Valentine’s Day Butterfly Craft with Kids

My daughter has inherited my crafty genes and will “do projects” any chance she gets. We have piles of things cut, glued, glittered, and stuck together everywhere. I try to channel this creative energy into projects that are somewhat organized and, more importantly, will leave my house! Valentine’s Day provides a perfect excuse to use […]

It’s one of Alamo City Moms Blog‘s ABCs of summer activities, so I put it on my summer bucket list and promised myself that we would go before school started. And, we did it! It […]

Preserving Family Memories – The Easy Way

The summer between sophomore and junior year in college, my roommate Katie and I scrapbooked our summer away. In between summer school classes, we’d marathon-watch movies and cut, glue, embellish, and tape our memories from the last year onto 12×12 pages and put them in our three post binders. We spend a LOT (like, a […]
