Kitchen Angel

There really couldn’t be a more fitting time than now to post this craft idea. We’ve all seen them and maybe even bought them at church bazaars – the Kitchen Angel. This was our September craft night, which was hosted by Linda B., but it wasn’t until today that I thought to post it. Today,…

Give Thanks Porch Pillow

I love to dress up my front porch for all of the seasons and holidays. Nothing too over the top (except for Halloween), but enough to let my neighbors know I care and “game on.” I’m kidding, of course, but I have been complimented on the looks of the porch, which makes me feel good. I…

Snowmen & Clay Pot Pumpkins

Crafting with children can be so much fun. When my son was in the children’s choir at our Methodist church, their rehearsals were once a week. The kids would come to the church right from school, and we’d have parents there to help with homework assignments, some provided snacks, and I was in charge of…

(Happy to say the worst didn’t happen.) But, as we prepared,…

Fall Floral Arrangement

It’s time for one or two more fall crafting ideas. This one is a floral arrangement. I know a lot of people don’t do this anymore, but I visit the cemetery where my parents are buried quite often, changing out the flower arrangement at least every other month. So, I’m making this one specifically for…
