Kids Art: Painted Paper Weaving

Painted Paper Weaving on

Remember doing paper weaving art projects as a kid? They were always so much fun (even for me as someone with *ahem* absolutely no artistic ability). This painted paper weaving project is a fun twist on a classic and you can do it with materials that you probably already have at home. Older kids will love creating something unique. Younger kids can even join the fun by helping choose colors and practicing their fine motor skills. This simple kids art project is perfect for keeping kids busy and the final product looks great in a frame.

How to Turn your Blog into a Business

How to Turn your Blog into a Business on

When I first started blogging it was mainly as a creative outlet. I was a newly stay at home mom with one baby working hard running a home daycare and I didn’t get a lot of adult interaction. This was before texting was mainstream (I know. I’m old) and before Facebook so it was just me and a handful of toddlers. I feel sorry for the door-to-door salesmen that showed up at my door during this time because I probably talked their ear off. It didn’t take long before I realized that blogging could be more than a hobby. Blogging could be a viable business if I worked at it the right way.

Top 5 Things to Do Before Baby Arrives


Time has never moved slower for me than it did during those last few weeks before having a new baby. There’s something about waiting for something to happen that just makes the moments go by so slowly. We’ve been playing the waiting game again . . . not for me. My sister just welcomed her second baby and we have all been anxiously waiting to meet him over these last few weeks.

Those last few weeks of pregnancy may drag on but they are a great time to finish some final prep work done before the baby arrives.

Recipe: Mexican Street Corn

Mexican Street Corn on | This corn recipe is so good you'll never want to eat it any other way!

Fresh corn on the cob is pretty much the perfect food. It doesn’t need a lot of fancying up . . . at least that’s what I thought before I was introduced to Mexican Street Corn. This is corn on the cob with a bit of a kick and it’s so loaded with flavor that perfectly complements the corn. Once you try it you’ll never want to go back to plain old corn on the cob.
