Facebook Fan - Hobby Lobby Giftcard {Giveaway} ends 8/30

Happy Friday my crafty friends! It's not every day I get to write "It's time to celebrate!" This past week I reached a HUGE milestone for myself and my blog on Facebook. I surpassed 7,000 fans and I couldn't be more excited. {I get butterflies in my stomach thinking about it!} It's been a fun, crafty ride w/this blog and I really hope I have inspired you in some form or another. Not many people can say it, but I really do love my "job."

To celebrate my accomplishments, I asked everyone on Facebook where they love shopping for their craft supplies. It was between Hobby Lobby, Joanns and Michaels. By a landslide, Hobby Lobby won the survey. So in celebration, I threw some confetti in the air and decided a giveaway was in order. If you haven't guessed - today I'm giving away a $25 giftcard to everyone's favorite craft store - Hobby Lobby. Just enter below for your chance to win! Good luck everyone!

Pizza Making {Busy Bag Idea}


Pizza Making {Busy Bag Idea}

My son {like most young kids} likes to pretend to cook things up. He's always mixing and measuring things from his pretend kitchen items, to later bring to us for 'eating.' It's amazing how big his imagination is - even at the young age of three. I just hope he keeps his cooking skills up {and his future wife appreciates it!}

So today's post is all about a Pizza Making Busy Bag Idea I recently put together for my young inspiring chef. Majority of the pieces are made out of felt and overall, this DIY craft is super easy to put together. Plus you can customize this building kit to what colored felt you have on hand {using up those scraps you may have floating around!}

What kid doesn't like making pizza? So make a pretend set for your child today!
