DIY Decorated Herb Pots

By Laura Bray

These decorative herb pots will bring a little sweetness to your garden. Or how about a hostess gift? One of the best reasons to use a glue gun is speed. Let’s say you are leaving for a party in about an hour and you need a hostess gift. Glue guns to the rescue! You can put together little projects like these herb pots in very little time. In fact, if you don’t want to wait for paint to dry, you could just write the names of the herbs onto the wood plaques, glue them to plain pots (or decorative ones you bought at the store), and you would be done in all of five minutes. Here’s how to do a slightly longer version, but it’s still quicker than you think!

Snow Day Activity Jar

 

Snow Day Activity Jar

By Laura Bray

When I was a little girl, growing up in Ohio, I loved snow days! My sisters, brother, and I would eagerly listen to the radio as we ate our breakfast, hoping to hear our school’s closure. Now, as a mother, I am guessing my mother didn’t quite feel the same way about snow days. Four kids, housebound? Not so much fun from that side of the story! This Snow Day Activity Jar might help ease the pain for all those moms out there. It’s easy to make, and I’ve included a printable of suggested activities, that will keep your children busy and quiet. At least for a minute or two.

I’m always looking for ways to make our family dinner time more fun and I often turn to different cultures to find inspiration. Chinese New Year is coming up on February 8 this year, so we’ll be ordering in some Chinese food and I’ll decorate our table for the occasion. I decided to dress-up some chopsticks to make the table look really fun!
