Authentic or Faux — My Forsythia Struts Its Stuff

Igot so excited when I rounded the house this weekend to find my forsythia bush blooming! I immediately cut several stems to take the place of the faux flowers I wrote about only days before on my post “Five Tips for Displaying Faux Flowers.”

This cheery card is a perfect way to brighten someone's day. . . complete with a little shaker surprise!

Country Cuteness from Mom’s Garage

I took an old canning jar, a partial can of off-white spray paint, twine and twigs and quickly whipped up a cute little country-style home decor.

    The Making of the Lost Mummy

    My son requested an escape room party for his 10th birthday, so I quickly agreed knowing that our city is full of these fun little amusements; unfortunately, I couldn't locate a room that seemed age appropriate so I went from what would have been an easy outing to a full-commitment, decked out ancient Egyptian Lost Mummy tomb in our home office.

    Creating a Birthday Balloon Bonanza

    My baby boy turned double digits last week, so his dad and I created a balloon bonanza to celebrate his special day. Armed with a small helium tank and my husband's lungs we created a whole hallway full of festiveness to great our little man on his birthday.

    Saturday Sparks — Creative Ways to Say Thanks

    If you are like me and so many other Americans in this country, you will be spending a bit of time surrounded by lots of family (for better or worse) in the very near future. Since Thanksgiving is not adorned with loads of decorations and gift giving, I always think it is nice to somehow bring a touch of specialness to the occasion (as if all that yummy food wasn’t special enough). So today’s Spark is all about ways to help you, your family and your friends show their gratitude in some fun and creative ways. Happy Thanksgiving!
