Work-in-Progress Wednesday: DIY Christmas Cards for the Classroom

Welcome to another Work-in-Progress Wednesday! Today, Princess Anna and I were working on her Christmas cards for school.  I don't know about you, but I always feel guilty when the kids bring home cards from most of the other kids when we didn't send any.  So here I am making our own.  Because (I think) it's cheaper.  You just need some cardstock; some printer paper; some glue or double-sided tape; some crayons, markers, or colored pencils; and of course ink in your printer.  Unless of course you want to draw everything by hand, in which case...more power to you!  But…

Planning for Summer: Being Creative

One of the most important things to me when parenting my children is encouraging their creativity and the creative process.  Since the start of my parenting journey, I've been all for creative play: less about the toys that do things for you and more about the dolls and legos, crayons, paper, etc.  Apparently I did a good job of this too, because my kids have this knack for making just about anything using paper and an ENTIRE roll of tape. So that being said, of course I am all for encouraging creativity throughout the summer.  Here are some of the…

Scrapbooking (and Smashing!) Heaven

Yesterday, I was on the hunt for lots of miscellaneous scrapbooking and smash booking STUFF.  At this point, I really don't remember exactly what I was looking for, but I'm sure I got way off track in the process anyway.  I have a major problem with scrapbooking supplies.  And digital scrapbooking supplies.  I have yet to really get into digital scrapbooking, but I am seriously considering it.  The only down side is that I can't paste any other additional ticket stubs or keepsakes in it.  (If you have a solution for this, please let me know!) Anyway, I've found a…

Sore Throats Soothers

I had every intention of writing last week, but alas, my plans were foiled once again. I hope all of you out there in the world had a better week than I did! My week started out with an infection, mid-way through I caught the stomach bug, and on Friday I picked up a sore throat...which I found out today is strep throat. Which I also found out today Rapunzel has...along with pinkeye. We are just a mess over here. I think I will be disinfecting my house soon. Although there are remedies that you can take at home (which…

A Disney Frozen Birthday

Yesterday, we celebrated Princess Anna's birthday. Her birthday is actually in the summer, but having had a summer birthday, I know many people will be out of town for her birthday. Because of that reason, I wanted to make sure she had a successful birthday, so we just celebrated 6 months early. As a family, we will celebrate on her birthday, but her friends were able to celebrate with her this weekend. Her newest favorite Disney character is Princess Anna. If you couldn't tell. Anyway, because her favorite character is Princess Anna, of course we had to have a Disney…
