St. Patrick’s Day 2013 {Fun holiday traditions}

I am a little bummed that I got sick (just a cold, thank goodness) right around this holiday because I didn’t end up making some of the fun things I had planned.

Father’s Day Decoration Crafts {DIY Craft Ideas}

Cortney, at Better Mom Blog, celebrated Father’s Day in style by making some cute and easy Father’s Day decorations. I love that she used things that most people have around the house (ie – random scraps of paper) and all the crafts were easy to make so even a crafting novice can do it. The tie toppers were made by cutting out a tie design out of paper and then glueing a ring of elastic...
