Coffee Filter Flowers – Guest Post

I have another toddler craft project over at My Craftily Ever After. I know it's not spring yet, but you can make a bouquet of these bright flowers and pretend like it is! This craft is super simple but a lot of fun. I think I enjoyed making them just as much as Evie did and we keep making more all the time. Head over to my Craftily Ever After to get the full tutorial! Also in a completely unrelated note, look at this awesome picture that Evie drew on the iPad. ... Read More

Try it Tuesday – Sharpie Mug

I mentioned that this year I put Evie to work making Christmas gifts. One of the things she made was a Sharpie mug, which I've seen floating around Pinterest for months now. There are so many different tutorials, but they are all pretty standard, here's a good one from Somewhat Simple. A Beautiful Mess has a cute version too. This was actually a recent Try it Tuesday project over at Trends with Benefits, the Try it Tuesday pioneers! We went to Michael's and she picked out pink, purple, and blue Sharpies for this mug for her grandpa. They aren't the most manly ... Read More
