Imagine these cute little farm animal yo-yos cavorting across the front of your fridge! Your child can make a whole basket of them in one evening to give away to their friends, family or even give them to their teachers as a cute little handmade gift. These farm animal yo-yo crafts would be a great end of the school year craft for the class, a craft for Bible school or a boredom buster for the kiddos while on summer vacation.
Have you seen all the rage that’s going around with the reverse canvas? I’m going to show you how to make a reverse canvas farmhouse sign using an upcycled canvas print. This is sort of a play on the farmhouse wood signs that have been around for many years. I make both the wood signs and canvas signs. The canvas signs are way easier to make.
How to Make a Pom Pom out of Yarn

My two sons have two very different attitudes about Valentines Day. My oldest son, Jacob, has always been interested in girls. Seriously. He came home from the first day of Pre-K 4 and said he had a girlfriend. He has been girl crazy ever since. My youngest son, Jackson, on the other hand, is 11 and thinks girls still have cooties (YIPPEE!)
Jacob buys his own Valentines Day cards and gifts these days. So I have to come up with Valentine’s Day cards that Jackson will like. He says, “They have to be normal”. Jackson hasn’t liked any of the Valentines in the stores. So we headed to Pinterest for some ideas. I think these are normal and pretty clever for any boy or girl that likes Legos. Follow this tutorial if you are looking for Lego Valentines with free printables.

This box marks 18 months since I first signed up for the Stitch Fix subscription clothing service. I still love it as much today as when I received my first box. So much so, that I receive a box every two weeks instead of once a month. If you would like to learn more about how to get started with Stitch Fix, you can go here. I asked my stylist to curate a bottoms only box for this Fix. I requested cargo pants, skinny jeans, and cargo shorts. On with this Stitch Fix review bottoms only.
