Tutorial for Plastic Bag Flowers. Tali from Growing up Creative shared an easy tutorial on how to make flowers out of your average plastic bag. I think it would look stunning hung from trees for a garden party, or a special girl’s fairy party. Cost: FREE!
10 tips For Coping with a Larger Family. Nicole from Planning with Kids had this to say about this post, “Although the tips..could easily apply to a family of any size, the difference being for us is how critical they are to smooth daily running of family life.” I was nodding my way all through the post, all the things she mentions we do in our house, and it makes SUCH a difference! Check her website out, it’s great!
I love this quote! Alicia from A Magical Childhood always finds the BEST quotes (and the best web finds! The plastic flowers was from her blog too!) Look at this quote that she shared recently:
“Discipline isn’t just about winning or losing.
Every power struggle offers you the opportunity
to connect with your child or disconnect.
The relationship you will have with your child
when he’s an adolescent
lies in the words and actions you use today.
Ultimately your real power is in that emotional bond.”

Yummy recipes! Caitlyn from Knitter in the Kitchen has a great blog where she shares mouth watering recipes along with her knitting/craft projects.
Creative You. Simone from Great Fun 4 Kids shares a wonderful post that talks about how we often have a limited view about what Creativity is. She says,
“We are all artists, girls. Our canvases are our children, our homes, our gardens, our relationships, our lives.
We express our creativity through the obvious: art, craft, music, cooking, decorating, style…
…and the less obvious: celebrating, encouraging, enjoying, giving, nurturing and appreciating the beauty we see around us.”
She goes on to talk about how we might have to find out where our creativity lies. So ladies!! It’s not that we aren’t creative….we just need to do a bit of experimenting. (I am soo on that journey, and loving it! I have tried more things in these past 2 years than the previous 8 years put together!)
