DIY – Cub Scout Patch Banner

I live in a house full of Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts.  My husband is an Eagle Scout, so it was only natural that our boys joined Scouts when they started First Grade. When you are involved in Scouting there are many opportunities for service projects, classes and other events both locally and out of town.  After these events are done, the boys are given patches with the event logo on it.  So you can imagine with three boys and tons of {Read More}

A Pinterest Pin Redone ~ My Great Granny Needlebook ~

WIP Wednesday – State Block Style

DIY Tree Skirt Inspiration

Happy Sunday everyone! We spent most of the day yesterday switching between my oldest son’s science experiment and decorating the house. Every time we move (7 times in 16 years!) it takes a good deal of time to figure out how to decorate the house for the holidays.
