Make in only 15 minutes...

Welcome March!



March is a month that brings me so much hope.  It always seems the weather improves considerably, the days are longer and new life seems to be springing up everywhere.  I am always so happy to enter into this month!


And with this joy, comes a newfound motivation to be active.  Active physically, spiritually, in my home, in my relationships, really in all parts of my life.  So, this month, we plan to focus on things you can do in a small chunk of time.  If you have 15 minutes, what is a project you can complete?  Or something in the kitchen you can accomplish?  Or a way to improve your spiritual life?  We are going to talk about small things you can do in 15 minutes in the areas of eat, pray, nest, make and play.  We hope you enjoy!


Without further ado, here is the first of our 15 minute projects...


My daughter and I completed an incredibly simple craft for Valentine's Day this year that took very little time and could easily be modified for many other occasions.


  
We cut a potato into a heart shaped stamp and used paint to stamp muslin bags for her friends at school.


Then we melted old bits of crayons in a muffin tin in the oven (about 250 for 5 minutes or until melted) as a treat for her everyone.


She loved creating them, but she was even more excited to hand them out to her friends!


The bags were so easy to make and would be great for birthday parties, baby showers, wedding favors or any event where you need a sweet bag to hold a treat!


Happy quick crafting!
