Bubbles loves pretty much any kind of craft project you put in front of her.  It doesn’t matter if it’s painting, gluing, using stickers or pompoms or stampers – she’s in.

Not too long ago the folks at Fibre Craft offered to send us some of their new Creative Hands craft totes to review.  They’re recommended for ages 6+ but once I took a look at the kits I decided that Bubbles would be able to complete most of them on her own, and some with a little help.

Fibre Craft Creative Hands Crafting Kits - Zoo 2 Do

We received the Zoo 2 Do, Creative Fun Tote, and Paper Pals Bugs & Flowers kits.  They were in the house for about five minutes before she couldn’t wait any longer and asked if we could give the Zoo 2 Do a try.  So we cleared off her table for a nice, flat crafting surface and sorted the contents.

We are so thankful that the weather is progressively getting better and better.  We move from snow in March (let’s not think about any more of that) to a very, very, very rainy April.  But that old adage is true – April showers have brought May flowers, and with them the opportunity for a lot more outside fun.

It’s been in the 80s for the last few days and according to the forecast that’s going to hold for the rest of the week, too.  Some days are even supposed to peek into the 90s.  But because this is Louisville, I know that we could wake up tomorrow and it’s 20 degrees out, so I wanted us to get out and have some fun in case the weatherman was wrong.

Have you ever reached for a drink just to wonder, “Is this mine?”  It’s easy to happen, especially in the hustle and bustle of a game day party.  They make those little charms for wine glasses so I thought I’d make my own version for bottles.

Gifts for the kitchen are some of my favorite gifts to receive.  Whether it’s appliances, gizmos, gadgets, new foods, cookbooks – it doesn’t matter.  If it’s related to cooking, I’m excited.

Here are a few of my favorite foodie gifts.

Stainless Steel Trivet Scale

Foodie Gifts: Brushed Stainless Steel Trivet Scale from Salter

I love kitchen scales but sometimes have a challenge with finding the space to store them.  You don’t have to worry about that, though, with this Brushed Stainless Steel Trivet Scale from Salter.  Not only does it only take up a tiny bit of space but it can also be used as a serving trivet for your table.  The front scale display slides into the base keeping it clean, protected, and out-of-the-way.

A few months ago my Gram passed away.  I haven’t really mentioned it much – if at all – but those who are regular readers probably noticed that there were a few long stretches of little to no posting.

Christmas was always a huge holiday at my grandparents’ house, and I can vividly remember just how she had it decorated every year.  After she passed, a few of those pieces came to me.  I don’t have quite the same setup she did and so I’ve been trying to figure out where to display them.
