Lamp Post BOO!

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Sometimes I struggle at holiday decorating.  Only because it’s so time consuming and I feel like I don’t have much time.  Anyone else feel that way?  Okay.  So I’ll level with you.  It might also have something to do with the fact that sometimes I think that I’m not incredibly crafty.  Okay.  I think that often.  Like I’m not all thumbs when it comes to crafts, but I’m pretty particular and need things to look just right.  One minor imperfection and I can’t let it go.  Whenever I see said completed craft that looks kind of strange or has a tiny blemish I cringe.  Of course I don’t cringe at other people’s crafts.  I don’t notice their mistakes.  Only my own.  I’m an insecure crafter.  It’s a complex.  I must overcome.  Anyone else have this problem?

So I struggle with time and being an insecure crafter.  I really do want to be more secure in my crafting abilities.  Really I do.  Maybe I need lessons?  Probably.  Crafters Anonymous?  Definitely.  I see all of these cute ideas everywhere.  Tons and tons of cute ideas.  I pin all of them right here on Pinterest, but then I never do them.  Or if I start the project I never finish it.  I’m airing all of my guilt today, right?!  My name is Tara and I’m a craftaholic.  I bet there is a group for that… Honestly I do need to be better at finishing the projects that I start.  It’s a wonder that I can actually sit down at the computer and type blog postings when I’m such a spaz when it comes to everything else.  You laugh?  I may have the focus for some things, but with crafty projects… Well, I turn into that dog Dug from the movie “UP”.  It’s true.  Maybe you are totally laughing, because you think that my blog postings are exactly like that???  Oh my.  I really am insecure.  But I’m working on my insecurities.  Both craft related and non.  I’ve decided that the first step (remember I’m a psychology educated gal) in the process would be simple crafts.  If I do something simple then I will finish it and it will be perfect because it will be really difficult to mess up something so simple.  It’s that simple.

Here is THE easiest DIY Halloween yard decoration that I’ve ever made.

Seriously the easiest.

It’s dedicated to all the Dugs in the world.

I give you…

The Lamp Post Ghost Tutorial!

 

In front of our house we have an ugly light post.  I’m sure it was beautiful in its time.  Now it’s just quite dingy looking.  It’s super old.  Original to the neighborhood when others have been replaced.  The lamp doesn’t even work so I’m not sure exactly why it still in front of our house.  Maybe I should be digging it up…  One day we will just replace it?  Maybe?  Probably.  In its prime it was a gas lamp.  Then it was converted to electric way before we moved in.  However, the “electrician” (previous home owner who was a medical doctor and had no idea about how to be an electrician) didn’t do a very good job.  It quit working so the “electrician” then cut the line and left this random wire in the basement that operates the lamp post only it plugs into nothing.  No outlet.  No switch.  No lit lamp post.  So you get the idea.  We are left with an antique lamp post that has absolutely no use just standing in our front yard.

 See?  It’s not the most beautiful thing in the world.

BUT recently when I looked at that old lamp post I saw something different.

I saw a ghost.

So I decided to create one.  A lamp post ghost.  So simple that even a 6 year old could do it.

ghost

 And it can be created in record time.  By the 6 year old.

To create the ghost I purchased 3 yards of white drapery fabric.  It was on clearance at less than $3 a yard.

You could just as easily use a white sheet.

Banjo used a black Sharpie to make the ghost’s eyes and mouth.  Then we just threw the whole thing over the lamp post and there you have it:

Our Lamp Post BOO!

You can transform your own lamp post for Halloween and it will look super dandy.

The Loomy Awards!

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I am so excited to introduce to you Dandy Giveaway Fans about the First Annual Loomy Awards!

loomyawards

You know all those fun rubber band bracelets that your kids and their friends are constantly wanting to make or wearing? It’s honestly the new trend with them now and they are loving it! Well, the Loom Boom was invented so your child can have somewhere to store all those rubber band bracelets instead of lying them around the house for your baby to chew on or the dog or vacuum to swallow up. Genius!

Well, Loom Boom has decided to start their  First Annual Loomy Awards!

The Loomy Awards are sponsored by The Original Loom Boom, a first-of-its kind product intended to organize, display, transport and share your loom bracelet creations. Winners will be chosen from four categories: Best Bracelet, Coolest Charm, Wackiest Wearable, and Best Loom Boom. Three winners will each receive a $250 gift card, and one grand prize winner will receive a $500 gift card! Plus, all winners will receive a special edition of The Original Loom Boom! Entries can be submitted on The Original Loom Boom’s Facebook page beginning on March 30, 2014, and winners will be announced on a live web award show April 30, 2014.

