Simple project – Turn old shirts into wall art!

I’m all for donating old clothes, but sometimes the sentimental items are tough to let go of. Especially since a lot of my baby and toddler clothes have been used by both of my girls! I have memories of my girls crawling around in certain t-shirts or precious pictures with it on. What to do? Store…

Journey Off the Map – VBS or summer party ideas

On a whim, I shared a blog post last summer of our church’s Vacation Bible School. It was “Agency 3d” theme and I thought some of the decorations would be cool for a “spy” type of birthday party or maybe even give ideas to another church that might be using the same theme. Since then,…

The theme – “Agency 3d – Discover, Decide, Defend.” You might…

If my 4 year old had an Instagram account (on the farm)

We just got back from a relaxing weekend at “the farm” AKA – Gigi & Pawpaw’s house. My mom lets my girls do just about anything they want. They had pop tarts for dinner, potted plants using kitchen spoons and stayed up way. too. late. So, after showing Daisy how to build mud pies using…
