Date Night Gift Card Box | 12 pre-planned date ideas for two - #michaelsmakers Coming up with unique gift ideas for that special someone that 'has it all' can be difficult.

Chalkboard Wooden Postcards | Kids’ Valentines

Happy Friday my friends. I am not quite sure where January has gone but Welcome February nonetheless. I am pretty excited my little guy and I managed to finish up one of our planned Valentine's Day projects this week. Despite our slow moving speed, these wooden postcards are incredibly easy to make and can be ready-to-play in just a day - and that's only because it takes that long for the chalkboard paint to cure. I just love that they are made from wood - which I know will ensure they will be around for quite awhile - no matter how Continue reading

I still consider them 'living' until they are completely brittle and falling apart.  If the temperatures stay the way they have been I am thinking I may possibly be ok... I used some of the large cookie cutters left over from the cookie cutter bird feeders CJ and I made the other day. I bought Continue reading
