St Patty’s Day Banner Sewing Tutorial

Dental Health

Did you know February is dental health month?  With all of the Valentine’s candy consumed, I suppose it makes perfect sense.  To help my kiddos remember to brush regularly I created a week long calendar for them to mark their morning and nighttime brushing.  After completing it they get to return it for a special prize.  PDF Download Some good prizes would be:  tooth eraser, pencil, kids flossers, new toothbrushes etc.

Wreath GIVEAWAY

I love my St. Patrick’s Day inspired wreath so much I’m giving away a mini version of it!    It really is an “anyday” color scheme, so who cares when you put it up.  In fact, when I’m done with it on the front door it will go perfectly in my downstairs bathroom!The mini version is approximately 10 inches in diameter and will have 3 small “clip on” flowers just like the original so the wreath could be interchangable for another season.  I’m all about being dual multi-purpose!  Here is the mini one.  I’m sorry I don’t have a fancy camera and this was the best shot I could get this morning.
