StraightGrain: Bubble Skirt Tutorial

by Meghan Rowe on November 22, 2016, no comments

Another make from around a year ago. I absolutely loved this bubble skirt tutorial from An at StraightGrain. This no longer fits my daughter, and she was devastated when it went into the hand-me-down box. She wore it over and over and over.

My daughter just finished her last day of Pre-School – ever! My husband and I can hardly believe that we have a kindergartener in the house! For the teacher gift this year I made a set of cards (happy birthday and thank-you), and included a coffee card. Cristina at My Paper Secret made this card […]

For My Little Valentines

Usually I leave the kid’s valentines until the night before, but this year I’m ahead of the game! My daughter will get the pink shaker card with the book: Miss Bindergarten goes to Kindergarten, written by Joseph Slate. My son will get the multicoloured shaker card and – at personal request from his dad – […]

Easy Pre-School Valentines

These valentines are super fast to make, and it’s a great project to involve your little one in too. My daughter and I made these for her Pre-School Valentine’s Day party. I cut 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock into 4.25″ x 3″ rectangles and rounded the corners. Next I took a sharpie and drew a loose […]

CAS(E) This Sketch is such a great challenge to play along with! Here is my take on challenge #63: These shaker cards are so much fun, I love all of the different ways I’ve seen them used. Here I used vellum for the window, but there will definitely be some acetate paper coming on my […]

Homemade English Muffins

Are they time consuming? Absolutely! Are they worth it? Definitely!  Wait – are they cooked on the stove? Why yes, yes they are (I checked three other recipes posted online just to be sure). I had no idea homemade english muffins could taste this good! english muffins (more with less) heat in a sauce pan […]

On this last day of December I am squeezing in one more Christmas card. Here is the card that I sent out to our family and friends, inspired by the ‘I love you’ card in this post at My Paper Secret. It wasn’t too much work to mass produce, and to save my hands from […]
