“More than brilliant, creative and imaginative”

I’m not quite sure why, but for the last few years my family has not eaten much breakfast cereal, so I was always disappointed when I saw awesome crafts using cereal boxes. But recently my husband (who does all the grocery shopping, lucky for me!) started buying cereal again, so I’ve been squirreling away the boxes […]

Paintbox Quilt

My son’s surgery went well, and we are home after a rough night in the hospital. He likes his new robot very much and is still thinking about what to name him.

I think I might have picked the most complicated project in the book to start, the Origami Organizer, but 1) it just leaped out at me as a cool project […]
