Sensory fun!

On winter days when it's too cold to get outside I give the boys a sensory box to play with. Yesterday we had crazy cold winds, so I put together a construction sensory box for them.  I mixed decorative gravel with some old instant coffee I found in the cupboard. The result is the perfect construction site!

Don't be afraid of the mess!!  A little tip - I do the messy sensory activities on vacuum day.  That way  I am really motivated to get my vacuuming done ; ) 

Other things  I use often for sensory activities are rice, water, cotton balls, and beans/lentils.

Earring Holder

Happy New Year! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

This was my first project of 2012. I have been wanting to make this since I saw this idea on Pinterest months ago, but was waiting to find the perfect frame. This frame was above my stove ...until it fell and the glass broke all over the kitchen tile. Happy accident! It was perfect for my earring holder.

This was a quick project...I used my trusty glue gun to attach the strips of lace to the frame. I love it! I find that I wear my jewelry so much more if I can see it.

I am working on a couple tutorials...hope to have the first up this week!
