I made this activity book for Lara's birthday. It's made out of old clothes and some Freecycled fabric, and has pages of clothes-fastener activities with facing pages featuring poems about the fasteners. The pages are each stuffed with two layers of felt I had around the house. I cropped the poems (which I wrote) out the pictures, but I am transcribing them under each page. I'm so happy with how it came out! Good thing too, because it took fo-e-vah to make.
Want to make a custom-painted t-shirt right now, using stuff you probably already have on hand? You don't need to run to the store to pick up special fabric paint! You can fix acrylic craft paint onto your fabric using something you already have in your kitchen cabinets. Can you guess what it is?
Are you ready? Are your kids? UPDATE: spreadsheet available at this link Alright. I know you all know about 72 hour kits and there are tons of websites with ideas and information about these, but as I was updating mine, I had a lot of people ask about what I put in it and how to go about it (how did people know I was updating you ask?

Aren't these little guys great?!?! When I showed Aaron the link for these cupcakes he didn't skip a beat and asked if we could make some. We had no occasion to make them for, but who needs an occasion for cupcakes? Then we decided that these would be a fun Family Home Evening treat. So he made some yesterday!

For me, January is all about organization! I realize I'm not the only one... But each year when I start putting Christmas away, I get the itch to start organizing. Every. space. in. my. house! Yesterday I literally spent all day long organizing. From the basement to the office; from the pantry to the sock drawer!
I held onto Gracie's (now 4) hospital stuff for awhile, not wanting to get rid of it, but not at all sure what the heck to do with it. Exactly what are you supposed to do with the very first shirt your kid ever in their life wore? And that tiny little hat... and one of those itsy bitsy little diapers I couldn't bear to throw away (clean, of course!) Then one day, I thought: OH! Shadow box the little suckers! So I did.