I personally think this is such a fun contest for kids. It really brings their creativity side to life and allows them to become self motivated to do something just for them.

So, hurry up and get your kids going on their rubber band bracelets and send the pictures over to The Original Loom Boom’s facebook page. Lots of amazing prices for the top three winners!!

And then head on back April 10th because we are giving away one Original Loom Boom to one Dandy Giveaway Fan!

 

Kiwi Crate {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I wake up every morning with every good intention of busting out a fabulous Pinterest-worthy craft that is new, mind-stimulating, creative, and age-appropriate for the kids.  This rarely happens.  You know how it goes.  You finally come with the idea, you hunt down the supplies, you’re constantly interrupted by meals, snacks, diaper changes, phone calls, important emails, the UPS man, the broken disposal, etc. etc. etc…you gather your kids, enthusiastically explain the project, they start throwing the supplies, water is spilled, you’re running around like a maniac cleaning up messes instead of actually having a bonding/teaching moment, and you throw your hands up the in the air and just start cleaning up.

kiwi-crate-PMS376I struggle with this a lot!  But don’t lose hope, mothers of America.  There is a box that arrives on your doorstep, organized into a them, chock full of supplies, ideas, and content to learn about.  This box of wonders is called Kiwi Crate, and though this might be the first monthly box for kids that we’ve tried, it won’t be the last.  My eyes have been opened as to what craft time can and should be like!

Untitled-15

We were sent the Busy with Bugs box, and to my boys, opening this box was practically like opening a box of candy.  Paint and scissors?!  We went to town.  This box is full of everything we could have needed–sponges, paint brush, pencil, painting boards, paper liners, cardboard tray, clear bottles, stickers, pipe cleaners, string, etc.  Even small pieces of scotch tape, pre-cut and peelable, was supplied.  You could take this box camping or on an airplane, and you wouldn’t find yourself missing any supplies.

Untitled-16

Picture instructions guided us all along the way and even incorporated questions to ask and talk about with the kids.  Additional activity suggestions make this the box that keeps on giving.  The ingeniously designed “no-fight” crate feature (which is what we received) allows you to add on supplies for a sibling for only $9.95.

IMG_9577Within the box was another firefly bug activity, which was a nice contrast to the first.  This was less messy, but needed more parental involvement.  They are both great for a variety of ages and interests and creative ability.  Ages 3-8 sounds just right.

Untitled-17These fireflies were a big hit!  Especially the glow sticks inside that make the fireflies glow in the dark.

Untitled-18

We tied one side onto a chair and let the boys lift and lower the zipline to see the bugs fly up and down.

Untitled-19

So are you wondering if $19.99 is worth the cost of an afternoon of glee?  Consider this: atleast in our box, we were sent high quality scissors and large bottles of paint that will be used long after today.  Besides the supplies, the box provides you with ideas, a lesson plan, and future activities so that you can save your brainpower on coming up with ideas and you save yourself the runaround of tracking down every small this-and-that supply.  So yes, I would say this price is fair.  Sign you and your cutey up!

One winner is going to receive their own Busy with Bugs Kiwi Crate!  ($19.99)

IMG_9566Because I was sent the winner’s prize box along with my review box, the winner will be responsible for paying shipping from me to you, via paypal invoice.  This also means that this giveaway is open to WORLDWIDE entries!  The box weighs 1.4 lbs. and will be sent from 02128, if you’d like to calculate the cost.

*This giveaway is open to worldwide entries.
*The winner of this giveaway will be drawn no later than the evening of Feb 21st and will be emailed.  If the winner does not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn.

