Crafty Friends

Lucas has been in bible school the past 2 weeks but that doesn't mean he hasn't been crafty! Here are a few things that he's been up to.

As you know from previous posts, Lucas loves crafting with his mom. He saw my flamingo diamond paint by number kit and wanted to try one for himself. Lucky for him, we found one that was just perfect for him, a baseball themed kit!

Here are the kits that we used. Lucas's came from Hobby Lobby and the flamingo kit was ordered online through Amazon.

These are so much fun! I wasn't sure how Lucas would do with it, but he loved doing it as much as I did.

We also did a craft with a friend. Our neighbor Brenna wanted to be crafty with us one afternoon. Here is what she wanted to make.

Bead Bracelets



Step 1: Measure the length according to your wrist so your bracelet is the perfect length and use your scissors to cut the yarn.

Step 2: String your beads on the yarn.

Step 3: Have a friend or grown up tie the bracelet on to your wrist. It's done!

Check back soon for another Craft with Lucas!

Lucas was in baseball camp this week so we will continue with a Craft with Lucas next week.

This week I'm thinking about where we get our inspiration from. Family? Friends? Work? Somewhere else? All of the above?

In February I started working in the cafeteria at my son's school. I wasn't sure what I would think about it at first, but I love it! There's just something about being around kids that lifts your spirits.

I wear an apron when working in the cafeteria so everything that I may need to help out the kids is easy to get to. My best friend sewed me some fun aprons with flamingoes and Seminoles on them and that got me thinking. I should be able to crochet an apron!

I went to my go to site,, to see what kind of free apron patterns I could find. I found a perfect simple apron pattern and hope to get it done over the summer so I can wear it next school year!

Popsicle Stick Crafts

The first week of summer is almost over and we have already been crafty! Here is the first Craft with Lucas.

There are some many things that you can make with popsicle sticks! Here is one that we tried out this week.

Popsicle Stick Spear Decoration


Popsicle sticks
Craft glue
Paint color of your choice
Paint brush
Sheet or towel to do your craft on

Here is how we did this craft:

First paint the popsicle sticks. (You'll have to wait a few minutes to let the paint dry before you can go to the next step.)

Next, get your craft glue ready. We made a triangle first.

Then put together the bottom part of the spear.

Once the glue was dry on both pieces, we connected them with 2 rows of popsicle sticks.

And that's it! That's how you make a popsicle stick spear!
