In celebration of their 4th year of blogging, Se7en has invited a group of bloggers to contribute a list of 7 + 1 things. If you click over today you will find my list of quotes that inspire me as a mother and as a creative person! Check them out and let me know what you think!
Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you know that I'll be posting lightly over the next couple of weeks because the kids and I are taking a short vacation and I want to enjoy the last bits of summer while I can. I hope you all are making wonderful memories with your children too!
If you want to know a little more about me and especially my thoughts on creativity for children and trying to find balance as a single mom then check out my interview on Rhythm of The Home. I would love to hear your thoughts so please check it out!
With Earth Day coming up on April 22nd, I'll be sharing crafts that make use of items from your recycling bin! I'm continuing the annual series, "What Can You Make From...", and hope you enjoy some new finds along with inspiring projects from previous years.
First of all, thank you so very much to the wonderful Se7en family who took time out of their busy lives to create this adorable little paper crow (and shared a tutorial too) and then painted up a whole murder of crows (yes, that's what you call a group of crows!) just to celebrate The Crafty Crow's 4 year anniversary!
I had hopes of doing a big celebration and introducing a new project but time and life got the better of me and I will have to save that for another day.
The Crafty Crow regularly has over a million page views a month which astounds me and at the same time makes me very happy knowing that I have created something that hundreds of thousands of you find useful and keeps you coming back for more. Thank you for your support, your lovely emails, and your submissions without which none of this would be possible!
Today is the final day to vote in the Parents Best Craft for Kids Blog competition so this will be my last post asking for your vote :) Thank you so much to everyone who has already voted for me! I still need some more votes so if you haven't voted but were planning to could you spare a few minutes today to vote for The Crafty Crow? A heartfelt thank you to everyone for your support!
There's only a few more days to vote in the Parents Best Craft for Kids Blog competition and I really need your vote. I know it's a pain and I hate to beg because I know you have to register to vote and all and no one likes to have to do that but if you can take a few minutes to support my efforts here I would really really appreciate it. I haven't posted about it too much because I hate to bother you with it and, frankly, it's embarassing - I know you come here to get craft ideas and not to be bugged about voting in some competition. But, it would mean so much to me so please consider taking the time to vote for The Crafty Crow. Thank you, thank you!!
I hope you enjoy all the great art and craft projects that I feature here on The Crafty Crow and if you do, would you consider voting for me over at Parents.com in the Best Craft for Kids category? I would really appreciate it! Thank you so much!
