instant artwork...

 It's funny how just adding a frame 
can add importance to any area.

We started with Hazel & Ruby's 

We sprayed a sheet of white paper with
Imagine Crafts. Next we scribbled
around the letters with the 

 The ink is AMAZING!
It puddles and pools and
dries really thick.

Such great texture.

Perfect reminder for me to read more
(really it should just say "turn off The
Real Housewives of New Jersey").
Happy Crafting!

trapped spiders Halloween plates....

 Here's a spooky idea for 
a quick Halloween dinner setting before 
your trick or treaters head out the door.

We used clear Chinet plates in 2 sizes.
The smaller plate goes on the bottom,
and then "trap" the spider by using
 Mod Podge to glue the big plate on top.

 Your kids can move their plate around
and the trapped spider scurries about.

 Perfect for Halloween.

Happy Haunting!

to catch a lightning bug...

This is an easy craft for your
baby food jars.
 Our baby food of choice is Beech-Nut.
Pure and healthy food with 
beautiful recyclable glass jars.

We pulled some flame-less tea lights
from our stash.

 Next we created these little paper
lightning bugs.

 They were taped right on to the 

 Light up it up and place in the jar.

Perfect for a night light, birthday party
or outdoor BBQ!

hey there cupcake...

These cupcakes are a perfect Birthday treat.

Print some photos on regular copy paper
and cut them out.

 Grab your Mod Podge.

 Dip some toothpicks in...

 and place them on the back of the cut outs.

 Turn them over and apply a thin coat of 
Mod Podge on the top.

Once they are dry, stick the toothpicks into the cupcake.

So cute and easy!

 Slap on some paint.

Remove the letters and then

flashback simple artwork....

This project would be great in a nursery 
or play area because its so light weight 
and safe above a crib.  It also soothes by 
gently fluttering in the wind.

I used 20 pieces of gray paper and a foam 
poster board from the dollar store.

I started with a small stack of paper,

 then cut it into 6 inch fourths.

 I curled the flaps up,

and taped the sheets on to the foam board.

Continue until you reach the top of the board.

It looks different from every angle.

So simple and cool.
