I love the look of burlap. It's such an easy way to add a rustic look to any craft. Like, oh, this turkey, for instance.
Here in the U.S. we're prepping for Thanksgiving. I love our Thanksgivings - we stay home, just the family, no visitors, no visiting. It's quiet and actually relaxing!
This week's linky will stay open for 2 weeks. Feel free to drop in again next week with new links. We'll be visiting them all, like always!
Don't you just love fall? The colors, the crisp air, the raking...okay, I don't love everything about it!
This colorful wreath was made with...wait for it...packaging paper. Yep, this baby is upcycled!
Well, this is one craft that turned out completely different than I expected! (But in a good way!)
I got out the materials thinking we would make some ornaments with our first initial on them. Somehow we ended up with...reindeer! I love when the unexpected turns out so adorable!

There is that time, when a child is sick, between when they're feeling horrible and actually want to just lay around and being completely well again. It's that in-between time where their body still needs to rest and fight off whatever infection they have, but they're raring to get going again. And entertaining the child who it just itching to get up and run around is tricky. The key - distraction!
One of my favorite things about hosting The Thoughtful Spot is the great giveaways I get to share with you! This time we want to give you a LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum!
Some people are, well, less-than-thrilled with homemade gifts from children. Not everyone can appreciate a macaroni necklace made with love or a heartfelt work of art that may look like just scribbles to the naked eye.
Then there's gifts like this tie-dye bag, which is one of those gifts that will actually get used. In public! Even that picky teen on your gift list will like this one. (Well, maybe...there's no promises with teens!)
We're having some crazy weather here these days. 70 degrees. In November. In New England! It sure makes raking the leaves more pleasant, though!

Congrats to Tina's Dynamic Homeschool's 75 Awesome Things to Add to a Lapbook, the most-clicked last week. Here were some of my other faves:
Each year, our Christmas tree is a hodgepodge of ornaments, each one with a memory attached. One of my favorite traditions we've started with Kay is making our own ornaments each year.
This is actually one we did a couple of years ago. It seemed like the perfect craft for her - you get to use glitter and LOTS of glue!
