Halloween Crafting Ideas

I am an Oriental Trading Ambassador and receive products to facilitate my posts. All opinions are my own. The girls have been begging for an art activity with painting, so Saturday was art day. I have been wanting to make a Halloween wreath for our barn door. We decorate the barn as a (not so scary) Haunted House for the littles each year, but the entry door is always lacking. I thought what better way to keep the girls occupied while I craft than to have their own Halloween projects? I have been planning this activity day for a few weeks, and it was so easy to order all the supplies we … [Read more...]

Adios Irma! & A List of Charities For Donating

At the beginning of the week we were cleaning out Ben's workshop trying to make room to house a number of family and friends fleeing Irma's path. Then suddenly Irma's path changed. Our evacuating guests were no longer evacuating. In fact, we were predicted to have worse weather here in the mountains. I got a phone call on Friday morning from a friend planning to stay with us. His family made it half way up the state and decided to turn around and go home because they didn't want to face the weather here! We spent the weekend … [Read more...]

5 Things That Make the Carry on Backpack Awesome
