Creative Project Ideas: Re-Purposing Kids’ Art

Art Project Ideas for Kids
Any day now my son is going to come home from school carrying the contents of his locker in his backpack, which will get dumped on our front porch table (or floor), where it shall remain for at least a month. Buried in the pile will be several pieces of artwork created in art class, including a few pieces of broken pottery that weren’t meant to be crammed into a backpack.

Spring Cleaning Fun!

No longer will we be hibernating inside — it’s time for the backyard BBQ’s to start with neighbors and friends, for yard games to come out of the garage and it’s definitely time to get the family out for walks and bike rides again!

Spring Cleaning Checklist

Spring Cleaning Checklist #stationery #spring #peartreegreetings
It’s spring. Finally! This has been the longest winter ever. (I say that every year, but this year it actually feels true.)  I don’t know why they call it spring cleaning, because for me the symptoms start about mid-January. I go stir-crazy and start to attack all the little things that are bugging me around the house. I fix the dining room chair that’s been broken for 4 years. I start patching nicks and dings in the walls and end up repainting three rooms. About a week ago, my husband had to stop me from demolishing a wall to expand my laundry room.
