It's Me-Covery Time!

I love that term. But I can take no credit for it. Me-Covery is actually marketing-speak. It’s a term coined by well-known marketing firm, Saatchi & Saatchi, to describe how consumers are now looking for ways to take care of themselves (a recovery of self), especially following the financial and emotional hardships caused by our Great Recession.

Indeed, as overworked, overburdened, overstressed women, doesn’t a little ME-covery sound perfect just about……

What Type Of Thinker Are You, Learning About The Mind From Temple Grandin

The mind of Temple Grandin is fascinating because it works very differently from most of ours.  She is a visual thinker, thinking in pictures.  Recently there was an HBO movie about her life, starring Claire Danes, that won many awards.  The movie beautifully illustrates how her mind works.  

Why does this matter? What can we learn from Temple…

Fingerpaint Flowering Trees

I had big plans to make the decorations for Em's Easter birthday party.  They were all crafts that came from toilet paper or paper towel rolls, and  I thought they would be an easy touch to her party, something homemade by her brother and me.  But as the date approached and I had more and more things on my plate, the crafts were pushed to the wayside.  It was all well and good because her party was beautiful just the way it was, with…

A Crafty Conclusion

This is a story of a happy little craft that was relatively painless to make and resulted in a very pretty flower arrangement that perhaps will adorn our table at Easter.  But in order to fully understand how these flowers rose from the ashes of crafty destruction, you'll have to go back one post (or click here) and read about their humble beginnings.  Plus, you won't know how to make the egg-shaped…

A Crafty Train Wreck

Note:  Feel free to use this tutorial as a lesson on how not-to-craft.  This is the anti-craft.

 

As my kids have grown older I have found an inner craftician that I never knew I had.  This should give all of you with craft anxiety hope because I am truly as creative as a wet sock.  I have now spent more time (and money) in craft stores in 2011 than I had spent in the past 30 years of my life…

Sick and Bored, What To Do?

It's frustrating being sick. If you can't sleep but have to rest what do you do?  For the first few hours it may be fun but after that it is just boring.  How do we keep the mind busy while the body rests?  

For a lucky few this isn't a problem.  They are able to sleep and heal.  Sleep is a struggle for many of the rest of us though and those hours in bed or on the couch get very long.

Whether you are a child or an adult there are lots of options though.  Some you may not be…

Is it in the air?

Seems like everywhere I went today I heard someone comment on how tired they felt. I thought is was funny in an interesting way since I have been feeling the exact same way lately. No matter how well I sleep and how much rest i get, lately I have been feeling sluggish. Hmm, can it be something in the air, perhaps many of us have not adjusted to the time difference or just plain ole vitamin deficiency.

Pondering thought:)

A Simple Spring Celebration

Yesterday was the first day of spring!  Hooray!  Are you ready to celebrate spring with your children?  I know I am, even though it is snowing as we speak (another 4" or so...oh, bother).  But snowstorm or no, it is officially spring and that deserves a celebration!  And what better why to celebrate than with a craft?  Well, a party would be fun, too, but we're fresh out of cupcakes.  This craft took about 15 minutes and it only required materials I'm sure you…
