A few months ago my son had his eighth birthday. One of the gifts, from my sister who is working close to Zion National Park, was an excavation kit. I had never seen one before, and when we opened the box we saw some small tools and a brick of sandy plaster. My eight-year-old went to town and stayed consumed with the excavation kit for four...

  Oh say can you see by the dawn's early light,What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,Gave proof through the night that our flag was still...

I love big statements in decoration and design, and DIY marquee letters give you a lot of punch for little money. There are two ways to make a marquee; buy an oversized paper mache letter at your local craft store or cut a letter out of wood. There are pros and cons to both materials, although the method is the same for both. Paper...

A few weeks ago I went to a friend's house and got a tour of her lovely backyard. Nestled in the gorgeous flowerbed was a tiny house with a stone path and a small arbor, a few little toadstools and a teeny tiny bouquet of flowers. I asked my friend and she told me it was her granddaughter's fairy garden, a fun little something they do together. I...

Somewhere along the way we grow up. Fort building and tree climbing are replaced with jobs and responsibilities.  We loose interest in play and using our imagination.

My good friend, Jessica, is the queen of the outdoors. She is a high adventure enthusiast, blogger, mom of 3, crafter, still finds time to garden, and is a great cook! AND, her kids are always active! So I had to ask her. How did she accomplish all those things, and yet still maintain her sanity?! Especially since we all know simply taking care...

In preparing for a 10 hour drive to the Oregon coast, with three kids, I recalled how my friend Christine recently made a 13 hour drive from Boise, ID to Los Angeles, CA in 13 hours and 27 minutes!  I had to know her secrets.  She imparted all her road trip wisdom to me, and in turn, I'm sharing it here.  I also quizzed our awesome Facebook...
