Here's a fun little project I made about a year ago. We use these scripture puppets to help my daughter learn the stories from the Bible and Book of Mormon. I made the basic characters--a king, a prophet, an angel, etc. and we use them over and over. Sometimes I even make "props" to go along with specific stories---cardboard...

Magnetic Paint

I've had a lot of people ask me questions about the paint I used to make my magnetic quiet book. So I thought I'd post a picture of the can so everyone knows what it is and what it looks like. I found it at Michael's in the paint section. At mine, it was hidden on the bottom...
In one week my brother-in-law is getting married. Everyone has been busy with wedding preparations. The bride chose black and white as her wedding colors, so we purchased this polka dot fabric for a project, then decided to go with something else. What do you do with six yards of extra fabric? Make matching skirts for all the granddaughters,...
Here are a few more pages from the magnetic quiet book. Admittedly, I haven't finished the pioneer page...I still need to make game pieces. But you get the idea from the picture. The child rolls the dice and moves their piece along the game board, following the directions printed on each square. The winner is the first to make it...
Okay, I just HAD to share this blog I stumbled upon today. Arlette is the author of Polka Dot Pineapple http://mousechirpy-polkadotpineapple.blogspot.com/ and makes fabulous things that are so cheerful and fun! I was drooling over the million-and-one ways she uses yo-yos! This photo is just a little taste of what you'll find on her blog. Isn't this little bouquet...
I thought I'd add a few more pictures from the quiet book I made for my daughter. First up is the "Build-A-Snowman" page. Each piece is moveable and the kids can build the snowman however they want. I plan to make female accessories too...a flowered hat, scarf, purse...fun stuff like that. On the second page, kids get to sort a stack...
I found a great website today. You can type in any words or text that you want and it makes it into word art for you! It even lets you choose different fonts and colors! Wow, I could really waste a lot of time playing with this one, but I think it has many potential creative applications. You could...
These bars have become one of my favorite treats to make. Who doesn't love a treat involving chocolate, caramel and oats? They are ooey-gooey and oh so delicious. I now keep caramel ice cream topping on hand just so I can make this recipe! WARNING: Make these bars at your own risk... seriously, you can't eat just one! Ingredients: 1 cup all-purpose...
Looking for something fresh, tasty, and super simple for dinner? Have I got the recipe for you! I made this for dinner tonight. It tasted like I'd been in the kitchen for hours, but I had it on the table in less than 30 minutes. And it didn't heat up the house!* 1 package frozen cheese tortellini* 2 boneless,...

Wedding Card

Thought I would share this wedding card I made since it is that time of year. Anyone else getting bombarded with wedding invitations?! To make this lovely card, I sketched a dress shape onto beautiful shimmery paper and cut it out, then made a skirt overlay of vellum. The bride's wedding colors were chocolate brown and pink, so of...
