One of my favorite quotes, attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson, is "Be silly. Be honest. Be kind." Doesn't that just cover everything? It's exactly what I wish for my daughter. Enjoy the silly, goofy things. Tell the truth. And just be nice. So simple, but so powerful.
And now for something completely different!
I've been playing around with SVG files. This one speaks a truth that anyone who has a Nana knows is true - Nanas just give the best hugs!
Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away, and it’s the perfect time to get crafty with the little ones! Even at 8 years old, Kay still loves the kinds of crafts that are truly "hands-on" - as in, how can she make this painting project into a sensory experience? Perhaps that's why I was drawn to these fun ideas from Personal Creations!

Several years ago, my aunt passed away suddenly. She left a significant chunk of money to her nieces and nephew. This surprising windfall, which should have been a blessing, given in kindness as it was, turned out to be a nightmare.

Have you ever tried crafting with iron-on vinyl? It is so much easier than I expected!
And I say that as someone who only learned to iron a few years ago (really!) and who has a tendency to give up when things don't go right the first time. Perhaps that's why I'd avoided this material for so long. It seemed too complicated and tricky.
But it was neither!
Whether your child gets the fidgets, tends to bite their nails or sleeves, or just needs some extra help to calm down when anxiety strikes, all kids can benefit from these stocking stuffers at some point! These ideas are inexpensive, small enough to fit in a stocking, and will make both your AND your child's life a little easier. Not bad for something you get inside an over-sized sock!

This year, on the day of our town's annual holiday parade, our family started a new tradition. We got in the car as a family that morning and headed to a new location in our area, the Philly Pretzel Factory.

I hadn't been planning to post any Thanksgiving activities, and certainly not a thankful tree. There are so many out there already, including our very own jumbo wall version. But this one came to me and, well, once I have an idea, I have to at least give it a shot!
This one is perfect for those last-minute gratitude sessions. (You'll notice I'm publishing this after Thanksgiving. We're all about last-minute these days!) With a few materials you probably already have around the house, this one will be ready for action. Let's get to it...
I just love giveaways, especially around the holidays. Let's save some money by winning prizes!
