After a brief hiatus I’m excited to be back to writing this blog… actually I’m excited to be back to doing lots of hobbies I haven’t had time for… like crafting and travelling! I’ve got some fun trips planned for 2017 and I can’t wait to share them here through the year. I’ve been working on getting myself organized… I […]

A unique day trip visiting the fossil beds at Falls Of The Ohio State Park in Indiana.
I am in seventh heaven right now. I recently took a trip to Orlando. I flew United Airlines for the first time in quite a while. I was so surprised that they didn’t offer the usual pretzel/ peanut snack, but instead, this yummy waffle cookie thing that tasted like heaven. At first I thought I’d save it to take home to my kids… but really… I was starving. Then, on the return flight, when I got another, I thought it just wouldn’t be fair to go home with one cookie to two kids. So I ate that one too. I was searching through Amazon and what did I find? These yummy waffle cookie/ candy treats that they served on the plane. Oh my… these will be dangerous when they arrive and probably won’t last long in my house. I had to share this for anyone like me, that hasn’t stopped thinking about these since my trip almost a month ago. http://amzn.to/2ay6xzJ I tried to post a photo but you’ll have to go to the link and see for yourself.
We recently took a family vacation to Columbus, OH. We had a quick change of plans due to the recent flooding in West Virginia affecting our original road trip. I was bummed we had to cancel our waterfall road trip so while we were in Columbus, OH- I googled “waterfalls in Ohio” to see what popped up. Much to my […]
My kids have been begging to go to an aquarium for MONTHS…literally. Last month we decided to take a little trip to Chicago. We didn’t want to spend more than a day in Chicago- so we needed to be able to get to Shedd’s early before traffic picked up. To do this, we spent the night in LaPorte, IN at […]
I recently posted my 1st grade Eric Carle art project- Here’s the 4th grade project I put together for another teacher in our school. I got a great deal on canvases at Michaels this year (Under $1 each for the 8×10 which are normally $19.99 for a 10 pack). So.. we used those 8×10 canvases and coated them in a […]
(* some affiliate links included) Our little school in Michigan doesn’t have an art class. Every spring I get funding through the PTA to put on an art program for the entire school. I work with our awesome teachers coming up with ideas or helping them purchase supplies for their own ideas. This year each teacher chose an artist to […]
