dollar store crafts
Over the weekend, my daughter and I camped, ate s’mores and went on some adventures… one of them was the dollar store.
I never have enough cake stands…so I made a couple. It’s pretty self explanatory:
At the dollar store, get yourself two candle sticks, then go [...]
So… I haven’t been documenting everyday, because honestly, I think it will get narcissistic and boring. So, I will be sharing highlights today… all via iPhone pics. Fun, huh?
We took the boat out & met up with friends at Lake Boca… and there was a nice patriotic service at church.
We went on [...]
Ahhh… nothing like a surprise boat adventure.
Thanks to me copping a little attitude. Sometimes, a little attitude fixes everything. When my hubby called to say he was going to ride on his buddy’s boat to make sure it “sounded okay” , I said “Awww… I was looking forward to hanging out with you this [...]
Summer day twelve:
We had a total rain day on Wednesday.. and I forgot what was on my summer-do-list for rainy days, so we drew pictures, made garlic knots and spaghetti pie. Oh yeah, we also got robbed of twenty bucks and an hour and ten minutes. Grrr. It turns out, I went to the [...]
My daughter was soooo excited to see her friend from preschool that she drew this:
I’m crazy about the slide.
I love four year old art. All kids artwork is awesome, but I’ve always been more partial to the little ones. Before they get too literal & after they move beyond scribbles.

I decided to combine summer days 8 & 9, mainly since it fell on a weekend & also due to the fact it was Father’s day weekend… At first, we contemplated going camping, but the 4 1/2 hour drive to our favorite camp site deterred us- we ended up doing the next best thing: pretended [...]
Ahhh, summer day seven involved a trip to IKEA with my out-of-town friend and her son. It was their first IKEA visit, and a “mini-road-trip” for the four of us, (since it’s an hour away from my house). We planned to get there early to avoid the crowds & get a hot cinnamon bun… but [...]
Summer day six… was a “no plan” day. Which, meant we could stay in jammies until it was time to go wherever we needed to go. We stayed in them for quite a while, and organized drawers… then we realized we needed to do some things for Father’s day. Fortunately, I had a leftover gift [...]
Living in Florida, I’m blessed to have a water “splash ground” that’s a ten minute walk from my home. It was the perfect (and free!) thing to do with a two and four year old. Of course, I had a little fathers day craft for them to do beforehand. Because, sometimes, I’m [...]
Summer day four!
I had an old friend come into town… we’ve been friends for… jeez… um… maybe 15 years? I’ll have to ask her. Anyway, she used to be my pottery class partner, co-worker, traveling buddy and thrift shopping and flea marketing partner. We had a falling when I first met my [...]
