My blog is an outlet for my creativity. I love to share craft and DIY tutorials along with the occasional tips on organization and cooking. I really enjoy answering my readers questions and being inspired by other’s creativity. I actually started my blog as a way to vent about trying to get my children to eat healthier meals. It quickly turned into something else completely. I would definitely say that I am a craft blogger now. Mom 4 Real has even been nominated as one of Babble.com ‘s top 50 craft blogs! Super exciting!
Turn a Chalkboard into a Mirror
I took a hideously dark mirror and turned it into a chalkboard. I got a huge response on this project, and it was so simple to do!
Make a Camera Lens Catch Leash
I made a leash for my camera lense cap because I kept losing my lense cap...life saver!
Mason Jar Sewing Kit
I keep mine on my desk for quick use. It is so adorable and they make great gifts for teachers, neighbors, or kids going off to college.
My daughter and I made this together...truth is, she did most of the work. Her headbands and ponytail holders were everywhere...this really helps to keep them organized.
Make a Puppet Theatre from a Pallet
I just posted this, and it is instantly one of my favorite projects, ever! I made this puppet theater out of a wooden pallet and now my daughter has a place to play and put on shows right in our own backyard...it was really easy too!
