Got Broken Crayons? Make New Ones!

Got Broken Crayons? I sure do! Kids + Crayons = Broken Crayons. I am not a math genius, but that is one equation I know very, very well! One of my kids even decided that he was going to break every single crayon he owned just so he could fit them in a particular holder. …

Digital Scrapbooking with a Chromebook

Since I started blogging, I’ve started to really look into digital scrapbooking. Digital scrapbooking is when you edit pictures to make things like collages, cards, and even actual scrapbooks or photo albums.  I have done it in the past using Shutterfly and in person at Walmart.

Baby Washcloth Re-Do

Over the past two summers, I’ve been getting to know my sewing machine. Mind you, I’ve had it for about 9 years. I can’t do anything fancy like sew myself a wardrobe or anything, but I can thread the bobbin and sew a straight line, sorta. I started with a pillow case for my son’s …
