The Party Bracelet

*Project by Malory @ Snips & Spice for the Kids Can Do challenge of season 15* When I was a little girl, we used to make bracelets with safety pins and perler beads.  My sister and I had so much fun making them.  When I thought about crafts kids can do, I remembered how we loved making those bracelets, and often made them with our friends.  I took that basic idea, but updated it with some sparkly beads to create something new: the party … [Continue reading...]

Play & Pretend Dress Up

*Project by Heidi @ greendoodle for the Kids Can Do challenge of season 15* I took my kids to our local children's museum a couple of weeks ago to earn a few Mom Points.  We hit all the favorite spots: veterinarian section, dolls, grocery store, and of course the theater.  As we were leaving, my daughter struck up a conversation with an employee of the museum and let her know in her most adult tone that she felt the museum needed more … [Continue reading...]

Awesome Alien Robots

*Project by Veronica @ Adventures of D & V for the Kids Can Do challenge of season 15* The crafts that I remember having the most fun with as a kid, where the ones where I got to use my imagination.

Scrappy Wall Art: Make Do and Mend

*Project by Heidi @ greendoodle for the Scrap challenge of season 15* This week's submission took a few turns and detours.  I had hoped to create my first ever pieced quilt for the  SCRAP challenge, however I quickly realized that my "first ever pieced quilt" deserved more than a week's time and I needed to take a different direction. Enter... scrappy wall art. I knew I wanted to make a dent in my overflowing fabric scrap drawer.  I am … [Continue reading...]

‘Scrap’tastic Table Runner

*Project by Malory @ Snips & Spice for the Scrap challenge of season 15* I have always loved the stark contrast of black and white--when I was in high school, I thought my future home would be all black and white.  Luckily, I grew out of that idea, but my love affair with the combination has continued.  I am drawn to black and white prints every time I go to the fabric store, and find my scrap stash filled with these prints when I go to … [Continue reading...]

Coupon Organizer with Tabs

*Project by Jess @ Spool & Spoon for the Scrap challenge of season 15* I've never been one to throw out anything so a scrap challenge was right up my alley. I used a couple of remnants from inside my fabric and paper stash to create a pretty and functional coupon organizer. I love this one because it is flat in profile so it doesn't take up a lot of room in my already jam-packed handbag but it's spacey enough to store all of my coupons, … [Continue reading...]
