How to make: Homemade Lightbox and t-shirt decorating with bleach pen

For Father’s Day presents, we had a lot of fun making decorated t-shirts.  Click here for a bunch of really cool examples (with directions). Since those turned out so nice, I decided to have a try at putting my Wright on Time books turtle logo onto some shirts.  I printed out the design as large […]

How to Make: Fun (Quick and Easy) T-shirt for Dad — using a Bleach Pen

Trying to come up with Father’s Day crafts for my Girl Scout troop this year was quite a challenge!  We’ve been making crafty things together for nearly eight years and it seems like we’ve made everything there is to be made.  Then, I thought, it’s been a LOOOONG time since we’ve decorated t-shirts…  To do […]

Making the World a Better Place — One Anonymous Act at a Time

Nowadays it seems as though everyone wants credit for everything and they also want to get permission (and funding) to do it first.  I love the idea of doing something anonymously and paying for it myself (whether through my time or actual dollars).  If everyone did something, just imagine what a nicer world we’d be […]

Teagan’s Flower Fun (handmade board game)

For a recent Girl Scout meeting, one of the older girls planned a super cool activity for the younger girls:  They each got to make their own board game!  Coming up with the rules, name of the game, and goal for the game was really fun for my daughter. Click here for “How to: Make […]

Where does your Creativity come from?

When I describe a typical day with my children to a stranger I’m often greeted with, “Wow, you are so creative.” I’m then asked where I get my creativity and how I come up with such fun things to do with my kids. I’ve thought a lot about this and I realize that I believe […]

How to: Make a Star Trek Guinan Hat

Only 4 days until Super Star Trek Sunday on February 1st.  In preparation for the costume contest, I’ve been assembling costume parts for my family and myself.  After much debate, I’ve decided to dress up as one of my favorite Star Trek characters: Guinan. Since I was drawn to the purple/eggplant outfits of Guinan’s, I’ll […]

Let it Snow! (Southern Arizona Style)

While Arizona does get snow (quite a lot in the mountains — especially in the north part of the state), here in the lower altitudes of southern Arizona snow is a rare thing.  To liven up our living space and to make the place feel more wintery, we’ve made snowflakes out of coffee filters.  They […]

How to: Make a Photo Collage Clock

My kids love making letters and numbers with their bodies.  To use their number photographs in an extra fun way, we decided to make collage clocks using 12″ blank clock faces from ClockParts.com.  The parts are great and the directions are fantastic — full of lots of neat ideas! Here is how we made ours: […]
