Easy Thanksgiving Tree tutorial

In my Happiness post, I talked about 5 ways to be happier.  #5 was to acknowledge your happiness.  One of the easiest ways to find things to be happy about is to follow the old adage- and Count your Blessings.  Recognizing what we already have is a giant leap into happiness.  And keeping them on display in a beautiful way is simply an added bonus. 🙂 I wanted to do a quick activity with my children to create a Thanksgiving…

Every Batty needs a friend

So I thought the Batty Felt Pillow needed a little companion. At first I thought I would follow up on some one’s suggestion to make a white on white ghost pillow, or an orange on orange pumpkin pillow. I fiddled around with the orange felt and decided that I didn’t want to do just another same old felt pillow that mimics exactly the bat one. I thought the pumpkins needed a little something more. I found this orange polka-dot fabric…

In Progress

I have been working on a few projects. None of them seem to be working out exactly like I had planned. The board above has been in process for a couple of months.
