I have been knee deep in DIY projects lately. I finish one to start another and finish that one to start again. I love it though! I like to keep the creative juices flowing. Plus, when my family or friends need a helping hand, I just can’t refuse! I have posts coming soon about all these DIY projects. I’ve been giving little sneak peaks on Facebook and Instagram, so check those out if you want to see what’s coming up. During these big DIY projects, I did squeeze in a couple smaller projects I want to share you. This project is so easy! If you have a sewing machine, you can whip this up in an hour. Continue reading
Recently, I was sewing up some quick envelope pillow covers and figuring out the measurements for the umpteenth time to cut out the fabric. I thought…boy it sure would be nice if I had made a compiled list of measurements every time I sewed a new pillow cover. Wouldn’t it be much easier than figuring out the math again or digging through old notebooks to find measurements to covers I had sewn before. So, to make my job and yours a little easier next time you want to sew an envelope pillow cover, I’ve made a compiled list. This Envelope Pillow Cover Measurement Guide will be the perfect quick reference tool to save time and brain power. Continue reading
Dr. Seuss’s Birthday was Monday and our school throws down big time for that man! The whole week is a huge event! The PTO holds a costume contest, decks the school out from top to bottom, and gives out Seuss style snacks. The Second Grade puts on a special Seussical Musical and the school staff put on an amazing spirit day in honor of Dr. Seuss! It’s a huge event and I love it! This is one of my most favorite activities for the whole school year! I got to thinking what should Garrett be this year??? Continue reading

“It’s not about what it is-it’s about what it can become!”-Dr. Seuss
I took a picture from a book. I gave that book a real good look. I had a challenge in my sight. I grabbed that book and held on tight. No challenge was gonna keep me away. I knew it was time to come out and play. I grabbed my pencil and notepad. I knew had to draw it up real bad. A light bulb went off, in my head. “Hobby Lobby!”, is what I said. I got together what I’d need. I wrote down instructions that you can read. Now it’s your turn, if you dare. Go make something with a little care. Have some fun, on the way. It’s your turn to go out and play!
I hope you are enjoying my series on “All Things Dr. Seuss.” I now bring you Green Eggs and Ham! This is right, yes I am! I’m continuing my post from Sam I am! Continue reading
