Crafts and Ideas for a Kid Friendly Road Trip. Planning on taking a vacation this summer and what some tips for a Kid Friendly Road Trip? We are smack dab in the middle of a 4000 mile road trip. Sanity…trying to remember what that feels like:) All in all, my girls have been pretty stinking good this trip. We’ve only had a few meltdowns and unscheduled side of the road potty breaks (and just a little car sick episode). Part of what has kept us going and doing so well is the awesome craft bag we packed full of...Read More
Today my little princess turns four!!! I can hardly believe my little peanut is that big. It seems like only yesterday I was holding my sweet little 6 lb. precious baby and now she’s four…time really does go faster when you are a parent. Like warp speed fast! This was her first year in preschool and through the course of the year she discovered that “you have to bring cupcakes to school for your birthday, mom. It’s the rules!” For weeks leading up to her birthday she would remind me not to forget her cupcakes. I asked her...Read More
I have seen some absolutely GENIUS craft ideas floating around the web. One of my favorites involves taking Paint Chips (the little sample paint color cards you can get at Home Depot, Lowe’s, Walmart…anywhere that sells paint) and using them in lieu of your traditional cardstock or craft paper…such an amazing idea!!! I have tinkered a bit with these paint chips (on a very small scale.) I am a big weenie and am too afraid to take more than one of a color at a time. While I realize that there is no “paint chip gestapo” waiting to count my cards to make sure I’m taking a “reasonable amount” for a “reasonable purpose”…I am a confrontation avoider by nature and can’t bring myself to risk it!!!). I actually worry about these things!!! I usually have to rely on my husband to do any “secret missions” for me…even BOOing our neighbors for Halloween, I made him ring the doorbell and run (I hid in the car). The irony is my secret ambition is to be Sydney Bristow from the show Alias (do you remember that one with Jennifer Garner?). Alas, there is no way I could handle being a secret double agent for the CIA, but a girl can dream right?!? The paint chips are awesome to work with…I actually really love the texture and the colors pop!!! Here I...Read More
