In my world we are CA-RAY-ZEE busy - which can only mean one thing...Summer is approaching.  And if you are thinking Summer, I can think of only one thing that can make it sweeter...Popsicles!

If you've got 15 minutes to spare, and you happen to love heartstring pulling stories, you have got to check out this video.  My mom sent it to me about 2 weeks ago. I just can stop thinking about it.  It touches me on so many levels and reminds me that there are so many stories out there.

Sometimes in the crafting world, something comes along that is so crazy you honestly have to stop and say, “wait, is this a Google April Fools gone viral?"  Evidently...this is real.

I’m talking about arm knitting.

When I was a kid, dying easter eggs was a family tradition.  We'd all bustle over to my Grammy Yocom's house to hunker down in her kitchen and created our beautiful Easter creations.  The kitchen would be filled with that warm pungent vinegar smell that almost made me woozy.  Like settlers with a deer, we'd use every bit of our PAAS egg dying kit.  We'd punch out the circle from the back to make not only the egg drying rack, but also a series of toothpick tops.

God bless Sarah.  She’s an educator and also a stay at home mom with 4 young children!  That in itself gets her a page in my “Guide to Homespun Saints”.  Add on top of it that she has created a site dedicated to education through play, and you know she’s getting her own medal in my World.  Sarah’s site, Stay at Home Educator, is chock full of ideas that teach through hands-on fun.
