Bears and wooden trucks. They are great for holding lots of loose pieces, like a gathering of acorns or building blocks. No matter what size youRead More →

A few days ago I was poking around in Etsy, when I came upon this awesome shop, ATERGcrochet, owned by Greta Tulner, from Netherlands. It is one of the most colorful shops in Etsy World, and I immediately fell in love with her crocheted creations. I was especially drawn to her beautiful Crocheted Christmas balls. Aren’t they incredible? Well, she sells the pattern for them, andRead More →

Early in the Fall, I realized that Fairy had outgrown basically all of her sweaters. So of course I set off to rectify that situation. One of the main places she wears sweaters is in the dance studio. When I asked her what she wanted she just said “light blueRead More →

I woke up at 6:00 Monday morning with an idea. I must dream in crafts, because I often wake up with some scathingly brilliant or totally lame idea… my dreams don’t always transfer well to wakefulness! Anyway, I knew I wanted to add something to Bug’s Art Supply Messenger Bag,Read More →

Back in early November, I had my idea for Bug’s Christmas gift. He LOVES to draw, and I thought it was high time he had his own supplies. So, I got him a sketch book, a couple of “how to draw” books, and a nice set of pencils and erasers. Read More →

I have been busy finishing up Christmas gifts for the wee ones. I thought I might spend some time this week sharing their gifts, plus a tutorial on the drawstring bags I made for the Little Lady and Pixie. First off… every year I buy the grandbabies a piece toRead More →

We have this little “Charlie Brown” Christmas tree in our family room. The big one, with all the bells and whistles is in the living room centered in the big front window. It is beautiful and holds all our fancy ornaments but we like all of our nooks and cranniesRead More →
