DIY Easter Projects for You & Your Kids!

Angle View My Peeps Easter Treat Holder

Today’s inspiration is all about preparing for Easter.  This morning my daughter asked me if we would be doing anything for Easter since we didn’t really do much for St. Patrick’s Day.  (I generally try to decorate our home, even if it’s only a tiny amount, as well as to do or make something a little extra special for that particular holiday to make it more memorable.)  Well, with all that is going on around the world with COVID-19, I admit our St. Patrick’s Day didn’t quite live up to past ones.

Happy World Storytelling Day!

CTMH Story by Stacy Storytelling Cards

Happy World Storytelling Day! Given all that is happening and how quickly things are changing from day-to-day, now is the PERFECT time to scrapbook these moments (if you are a scrapbooker) or simply start a journal if you’re not a scrapbooker. We are making history. These moments that we are experiencing and the things that we are in disbelief about (like the HUGE demand for toilet paper!?) will be what is written in future history books. We are living it. Each of our experiences will be unique but also the same to some extent. While we think we’ll never forget these days, our brains will write over some of the exceptional details that are so fresh right now in order to make room for new memories. Preserve your experience!

Let’s Celebrate International Correspondence Writing Month

InCoWriMo Graphic

Did you know that February is International Correspondence Writing Month or also known as InCoWriMo?  It’s true!  I had never heard about it until recently and I’m pretty jazzed about it.  Really.  How often do you receive a handwritten card or note from someone these days?  Not often I would imagine.
