Family fun day paper crafts-milk carton barn.

“Every time you sit down to eat…thank a farmer.” Hey everyone. Only two more paper crafts for the summer are left. I can’t believe how fast the summer is going. This craft is a little more complicated but you can simplify it by not adding little barn doors or a hay loft window. Supplies needed-…

May Updates and Favorite blogger posts.

“ You were given this life because you were strong enough to live it” Unknown Oh May!…what a month this was. I understand why the term Mayday represents a international distress call. Wow, did I open up with you all this month or what? I posted a couple difficult blogs that were very personal to…
