Rainbow Bubble SnakesHousing a Forest Summer is here and our family is SO excited! The kids are planning and scheming about what we are going to do this summer. Love it! One of the fun activities that they wanted to try was making bubble snakes that are all over. The best part is they are easy to make and use things that I had laying around my house. Cupcake Mold Pizzas My post for this week is one of the first recipes I pinned. However, the picture I pinned, and all the other ones I found were not linked to an actual recipe. This is what I did as a starting point for the recipe and it almost worked out perfectly. Creative Reuse of Paper : Scrapbooking Affirmations Was doing some “stumbling” yesterday…dangerous activity that. Anyway, on the heels of yesterday mornings paper storage post, I thought this was a wonderful way to not only use up some scrap paper, but also a really positive way to get some scrapbooking affirmations into my life. You don’t even need to do affirmations, you can do inspiring quotes, or little activities that give you joy. [Update 9/24/12] Wow….I’m not sure why, but this page has gone seriously viral.

It was so easy and fun that I ended up doing it three times this week... first with my own kids, then as a project at my son's school, and then with our music class. I have a little bit of PTSD after working with lots and lots of squirrelly little 4 and 5 year olds. In particular my own kids, who tend to just dump out all the paint, smear it all over their bodies, and then run away screaming. They can engage with art projects sometimes, but it's a delicate trick... figuring out what will draw them in.

Fowler Favorite: Monkey Cupcakes Hey everyone! I found the CUTEST cupcakes online and just had to do a post on them... Take a look at these little monkey cupcakes: DIY Wrap Bracelet - Honestly WTF You should all know by now that we are all about stacking bracelets on our wrists. The more, the better.

Free School Pack! The Free School Pack is done just in time for school! These School printables are to be used with children from 2 to 7. These printables were made to go with the book: There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books! by Lucille Colandro Small Measures: Homemade Watercolors I share my home, and my life, with an MFA-toting husband (whose concentration was in painting and color theory), and an active, inquisitive, art-loving 2 year-old. Between the two of them and my own ongoing craft projects and homemade gift-making endeavors, suffice to say, there is a good deal of paint in our lives. Over the winter, I committed myself to organizing our craft/guest/office room. Going through a box of art supplies, I found a very old set of watercolors-as in, freshman-year-of-college-in-’94 old.
