DIY Valentine’s Day Lei Wreath #orientaltrading #kidfriendly #kidcrafts

As an Oriental Trading Ambassador, I am provided with products to facilitate some of my crafting posts. I do not earn affiliate commissions through any of the links in this post. A quick snowstorm dropped about an inch of snow on us last night, and I spent the evening hours rearranging our lesson plans for today to accommodate the snow. I couldn't expect the girls to sit down calmly at their desks working on worksheets all morning with the elusive white stuff outside calling their names!

Sorry Not Sorry & JennShuey Designs

Hello blog. I'm so sorry to have neglected you, but 2017 got off to a really busy start. I am a blogger, but blogging isn't my business. Blogging is my hobby. Sometimes it's fun, sometimes I want to walk away for a little while, but in the end, I find my way back to the blog. There's just something about putting words down that is a calming release no matter what the subject matter may be, but it doesn't pay the bills. Last year I started a small personalized home decor and vinyl business. I didn't sit down one night and decide I wanted to jump into the vinyl design world. It just sort … [Read more...]
