Craftiness: Painted Frames for Photos and Art

Crafty Supplies

Like everyone with young kids (especially if they're in daycare), we get a lot of artwork home from the boys. And I want to display it, at least for a little while.

I loved the Easter Egg Tree. Mom would let … [Read more...]

Pin Me!

Hi, my name is Sherry, and I'm addicted to Pinterest. I use the website for fun stuff, but also to keep me organized.
