Enjoying New Crafts

My husband is a teacher, so we don't have a lot of extra money. However, a few years back, I found a great way to beautify my home without spending thousands upon thousands of dollars. I started crafting, and it was amazing to see the difference that it made. Within a few short weeks, I was able to perk up my boring home and add a lot of visual interest to things outdoors. This blog is all about making your place more beautiful by enjoying some fun, family-friendly crafting time. You never know, you might be able to create a gorgeous wreath or update your home's look--without spending a lot of money.
