Easy Crafting Ideas For Old School Valentines

When I was a child I could not wait to make valentines with my mom every year in early February. We would put all our materials out on the dining room table and spend an entire afternoon with doilies, clip art and rubber cement. I’m calling these valentines old school because there’s nothing digital involved with these fun love notes – just stickers, markers and a little creativity!

Decorate And Organize Your Journal for A New Year

Oh my goodness – is it really January already?! Where did 2017 go?!

Starting off 2018 on the right foot with my notebook, I decided I would do my organizing by decorating my pages using rainbow colors for January. The other months will get new designs later on!
This year I’m using the Flipside Double Sided Notebook as my planner. It’s awesome because one half of the notebook has blank pages and then you can flip it over it has lined paper too. So handy for lists or doodling! And you can tell which side you are on by the cover color.

Make Your Own Halloween DIY Trick or Treat Bags

My favorite holiday is coming up, and I cannot wait!! I absolutely love Halloween because it’s a time of year when you can be as creative as you want.  These midnight DIY trick or treat bags are easy to make and fun to decorate for kids of any age. I call them “midnight” because they require creating art on a black as night background. Or if you’re like me, you might find yourself crafting at the stroke of midnight to finish a project!
