Are you feeling crafty this Summer?

We are pleased to announce our new category

It's off to a great start with these new projects:

Beaded Flower Banner:

Looking for some easy sewing projects to do this summer? Then our beaded flower banner may be just the summer sewing project for you! It's an adorable mini banner featuring lots of beadwork and easy-to-do embroidery stitches. So if you are looking for some beginner sewing patterns, then give this beaded flower banner a try! It would also make a fun project to teach your kids how to sew by hand. And besides, doing some kids sewing projects can be a great summer-time activity.

Easy to Make Bird Feeder:

Turn a cute teacup and saucer into an easy to make bird feeder. We will show you step-by-step how you or even your kids can make this homemade bird feeder. Then once you know how to make your own bird feeder from a simple teacup, you could have a whimsical tea party for all your feathered friends. How cute would that be! We made one for bird seed and one as a bird bath.

Summer Cupcakes:

Need some cupcake decorating ideas for a summer party? Try these fun-in-the-sun printable cupcake toppers. These cupcake toppers are an easy way to turn ordinary cupcakes into a tropical paradise for your party. We made our cupcakes look like a sandy beach and we used some sugar wafer cookies for the palm tree and the flamingo for some added fun.

Summer Coloring Pages:

Need a quick and fun activity for your kids? Just print out our summer coloring sheets, and grab some crayons! Finding free kids printable activities, like our summer coloring pages, is a great inexpensive way to keep your little ones busy. So if your kids are bored, have them color you a beautiful work of art for you to proudly display. Happy coloring!
