I love decorating for the holidays but I’ll be honest I’m not very crafty. I look and click and pin fabulous ideas I find from other bloggers (you can see a few pinned on our Christmas Craft Ideas board) but I never feel I have the skill to complete some of these ideas. If you are like me, then I have the perfect craft for you. A 5-Minute Christmas Wreath.

Halloween may only be one night but you can celebrate with your kids by working on crafts together. We've collected a handful to keep you busy.

I’m no photographer but Jennifer Pearson is and at a Panasonic LUMIX event she shared some great tips on how to take good pictures.

Winter is in full swing. Now kids can see just how much snow is on the ground with this fun craft that was inspired by Pink and Green Mama. Instead of being a small snowman ruler, we made ours an actual stake for the ground and used Arctic creatures for inspiration.
You’ve bought the gifts and the stocking stuffers, now the wrapping begins! But all those people on your gift giving list can mean a lot of boxes to wrap. The paper looks nice under the tree or when you present it to a friend but how long is the gift going to stay wrapped? If you think all that paper is wasteful, there are more environmentally friendly ways to present your gifts. Below are just a few ideas.