{Giveaway} My Grafico Arts & Crafts ***ENDED***

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

At my house you will find loads and loads of scrapbooking supplies.  There’s some in my craft room upstairs and then boxes of it in the basement.  It’s quite sad really.  There’s so many items that literally have never even been used.  I’m talking paper, stamps, die cuts… you name it and I have it.  I think my problem is I would buy these massive packaged of paper thinking that I would use it, but then really only needed it for a few specific sheets.  Then I went through this stamping phase where I started collecting all of these different stamps and ink.  I don’t even want to think how much I spent on it all!  And now where does it sit?  In a box.  I’ve often wondered what it would be like to have scrapbooking supplies right at your fingertips.  No more of this traveling out to the store and having to buy big packs of paper just to get the few select ones you need or all of those die cuts…You can even forget about throwing your money away!  How you might ask?  With My Grafico Arts & Crafts!  It’s THE place to get those supplies digitally and at major savings!  All you have to do is print from the comfort of your own home.  Here have a look at just a sampling of what’s available at My Grafico Arts & Crafts:

{Giveaway} Fat Quarter Shop ***ENDED***

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

 

I have this thing for fabric.  The closet in my craft room is filled with shelves and shelves of it.  So many different patterns and colors.  Seriously yards and yards of it.  Much of it never even used for a project!  When I told the audiologist man that I wanted to make the bedding, curtains, and accessories for baby girl’s room he immediately said that I should be able to use fabric that I already have.  Of course that’s not possible.  Upon taking inventory of my fabric stash nothing jumped out at me and said, “This is perfect for baby girl’s room!”  So…  I’m on the hunt for the perfect fabric combinations for her room.  We have yet to paint her room, because I haven’t decided on the colors yet.  We do have until January, but  that’s going to be here before we know it, so I best get deciding! 

Lucky for me Fat Quarter Shop has so many different options when it comes to fabric!  Fat Quarter Shop also offers, excellent customer service, super fast shipping, exclusive quilting clubs/kits, and a large selection of fat quarter bundles!  I’ve been pouring over pages and pages on their website.  There’s so many options that I’m having difficulty with the decision making process!  I’m not particularly a fan of the color pink, so I’m trying to avoid that for baby girl’s room.  I guess my aversion developed from over exposure in my childhood.  🙂   But the more I look at Fat Quarter Shop I’m becoming more used to the pink idea.  However, I would still like to try to have minimal use of the pink hues.  🙂   Here are a few of my favorites:

   

                                                                  

 See what I mean about this being a very tough decision???  I really LOVE this one, but have no idea what other color to bring in to match with the yellow and gray.

 

 Suggestions???  🙂

Don’t have a little girl room to decorate?  Not a problem, because Fat Quarter Shop also has tons of fabrics perfect for home decor, quilting, and a little boy’s room!

How cute is this quilt kit from Sew Emma?

 

And this fat quarter bundle is perfect for a little boy! 

 In fact Fat Quarter Shop is giving away that Robot Factory Fat Quarter Bundle!

A $38 value!

{Giveaway} The Ribbon Retreat ***ENDED***

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Alright so I do have a craft/sewing room.  In fact I have an entire room in my home dedicated to this space.  Is it organized?  Probably not very well.  Ok it’s a disaster most of the time, but at least I know where everything is!  Kind of.  🙂    As we start to need use of that room in our house (as a guest room) then we will be adding some space in the basement for my craft room.  That’s the plan anyway.  If you have any suggestions on how to finish a basement please let me know, because I need a craft room!  🙂   Yep it’s a necessity that I cannot live without.  I’m always on the lookout for the perfect crafting items to add to my supply.  But who really has the time to shop for crafting supplies in an actual store?  Not me.  That makes The Ribbon Retreat is my new best friend!  Care to take a look at some of the items they carry that I’m also in need of more of?  Who am I kidding???  I’m always in need of more of everything!  🙂

The Ribbon Retreat has materials perfect for making a ribbon bow

Wired Ribbon:

 

And loads of other ribbon as well!

There’s also a huge variety of Ric Rac.  So many sizes and colors to choose from!

Can I just tell you that before the holidays last year I decided to make an advent calendar?  I hunted and hunted for the perfect Ric Rac and never found any that was perfect for my project.  How I wish that I had known about The Ribbon Retreat then!

Also at The Ribbon Retreat there’s more items that everyone is looking for…  like:

How about a way cute tutu?

 

 Or an adorable Newsboy Hat?

 

There’s even my personal favorite… FABRIC!

Here’s a few of the fabric selections from a collection titled ‘Just Dandy’:

I see a really dandy quilt in my future!  🙂

Basically if you are looking for it then The Ribbon Retreat has it!  And what’s being given away this week from The Ribbon Retreat?  A $25 gift certificate that’s what!  Thanks The Ribbon Retreat for such a dandy giveaway!  🙂
