My daughter will be turning 7 in 25 days! Wow! There is no way she can be 7 already, but the calendar does not lie. Starting around my birthday which was at the end of April, my daughter asked me everyday, “How many days until my birthday?” Everyday I would quickly do the math in my […]
It was just a matter of time before we got invited to a Frozen themed birthday party. Ironically my 3 year old son was the first and not my six year old daughter, but I am pretty sure he knows the words to all the songs anyways because that is all we listened to in […]
Lately I am all about easy entertaining. I love having people over and I am totally the person who wants to hand make the invitations and create unique labels for all the food. Crafting is my passion. It’s my time to tune out the rest of the world and my time to just enjoy creating. […]
One of many goals during my daughter’s spring break was to plant a garden with her. When we bought our house in December we had to replace pretty much everything in the backyard. We had this nice plant bed with nothing in it so we decided to turn it into ‘Emily’s Garden.”

One of my (many) goals in life is to volunteer more. I often think to myself, “Yea, right, like I have any spare time to volunteer.” But, just like anything else, it’s all about balance. I feel like I do a great job of balancing kids, work, crafts, working out and time with the hubby….so […]
Dear Classy Crafter,
My much younger cousin called me and asked if she could stay at my house for one night while she makes her way down to the Florida Keys. With 2 kids we currently don’t have a guest room for her to stay in. Am I expected to give up my bed for […]
Dear Classy Crafter,
