DIY Dowel Riding Horse Tutorial from A Beautiful Mess here. I see so many cute DIY presents/projects for kids that I don’t post because lots of them are just so complicated and you can get them cheaper at IKEA or Target. This project is really easy and you could even customize the horses with the child’s hair color, eye color, favorite color etc…

DIY Make a Mini Twin Plush Doll. I remember my Grandmother sewing mini versions of my clothing for my dolls. Did you know you could buy blank dolls at Hobby Lobby? I didn’t. Tutorial at A Beautiful Mess here. *See also DIY Stuffed Doll from Child’s Drawing here.
This blog is for my crafting alter ego. I did lots of crafts with my very artistic mother growing up and continue doing them with kids now. I love really good kids' crafts that hold their attention and mine.
