Easy Valentine no-paint canvases

Valentine Canvas Art

Getting ready for the holidays can be a lot of fun. We do a fair amount of entertaining, so I like to keep my decorations updated and fresh. With our impeding move, I need to keep things simple. Working with canvas is always my go-to DIY craft staple. The great thing about canvas, you can use them painted, or not painted. With no-paint canvas art, you can create just about anything. continued

Curious: A better way to learn anything. Plus, $25 to get started!

Curious event at Sunset Magazine

Just before the holidays I had the opportunity to visit Sunset Magazine and take part in a fun evening of crafting with my fellow blogging friends. The evening was hosted by Curious, a local Bay Area company I’ve been interested in for a while. continued

DIY Planes Gift Wrap and Travel Bags

I might have been the last one to see Planes, Fire and Rescue. My husband took our oldest daughter to see it in the theater when the movie first came out. I’ve been waiting not so patiently for it to get released in the iTunes Store. Recently we all piled onto the couch and watched it together as a family, and loved it. continued

Kiwi Crate: Hours of fun!

Kiwi Crate Collage

When the Kiwi Crate arrived on our doorstep I was so excited to share it with my girls.  My nine year old loves to gather items around the house and make new things out of them.  You should see her latest creation with some straws, a few balloons, some string and a paper doll.  She has a very creative mind and when I heard about Kiwi Crate I knew this would be perfect for her. continued

Mickey Mouse Halloween crafts

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. For the last few years, we’ve been going to Disneyland during the Halloween festivities. Last year, we attended Mickey’s Halloween Party for the first time. We typically go sometime in October. It’s the perfect way to kick off the holiday season. continued

Ice cream sandwiches, Mickey style

Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich

Oh how I love Summer! Living in San Francisco, we get about three weeks of actual Summer weather. One thing I miss about a traditional Summer is ice cream. I only like to eat it if it’s warm outside. I’ve been waiting for warmer weather to make ice cream sandwiches. Today it’s finally going to happen. I have several pinned over at Pinterest that I’ve been waiting to try, and thought I’d put my own Disney spin on it for our girls. continued

Using chalkboard paint on canvas to create a small sign

hello final

This weekend I took Emma “yardsaling” with me. I was looking for used candle votives for a project and thought this was the perfect place to start looking for great deals on “used” candle holders. We went to several yard sales, she held her two-dollars close, and she scored a gently used dollhouse. The man sold it to her for a quarter. She was beyond thrilled. continued
