We made some spooky peg dolls last week. I never tire of making these. I helped, but it was pretty much all Lydia. We have been watching some scarey movies to get in the mood—The Addams Family, Something Wicked This...

Every few months I print out covers of the books the girls read so they can glue them in their book journal and take notes and keep track of what they have read. So many of our books come from...

I found this very short video on making a chile mocha and it looked delicious. It's much more photo-styled than my version, but whatever. I had no whipped cream. It was still delicious. I think the spice mix they they...

A bit back I was making paper mache shrines with the girls and had so much fun, I couldn't stop making them. I was debating what to put in mine and realized they would be perfect for displaying jewelry after...

We made bath bombs yesterday and they were a huge success. I made them ages ago, before kids, but never made more. Then when I had babies, bath bombs were a bad thing. We got one as a gift and...

This last week we have been making runes. Not all of us, the older girls are not so interested, but my youngest wild-child is all over it. I made the top two sets from air-dry clay and then painted them...

I always seem to work on these at night, when it's too warm in the kitchen (we don't have AC) and I have the oven on. I just sweat and am constantly putting these little figures in the freezer because...

The summer is moving fast around here. After a very hot May, it's been a very cool July. I'm not complaining. Maybe just a little. It's been too cool to swim most days—that would be my only complaint. I have...
