Where to get a wooden needle to make a rag rug

2017Kim BrushComment

Having the right tools makes a task so much easier! Like having a sharp needle before you start sewing!  Or the right color paper for a scrapbook page! Who wants to stop crafting to go get more supplies because you ran out? Not me. Recently I needed to replace one of my treasured tools, my wooden rug making needle. Thankfully I found a source "close to home" for getting a new one!

You know that stash of craft supplies that you never use?  Maybe you bought them when the ideas were flying and you really mean to get to it but never had the time?  Yeah me too!  I had a little time to do some crafting so I knew that I wanted to use some of my sad neglected supplies out my stash to make these sparkly spring bunny signs! 

I had the paint, canvas and glitter just waiting for a project!  I bet that you do to!

This school year homeschooling has looked DRASTICALLY different for our family. I am only teaching one child now and he's in HIGH SCHOOL. That means I only have 3 years left!!! 3 years to make our homeschool fun and full of learning for our youngest child!

This is so strange to consider after having four children in our homeschool for so many years. My oldest was in Kindergarten 20 years ago!!! And now two of our older children are in college and one has graduated from college, is married and gainfully employed. The years fly by!

The search for easy quick HEALTHY lunches and meals is ongoing around here.  I'm still working on our families healthy eating reboot. One of my challenges is actually planning to cook for our lunches. Sandwiches are my son’s standard daily lunch but I want him to be able to make other recipes. So I'm on the war path.  He learned to make Low Carb Freezer Chimichangas and those served us well in November and December. We just did another batch to restock. Now it is time for a new recipe(to him) Chicken Quesadillas are easy and quick to fix. Plus he loves them.
