Our next crafting project was chosen because of the upcoming Independence Day holiday. Technically, it's DIY Lanterns and we are using solar powered tops, but you can also put a battery operated tealight in it or if you don't put the top on you could use a candle. If you use red, white and blue glitter like we did, it's perfect for the upcoming 4th of July holiday. Make it a family crafting pro

It's easy, fun and you and your friends can match

We're on the heels of another fantastic St. Jude Radiothon, together we raised $74, 246 for the kids and research at St. Jude. The Douglas County Association for Home and Community Education (HCE) are also helping kids, but in a different way. They need sewing materials for quilts donated and if you are a quilter, YOU can make the difference.
