How to: Make a Super Cool Zipper Purse

I made up the following directions, based on experimentation. For my older Girl Scout troop of 10-13 year olds, each girl took 3-4 hours to make her purse. None were very experienced at sewing, so consider this a “beginners” how-to (I just made two purses with flaps in about 3 hours time – writing this […]

Merit Badges for ME

I’ve been a Girl Scout Leader now for seven years. Three or four years ago, my troop got together and surprised me with a vest of my own. I’d made little off hand comments to the parents and girls about how I wished I could earn badges, too. They are all so pretty and I […]

We made simple 4 square checkered pillows. My 7.5 year old daughter loved it so much, she made one completely by herself the next day. Here is […]

Discovering Your Hidden Talents and How to Find New Hobbies

I’ve met a lot of people lately who are feeling stifled and uncreative. They’ve been working hard at parenting, other caregiving (of parents, friends, or other relatives), or in their careers. I hear women, in particular, say there is no time for themselves. No time for pleasure or creativity. No time for peaceful fulfillment of […]
