a new blog discovery of ours...Make and Takes!
With easy crafts and ideas to spark your creativity, Make and Takes has a great knack for keeping crafts in the "I could make that!" category...not too hard but just challenging enough to be fun.
The author Marie shares so much more than crafty goodness though...her recipes & foodie ideas always look delicious and her family time ideas will inspire fun for the whole gang.
The first link for today is a craft idea we know you'll enjoy...it's Marie's Journal in a Jar!
Filled with ideas to get you started, it's a great way to tell your story! Even better, you can make it as a gift and customize the contents for anyone...get your tween daughter "talking" through a journal or ask Mom to write down her memories for you.
With tips on decorating (love those spiral flowers!), this post includes some great starting points too...check it out!
This tasty (and super cute!) idea was contributed by frequent guest blogger, Jane Maynard, who has her own fantastic blog called This Week for Dinner...check out the recipe and then whip up some sherbet watermelon of your own tonight!
Lastly, we just couldn't resist including this patriotic idea from Make and Takes...
Just in time for the Fourth of July picnics, these adorable paper lollies make festive centerpieces, pins to wear or even prizes for the games you'll play that day.
Great ideas like these are popping up all the time so but sure to bookmark Make and Takes and you won't miss a single one!
