  • Blessing Tree

    Happy Thanksgiving, every one! I am sure that by now you are all full of turkey and mashed potatoes (and perhaps laying on a couch watching football or a Christmas movie.) Wherever you are, or whatever you did, I hope that you had a beautiful day counting your blessings and eating yummy dinner with your family and friends. (I am not gonna lie… it maybe time to go pull the pumpkin pie back out and nibble.)

  • Bulletin Board Love

    It’s a cold November day here in Colorado. In fact, as I am writing you…. there is a blizzard happening.

    I love snow! It makes me so cozy and for some reason makes me want to create and write more than the average day (same with thunder storms). So, while I’m wrapped up in my yellow blanket and sipping on hot chai tea, I thought I would post a simple project for you to do with your kids (or on your own) to bless others this Thanksgiving season.  :)

  • The Kids Table

    I am not sure who was the original brain behind the concept of “the kids table” at Thanksgiving…. but they should have another holiday purely to honor their brilliant idea. Maybe it was just because there simply isn’t enough room at most tables to fit the kids well— but I would like to think that something as great as the kids table was an intentional concept.

    The kids table was the always the place to be on Thanksgiving. That’s were siblings and cousins unite to discuss the important things in life. You know, like what you were asking Santa for, your tactic for stealing extra dessert while the adult were cleaning up, or how you were going to convince your parents to let your cousins have a Thanksgiving sleeep-over. I remember one year my older cousin, Tommy, graduated to the grown ups table and even though I knew I loved the kids table, I whined until my mother made a makeshift spot for me between my dad and grandma. The grass was not greener on the other side.

  • Harvest Dough

    Play dough! I absolutely love it. Autumn! I also absolutley love it. When you combine the two, the product is so good it makes my heart what to explode. This year Sprinkles and I decided to combine some season spices and such to create some wonderful smelling play doughs! Here are some of our favorite fall play doughs (aka “Harvest Doughs”). They smell amazing and one of them even sparkles! Your kids are sure to have fun playing with their special Harvest Doughs… and you will have time to clean up all of the Thanksgiving dinner dishes. Everyone wins.
