It’s a little too early for this stuff, right? But in case you’re one to get a jump-start on Halloween, here’s an easy craft to do with the kids! Instructions are at Hellobee.

Didn’t mean for the blog to go dark for so long (almost an entire month, oops!). But within the last few weeks we learned that our landlord sold the house we’re renting so we’ve spent a considerable amount of time searching and finally securing a new place. If you want to drive your kids crazy, drive them all over Charlotte to view house after house after house. Then, milkshakes for dinner would be totally justified.
The house is slowly being overrun with boxes so I won’t be working on any new projects until after the move, but this DIY rocket we made earlier this month is now up at Hellobee!

I worked on these a few weeks back and my post went up just today on Hellobee! I’ve been excited to share. Visit here for instructions and more pictures.

One of my July projects for Hellobee was this mini treehouse and peg doll set. I admit it may look a little on the sparse side, but I was going for simple so it can double as a display shadowbox when not in use. And my youngest son played with it non-stop for a few days (before moving on to a new set of Legos, naturally) but what can I say? My kids are used to playing with recycled items and whatever cardboard creations I throw their way, especially finding fun when adding in their own action figures, cars, and funny dialogue.
Full instructions can be found here!

Since it’s too late to greet you with a happy 4th, I’ll wish you a happy July instead! The celebratory month that sees the birth of our nation and incidentally, the founding of Chipotle as I’ve just learned today.
Below are some early previews of projects I completed this weekend. I love working on children’s crafts. There’s a lot of latitude in how cutesy a project can get as long as it’s intended for kids.
And after years and years of wanting to do something with this vintage sideboard that I literally found on the side of the road, I rescued it from its sad state by giving it a makeover. I didn’t think to take a before picture with the doors and drawers, but I think you can easily tell it needed a good dose of TLC. We’re really happy with it and I’ve received lots of compliments from the kids on my painting skills.
