Crafting has been extra light as I’ve been working on not-as-exciting corporate design projects, but sometime in the next week or so, I’ll be sharing an even cooler version of the kids’ little cardboard house. (And the way I styled the house with lights above — definitely a big-kid thing, not for the baby as much as she’d love it and try to eat it.) I spotted Andrea’s houses on Pinterest and love the little neighborhood going on.
Speaking of cardboard, as we worked on cleaning out the garage this weekend, my affinity for boxes and corrugated was made even more obvious. It’s already looking like round two at Ikea will be needed to contain all my shiz. You know it’s problematic when your crafting stuff spans three rooms and two floors, but in a small way that makes me feel proud and legit.
(Ikea demands stamina. Not for the faint of heart.)

I’m happy to share that I am part of HelloBee’s design team and also their newest craft contributor! First up is this cloud shadowbox made out of…paper towel rolls! One of these days I will learn learn how to craft and sculpt with wood so I can produce a more sophisticated version, mark my words, but in the meantime here are instructions to make this upcycled one instead.
And secondly, I helped Bee with this free Summer Fun List printable. I designed two versions; you can choose a list for the fridge, or enjoy the element of surprise by randomly picking activities from a jar. Truth: I am a boring mom and the unpredictability of the jar unnerves me. This will be good practice for me on mellowing out.
Congrats to Melissa, comment number 29, for winning the JetPens giveaway!

I recently made some hair clips for Mara and shared the instructions at Dotcoms for Moms.

Wishing a very happy Fourth of July to my fellow Americans! May we all be proud citizens of this democratic, diverse, wonderfully entrepreneurial and dynamic nation of ours.
And I got behind on posting, so this is stupidly late of me, but I shared a patriotic bunting project over at SheKnows.com. For next year maybe?
And $50 Jet Pens giveway ends on Thursday (only 55 entries so far…chances of winning aren’t bad!)

July 4th is right around the corner, so I designed these printable, patriotic badges. Truth be told, I wanted this to be a button-making DIY, but those machines are pricey! My cheap version can found at Dotcoms for Moms.
