Steph and I just returned from our very first blogging conference. The conference is called Haven in Atlanta, GA. It's a three day conference for DIY bloggers offering blogging business classes, hand-on workshop to try new tools, techniques, and products, opportunity to connect with other bloggers, and time to interact with 20+ brands in attendance.
There are so many resources for sparking creativity and imagination: blogs, videos, old craft books & magazines. A trip to the library or used book store is in order for finding vintage ideas that can be made 'new' using current tools and materials. I’ve come across books, pamphlets, and magazines in my own thrifting that offer a wealth of ideas.
This journal idea was found in the 1998 book, At Home for Christmas*.
When the grands/nephews ask Mother Daughter Projects to make them something, well, this grandma and aunt can't say no!
Tyler, the older of the two, asked us to make a submarine for his stuffed animal friend and of course, Andrew, wanted one too. The submarine had to be "like Mickey's" from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. He directed us to the cartoon episode where we could find a picture of it so we could do our "research!"
We came up with a similar enough looking submarine, that floated, and pleased both of the boys. Take a look at how we made the subs from mostly recycled materials.
For a play date at Camp Oma, a tent is a must. I designed one that is super portable, easy to store, and sets up in a hallway. It’s adjustable to fit most any hallway.
Like many around the country, we have a Kohl’s store that is closing. Merchandise has been discounted and as stuff is sold and fixtures emptied, the fixtures themselves are being sold. On a recent trip to the closing Kohl’s we scouted the fixtures to see if there was anything we could use in our homes or in relation to Mother Daughter Projects.
