Zucchini Taco Rolls

Summertime and the living’s easy. I’ve been cooking and baking up a storm lately! Figuring out how to sneak a few more veggies into my kids diet has been an ongoing adventure around these parts. Luckily, if you add cheese to almost anything my kids are in! I picked up a bunch of zucchini the […]

Faux Suede Earrings made with Cricut

So summer is finally here and thank goodness!  I’ve been feeling in a crafting funk for the past couple of months, wanting to make all the things, but too overwhelmed with school to do anything about it.  School ended a couple of  weeks ago though, and I’ve been a busy girl since then!  I’ve been […]

Crown Molding Framed Instagram Display

I spent spring break trying to spruce up the second floor of our home. I don’t spend a lot of time up there, it’s the kids bedrooms, bathroom, and playroom. I go up each night at bedtime, and sporadically during the day to break up fights or encourage a cleaning party, but hang out, not […]

How to Make a Wicker Basket Light

So about a year ago I had this crazy idea to replace the sad, broken lamp in my living room with something a little more my style. Something a little more boho, a little more funky, a little more me. I looked and looked and looked online and while I found some ridiculously awesome ones […]

Wonderland Party Favors

My littlest daughter turned five last fall, which if you follow along with my crafty adventures you might have already known.  I shared these amazing Wonderland inspired invitations a couple weeks ago and today I am going to show you how I made the party favors for her party.  Lucky for me, I was able to […]

Wonderland Party Sign with Cricut Draw and Cut

About 5 months ago my littlest turned 5 and we threw her the most wonderful Alice in Wonderland tea party.  I made tons of fun crafts, created some of my favorite invitations of all time, and even had themed food to go with it! I had high hopes of sharing it all with you right […]

Teaching Art Through Graffiti

I work with middle school kids and sometimes it is hard to generate a lot of excitement about art, however our study of graffiti was not that way! We started the week with a short video about the history of graffiti and followed it with a really amazing conversation on the difference between art and […]

Uncovering Old Floors for a Living Room Update

Last weekend was a whirlwind of activity for me!  I loudly declared at dinner on Friday night that I would be removing the carpet from the living room the next day. Like it was a fact. As though there was no question to my statement. Mind you, my husband and I have been talking about […]

Exploring Bremerton, WA: Naval Adventure Day

It’s no secret I love the Pacific Northwest. One look at my Instagram feed and you’ll see it’s peppered with shots from our region. I want to share and nurture that same love with my children so we take a lot of “adventure days” on the weekends. The last one we took was up to Bremerton, […]

Middle School Art Classroom

Last winter, on a whim, I applied for a middle school social studies teaching job thinking I had no chance of getting an interview, let alone being hired. Fast forward a couple of months and not only had I interviewed for the job, but I’d been hired! I was ecstatic! I was going from an […]

Life, interrupted. The beginning.

We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Programming to Bring You: LIFE • interrupted When I first began writing this site back at the very bitter end of 2013 I was a stay at home mom of three.  I had never in my adult life been unemployed and I had never spent my days, nights and weekends […]

Cubist Cardboard Faces

Once we were all done learning the elements of art it was time to learn a little bit about the different art movements through history. Because Picasso and Cubism are so crazy I think they are a great place to start. I like to vary our projects between easy and challenging so that no one […]
