More times than not, moving is an emotional time. You are leaving behind a home that often times has many memories tied to physical objects. Within those walls you may have brought your child home from the hospital. On that staircase, your teenager may have posed for their high school dance portraits. In that backyard you may have celebrated your retirement party. Whatever the association, the physical appearance of the front of that home may forever hold a special place in your heart. Or at least I knew this was the case for my family...
Every year come January, I tend to get that ping of sadness as I box up all my Christmas decorations. As wonderful as it is to have some semblance of normalcy back into my home, I so miss the twinkling lights and holiday decor. As one box of holiday decor is put away, I love taking out the next holiday's box and continuing to make my home as festive as possible. However, this year I realized just how minimal my Valentine's Day decoration collection was and decided to step up my game!
Are you a book lover? Or perhaps just love the classic look and simplicity of a crisp page within a novel? Then I have a project for you! This fun and easy craft is not only a perfect way to express your love for all things books, but also is a unique and classic way to decorate!
This year for the holidays I knew I wanted to craft a special gift for my daughters and nieces. A gift that could be considered a game or toy, but that could also be considered a quieter activity (what parent doesn't love some quiet time... am I right?!). I brainstormed for a while but kept being drawn to the idea of a game. It may just be the occupational therapist in me, but I am all about visual learning and fine motor activities that can be incorporated into play time. This is when I decided to create a personalized memory game!
You've likely heard that someone is more prone to complete tasks if they are written down. Easy to see, easy to remember, easy to cross off... makes perfect sense. You've also likely heard (or experienced) that there is something very gratifying about being able to physically cross off a completed task. These well-known facts have led to the ever popular, TO-DO List.
