I traveled to my liquor store in hopes they would have old wine boxes I could use for a craft or mommy project. I was given this old wine box which the store was throwing away. I sat in my living-room looking at it and realized all the books my children threw all over the floor and I had nothing to keep them organized. I placed all their books in the wine box and it looks pretty fantastic.
I love you THIS MUCH! Trace your child’s hands and fold accordion shaped paper in between. Glue to each end of the hands and space it so the words THIS MUCH fit across the blocks throughout accordion shaped/folded paper.
A simple Apple Pie can become the hit of a party with just a simple embellishment. I purchased dough cutters in the shape of fall leafs from Williams Sonoma for $24. I baked the leaf cut outs by themselves and added to the pie after with a little brush of sugar butter.
After visiting my local craft store A.C.Moore, I found these adorable wooden bird-houses for $1. I bought one for each of my two children and a small washable paint set. $3 for each child to enjoy a small “spring” craft project on a rainy day is priceless. These bird houses were given as Mother’s Day gifts to their grandmothers.
MOMMY style grilled cheese. I found this delectable recipe on pinterest.com and had to share! Ever have one of those long days and are craving chocolate & cheese?
Here is the link to the recipe:
“Maybe mistakes are what make our fate… without them what would shape our lives? Maybe if we had never veered off course we wouldn’t fall in love, have babies, or be who we are. After all, things change, so do cities, people come into your life and they go. But it’s comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart… and if you’re very lucky, a plane ride away” ~ Sex & the City
With fate in one hand, I wrestle my two small sons with the other. I am guided by my soul and my selfish need to find my own existence through a blog. I am a 30 something, single mom with two adorable little boys. I have been told countless times that I should have a blog because of my creative mommy crafts and ideas. After finding myself throughout the struggle of my divorce and throughout my 6 years of motherhood..I have finally decided I need something for ME!
Welcome to my creative, savvy, mommy blog ~ Enjoy!!!
