It’s spring around here so that means put away the winter coats, hopefully for good, and get out the spring coats. Both of my boys have grown this past winter, I needed to go through the D-Man’s old coats for Big-C to wear. I dug up this cute fleece coat and remembered that right around the time D-Man outgrew it the zipper got caught in a door jam. It came apart and I was unable to repair it. That was 2 years ago, now I know how to fix that broken slider. Continue reading “How to Fix a Zipper Without Sewing”
It’s spring and we’ve been doing some Spring cleaning including the garage. I wanted some containers that would fit on our shelves and hold the objects that tend to clutter up spaces. The cat litter pails worked awesome! They were very simple to prep and label. Now our balls, sand toys and play tools have a place. I think I may be adding some to our collection…..there’s chalk, bubble toys and maybe even my gardening tools.

Happy Make It Monday everyone! I made my own makeup remover and cleansing pads this weekend. I came around to this little craft by happenstance. Do you ever forget that you tossed your flannel pajamas in the dryer again! Now the pajamas are all shrunk unevenly and uncomfortable to wear because of the shrinkage. I was trying to think of what to do with them. The flannel still felt awesome but the material didn’t fit right.
We have the most charming piano. I learned how to play on it when I was young and possibly someday at least one of my children will also learn how to play on the piano. Currently they enjoy using it to bang on the keys. Also to me and my mother’s dismay they enjoy driving their cars, dancing their figures, and landing their airplanes across the piano bench. We’ve tried to throw a nice colorful mat over it, but it slips right off. Occasionally with a small boy along for the ride!
