helping you live a creative life


The world is but a canvas to the imagination.
~ Henry David Thoreau

Kids love crafts. There's no denying that.

For my girls, the day wouldn't be complete without doing some coloring, or drawing, or sewing.

And I love it.

I secretly squeal with happiness when one of them asks to do some crafting. I'm so glad we share this love.

I want as many people to experience the pleasure of creating something with your hands. Especially my girls.

Today I challenge you to encourage a child to be creative. Your son, step-daughter, grandchild, niece or next-door neighbor.

Who knows? The pleasure they find may inspire you to get crafty too!


5 Things I'm Loving


This list of books to encourage creativity in your children. I know Harold and the Purple Crayon was a favorite of my oldest daughter.

Creative food hacks? Yes, please! The pancake Popsicle looks especially tasty.

Christmas ornaments are such a fun craft for kids. They can choose the colors and materials, and make a great gift for family members and friends. I'll be helping my girls make these this week.

More coloring pages for grown-ups. These are fun to work on while your child colors next to you. So relaxing, too!

The girls need new mittens, and it's just about mitten-wearing weather. If I have time, I'll knit them each a pair. If not, I can make them from old sweaters. You can too, with this tutorial from Martha Stewart (who else?).

Hey there!

Did you have a nice Thanksgiving weekend? We sure did. Two turkey dinners, a movie out with the girls, and some great sales on yarn for me!

I'm busy getting ready for my next craft fair on Friday and Saturday. I'll be at Christ Church in Wilmington, DE. Here's the link with the information if you'd like to stop by.

Have a creative week!

Until next time,
