Cat Bookmark

Everyone in my family loves cats. 

We think they're silly and they're fun. 

We love to cuddle with them and pet them until they purr. Don't you just love the sound of a cat purring?

So, of course, we had to add a pretty orange tabby cat to our growing pile of animal bookmarks.


This cat bookmark is very simple to draw, just follow the step-by-step tutorial.

In no time, you'll have a super-cute cat peeking over the top of your current book.

Yummy Popcorn Treats for Your Next Family Movie Night

I absolutely love family movie nights.

Often, we pick out a good movie, grab a couple of pizzas, and spread a blanket on the floor for a pizza picnic movie night. It never fails to make everyone happy.

But, pizza is not the only food that is perfect for a movie night. There are a ton of snack choices, but one of my favorites is popcorn. While it's delicious with just butter and salt, there are some fun ways to make it special


Whether you like sweet or savory, you'll find some great options in this list. Pop up a batch for your next family movie night.

No-Sew Valentine Pencil Toppers

One thing I love about Valentine's Day is the chance to make small gestures to let others know how special they are.

Other times, it's a small gift to say "I was thinking about you today."

These simple No-Sew Valentine Pencil Toppers are a fun little gift to give your friends. They're easy to make and easy to personalize for each individual person. 

I can't think of anyone that wouldn't love receiving this simple Valentine's Day gift.

Yummy Valentine's Day Treats Your Kids Can Make

My girls love to help in the kitchen.

They're getting to the age where they can do more and more of the work themselves. I love this because the more they do in the kitchen the more confident and capable they become.

Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to find some treats that my girls could make themselves.

Some of these Valentine's Day treats only involve putting a few things together, others are simple baking projects. But, all would be perfect for older kids and tweens to make themselves.

Polar Bear Bookmark

We never have enough bookmarks at our house.

I don't know what happens to them. But, I suspect they're hanging out the missing socks and hair ties.

Where do those things disappear to?

I'm constantly grabbing any scrap of paper I can find to mark my place just because I can't find an actual bookmark.

I'd prefer something cute, like this adorable peeking polar bear bookmark.


Don't worry if you don't think you're very good at drawing. This polar bear it very east to draw and I'll walk you through the process step-by-step. 

This easy craft is perfect for kids and tweens, though they may need a little bit of adult help with the art knife.
