Create Valentines From Kids' Watercolor Art

DIY watercolor valentine cards

My younger daughter loves painting with watercolors and I have piles of her masterpieces to show for it. Gazing at the swirling colors of her latest painting, I was inspired to turn some of her creations into class Valentines. I've written a quick tutorial to show you how I did it.

DIY Sidewalk Gel Paint

Sidewalk Gel Paint Recipe

My youngest was bored last week while her big sister was away at camp. It was a beautiful afternoon outside, so I decided to whip up a batch of sidewalk gel paint. It's simple to make and quick to clean up with a hose. And the best part, it kept her busy for an entire hour!

Are you in need of a summer boredom buster? Check out the recipe below.

Sidewalk gel paint is easy to make from three ingredients.

Replacing Closet Doors With Curtains Made From Bedsheets

Replace closet doors with curtains sewn from bed sheets.

Does anyone else think sliding closet doors and children do not mix? Around here they certainly did not. Icing smashed fingers and wrestling doors back onto their tracks were a weekly occurrence. I had had enough and decided to replace my daughters' closet doors with curtains.

Scrap Busting Fabric Wrapped Wreath

Wreath wrapped with torn fabric strips and yo-yo flowers

Hello! Just dropping in to share my most recent creation, a fabric wrapped wreath for summer. Without any particular plan for it, I purchased a Styrofoam wreath form on clearance. I couldn't pass up a good deal and figured something would eventually come to me.  And finally, after it sat on my desk for weeks, something did!
